The House of Representatives on Sunday called off its planned public hearing which was slated to hold in Owerri on Tuesday.
A statement signed by Hon Idris Wase, Deputy Speaker and Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional Review said the committee regretted any inconveniences which the decision to call the meeting off would cause.
“The House of Representatives Special Committee on Constitutional Review Zonal Public Hearing scheduled to take place in Owerri Centre (Imo and Abia States) on Tuesday June 1 and Wednesday June 2nd 2021 has been suspended indefinitely.”
While stating categorically what reason informed the decision, the committee only said it regretted the inconvenience it would cause.
The action might not be unconnected with the rising feeling of insecurity in the South East states.
It will be recalled that former Presidential Adviser Ahmed Gulak was gunned down in Owerri on Sunday.
