Ohanaeze In South Africa sends powerful message to Nigerian Military in South-East


Ohanaeze In South Africa sends powerful message to Nigerian Military in South-East
Igbo socio-cultural organisation - Ohaneze ndigbo, South Africa chapter, on Tuesday urged the Nigerian military to exercise restraint in their operations in the South-East states.

Ohanaeze was reacting following the military invasion of the home of the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Sunday which led to shooting of two IPOB members, while several others sustained serious injuries.

In a statement, Chief Jonas Udeji, founder of South African chapter of Ohanaeze told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that the group was worried about reported clashes and loss of lives between soldiers and youths in Umuahia.

According to him, the group did not want the situation to degenerate into bloodshed or destruction.

Udeji also cautioned the youth to be peaceful and exercise their rights, using the non-violent means.

“We expect that they should continue with the same approach. The youth have not been known to use arms or violence while fighting for their rights.

“ In this regard, we appeal to the Federal Government to caution the military not to attack unarmed youths. We do not want our youths to be hurt,” Udeji said.
