The Governor of the Ebonyi state, David Umahi, during the weekend raised the alarm about the growing activities of the criminals suspected of being illegal members of the indigenous peoples of Biafra (IPOB) who, according to him, have resorted to the circulation of all kinds of lies and cheap blackmail against him and his government.
The Nageria newspaper reports that the Governor of the Ebonyi state, David Umahi made it known through a press release signed and issued to journalists in Abakaliki by his Special Assistant (SA) in Social Networks, Emmanuel Igwe.
He said that the scoundrels have taken over social networks, where they show all kinds of unfounded lies in the form of writings, audio and video recordings against him and his government.
The Governor said that to the extent that he cannot dignify the wicked by joining problems with them, it has become pertinent to inform the public about their new pranks so that they can distrust them.
He described the group’s action as the last kick of a dying horse, realizing that its fraudulent activities on behalf of IPOB have been exposed.
“I warned the group to give up the murder of characters and blackmail them against my Government and me, or they will regret their actions,” he said.
The Governor also warned the unscrupulous elements that are pleased with the law to keep in mind that the Cyber Crimes Prohibition Act of 2015 is still in force and that any trapped person must face the full weight of the law.
He urged the general public to stay away from criminals and their activities since security agencies have been detailed to take drastic measures against them.
Umahi, however, assured people that his administration would continue to protect them from murderous pastors and address other insecurity issues.
