The immediate past Secretary to the Government of Imo State (SGI), Sir Jude Ejiogu has condemned in its totality the killing of indigenes of Enugu state by alleged Fulani Helmsmen, describing it as wicked, callous and immoral while calling on relevant authorities to nip the ugly trend in the bud.
Sir Ejiogu who spoke on a telephone conversation with newsmen via 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, saying 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.
The Emeritus Secretary to the Government of Imo State therefore condoled with the families of those massacred in the unwanted killing in particular and government of Enugu State at large, while appealing to members of the public to keep vigilance on the movement of strange people to forestall further occurrence.
According to Sir Ejiogu, a onetime Chief of Staff to Imo State Government, “I have received with shock the killing of our Igbo brothers and Sisters by Fulani Helmsmen in Enugu State and its environs. This latest act should serve as a pointer and reawakened our security consciousness to monitor every strange movement, behaviours and acts capable of breaching the peace of the society, and thereafter report same to relevant authorities for prompt action.”
He therefore called on security agents to swing into action to bring perpetrators of the heinous act to book, while advising leaders of Hausa and Fulani communities resident in various Igbo speaking states to call their members to order to avoid withering down the efforts of security agents from curbing every form of social vices.
