No plan to disband Ebubeagu in Imo — Govt

Governor Hope Uzodinma

The Imo State government has announced that it has no plans to disband Ebubeagu— a notorious security outfit owned by the state government.

Mr. Declan Emelumba, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, made this known amid the indictment of the security outfit in unlawful torture, extrajudicial killings and witch-hunting of alleged enemies.

Emelumba stated that Ebubeagu is doing a nice job and that Imo State is not interested in the joint regional security patrol proposed by other South East governors.

He described the reports against Ebubeagu as unnecessary sentiments.

The government also warned criminal gangs and hooligans in the state to relocate from the state or face severe consequences.

Imo State is now safe and there is no need for people to worry about their safety, the government said according to Vanguard.
