Obi Abel Umahi Resigns As South-East Security Committee Chairman by HonNL: 12:45pm On Jun 07
Major General Obi Abel Umahi (rtd) has resigned as the chairman of the South East Security Committee which was formed on August 31, 2019

Umahi tendered his resignation in a letter dated June 4, 2021, entitled: “Resignation As Chairman South east Security Committee – Ebubeagu” and addressed to chairman of the South East Governor’s Forum.

Part of the letter which reads: “Since this Security Committee was formed, we deliberated and agreed on ways to raise security consciousness down to the community level in Igbo land, mode of operations, logistics and some types of equipment required, such as drones, vehicles etc.

We also crafted the Concept of SE Security.

Additionally, I chaired a 21-man Committee set up to draft a legal framework for the SE Security outfit. The committee was composed of members of SE Security committee, the Attorney generals of the five Se States and some prominent Igbo sons and daughters. The 21-man Legal Framework Committee was funded to completion by the Governor of Ebonyi State.

“On 11th April, 2021, SE Governors announced the formation of EBUBEAGU at Owerri. Subsequently, the draft legal framework produced by the 21-man Committee was reviewed by SE Security Committee members and the Attorney Generals of the five Se States to suit South East Ebubeagu Security outfit

The SE Security Committee thoroughly prepared and submitted the modalities, including the structure, for the take-off of EBUBEAGU to the Governors’ Forum during the security of South East Governors’ Forum, attended by the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and some other Igbo leaders a request that EBUBEAGU should be jointly rolled out as a matter of urgency and also funded by the Government of the five SE States. From inception to date, SE Security Committee was never funded at all in any capacity and not even an office space was provided.

At this juncture that EBUBEAGU will soon come fully on-stream, I respectfully request that Your Excellencies kindly permit me to resign my appointment as the chairman, SE Security Committee. in the spirit of my love to serve Ndigbo, i can assure you that i will always be available to advice on the success of EBUBEAGU at no cost, just as i served as the Chairman of South East Security Committee from 31 August 2019 till date at no cost directly or indirectly to the five South East State Government, groups and individual. I highly appreciate Your Excellencies for the opportunity you gave me to serve Ndigbo.

“Please be assured of my loyalty, respect and accept my highest regards of your esteemed considerations.” The letter was copied to Amb. (Prof) George Obiozor, president general, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and director general, South East Governors’ Forum.

in 2015 the major security problem we had was Boko
Haram and guess what? BH problem made Jonathan shift the election. this time we Got Boko Haram, Bandits, herdsmen crisis, UGM crisis and this is happening all over the Nation. APC in 2023 would tell you if Jonathan can shift the election date why can't we seeing the security issues in the country. while Jonathan on the other hand was doing all he can to reduce Boko Haram, this government will do nothing and keep shifting the election date till y'all are tired. so if you're thinking of waiting till 2023 to make a change thr ur Votes, Think again and think clearly. if ur citing fear of Army now to hit the street #June 12th I wonder what you'll cite in 2023

#June 12 protest is for Nigerians with foresight
#This is a protest to rescue ourselves and our country from
the hands of those bent on destroying it
#Last week alone over 300Nigerians were killed due to
insecurity. how many would it be this week??
#Can you beat ur chest and say I'm sure to survive it this
week??
#Are you living ur desired life?? why must Nigerians result to
alternatives when you can hold those responsible and
demand for what should be urs
#Nigerians this is the time to resist Tyranny, Oppression,
hardship and insecurity
#June 12 should not meet you at home
#Pay the price now so you would not be forced to pay it later
with or without ur wish

He's joining ESN soon.



ESN remains the only recognized security outfit in Igboland.

What is the essence of ebubeagu ebubepussu?
They should all go and join ESN, where they can actually be useful to their people, instead of being govt puppets.

Where is the unity of purpose?

Just to come together to fund a Joint Venture - they cannot achieve and the same people will have the loudest voice in Lagos and Kaduna matters.

He said the joint security network wasn't funded, hence his decision to back out.

Why form a joint security network when you won't fund it.

It seems like the right thing to do
