Southeast governors in Nigeria have held a crucial meeting following threats to the peace of the states in the region.

The crucial meeting of governors from the geopolitical zone follows incidents involving persons identified to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The closed-door meeting held at Government House in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Sunday, November 8.

Governors present at the meeting includes Governor David Umahi and Governor Nyesom Wike.

The governors became worried when IPOB members were tracked by security personnel who noticed their presence recently in the Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state.

Recall that in a statement released through his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike had maintained that while Rivers state remains the home to all tribes and ethnic nationalities, the government is opposed to the presence and activities of the legally proscribed IPOB and whatever it stands for.

Governor Wike added that while the government appreciates the contributions from non-indigenes to the state’s political, social, and economic development, it would not allow any individual or group to cause violence, endanger lives, and property under any guise.

He reiterated that IPOB was clearly a terrorist group that existence and activities are strongly denounced even by the government and people of the south-eastern states of the country.
