The apex youth organization in Igboland, Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, has advised Igbo and Christian security officers in various departments in Nigeria to consistently stay on guard.
The group charged all Christian leaders, Catholics, Anglicans and Methodist Bishops, all other General Overseers of the teaming churches to awaken from their slumber, warning against envisaged, the impending assassination of more Christians in various sectors in a couple of weeks if nothing was done to avert same.
The Council gave the advice through its National President, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka in an interactive session with newsmen in Owerri on Tuesday, after an extended security meeting of the council as regards the rising security challenges in Nigeria.
Comrade Igboayaka noted that the killing of MC Okoronkwo by Bandits at Nigeria Defense Academy Kaduna was clear proof that the Igbos and Christian security officers working for the Nigerian government are targeted for extinction, annihilation, maiming and slaughtering by the organized Fulani militia otherwise known as Bandits and Boko Haram who have been terrorizing other ethnic nationalities in the country.
According to the embittered youth leader, the gruesome killing of Lt. MC Okoronkwo is launching of ethnic cleansing of Igbo and Christian in the military, Navy, Airforce, police and other security forces in Nigeria.
His words,” “The manner of killing of Lt. Chinecherem Okoronkwo and how the bandit displayed the video of his corpse is quite inciting to Ndigbo and Christian community. This manner of killing wouldn’t stop in military, Navy, Airforce police and other security departments if the Igbo and Christian security agents keep mute without any proactive measure.
“The killing of Igbo and Christian Force men in Nigeria security department will hence take different dimensions, some will look like accident, mistake, banditry, kidnapping killing and dying in disguise of fighting Boko Haram, Igboayaka revealed.”
Speaking further, he lamented thus: “It’s regrettable that over 30 million Igbo youths, Governors, Senators, Reps members, Ministers, Senior officers in Nigeria security department of Igbo extraction have not raised questions, as to investigate the circumstances leading to Lt. MC Okoronkwo’s death.
“All Christian leaders, Catholics, Anglicans and Methodist Bishops, all other General Overseers of the teaming churches must wake up now, because in subsequent weeks and months more Igbos and Christian security officers maybe assassinated.
“They are working to weaken the internal and external security of Nigeria as they have penetrated even the security intelligence. What’s going on in Nigeria is not a mere insecurity of societal crime, but there is a state calculated crime against Ndigbo and Christians at large in Nigeria.”
