The World Igbo Congress, WIC, has come out to say that Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state should stop his attacks on the Eastern Security Network, ESN.
The group recently revealed this via a statement by WIC spokesman, Hon Basil Onwukwe, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the recent military attack in Orlu Imo state that claimed the lives of innocent citizens and members of Eastern Security Network is highly commendable, and it is sad to see how Uzodinma admitted to ordering the military airstrikes on Imo youths.
The group added that the international community should do Nigeria a favor and investigate the heinous act perpetrated by the Governor of Imo state.
His words, “It’s unfortunate to watch Governor Hope Uzodinma admit ordering the military airstrikes on Imo youths who were volunteering to monitor against the killing and raping by Fulani Herdsmen.”
“The Governor of Zamfara recently visited and openly took a photo with hordes of bandits and militants in his area. The other Northern leaders have made numerous ransom payments to kidnappers, including redemption offers and conversion into the national security apparatus.”
“The federal government has been encouraging Governor Hope Uzodinma to govern by intimidation and vindictive-destructive mission against Igbo youths.”
“What exactly has the ESN done that makes them terrorists or criminals that the Nigerian military has turned Orlu into a war zone? The killing of Imo State indigenes and ESN volunteers that withstood killer herdsmen is unwarranted.”
“Word Igbo Congress is therefore calling on the international community to investigate the heinous act perpetrated by the Governor of Imo state, the rationale that brought the Governor into power from a distant fourth position, and as a matter of urgency place movement restriction on the government officials involved.”
