Apex Igbo social-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has blamed the Federal Government’s inability to stem the tide of insecurity in different parts of the country for the bombing of the home of its leader, John Nwodo in Enugu yesterday.
While laying curses on the perpetrators, the group stressed that the attack on Nwodo would not deter the group from clamouring for the restructuring of the nation
Speaking through its National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Barr. Uche Achi-Okpaga, in a statement, the group described the attack as barbaric, lugubrious and irresponsible and hoped.
They said they hope ”that such deadly reprehensible perpetrators will soon be caught to face the full wrath of the law. No sinner ever goes unpunished.
“It smells to high heavens that security and freedom in Nigeria have fled to oblivion. The whole of Nigeria has become a theatre of war and terrorism.
“This brings to bare why we insist on restructuring. The Military, Police, Civil Defence and others alike are agencies of the Federal Government. So that is why we blame the federal government for the alarming insecurity all over Nigeria.”
Laying a curse on the perpetrators, the Enugu State Chairman of Ohanaeze, Dr Alex Ogbonna, during a solidarity visit to Nwodo, described “Chief Nwodo as the conscience of Igbo nation because he represents Ndigbo for truth and equity.”
He said, “Whoever is trying to repress Chief Nwodo is wasting his time because the ideological foundation of what he advocated and is fighting for is anchored on truth.
“God brought Chief Nwodo at this point in time to save Ndigbo from the quagmire they have found themselves, and anybody fighting him is fighting the whole of Ndigbo.”
