In the recent week, gunmen have slain dozens of people in the states of Enugu, Imo, and Anambra.


The deaths, however, were condemned by the Ohanaeze Youth leader.

He pondered why the culprits would descend on helpless Nigerians going about their daily lives in Igboland, characterizing it as “an attack too many.”

“We are in excruciating anguish over the past lives that have been squandered at the hands of odd individuals acting under the pretense of unknown gunmen.

“Several people, including security officers, have paid the ultimate price in the last several weeks.
This is very inappropriate and deplorable.

“The Igbo people are regarded to be peaceful, and they are known to value the sanctity of life.
This is why we are still baffled as to the motivation and those responsible for the atrocity.

“Be that as it may, we are calling on the State Governments to rise to the occasion. It does appear that the Federal Government controlled security apparatus are sitting on the fence.


“To this end, the State Governments should step up action with both conventional and unconventional approach to tackle this menace once and for all.

“We have had enough bloodshed in Igbo States and we say that “enough is enough,” he said.

He called on aggrieved youths to come to the negotiating table as “the current approach would not yield the desired results.
