This is SERIOUS! So David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi State has ordered the immediate shooting of any one, who blocks his convoy!
Umahi gave this order on Saturday while narrating how his convoy was blocked by mourners at a wake-keep, the night before.
While receiving some guests at the State Executive Chambers in Abakiliki, the governor expressed his anger and described the incident as a “criminal breach of the law”.
He said: “Even with the litany of army and police and everything, they did not want to open the roads, then I said they should arrest all of them, but most of them ran away… Next time the ADC should order a shoot, it is very illegal to block the governor. And if anybody is killed in the course of that, it is allowed in the law.”
Mr Umahi also declared a ban on wake-keep extending beyond 10pm. He ordered that any wake keep organised to last longer than 10pm must be done with a written permission from the local government chairman, who would be held responsible alongside the perpetrator should anything go wrong.
