The Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, Sunday sacked his special assistant on security and utility (urban), Nchekwube Aniakor, Amos Ogbonnaya, Anuagata development centre; Jerry Okorie Ude, Okposi development centre; and Martha Nwankwo, Ohaozara-East development centre.
The reason according to a statement by the secretary to the state government, Kenneth Ugbala, was due to their non-performance and inability to prevent hoodlums from burning Police stations, creating social disorder in the state.
The three development centres were said to be in Governor Umahi’s Ohaozara local government, where hoodlums attacked and burnt down police stations on Thursday.
The hoodlums also attacked about three other police stations in Abakaliki, the state capital, on Wednesday.
Umahi immediately appointed Tochukwu Uzor, Anuagata development centre, Henry Ugochi Ovoke, Okposi development centre, and Ernest Okorie, Ohaozara-East development centre as replacements.
