The immediate past Secretary to the Government of Imo State (SGI), Sir Jude Ejiogu, has said that until people from other tribes begin to know what it means to tolerate one another like the Igbos, the unity of the country would continue to be threatened.
Sir Ejiogu who was speaking on the killing of indigenes of Enugu State by alleged Fulani herdsmen, condemned it in its totality, describing it as wicked, callous and immoral while calling on relevant authorities to nip the ugly trend in the bud.
The former SGI who spoke on a telephone conversation with newsmen from Houston Texas, United States of America stated that even though the Igbos are accommodating, friendly and peace loving people, it should not be the reason why aliens would launch attack on them.
He condoled with the families of victims of the massacre and appealed to members of the public to be vigilant.
Sir Ejiogu called on security agents to bring perpetrators of the heinous act to book and advised leaders of Hausa and Fulani communities resident in various Igbo speaking states to call their people to order.
Meanwhile, Hon. Sunday Iwumune, a human rights activist and a social crusader has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to take action immediately to stop the carnage.
Iwumune who is also the President General of Ekwedim Autonomous Community in Isiala Mbano Council Area of Imo State described Nigeria as a failed state hence the alleged kid’s glove with which the nation is treating the inimical activities of the herdsmen.
Iwumune further said that he was shocked at Ondo State when he saw Hausa/Fulani cattle rearers carrying AK 47 rifles.
According to him “It is frustrating that nobody is asking question how these teenagers get these sophisticated weapons, who is their financiers and yet we have security operatives” he lamented.
The social activist also insisted that the President is a top business man in cattle business considering the number of cattle he said he owns and enjoined him to make a condemning statement against the herdsmen activities in all the geo-political zones.
He advised the Igbos to be mindful of their environment and always be vigilant.
