Ndigbo accuse FG of toying with their lives

Barely 48 hours after the nationwide anti-subsidy removal protest ended, President Goodluck Jonathan may need an urgent and concrete action to douse the tension brewing in the South East geo-political zone. The people in the area have resolved to give back fire for fire in the event of any further killing of their kinsmen in the North. Yesterday, an umbrella of the youth organizations in the zone, Alliance of Igbo Youths (AIY) rose from its general assembly in Awka with a decision to take the destinies of Ndigbo in their hands, warning that the zone would not tolerate any further killing of any Igboman or woman by the Boko Haram or any group in Nigeria.

AIY stand coincided with the stand of the International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety) which in a letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, copy of which was made available to Daily Sun yesterday, noted that 510 Igbo Christians had been killed by Boko Haram in the last 12 months, describing it as, “a systematic ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.” Briefing newsmen after their general assembly, Mr. Emeka Moneme and Johnbosco Muozoba, secretary general and president respectively of AIY, said President Jonathan’s government was toying with the lives of Ndigbo as it had shown insincerity in its dealings with the people of the South-east.
