Following the violence and killings reported in Emene, Enugu last weekend, which led to breakdown of law and order, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has summoned an emergency State Security Council meeting.

The meeting, according to a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, will hold at 2pm on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, at the Executive Council Chambers, Lion Building, Government House, Enugu. 

The statement added that “all security agencies in the state are expected to brief His Excellency, the Governor, fully, on the immediate and remote causes of the clashes, as well as advance measures to avert such occurrences in the future.”

It would be recalled that an attempt by the DSS to stop members of IPOB from holding a meeting in Emene resulted in heavy shooting by security agents during which several lives were lost.

While the Department of State Services, DSS confirmed that two of its personnel were killed by the IPOB, the pro-Biafra organisation on its part claimed that security agents killed 21 members and arrested 47 others aside from those who sustained injuries in the bloody attack. 

The Emene shootings on Sunday prompted Gov. Ugwuanyi to visit the scene, where he was assured that normalcy had returned.
