THE South-East Governors, on Sunday, met with leaders of the religious, traditional and socio-political institutions in the zone at the Government House, Enugu.
The PUNCH gathered that the meeting may not be unconnected to the Saturday’s attack on Governor Hope Uzodinma’s residence at Omuma in the Oru East Local Government Area of the state by unknown gunmen.
The hoodlums were said to have burnt the governor’s house and vehicles parked at the compound during the attack.
The PUNCH had reported that combined military, police, DSS killed the Commander of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, security outfit Eastern Security Network (ESN), Ikonta and six other IPOB members when they raided their hideout on early hours of Saturday morning.
A source told our correspondent that the Governors summoned the meeting following the heightened tension in the South East zone, occasioned by the report of northern traders in Enugu State attacking police and government officials with AK-47 rifles, blocked Enugu-Port-Harcourt road and razed down about 10 vehicle, including police patrol van.
