The youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, are the ones championship the initiative, this they say will help address the huge problem of insecurity in the region.
Mr. Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the president of Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council, who hinted on the planned creation of Ogbunigwe security outfit, pointed out that Amotekun, created by the southwest governors is a welcome development that ought to be replicated across all geo political zones in Nigeria.
Isiguzoro said Ogbunigwe will not carry arms and will only aide in intelligent gathering that will help in securing the southeast zone.
He also said the Ogbunigwe will incorporate all informal neighborhood watch in the region under one umbrella.
“Operation Ogbunigwe Regional Security outfit will be at the mercy of the South East Governors Forum and the state houses of assemblies. Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council will sponsor the bills in all state assemblies.
