The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has condemned the appointment of a Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, as the acting Inspector-General of Police.
The group said the injustice of the Federal Government under the leadership of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), was responsible for the growing agitations and insecurity in the South-East.
Ohanaeze National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, stated this in an interview with newsmen on Tuesday.
Ogbonnia said, “It is unjust and unfair to sideline the South-East in the security architecture of the country. Injustice promotes insecurity; it promotes all forms of crisis and problems. With injustice, there is no peace anywhere.
“What is happening in South-East today in form of agitations is as a result of injustice. So, we the elders are put in a great dilemma because the younger generation is attacking us and we have been telling them to hold on, believing that the President would have a change of mind.
“We thought that the President would be concerned about the level of injustice, agitations and crises we have in the South-East and would try to ameliorate these things but unfortunately, he is not thinking towards that direction. It is most unfortunate and Ohanaeze will come up with a stronger statement.”
