FG’s Prime Enemy of Ndigbo – Rights Group



- Advertisement -

From Alphonsus Nweze,


The Federal Government of Nigeria which has adopted nonchalant  attitudes towards holistically addressing the decades of deliberate structural and political violence,deprivation and marginalization of Igbo ethnic nationality  is the prime enemy of united, just, equitable and prosperous Nigeria.

The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) made the assertion in a statement they issued to reply the attack on Igbo race  by the Arewa  Youths, accusing the Mohammed Buhari/ Yemi Osinbajo administration of  escalating the neglect, deprivation and marginalization of Ndigbo.

In the statement signed by the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), Nze Emeka Umeagbalasi, the group said “This is to say that the present central government’s policies are utterly  distintergrative and  pose  a serious threat to the united, peaceful, healthy, prosperous  Federal Government”.

Intersociety said that the Arewa Youths’  hatred against the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and by extension Ndigbo  as well as grand and desperate plot to remove him came to fore in their letter when they accused him of visiting Nnamdi Kanu when he was in detention.

The group noted that was how the   North  intimidate and harass Igbos who occupy strategic positions  to the extent that  they hardly act in accordance with their conscience or dictates, saying  for the avoidance of nay doubt Ekweremadu has not done anything wrong by going to see Kanu where he was illegally detained  because  if a Northerner was in his position they would have even gone extra mile to see to  the welfare  their own people.

“Ekweremadu was mischievously mentioned or singled out in their letter, leaving out the likes of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose and Femi Fani-Kayode who also visited Nnamdi Kanu.’ The group said.

Intersociety reminded the Arewa youths and their sponsors that  till date Kanu and others are not criminals  or serial violators of the laws of the land like them .

“There is no traces of them taking arms against the people and government of Nigeria  within  a defined  rebellious territory  with recorded armaments  and human and material casualties on offensives, yet there are motley of recorded or documented, unspeakable state violence  against the citizens and properties of Igbo race . It must be further stated that a mere  call for constitutional change using non-violence  is never a crime in Nigeria “ the group said.
