Speaking at the meeting, Governor Shettima likened the trauma being faced by Nimbo people and indeed the entire Enugu State to that of victims of Boko Haram insurgency in Borno State. He applauded the people of Enugu State for their peaceful conduct since the attack happened.
"In this kind of situation, it is easy to play to the gallery; it is easier to call for revenge, but Enugu people remained calm. We have to find these killers who should be treated as criminals; they are criminals; they need to be treated as such. The Igbos are very industrious, very accommodating, very enterprising; we must build this nation together. We must build this nation as brothers". he said
