By Uche Nwodo

South East leaders have agreed on how to tackle the demands of the youths from the zone and directed each state to set fund for the victims of ENDSARS protests in the region.

These were parts of the communique issued by South East Governors, National Assembly members, ministers, traditional rulers and women leaders on Thursday after their meeting at the Executive Chambers, Lion Building, Government House, Enugu State.

The Communique read in parts: "We advise all our youths that while our Governors are working hard to meet their demands, the destruction of public and private properties and killing of security agents and civilans will never be allowed to continue. We therefore, direct all lgbos, both in and outside Nigeria, to go about their businesses and should not participate in any form of unlawful protest and criminality."

The South East leaders in the Communique also sympathized with all the victims' families, including the Police, and other security agencies, as well as those who lost their loved ones and properties in the recent disturbances that followed the EndSARS agitations.

"The South East Leaders will engage our youths to ensure a sustainable peace in the South East and a glorious future for our children;

"Each State in the South East will set up a fund to assist the victims of the crisis, including the Police, the army and other security agencies, as well as civilians;

"The State Governors are committed to addressing the concerns of our young people that are peculiar to various States and will engage the Federal Government and their colleagues in other States to address the other issues that are national," the communique added.

The communique stated that the South East leaders have promised to ensure the protection of all ethnic groups living in the states within the region and thanked other parts of Nigeria, for protecting their people in their areas too.
