Stop killings, arson in South-East, group appeals

A group, Imo State Peace Movement, has condemned the spate of killings, kidnappings, burning of properties and other forms of violence in the South-East, especially in Imo, Enugu and Ebonyi states.

Speaking to journalists in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Saturday, the coordinator, Chidubem Ogbenna, specifically condemned the killing of the elder brother of Nollywood actor, Osita Iheme, and the burning of an office belonging to the Independent National Electoral Commission unidentified persons in the state on December 11.

Ogbenna said that the South-East could not promote Biafra by killing the Igbo, adding that the killings of security agents in the region reduced the level of protection by the government for residents in the region.

He said, “If we cause war by ourselves in Igbo land (but God forbid), we will only lose our people, properties, and all we represent as people but if we use peaceful dialogue, we can achieve what we want. Besides, there is no way we can have independence without a government to declare and sign.

“This is not what Mazi Nnamdi Kalu wants for his people. Kanu had earlier spoken through his lawyer to put a stop to Monday’s sit-at-home so that the masses can go about their businesses for daily bread on Monday, knowing how hard things are right now in our country because nobody can afford to see his people idle and hungry at the same time.

“And when you keep killing your people, remember that one day, the land itself will kill you or spit you out and yet that goal you are fighting for will not be achieved because even the land is crying because of innocent blood in it.”
