Imo has come under heavy attacks from unknown gunmen who target government establishments and politicians.
John Nwodo has called on Igbos to move on from the Nigerian Civil War bitterness affecting their political relationships with other regions.
In 2019, the police declared Mr Ejiofor wanted for the murder of two police officers in his hometown in Anambra state.
“When we hear a gunshot, we will run and abandon the money we amassed.”
“He was the mastermind and coordinator of the attack on the Imo police headquarters and several other attacks on security and military personnel and facilities.”
Weeks of separatist violence compel the governor to duplicate a federal proscription that has been in force since 2017.
The violence came days after the police warned against October 1 protests by residents, especially members of the separatist Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
