Insecurity: Southeast leaders meet in Enugu urge governors to be present not representatives

The South East Governors and leaders will be meeting in Enugu on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, for an "urgent meeting". 
The geopolitical zone, known as the most peaceful region in Nigeria, has been witnessing security challenges that have led to the killings of prominent Igbo sons, especially the late Prof. Dora Akunyeli, former Director-General of NAFDAC, and her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, by unknown gunmen. 
According to a memo by Ebonyi Governor and chairman of the Southeast Governors Forum, David Umahi, the leaders would in the meeting reach some decisions to "salvage our region that is presently battling with a high rate of insecurity". 
The meeting, he added, would be attended by the governors of the five states in the zone, Ohanaeze leaders and heads of religious and traditional institutions. 
"Our leaders begged that I request all governors of the Southeast to be present at the time and not in representative capacity, so that together we should reach some decisions to salvage our region that is presently battling with a high rate of insecurity." 
As a result, I respectfully request that you make every effort to attend this meeting for the sake of Ndigbo."
He wrote: "Your Excellencies and our highly esteemed leaders, in consultation with our Governors and President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, where a decision for an urgent meeting to be called was reached, may I therefore invite you for an emergency meeting of Southeast Governors, some leaders of Ohaneze, some of our political leaders, some of our religious leaders and some of our traditional leaders.
