The governors also embraced a security outfit called ‘Wonderful Tiger’ to rein insecurity in the zone. The security outfit would have its headquarters in Enugu to coordinate the vigilance groups in the zone.
The governors made the resolution in a communique during the maiden edition of south-east security summit held in Owerri on Sunday.
The communique was presented by Dave Umahi, Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Conference and Ebonyi governor.
They also resolved to set up a committee comprising security personnel, government officials and other relevant stakeholders to coordinate and monitor the implementation of the joint security platform.
During the meeting, the governors also condemned terrorism and banditry in every part of Nigeria particularly in the south-east where some security formations were destroyed.
The governors expressed support to the federal government efforts in tackling security challenges in the country.
They also resolved to pool resources as one united zone to fight crime and terrorism in the South-East zone.
