He disclosed that his administration has inaugurated the Judicial Panel of Inquiry to investigate complaints of police brutality and/or related extra judicial killings in the state, reiterating that the 24-hour curfew imposed in Enugu East, Enugu North and Enugu South Local Government Areas of the state is still in place.

Appealing further to the protesting youth the governor said: “Let us take back our hitherto peaceful Coal City from hijackers of the peaceful protesters and perpetrators of violence and criminality who do not represent our collective wishes”.

Calling on parents and guardians to restrain their wards from engaging in any unlawful conduct as well as the traditional rulers, religious leaders and stakeholders to help in calming frayed nerves, Gov. Ugwuanyi maintained that “Enugu is our common heritage, our home and we deserve to live, work and rejoice in it”.

Enugu State is in the hands of God!
