Umahi gave the directives during a security meeting at the government house, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

“Anybody who is not a security person that is found with a gun must be demobilized by all means. Those that are calling for war, I will root them out.

“It is on note that leaders from both sides are the ones instigating the killings, crises and burning of houses.

“All political appointees that are absent in this security meeting are hereby suspended from office including the retired permanent secretary.

He threatened to arrest and prosecute all the stakeholders if the war ceases to abate immediately.
