Insecurity: Withdraw Troops From Igboland, Onyeka Onwenu Tells Buhari by superstar1(m): 12:20am On Jun 11
Human right activist and former Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of the National Centre for Women Development, Onyeka Onwenu, yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the Nigerian troops deployed in south east and dialogue with secessionist agitators in the region.

The request was as a result of outcry over alleged extrajudicial killings of Igbo youths by the security operatives.

Onwenu who spoke at a press conference organized by the Credible Igbo Women Initiative, CIWI, in Lagos, expressed concerns over the wanton killings in Igboland.

She said, “We come here together with one thing in our mind: peace, love and equity. Something dreadful is happening in south east right now. I happened to come from Imo state and I know what people are passing through there. Please, federal government should stop the killings

Some people want to agitate for referendum, it is their right. Some people want to cry out that they are being marginalized, it is their right. Listen to them. You may not agree with them, but they have the right to speak. We are begging, we are asking, please let’s sit down and talk about what is going on. Let’s call our people who are agitating, who are not happy with the situation and talk to them. Nigerian government let’s talk. Pull out the troops from Igboland.

“I want to use this opportunity to reach out to our young people to embrace dialogue. Please, come let’s talk. We will stand for the right of Igbo people”, Onwenu appealed.

Meanwhile, CIWI, in a communique read by Elvira Silas, condemned the reckless spilling of innocent people by the security operatives, and militarization of Igboland and apparent threat by the federal government to use maximum force in dealing with the problem of insecurity in the south east.

The communique read in part, ” we call on the federal government to convoke a security conclave forthwith and stop the bloodletting and remove killer squad from Igboland. No more killings, no more brutality, no more harassment and intimidation of our children.

“We also call on the government to console and compensate the men and women whose children met their untimely death in the hands of the gunmen, both known and unknown.”

See these clowns. You were deaf and dumb when Unknown GunMen were running riot killing security agents and burning down Govt infrastructure. You are now lamenting when security agents are unmasking unknown Gun Men.

Madam, please respect your age! If your were quiet when your children were misbehaving and could not rein them and their instigator in, as well as their guarantor and chief Uber driver, then save us the crocodile tears!

Buhari's stupidity is jeopardizing this country and the sooner people realize this the better. And as for self-determination, Oduduwa and Biafra will still happen whether Buhari likes it or not.

Thank you Mama Onyeka Onwenu for speaking against the atrocity of Buhari regime against innocent Igbos who are now being dragged out of their homes and summarily executed under the watch of the most bigoted president ever to walk the earth.

I hope other Igbo celebrities lend their voices against the injustices against their brethren. For if you don't speak against injustice, no one will speak for you when it's you at the receiving end.

Why are Igbo leaders especially the governors not speaking out? The militaries are killing innocent able men in the religion. They should be protest against these Igbo governors and leaders, it’s obvious they are against the people in the region.

These igbo elders are not ready yet.

They keep shielding and refusing to call out ipob/esn for their murderous killing rampage, yet expect anyone to call them to the table? So the scores of officers they've killed are worthless and don't have innocent families that they've thrown into mourning? Imagine the rubbish, and to think I used to respect this woman?

As in, Buhari should succumb to the violent, murderous blackmail of Nnamdi Kanu and his horde of brainwashed zombies? Are they bloody drunk? Can you imagine these older people who should be wiser helping propagate the ipob "unknown gunmen" scam? Lol.

When they are ready we will know. Until then, but they should remember...

It's obvious that those supporting the UGM secretly with the mind that their nefarious activities will make a statement are disappointed.
They're now creeping out of their holes after they've understood that 'Khaki no be leather', Odeshi no dey work on government gun', drug intake fit give you moral but won't stop the bleeding.

Summarily, don't cut your nose to spite your face cus in the end you'll be disfigure!

The military must continue dealing with these miscreants. Nobody messes with the peace of the Nigerian state and goes scot free without consequences.
