He appreciated Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for creating an enabling environment for them to do their business.

“The Forum comprises a community of ethnic groups domiciled in Enugu State. We have Yorubas, Tivs, Igala, Idom, Hausa, Fulani, Urhobo, Plateau and Edo.

“Our members are very law-abiding people because anyone who lives in a place and starts growing wings has a problem.

“We have academics among us, like me, I am an engineer by training. We have a diverse group of people who make up the community, who are very reasonable.

“Anyone causing trouble in their host community doesn’t know what they’re doing in the first place.

“So we obey the law of the land, we know the culture of our host and respect it,” Omotowo added.

The ICF president described the death of the late Sarkin Hausa as a “great loss” for the group, stressing that the late Idris Ado was considered the father of the Forum.

He pointed out that in addition to being a prominent member of the group, the late Sarkin was the chairman of the northern chiefs in the south-east and south-south region.

Omotowo then urged the bereaved family to respect the legacy their late father was known for and asked God for the eternal rest of his soul. (
