-SAYS, ENEMIES FUELING CRISIS TO FRUSTRATE IGBOS
Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has described insecurity as a major threat to the economy of the South Easterners, appealing to masterminds to redress their steps.
Anyanwu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo state further alleged that enemies of the zone are hiding under the guise of insecurity to fuel crisis against the Igbos.
“Those hiding under the current insecurity to fuel crisis against the Igbos will not succeed. The best thing for them to do now is to withdraw their evil antics and repent, otherwise, their nefarious and illicit activities shall be exposed”
According to him, the Igbos have played a prominent role in the development of the country, maintaining that any attempt to disintegrate them through discreet plot would not only be resisted but remains effort in futility.
He called on security agents to treat individuals with respect in the discharge of their duties, adding that abuse of human rights may be part of the reasons aggrieved Nigerians are resorting to violence.
Senator Anyanwu therefore enjoined the five Governors in the South East to design programmes aimed at engaging the youths in meaningful businesses, regretting how they allowed their youths to roam around the streets without any hope of survival.
While advising parents to monitor movements of their children to avoid break down of law and order, also called on the people to guard against strange elements in their environments.
