A group known as Igbo Ekunie Initiative (IEI) has questioned the silence of governors across the five South Eastern states over the onslaught by Fulani herdsmen rampaging on people’s lives and properties in the country which has affected some parts of the South East.
IEI President, Tochukwu Ezeoke, said in a statement:
“While the silence of the Buhari administration over the nefarious
antecedents of his Fulani kinsmen convinces us of his tactical approval
of their rampages, what we find criminally embarrassing is the silence
of our Igbo leaders
“Our governors: why the silence? Why are you neglecting the solemn oath you respectively took to serve your people?
“Of what use is it to Igbo people that they have leaders when the mantle of governance is crassly abdicated? The least we can do for our people is to speak up when injustice is done to them. Speak up now or forever remain silent.”
