Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has directed security agencies to fish out AK47 wielding herdsmen who killed about fifteen persons in Nkalaha, Obegu, Amaezu and Umuhuali Communities in Ishielu Local Government Area of the State.
The Governor, who visited the affected communities in company of the Commissioner of Police in the state and other security chiefs, emphasised that the state government knew the identities of the attackers and would report them to the highest authorities.
Chief Umahi expressed sadness that the herdsmen launched such a brazen attack on innocent people when the state government was doing everything to protect them.
Governor Umahi expressed shock that the herdsmen vacated the entire Ishielu Local Government Area overnight after the attack.
He appealed to the communities to remain calm as government would track the perpetrators down.
