South-East governors colluding with Fulani militias, bandits in killing of Ndigbo – Ohanaeze 

The youth wing of Igbo apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), has accused Southeast Governors of masterminding the killings of Ndigbo by Fulani militias and bandits disguised as Fulani herdsmen.


The youth body lamented that the leadership of OYC had, overtime, raised alarm over the unwarranted, massive influx of Fulani militias and bandits into the region, still the killings remained unabated.


In a statement signed by the National President of OYC, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, made available to newsmen, the Council alleged that Southeast Governors have turned the zone into a place of slavery and bloodbath.


The aggrieved youth body further stated that the silence of the federal government, Southeast Governors and federal lawmakers from the region, in the face of the brutal killings of people of the region, could propel the youths of Igboland to pick up AK-47 or its equivalent weapons for “unavoidable self-defense as an available self-defense.”


The statement reads in part: “We can’t keep quiet anymore as Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) under the amiable leadership of Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka has severally raised intelligent security report that Ala Igbo has been besiege by Fulani militias and bandits.


“Unfortunately, the Southeast Governors have proven themselves to be a puppet to Fulani political oligarchy who they serve as masters by sacrificing the blood of Ndigbo, seasons and out of seasons.


“It’s on record that these self-glory Governors are the real conspirators sabotaging the real steps to stop the planned ethnic cleansing of Ndigbo by the Jihadists.


“This Ugly ethnic cleansing of Ndigbo at Agu-Amede, Mgbuji and Eboh Communities in Ehu-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government of Enugu, started from 22nd to 23rd November, 2022, while attempt was made by contacting State Security Service, State Police Command and the Governor, yet up until noon day of the incident, no security operatives of Nigeria: military or police, ever challenged the massacre of our people.


“We can no longer wait for a soothsayer to let us know that both Nigeria Security agents and Governors of Igbo extraction have compromised their oath which they swore to protect the lives and property of Ndigbo.


“The Ohualu Mgbede has been sacked by Fulani militias and bandits and up until now, neither President Mohammadu Buhari nor any of the federal government representatives has visited the affected villages at Ehu-Amufu, at least, in pretence to cheer up their militias for a job well done.


“The silence of federal government of Nigeria and the state government is a silent way of telling every individual youth in Igbo land to pick up a similar AK-47 or its equivalent weapons for unavoidable self-defense as an available self-defense.


“Ndigbo must wake up from this dream that militia Fulani Jihadists operated up to 72 hours from Saturday, November 19 to Tuesday, November 22, 2022, without any confrontation whatsoever from the Nigerian security agents.


“What happened to Ehu-Amufu people of Enugu State recorded the death of over 100 people, 50 people missing with two villages sacked by these dreaded herders.


“It’s on record that the mouthed ‘Ebube Agu” of Southeast Governors was a mere joker as some Governors turned ‘Ebube Agu’ into their militia gangs against their political opponents. Imo state and Ebonyi State have recorded huge death of innocent youths by “Ebube Agu” They extort money from innocent Igbo youths and other valuable properties and tag them IPOB/ESN


“Till today, we want to bring to the general public that ‘Ebube Agu’ has not recorded any successful operation of confronting any criminal gangs, Fulani militias and bandits, but they have severally recorded hundreds of maiming of innocent Igbo youths and labeling them members of ESN or IPOB.


“The ethnic cleansing that’s going on at Ehu-Amufu, Enugu State, against Ndigbo with over 100 people killed and over 50 people missing has recorded low media projection event in Nigeria and the globally community.”


Ohanaeze stated that the Southeast Governors were only preparing to go to the Senate (Red chamber in Abuja) as their retirement benefits and carpeted them for allegedly encouraging killings in the zone without bringing killers to face the law.
