OHANAEZE NDIGBO CONDEMNS THE KILLING OF IKONSO; LAMENTING THAT HE IS A PATRIOTIC IGBO SON AND A FREEDOM FIGHTER NOT CRIMINAL AS CLAIMED BY ANTI IGBO SECURITY AGENCIES

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has described the killing of a top commander of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, Ikonso Don as a disaster.

DAILY POST reports that this was contained in a statement by the Secretary-General of the organization, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro.

He said the killing had made Ikonso a martyr and further worsened the tensed security situation in the Southeast zone.

Isiguzoro while questioning the circumstances surrounding the killing of the IPOB member, declared that “we have taken time to study the entire situation before issuing this statement and we feel that many questions are left unanswered.

“There are strong counter claims that Ikonso was not killed during a gun duel contrary to the statement by security agencies. And our question is: why kill a man you have taken captive? Why did they not arrest and prosecute him in a court of competent jurisdiction?

“So, we are questioning the circumstances surrounding his death. Ikonso should not have been killed. His death has huge consequences because he has been made martyr, a hero, you can even see that the IPOB said they have renamed the Imo Government House after him.

“The escalation of violence we are witnessing in the Southeast now won’t be happening if they didn’t kill him. Southeast is now at the mercy of herdsmen and unknown gunmen.”

He equally berated “Abuja politicians” from the zone, accusing them of keeping silent while the people were being slaughtered.

“All of them have failed Ndigbo, they have not just refused to join in search for solution but are keeping grave silence. Even those of them close to the President are not telling him the truth. They have all relaxed in Abuja while their home is burning, but they must know that if this fire is not quenched, nobody will escape,” he cautioned.

  1. Appreciating the persistence you put into your site and detailed information you offer.

    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same outdated rehashed material. Fantastic read!
    I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good oldroom mate! He always kept chatting about this.I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain hewill have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
