By Chibueze Victor, Abakaliki
Governor David Umahi this Saturday raised alarm over the activities of miscreants suspected to be members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who have resorted to circulating all kinds of cheap lies and blackmails against him and Ebonyi State Government.
Governor Umahi who disclosed this in a press statement issued by his Special Assistant (SA) on Social Media, Emmanuel Igwe, said the miscreants have taken over social media where they dish out all kinds of unfounded lies in form of write-ups, audio and video recordings against him and his Government.
The Governor said in as much as he can’t dignify the miscreants by joining issues with them, it has become pertinent to let the public know their new antics so they can be wary of them.
Umahi who described the action of the group as the last kick of a dying horse, having now realized that their fraudulent activities in the name of IPOB have been exposed.
The Governor further warned the group to desist from character assassination and blackmails against him and his Government or regret their actions.
The Governor, further warned the unscrupulous elements indulging in this crime to bear in mind that the cybercrime prohibition Act of 2015 is still in force, and that anybody caught must face the full weight of the law.
He urged the general public to keep arms length with the miscreants and their activities as security agencies have been detailed to clamp down on them.
“My administration will continue to protect Ebonyi People against killer herdsmen and other insecurity problems” in the state.
