Ohanaeze condemns attack on Imo governor’s residence

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Professor George Obiozor, has condemned the attack on the residence of the Governor of IMO state, Hope Uzodinma.

It was reported that unknown hoodlums on saturday morning launched an attack and burnt down some parts of the governors resident in in Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area, Imo State.

Obiozor in a statement to made available to Journalists in Enugu on Sunday by Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze considered the attack as a sacrilege against everything moral and ethical in the character of Ndigbo.

“This is not acceptable and must be condemned by Ndigbo, anywhere, everywhere. We must as Igbos, no matter the cause, not attack our sanctuaries. This is an abomination and a new development that is totally out of character of the Igbo,” he said

The President General therefore warns the Igbo youths not to be used or make themselves available to be used by those elements within and outside Igbo land that want to turn the South East of Nigeria into a theatre of crises, conflicts and violence.

He said “We must as Ndigbo be careful with what confronts us in the form of challenges against the prospects and possibilities of achieving our objective of a president of Nigeria from the South East of Nigeria by our detractors and competitors.”

“The present attempt to turn the South East, the most peaceful zone in Nigeria in recent years, into a crises and violent region, definitely has ulterior motives which must be thoroughly investigated. And so also, the idea of targeting the leaders of the zone is equally a serious issue that must be considered by the leaders of the zone and the federal government.”

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo expresses sadness over the unfortunate incident at Omuma and grateful to God that His Excellency, Governor Hope Uzodinma and members of his immediate family were not hurt,” he said
