Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, says residents who do not wear face masks will be caned.
Ebonyi State Government has said that the attack on Umuogudu Akpu-Ngbo Community in Ohaukwu Local Government Area of the State was not carried out by Fulani Herdsmen as have been reported in some quarters.
In a communique by Dr. Monday Uzor, Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, the Ebonyi government said the attack which took place in the early hours of Monday, is linked to the age-long Crisis between the community and their Agila neighbours of Benue State.
The statement further revealed that the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Barr Eric Kelechi Igwe has swiftly responded by directing the Military and Police to move into the community to repel the attack and restore peace.
