The event had been scheduled to hold around 9am, but as at 1pm the governors were no where to be seen as the VIPs patiently waited.


At this stage, most of the dignitaries ran out of patience and the Anglican Archbishop of Enugu, Dr Emmanuel Chukwuma and announced to the audience:
“We are not here for music entertainment but for security issues. We have been here for hours waiting for these people and they are no where to be seen.

“This is how they toy with issues concerning Ndigbo. Why should they keep us waiting.?

As if that was the whistle the VIPs were waiting for, Nwodo stood up and left the venue and was followed by many of the traditional rulers

Despite pleading of the chairman of the Enugu state traditional rulers council, Igwe Lawrence Agubuzu, the VIPS ignored him and left.

The governors and the IGP later arrived about an hour later.

Just as the Inspector General was giving his address, Nnia Nwodo reappeared. And the IGP paused and acknowledged his arrival and thanked him for returning.
