|5,000 Igbo Youths Killed, 10,000 Detained —igbo Elders Council by Antoeni(m): 1:40pm On Jun 11|
Friday Olokor, Abuja
The Igbo Elders Council has added a new twist to the insecurity in the South East, with an allegation that more than 5000 Igbo youths have been killed and over 10,000 others, thrown into detention camps in the ongoing special security operation in the region
The IEC which comprised eminent leaders from the South East region, raised the alarm in a communique issued after their marathon meeting in Abuja sent to The PUNCH on Thursday evening.
Among those at the meeting who signed the communique were a former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife; former Minister of Education, Prof. Ihechukwu Madubuike; Prof. C.E. Nwekeaku; Onwu Arua Onwu and HRM, Eze Ibe Nwosu.
The controversial security operation which involves troops of the Nigeria Armed Force and the Nigeria Police Force, was launched about a fortnight ago in a bid to fish out criminal elements behind the recent spate of killing of security operatives and burning down of public infrastructure in the region.
When the operation commenced, the Inspector General of Police had accused the Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network of complicity in the serial killings and arson, an allegation the groups had since denied.
The communique reads, “The list is endless; so far, over 5000 Igbo youths have been killed in the South East, while more than 10,000 others are languishing in horrible detention camps in different parts of the country under questionable circumstances.
“Yet, none of these victims was a member of IPOB and ESN…. Both IPOB and ESN have severally distanced themselves from the current terror and tension in the South East, yet countless innocent citizens are killed in the name of fishing out presumed members of IPOB, ESN and unknown gunmen.”
The current militarization and widespread carnage in the South East, the IEC said, has precipitated unprecedented fear, tension and untold hardships on the people in the zone, thereby aggravating the security challenges in the land.
The elders lamented that in spite of the ban on roadblocks nationwide, security agencies in the South East routinely stop motorists at illegal checkpoints, search them in most dehumanizing manner under the guise of fishing out presumed members of IPOB and ESN.
Ohanaeze protests Igbo youths’ arrest, says it’s cowardice
According to them, those arrested by security operatives were mainly young males who were not charged to court to defend themselves but were marched away to unknown destinations, most of whom never return alive.
The communique read, “They arrest, maim, and, sometimes shoot innocent and hapless youths, and cart away their corpses to unknown destinations, thus denying them the opportunity of burial. The Igbo tradition values burial rites for the repose of the soul of the dead, yet our young victims of the military onslaught are denied that opportunity.
“We condemn without any reservation the destruction of public property in the South-East because it is not in our character to indulge in arson and brigandage.
“We believe, however, that it is not fair and just to use a sledge hammer to kill harmless flies as many victims of this joint security agencies onslaught are hapless and innocent Igbo youths and other citizens, who have become victims of circumstances.
“The current military onslaught against the Igbos will not bring the much-needed peace and stability in the South East in particular and Nigeria in general.
“Dialogue, consultations, conferences, respect for the rule of law and fundamental human rights, democracy, accountability, transparency and good governance, as well as immediate restructuring of the country, resource control, equity, justice and fairness in all government policies, programs, projects and appointments in the public service are the most feasible path to sanity, peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.
“We, therefore, call on President Muhammad Buhari, the United Nations, the European Union, African Union, ECOWAS, United States of America, United Kingdom, Russia, China and the entire international community to take urgent and necessary actions to stop the current genocide against the Igbos in the South East and parts of the South-South in the interest of peace, stability and unity of Nigeria.
“The use of force, nay, military force, has never restored peace anywhere; hence the need to explore dialogue and other effective strategies that have worked elsewhere. The Igbo Elders are available and ready to be part of this process if given the opportunity to participate. ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ is a utilitarian adage in this context and at this time.”
The group observed that the conduct of the security agencies in the South East and some parts of South-South was in contravention of any known rules of military or security engagement and therefore urged the relevant authorities to call the troops to order

The people destroying Police stations and INEC offices in the South East are not Igbos! These are hired thugs with their faces hidden who can't even speak igbo!
The governor of Imo state has openly said this and even went ahead to state that 70% of those arrested are not From the SE.. IPOB has denied being the unknown gunmen!
The vindictive Buhari/fulani administration are desperate to domestic mayhem in the South East, hoping it will provide enough excuses to not field an igbo in the ballot come 2023. These attacks are purely calculated to destabilize a very peaceful region.
Ask yourself; Why the concentration at Owerri? Why are attacks mainly in APC states? How come the military and police checkpoints disappear during attacks only to reappear after? How come two Gunmen were able to hold down some parts of Owerri for hours and the police only appeared after they left?

E don happen. Buhari and the Islamization agenda which he plans to achieve through genocidal attacks in southeast will fail.
He can go ahead and ban Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and even Tiktok, but all his atrocities will still be exposed.
The whole world is already aware and they're watching. As for those jubilating, it will get to your turn soon. Don't worry.

|Re: 5,000 Igbo Youths Killed, 10,000 Detained —igbo Elders Council by thebosstrevor1: 1:49pm On Jun 11|
5000 igbo terrorists dead and 10,000 igbo terrorists detained.
This igbo elites keep supporting their terrorists group because it will benefit them.
Can they tell these people to stop attacking police and government infrastructures.

Buhari is uniting the Igbo elites for the first time since the war ended. The meetings are just starting.
I am sure a lot are going underground at the moment. The worst thing you can do to an Igbo man is threatened his existence. A red flag has been raised in the south East.

More Mumu to go down , if they refuse to be Reasonable

if these folks are innocent igbos then the time is ripe to start the real guerilla defense movement , but if they are UGM then it is left for UGM and thier commanders to defend them selves

I have recently learned that - Even Mad people have the Particular Language that they fully Understand!
If in Doubt ask IPOB & ESN
|Re: 5,000 Igbo Youths Killed, 10,000 Detained —igbo Elders Council by gwafaeziokwu: 2:33pm On Jun 11|
About 20 mumus went down at Ibarapan few days ago and they weren't even Ipobs not to talk of UGM.
Mumus has been going down all over this shithole day on day out, either through terrorists in uniform or their undercover foot soldiers in ragtag clothes.
There are no innocent citizen in Nigeria, we are all guilty and has been condemned to death. It is like standing on a death row, once it reach your turn bye bye.
The worst mumus are those living in temporary excitement because their heads are still intact on their shoulders, even when they are on a death row. Smh

We were told UGM have reportedly killed thousands of soldiers but the government is hiding it to avoid embarrassment.
It seems the elders have lost touch with the real happenings.
|Re: 5,000 Igbo Youths Killed, 10,000 Detained —igbo Elders Council by OfoIgbo: 3:30pm On Jun 11|
That looks like a bullet hole
Biafra will obviously kill Nigeria
|Re: 5,000 Igbo Youths Killed, 10,000 Detained —igbo Elders Council by FreeIgbos: 3:38pm On Jun 11|
I really pity the idiot in aso rock. You think killing innocent people and using force will get you one Nigeria. No, on the contrary, it will harden the resolve of the people.
Buhari has unwittingly forced hitherto sleeping Igbo elite from their slumber and they have the resources and connections to ultimately put them on the spotlight.
