The Engr. Chidi-Ibeh led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has called for the disbandment of Ebubeagu Security Network in Imo State following the massacre of seven wedding guests from Otulu community in Orlu East of Imo state, allegedly by Ebubeagu operatives.
The Igbo group accused the governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma of attempting to cover up the killings using security reports.
Ohanaeze, in a release issued Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital, stated that attempts by some to cover up their misdeeds without decent investigation over the killings will never escape the laws of natural justice and God’s retribution.
The group stated its inquisitiveness in unraveling the circumstances and mystery surrounding the unfortunate killing of seven wedding guests as confirmed by the Otulu Community President General.
It noted, that those killed have been identified by the community leader, Nnamdi Agbor, adding that if the issues were not properly handled by the Federal Government it might lead to the total breakdown of law and order in the southeast.
It stated, “the carnage should not be allowed to be swept under the carpet, as there are attempts to cover up the killings with the aid of security reports to confuse Nigerians.
“Ndigbo is calling for a forensic investigation( led by the Federal Government) into the killings of the Otulu wedding guests from Oru East of Imo State and President Buhari’s intervention is expected to help in assuaging the bitterness of Ndigbo over the tragic incident.
“Ohanaeze calls for the disbandment of Ebubeagu Security outfit Imo state chapter, as they have turned into a killer squad that had outlived its usefulness, instead of serving the purpose of which they were established as an intelligence gathering organization for the society, they have become a pro bandit and state-sponsored terror groups”.
“Ndigbo have handed over the tragic incident and the Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state to Almighty God and Igbo deities, for prosecution and actions. We are committed to any lasting measures that the security agencies will employ to curb the insecurity challenges in the southeast, but it’s a sacrilege for anyone to use security reports to exonerate those responsible for the gruesome murdering of Otulu community’s wedding guests, whose identities are known. A time of reckoning is imminent, we call for calm in Oru East and West LGAs of Imo State and President Buhari’s intervention is what Ndigbo is looking forward to beholding”, Ohaneze stated.
