Members of Ebira Community in Owo, Ondo State have condemned some Ebira people who came from outside the community to commit crimes, leaving them in discomfortable position with their hosts.
In an emergency meeting held today, August 11 in the palace of Odeiyani (traditional head of) Anebira in Ondo state, HRH Zubair Dan Musa, the Odeiyani spoke bitterly over the insecurity situation across the state, particularly in Ondo North.
He particular expressed worry that names of Ebira boys featured prominently and were published all over the Media, on the recent attack on a Catholic Church in Owo.
He said that the perpetrators or criminals who were arrested by security agents in connection to the attack and happened to be Ebira, infiltrated the community.
“We will no longer allow any stranger to penetrate us in Ondo state from anywhere, to tarnish the good relationship we have established with the indigenes of Ondo state.
” For a fact which is known to all, including our hosts, Ebira people are known for good character, hardworking and loving minded.”
The community called on the Ebira people in Ondo state to re-strategize and watch properly, strangers that are coming into the community and other settlements within the State.
