Ebonyi State Gov David Umahi Reportedly Orders Shooting Of Anyone Who Blocks His Convoy.

The governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi has ordered the shooting of anyone who blocks his convoy.

Mr Umahi gave this order on Saturday while narrating how his convoy was blocked the previous night by mourners at a wake-keep in the state.

The governor’s convoy was reportedly blocked along Onicha Road in Onicha Local Government Area of the State on his way back to the state capital from his Uburu, Ohaozara hometown Friday night.He alleged that one of his security aides lost his military rifle in the incident.

While receiving some guests at the State Executive Chambers in Abakaliki on Saturday, the governor expressed his fury over the incident, saying it is a criminal breach of the law.

“Yesterday night, I was coming back by 12 midnight. Of course, I had to stop over at the college to inspect projects, but when we got to Onicha, they blocked the road.

“Even with the litany of army and the police and everything, they did not even want to open the road. Then I said they should arrest all of them, but most of them ran away. I think they even took a gun of an army officer,” he said.

Mr Umahi said those who ran away would still be arrested and imprisoned.

He also said;

“Next time the ADC should order for a shoot. It is very illegal to block the governor. And if anybody is killed in the course of that, it is allowed in the law.

“And it is not me that is the problem, it is the common man, nobody should be oppressed…,”

The governor also announced a ban on wake-keep extending beyond 10 p.m. in the state.

“And I want it to be announced that henceforth, no wake-keep should go past10 p.m. If you must pass 10 p.m., take written permission from the chairman of the local government, and both the chairman and the person that requested will be held responsible if any problem occurs.

“This should be widely circulated and properly announced. My problem is not that they blocked the governor, but my worry is supposing that it was a smaller person that was passing, who had no army and police, they would have robbed the person.”

PREMIUM TIMES reported how two students of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti, were shot dead by police officers in the convoy of Bisi Fayemi, the wife of Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

  1. Our leaders are not deep thinkers...Look at how he is speaking like an emperor...This is one you raise minions will do things in your name and tarnish your image at the long run...

    1. Did he say 'what if it was a smaller person' Nigeria ntoor. He is free to move around beyond 10pm but others aren't. Fair enough, it's wrong to disrupt others because of a wake keep but his take on the whole issue is dictatorial.
