Ebubeagu - Ebonyi Orders Native Doctors And Traditional Medicine Dealers To Register For Security

Ebonyi state has prepared a ground for the launching of the regional security outfit, Ebubeagu Eastern Security.

This is as 'unknown gunmen' have not stopped to terrorize the state that is located in the eastern region of Nigeria.

Dave Umahi, the state governor, in the security council meeting displayed commanders of Ebubeagu in the thirteen local government areas.

The security council also agreed to form what is called Joint Youth Vigilante Committee in communities that have experienced communal clash.

But for the Ebubeagu to work well, the Ebonyi state security council will issue out directives that they have mandated the police to enforce.

The directive was given via a statement that Orji Uchenna Orji, Commissioner of Information and State Orientation, Ebonyi State released.

According to Orji, the reason for launching Ebubeagu is "on recent Killings in the state.

"We directed security agencies to do everything possible to bring perpetrators to justice.

"And must deepen collaborations and professionalism to fight the ravages of insecurity for state".

All native doctors and traditional medicine dealers in the state must register within seven days as part of security measures in the state.

They need to register with the Commissioner of Police, Commissioner for Health and Commissioner for Internal Security and Border Peace.

All wake keep activities in the state must end by 6pm - Ebubeagu and Security Agencies must enforce the wake keep restrictions.

Night clubs must not operate beyond 6pm.
