David Umahi, the Executive Governor of Ebonyi state, has made some claims stating some Nigerians have been sentenced to 1,000 years imprisonment in Ghana, while others were sentenced to 500 years.
Governor Umahi made this known at Abakaliki Township Stadium during the celebration of Nigeria’s 59th Independence Anniversary and also the 23 years of Ebonyi creation
According to Governor Umahi “I get a lot of calls from people in Ghana, saying a lot of them are about to be sentenced. Some people have been imprisoned for 1000 years and some 500 years.”
“So, it is important that as Nigerians, we re-evaluate ourselves because a major cause of this is quick wealth among Nigerians and quest to travel aboard at all cost.”
Umahi further said, “We must, as Nigerians, do everything to uphold our cultural values and better ourselves outside the country.
“And in the area of cultism, let me say that the war has not started in Ebonyi State. So there is going to be a very intensive war against cultism as there will be whistle-blowers in this and we are going to reward them.”
