The Security Summit kicked off on a cordial note at the Government House in Enugu as the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, met with governors of the South-East.
In attendance in the meeting, which started about 10 am, are Governors of Abia, Okezie Ikpeazu; Ebonyi, Dave Umahi; Anambra, Willie Obiano; and the host, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.
The Imo State governor was represented by his deputy, Prof. Placid Njoku.
Also in attendance is the Commissioner of Police in Enugu, Mr Abdulrahaman Ahmad.
The closed-door meeting was still ongoing, while guests including royal fathers, members of the clergy, Ohaneze Ndigbo and security agencies, were left at the venue of the event.
However, some of the dignitaries at the event including traditional rulers and the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo, staged a walkout in protest of keeping them waiting without any information.
Before the walkout, the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province and Bishop of Enugu Diocese of Anglican Communion, Bishop Emmanuel Chukwuma, had addressed the audience.
Chukwuma, in his speech, said that it was unfair for the governors of the zone to treat them with contempt, adding that such would not happen elsewhere.
