Activist Adeyanju stated that the silence of reputable people in the Southeast region over these killings gives him great worry, and he might seek legal intervention against the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, if these killings persist.
There was outrage on Monday, in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State over the alleged killing of seven youths by Ebubeagu security operative. They were said to have been killed while returning from a traditional wedding in Awomama, Oru East L.G.A., with five others still missing at the time of filing this report.
The President General of Otulu Community, in the area, Nnamdi Agbor, according to a report by Vanguard said that seven young men were shot and killed Sunday night by the Ebubeagu operatives.
His words: “Youths from our community in Otulu had Sunday accompanied one of our brothers to Awomamma for his traditional wedding rites, at the end of the event, many of the youths who came on motorcycles offered to carry their brothers and they all rode back in a convoy of motorcycles.
Reacting, Activist Deji Adeyanju condemned the killing describing the group as a “state-backed militia killing innocent people in the state”.
Speaking further during a briefing, Adeyanju recounted how the Nigerian military and Ebubeagu backed by the government of the state have been killing many many innocent people in the state in their fruitless quest to conquer ESN and IPOB members.
“It’s high time this killing spree stops. For some time now, the supreme court governor has allowed Ebubeagu and the Nigerian military to turn the state into a field of blood in their futile quest to halt the activities of ESN and IPOB in the threat”
Mr Adeyanju further called on President Buhari to caution against the excessive use of false by the Imo state governor before he plunges the state into a conflagration. He also added that the silence of reputable people in the Southeast region over these killings gives him great worry, and he might seek legal intervention against the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, if these killings persist.
