An apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has lamented and condemned the shoot on sight order, that was given by President Muhammadu Buhari to the Nigerian Military, against Igbo youths. Ohanaeze Ndigbo made it known that such an order was a call for another serious war and tension.
The group further claimed that the alleged move would commence from Orlu, a town in Imo State, in the next few days.
Chief Ogbonnia, who is the National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, made it known that Nigerian soldiers in Igbo land recently confirmed the reports.
The Socio-cultural organization also made it known that the pattern of deployment of northern military officers to the southeast is worrisome. They made it clear that the Nigerian army has posted northern Muslims as Commander over its operations and brigades in Anambra, Abia, Imo, Akwa Ibom, Benue, Enugu, Edo, Delta, and the Rivers States.
Chief Ogbonnia added, “I don’t think that use of force will solve this present problem of Nigeria. The best thing that should be done by the president and the federal government is to look for a way to negotiate, if not, things might not end well”.
