Summon meetings over IPOB, Ohaneze tells S’East govs

A chieftain of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, has requested that governors of the South-East convene an emergency security meeting to address the threat posed by unknown gunmen and members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Obizoba, the Director-General, Strategic Planning and Implementations, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, stated that it is about time community policing method is used to combat insecurity in the region.

He stated that, contrary to the Northern Elders Forum’s (NEF) recent statement that the South East leaders were mute about the threat posed by IPOB and mystery gunmen terrorizing the people, Ohaeneze has remained a vociferous group seeking a stop to the killings in Igbo land.

He described IPOB and unknown gunmen’s actions “evil,” and stated those terrorizing the region were well within the community.

The Igbo leader charged the governors to hand over the responsibility of securing Igbo communities to traditional rulers, the youths and women leaders.

He also urged governors to convene security meetings as soon as possible, including community leaders, traditional leaders, youth leaders, and women leaders to restore peace in Igbo land.
