The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo youths worldwide on Wednesday condemned in totality the invasion of Nigeria Defense Academy, NDA, by bandits and killings of an Igbo army officer.
The National Youth Leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo Engr. Damian Okafor made the condemnation while briefing journalists in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
He said, “Igbo Youths condemns in its totality the invasion of Nigeria Defense Academy Afaka Kaduna where two Army Officers were shot dead and another abducted whose body was allegedly found.
Ohanaeze, however, tasks the federal government led by President Muhammadu to carry out an unbiased investigation that will lead to the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators.
“Igbo Youths under the umbrella of Ohaneze Youth Wing worldwide calls on the Federal Government to commence an immediate investigation with a view to exposing the perpetrators and sponsors of these heinous crimes against the Nigerian Army and be made to face the wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent to others criminal elements.
“It is worrisome that the unchecked roaming of bandits and armed herders precipitated by open grazing has challenged the security architecture of the country adversely; hence, the call for proper investigation into the recent attack on NDA” he noted.
The group also called on the President Buhari led administration to tackle the increasing insecurity in the country “Nobody is free in this country again. And any country that is at war with her citizens is on a high way to destruction” he added.
