The South East governors have condemned the transfer of Boko Haram suspects to prison facilities in the zone, particularly in Anambra State by the Federal Government.
The Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, while speaking to journalists shortly after a closed-door meeting held in Owerri, which lasted for about two and a half hours said, the relocation of the suspected terrorists was creating fear and tension in the zone, especially around the state where the prisons are located.
Okorocha said the prisoners should be relocated to Abuja instead, because of the presence of enough security over there.
The governors appealed to the Federal Government to have a rethink on the relocation of the of the Boko Haram suspects.
According to Okorocha, there was no plan by the governors to recall the Igbo in the troubled North, adding that “we are all part of the entity called Nigeria.”
