The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, yesterday, said his government was ready to negotiate with unknown people who were beating and empowering them only if they were ready to open a new leaf and repent.

Umahi made the remarks at the Grand Finale of seven days of prayer and fasting at the Christian Ecumenical Center, Abakaliki, condemning the killing of police officers and the burning of police stations in the Southeast region.

He also spoke about his management's decision to empower repentant criminals, and said it was putting in place measures to ensure the empowerment of 3,000 Ebonyi youth, including those outside the state.

“Why are we killing security agencies and burning police stations. Our people are the ones burning police stations and killing security agencies. Most of the security agents being killed are from the Southeast. We have brought war to ourselves.

“Nobody has the capacity to come and kill us here. We are the only region at war with itself and we pretend. We are the architects of our problems. When war starts, the situation will become different. No place will be the same. No herdsmen will make attempt to kill us again,” Umahi said.

Umahi also warned that herdsmen within the region must conform to the culture of the people or face the music. “Never again to killings. Let them not try it again. That rubbish must stop. This madness in this country must stop. The situation calls for repentance, it must not continue .
