The chairman of Ohaukwu local government council of Ebonyi state Barrister Clement Odah has urged Governor Samuel Ortom to ensure his people comply to the seven days ultimatum issued by him to unravel the killers of Ohaukwu indigenes who was beheaded in Agila, Benue state .
He made the plead on Saturday in Abakaliki while clarifying publications on some national dailies alleging that he accused Orton of fueling boundary crisis between Benue and Ebomyi states.
Odah however said the paper caption was misleading as it never represented the body of the story.
He said:” I must say that the Benue people have not tried as much as us. There is a missing line. If the governor of Benue state has done as much as our governor has done in terms of commitment, by now ,this matter would have been a foregone issue.
“Recently, we heard that the governor has given seven day ultimatum to produce the killers of the four persons who were butchered on May 1st. We have the expectations that this ultimatum is coming in good faith. If it is coming in good faith, we expect the governor to go a step further. Should the Agila people fail to produce the killers of our people, we expect something more than mere rhetorics.
“The Benue state government if they are serious should be able to identify the Agila people who are working against the peace in this inter-state boundary areas and we expect sanctions, something beyond mere rhetoric. Seven days is counting and I believe very soon, it will be exhausted,” he said.
