The South-East governors’ forum has set-up a seven- man committee to investigate the recent clash between the Nigerian army and the Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra (IPOB) members in Umuahia, Abia State.

The forum’s director of media and communications, Mr. Michael Udah, said in a statement that the committee is expected to submit its report on September 15.

Udah did not mention the leader of the committee, but said it was set-up to proffer lasting solutions to such problems and forestall future occurrences.

Udah noted that the governors were consulting with relevant stakeholders in the zone including the military to ensure clarity of positions.
