The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has rejected the decision taken by the South-East governors who opted for community policing in line with the security policy of the Federal Government, describing it as an act of cowardice.
Reacting to the decision by the South-East Governors’ Forum at Enugu, the National President of OYC, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka stressed that he has received a deluge of calls from Ndigbo both home and abroad, rejecting the resolution of the governors who had settled for community policing against their initial yearnings for a viable, strong and technology-driven native regional security outfit.
The Igbo youths maintained that the governors, by their actions, only speak for themselves and not for Ndigbo as our people have lost total confidence in the Nigerian security agencies, having failed to secure the region from all manner of criminals.
The youth leader hinted of the resolve and readiness of the Igbo youths to protect their people and defend their land, adding that there was no going back on the planned regional security outfit as we will not continue to entrust our lives and properties in the hands of the Nigerian security authorities.
