Insecurity In South Eastern Nigeria by VGSocial: 3:49pm On Jun 29
The rising tide of violent acts in the southeastern region of Nigeria is a growing cause of concern for the regional and Federal governments, and a threat to the general sense of safety amongst Nigerians.
The attack on the Federal High Court, Abakaliki, Ebonyi, the attack on the Fulani community in Igbariam, Anambra, the attack on the country home of the Imo State governor, the killings in Anambra, Enugu and the abduction of seven children at Enyigba, Ebonyi are a few instances of the growing state of insecurity in the south-eastern region.

Public reaction to the source of the conflict has been divided. Many consider the orchestrators of the attacks to be the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), while others believe the attacks involve “some powerful elements or groups” that could “be deliberately orchestrating violence to justify the pre-planned and pre-determined invasion of South-East”. The Federal Government has taken a no-nonsense approach towards curbing the menace. The Inspector-General of Police ordered a shoot-on-side order in the aftermath of attacks on police and other government officials in the region in late May

The directive has been criticised by various socio-political groups like Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide. It was in reaction to the IG’s directive that the Ohanaeze’s Publicity Secretary, Chief Chiedozie Ogbonnia made the above highlighted statement.
With the growing unrest, governments of the region have imposed state-wide curfews in attempts to reduce the number of casualties. Many are calling for a return to regional policing under the 1963 Constitution.
