The communique reads in part: “What is most worrisome about the Ebonyi variant of Ebubeagu is that the recruitment, deployment and rules of engagement, including their command structure, is shrouded in secrecy. It is difficult, therefore, to hold them accountable for their crimes.

“What is more dangerous is the fact that since they operate in mufti, it is difficult to separate their activities from that of unknown gunmen and other criminals", it said.

The party called on security agents in the state to investigate all the crimes against it.

"We call on the security agencies to investigate the secrete detention centres set by the Ebonyi state government, and release the dying occupants immediately to rejoin their families and loved ones", they stated.

In a swift reaction, the Ebonyi Commissioner for Internal Security Mr. Stanley Okoro Emegha said such allegations were untrue and unfounded, adding that the Ebubeagu group that was under his ministry and will continue to do things that will secure the state.

“There is nothing like detention camps in Ebonyi government house. The people making this allegation are trying to draw attention but they have failed.

“They are in Abuja doing nothing and they think I should be here answering such things and it is not possible and I’m very busy trying to do things that will make the state secured.

“What we do is to arrest people and interrogate them and then hand over to police. And we will continue to do that” he stressed.
