Governors of the Nineteen northern States on Thursday took undisclosed security measures aimed at ensuring that Wednesday’s violence that included burning of places of worship in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State does not spread to the northern part of the country.

Borno State Governor and Chairman of the Northern States Governors’ Forum, Kashim Shettima spoke on behalf of other governors of the region in statement issued by his spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau on Thursday in Maiduguri.

According to him, the governors, particularly those of major cities were in touch with another yesterday and had taken some firm measures to avert any spill-over.

Shettima said the Governors took the measures, following media reports claiming that worship places were burnt during the Wednesday violence in Onitsha.

The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had denied setting any worship centre ablaze blaming the action of “agents of the federal government”.
