From JEFF AMECHI AGBODO, Abakaliki
Ebonyi State Government has warned the Ibeto Cement Company over an alleged illegal entry into the premises of NIGERCEM Nkalagu in spite of court action over the ownership of the factory.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Martin Elechi, Dr. Onyekachi Eni, while briefing journalists at the Government House in Abakaliki, condemned the alleged illegal action of the Ibeto Group, which he said was a act of provocation against the government and people of the state.
He stated that by going into the premises of NIGERCEM illegally without the permission of the state government, the Ibeto Group had demonstrated an alarming desperation to acquire the God-given mineral wealth of the people of the state for its selfish interest.
“We, therefore, condemn the meddlesomeness of Ibeto Group in the affairs of NIGERCEM and warn them from taking any further steps that will threaten the peace of the host community of NIGERCEM and the state in general,” he said.
