Apologise to Ndigbo, South East governors, Ohanaeze youths urge IPOB
• Panic in Enugu as hoodlums attack police station
The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) Worldwide yesterday urged the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to apologise to Ndigbo and South East governors over their activities, which it said, have brought humiliation to the zone and entire country.It threatened to expose the commercial activities of IPOB, as they have done more damage to Ndigbo than they appear to salvage the situation the Igbo have found themselves since 2015.
National President of OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, also charged the South East governors to disregard the committee set up to interface between them and IPOB, nothing that there was no reason for settlement except IPOB apologises to Ndigbo and its leaders.
In a statement, he noted that IPOB started losing popularity before the 2019 elections, when it destroyed their members Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and plotted the fall of governors David Umahi of Ebonyi State, Ifyanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State in their re-election bids.
Meanwhile, fear has gripped residents of Enugu State as hoodlums attacked the Ikerike Police Station on Agbani Road carting away arms.Sources said no fewer than six police officers were injured during the attack, which took place around 2.00am yesterday by about 10 bandits.
Those injured officers were rushed to the National Orthopedic Hospital, Enugu for treatment.The Guardian learnt that the hoodlums carted away several guns, police uniforms and other items from the police station, just as they searched a post house attached to the station.
Another source, however, said the attackers removed only three guns but revealed that they wielded dangerous weapons during the invasion.A visit to the station yesterday showed that security had been beefed up around the area, while the entrance gate to the station was firmly locked and manned by some officers.The state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the report, saying although some officers were injured, they contained the attackers to the extent that no life was lost.
