South-east Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rose from their closed-door meeting with the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in Enugu state with a resolve to visit the troubled Ukpabi Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area where scores of persons were gruesomely murdered last Monday.

The governors include Dr Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state.

Brieting newsmen at the end of their meeting, Ekweremadu said the governors would get their colleague governors from Anambra, Chief Willy Obiano and Rochas Okorocha of Imo state to join them in the proposed visit to the community within the week.

He said the visit is aimed at taking stock of the carnage in the area, with a view to taking a definite position as leaders of the south-east zone.
