Governor Ugwuanyi pardons 41 repentant militants

Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has granted amnesty to 41 youths in the state’s Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area who have renounced their militant activities in the area.

The youths handed over their weapons to the government after the government initiated peace talks to end several months of unrest and insecurity in the council area, which had claimed so many lives on both sides.

The event, held on Monday at the Igbo-Eze North LGA Pavillion, Ogrute in Enugu-Ezike, marked a significant milestone in the area’s several efforts for peace and stability, which have been pursued by several stakeholders for months.

The Chairman of Igbo-Eze North LGA, Prince Ejike Itodo, who represented Ugwuanyi at the occasion, described the event as the most important of all and the high point of the Christmas and New Year celebrations in the area.

He described peace and security as the beauty of government and thanked those who were passionate about a better Igbo-Eze North, adding that the significance of the event was that the people of Igbo-Eze North had sent the devil and its agents packing.
