Rochas Okorocha Reveals Why Igbo Leaders Don’t Criticize Nnamdi Kanu And His Agenda

Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha has disclosed that the main reason Igbo leaders are not coming out to speak against Nnamdi Kanu is because they do not want to incur the wrath of their youths.

The Federal law maker who was filling questions from BBC Hausa stated that many of the South East elders are not in support of Nnamdi Kanu and his agenda, but they are only trying to be on the safe side.

According to him, the leaders are trying to avoid losing their kids if they come out to say there minds.

“A lot of people are scared, you say and tomorrow go and get your child killed.” he said.

Okorocha also blame lack of employment for being responsible for security challenges in the region.

“Most of the people who do this thing when you look at them you don’t say they have a profession, they are not considered as a threat.” said the Senator.

He explained that most of the youths who are causing the crisis are struggling with the lack of basic amenities as well.

Okorocha therefore urged the government to make use of the monarchs to address sectarian tensions in the south-eastern part of the country.

  • Where were the so call traditional leaders all these while? Must they wait for the FG to invite them before taking steps to safe there people?
    Even Mr Okorocha is coming rather a bit late

  • I agree totally to his suggestion about the monarchs. The problem is local and needs to be handle firstly as such. I dont think invading the eastern part with military presence will calm the tension. It is better handled by the local representatives of the region. So, once again I agree with Okorocha on this 100%.
