Youths in Aba in Abia state this morning took to the streets to demand an end to Ebubeagu militia in the state
Carrying placards with the inscription ”End Ebubeagu in Igboland”, the residents called on the state government to scrap the security outfit created by the South East governors in April 2021 to specifically secure lives and properties in the region.
The protesters alleged that members of the security outfit have repeatedly engaged in extrajudicial killings and that it is time for them to be disbanded.
Recall that in July, youths in two local governments in Imo state took to the street to also call for the scrapping of the security outfits after some of its personnel were accused of killing eight wedding guests.
