The group further commended Governor Ugwuanyi for his prompt response to the situation saying, it’s a show of leadership on the part of the state’s helmsman.

The group also called on the media to exercise caution in the reportage of the situation to avoid playing in to the hands of those who wants to use the incidence to destroy the peaceful nature of the state.

Despite the incidence, Enugu State generally remains peaceful and will continue to be peaceful because it is a state in the hands of God!

Signed:

Dr. Edwin Obune,

National Coordinator,

Enugu Youth Coalition
