Ohanaeze Speaks Out About Killings in Igboland

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, has expressed concern about the region’s ongoing attacks and deaths by gunmen.

FastNews reported that the group stated that the latest killings in Enugu and Anambra State are giving them sleepless nights, adding that “enough is enough.”

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, chaired by Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, represented the group.

Tens of people have been killed by gunmen in Enugu, Imo, and Anambra states in the previous week.

The killings, according to the Ohanaeze Youth leader, were completely unacceptable.

While describing it as “an attack too many,” he questioned why the culprits would descend on helpless Nigerians going about their daily lives in Igboland.

“We are in deep pains over the previous lives wasted again in the hands of some strange persons operating under the guise of unknown gunmen.

“Within the past few weeks, several persons, including security operatives have also paid the supreme price. This is totally condemnable and unacceptable.

“Igbo people are known to be peaceful people; they are known to be respecters of the sanctity of blood. This is why we are still at a loss on the motive and those behind this carnage.

“Be that as it may, we are calling on the State Governments to rise to the occasion. It does appear that the Federal Government controlled security apparatus is sitting on the fence.

“To this end, the state governments should step up the action with both conventional and unconventional approaches to tackle this menace once and for all.

“We have had enough bloodshed in the Igbo States and we say that “enough is enough,” he said.

He called on aggrieved youths to come to the negotiating table as “the current approach would not yield the desired results.

“We are ready to midwife any negotiation that would bring about a lasting peace in Igbo land,” Okwu said.

He consoled the victims of the gunmen attack at Abia cattle market, Enugu, and the Anambra States, urging security agencies to carry out in-depth investigations before arriving at a conclusion, adding, “there must be adequate compensation for the victims.
