The Igbo National Council (INC) has denounced the heinous murder of Christopher Ohizu, the sole administrator of Ideato North Local Government Area, by his kidnappers on Sunday.
INC President Chilos Godsent, in a statement released to newsmen in Owerri on Tuesday, denounced the incident and urged state governor Hope Uzodinma to declare a state of emergency on insecurity in the state and establish a powerful security outfit to prevent further tragedies.
“We watched with tears in our eyes the viral video of Hon Chris Ohizu, the Sole Administrator of Ideato North LGA in Imo State, being humiliated and slaughtered by gunmen threatening more lethal killings,” he stated.
“Consequent upon the above, the Igbo National Council (INC) hereby call on the Government of Imo State led by Senator Hope Uzodinma to immediately declare a State of Emergency on the rapidly growing Insecurity in the state by mandating every Autonomous Community in Imo State to set up a functional Community Vigilante Security Outfit that will be used as a mechanism for intelligence gatherings and neutralisation of planned crimes and attacks.
“We also recommend that the volunteers to the Proposed Community Vigilante Security Outfit should be well trained on Early Warning, Early Responses and combat operations,” Godsent stated.
