The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), the youth wing of the South-East apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has accused the President Bola Tinubu-led administration of sponsoring terrorism against the Igbos in Nigeria. The national President of Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, made this accusation while speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.
In his statement, Igboayaka called the attention of the general public to a viral video of Niger Delta militants’ leader, Asari Dokubo, and his provocative statements against the Igbo few days after meeting with the president. According to Igboayaka, the video clip showed the notorious ex-militant threatening to kill, exterminate and murder all Igbos wherever they are found. He went on to say that it is most unfortunate that the said Asari Dokubo is yet to be apprehended and/or prosecuted by the State Security Services (DSS) despite his threats.
Igboayaka revealed that Ndigbo are quite convinced that Asari Dokubo’s visit to Aso Rock villa is an orchestrated meeting to further the ugly marginalisation of the Igbos and subsequently stamp them out of existence as well as ensuring that every “perceived political opponent” is eliminated. He called for leaders to work together to promote unity and peace, rather than division and violence.
The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has urged the government to take action against those who promote violence and division.
