I didn't link Nnamdi Kanu with flooding terriorists in Ebonyi - Deputy Gov Igwe


The Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe says he has never linked with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu with the security situation of the state.
The Deputy Governor made this known in a statement issued and made available to newsmen by his Chief Press Secretary, Monday Uzor on Thursday.

 Igwe condemned a report some sections of the media alleging that he has declared that no member of  Eastern Security Network should be seen around the state anymore.

But  for clarity, he stated that he never met with government officials, security agents and members of the press in the state capital, Abakalik as contained in the write up, saying he has been away on state duties to Abuja.

The statement also read, "that the Deputy Governor never addressed any crowd and at no time  did he link Nnamdi Kanu with flooding Ebonyi state with terrorists against Fulani Cattle rearers doing their legitimate business in the state.

"That the  general public and peace loving people of Ebonyi State are by this statement informed that it is a malicious  report from  faceless individuals who are  jealous of the rising profile and peaceful disposition of His Excellency the Deputy Governor.

"That the author (s ) of the fictitious report are nothing but mischief makers who are  hellbent in  disparaging the hard earned reputation of the  Deputy governor out of envy.

"That the report is a calculated attempt to to incite the  people of the State in particular and South zone in general  against the Deputy Governor 
"That His Excellency the Governor had earlier exonerated IPOB/ESN from attacks in the zone , therefore His Excellency  the Deputy Governor has no reason whatsoever to be  discordant with the  genuine position of the Governor.

"That the Deputy Governor is conscious of his constitutional responsibly of assisting the Governor His Excellency Engr David Nweze Umahi to deliver on his mandate to the people of Ebonyi State.
"That the people of Ebonyi State, South East Zone  and indeed Nigeria should disregard the report  in its entirety.

"The Deputy Governor however pledges his unalloyed commitment to cooperate with the Governor to move Ebonyi State to the next level against every distractions."
