The statement noted that the four officials were “relieved of their duties with immediate effect”. And they include;Amos Ogbonnaya of Anuagata Development Centre; Mr. Jerry Okorie Ude of Okposi Development Centre and Mrs. Martha Nwankwo ofOhaozara-East Development Center.

They were replaced with Mr Tochukwu Uzor for Anuagata Development Centre; Mr. Henry Ugochi Ovoke for Okposi Development Centre; and Mr. Ernest Okorie for Ohaozara-East Development Center.

Mr Chidiebere Egwu was also appointed as Special Assistant on Internal Security and Utility (Urban) to replace Aniakor.

The Governor sacks the coordinators on the terms of poor performance to contain the rise of hoodlums attack in the state. Hoodlums had attacked and burnt down police stations in Umahi’s Ohaozara Local Government Area on Thursday.

The hoodlums destroyed other utilities in the state capital especially the decorative street lights installed in various parts.
