Ebonyi Gov Umahi Sues For Peace With Bandits, Says They Are Our Children And He Wants To Empower Them

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi on Friday said bandits are ‘our children’, and called for negotiations with them and their empowerment.

The Governor made the declaration in Abakaliki at the presentation of 40 Toyota Sienna vehicles and 20 Hilux vans to security agencies for enhanced operations in the state.

The governor directed local government chairmen and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to identify the bandits and present them for debriefing to ascertain their grievances with government and the way forward.

“I want to talk to the bandits and empower them as we cannot continue to kill ourselves and destroy public infrastructure.

“The bandits are our children and I am pained when they or the security agencies are killed", he said.


  1. Which your children? The one in Sokoto that said he repented has gone back to the forest to continue from where he stopped.

    Umahi be careful o. Empowering? And they are busy giving birth to more bandits...

    1. The people they have been killing, kidnapping, raping and maiming are not his children?

    2. The fear of IPOB is the beginning of wisdom

  2. This APC governor. Lia Mohammed everywhere..

  3. Pretend like you do not know that hunger is the grievance of Nigerians.
    How many industries that can employ youths have you built in your state?
    How many scholarships have you given to young people to study or train in skills?
    You want to empower them with wheel barrows right?

  4. Is this guy for real

  5. If you understand politics,you will know that he cant come out openly to fight them because of the bandits connection yo Federal Government,behind he will definitely tell his men to finish them. It is wisdom.

    1. Except what you are saying is real he is saying rubbish.

  6. Stupid man that sold his soul to APC and Northern. God will punish him, for his betrayal to his people.

    Despicable liar!

  8. How have you empowered those unemployed youths that are not bandits❓

    Start your empowerment from there first.
    Create enabling environment for investors to come to your State.
    Build vocational centres with standardized curriculum and enrol unemployed youths.

    Do you know the youths from your State are highest in number among hawkers in Anambra and Lagos? That's because they are hardworking but lack empowerment❗

    Governor Umahi, your work is clearly cut out for you.
