The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has condemned the killing of Adamawa pregnant woman and kids in Anambra state.
In a statement signed on Wednesday by the group’s Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro made available to Journalists, Ohanaeze said “we condemned in strong terms the barbaric acts of violence and killing of the Adamawa pregnant woman and her kids, it is not in the character of Ndigbo to indulge in such desecration and sacrilege, those behind these carnages are criminals and must be made to face the consequences of their actions with stiff penalties through death”.
He said “we are shocked at how the Anambra Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo is not defending the oath of office, he took as the chief security officer of the state to protect the lives and property of citizens of Anambra State.
” If there is anybody to be blamed for the senseless killings in the state, Governor Chukwuma Soludo should be held accountable for the actions of these criminals, this is not time to shift blames because the Bucks stops at the Governor’s table, he should arrest the insecurity challenges confronting the people of Anambra state”.
“We are aware of the fact that criminal elements have hijacked the violent agitation and turned it into a killing spree”.
“North should accept our condolences, especially ACF and Arewa youths. We recommend the castration of those criminals ravaging the southeast, security is local.
“Ohanaeze is ready to partner with the Government and people of Anambra to end this madness, this is the best time for action and not to make bogus speeches and take pictures in DSS facilities”.
