PEGASUS REPORTERS

Major General Obi Umahi (retd.), who was appointed as chairman of the South-East Security Committee has resigned his appointment as infighting among the South-East governors delayed the launch of the security outfit according to a Punch report.

The delay in the launch of the outfit on August 31 by the five southeastern governors has created a vacuum filled by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra’s Eastern Security Network.

General Umahi’s committee was mandated to draft an operational framework for the establishment of a South-East joint security outfit to cater to the security needs of the zone.

Gen. Umahi’s letter reads: “On 11th April 2021, SE governors announced the formation of Ebube Agu at Owerri. Subsequently, the draft legal framework produced by the 21-man Committee was reviewed by SE Security Committee members and the Attorney Generals of the five SE States to suit South East Ebubeagu Security outfit.

“The SE Security Committee thoroughly prepared and submitted the modalities, including the structure, for the take-off of Ebube Agu to the Governors’ Forum during the security of South-East Governors’ Forum, attended by the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and some other Igbo leaders, a request that Ebube Agu should be jointly rolled out as a matter of urgency and also funded by the governments of the five South-East states. From inception to date, SE Security Committee was never funded at all in any capacity and not even an office space was provided.

“I respectfully request that Your Excellencies kindly permit me to resign my appointment as the chairman, SE Security Committee. In the spirit of my love to serve Ndigbo, I can assure you that I will always be available to advise on the success of Ebube Agu at no cost.”

General Umahi’s resignation letter dated June 4, 2021, titled, ‘Resignation as Chairman South-East Security Committee – Ebube Agu’ was addressed to Chairman of the South East Governor’s Forum.
