The Ebonyi State Government on Monday threatened to clampdown on the members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for carrying out unlawful activities threatening the peace of the state.
The group had a week ago organised protest in Abakaliki against the now-suspended RUGA settlement plan for herdsmen and other policies of the federal government.
The Ebonyi government warned the group against carrying out such activities.
This was contained in a statement signed by Secretary to the State Government Dr. Kenneth Ugbala, and the state Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Chief Kenneth Uhuo, Ebonyi state.
The statement noted that constructive engagement with the federal government will address all grievances of the Igbo in the country, adding that any individual or group that has any genuine reason to agitate should do so through the platforms of the South-East Governors Forum, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other legitimate means within the country.
