Iwuanyanwu laments killing of security agents

The President-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has lamented the killing of security agents at Ehime, Mbano, Imo state, as well as the reprisal attack by security operatives that led to the destruction of property, houses and people’s livelihood.

Iwuanyanwu in a statement, on Friday, condemned the senseless killing of the security men and equally condemned the ugly reprisal attack that led to displacement of people from their home.

He pleaded with the federal government to take proactive measure to ensure that such dastard occurrence does not take place again.

“My heart bleeds at the sad events in Igbo land where Igbos are for the first time, killing fellow Igbos.

“I am equally very distressed by the rate at which the Nigerian security operatives are killed not only in Igboland but all over the country.

“Worse still is the suspected reprisal attack where innocent Igbo sons and daughters from Mbano in Imo State have found their lives and means of livelihood completely destroyed.

“This situation is completely unacceptable to me. It is unacceptable to Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and indeed unacceptable to all honest, right thinking and patriotic Nigerians.

“I condemn it in strong terms. I am sending a team immediately under the Chairmanship of Barrister CJ Ihemedu the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Imo State Chapter to give me a comprehensive report on the matter.

“I call on the federal government to fish out the perpetrators of this heinous crime and make sure they face the law. I also urge the Federal Government to put in place necessary security measures to forestall the reoccurrence of this sad event,” the statement read in part
