Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has charged the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase to fish out the perpetrators of the alleged attack on the Deputy Senate President, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu.
The group in a press statement issued by the President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, raised an alarm that “the highest Igbo political office holder is being hunted for elimination”.
In the statement co-signed by the OYC Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike, the council challenged the Inspector General of Police to conduct a thorough investigation to unearth those behind the evil plot to kill Ekweremadu.
Warning that killing of the Deputy Senate President portends danger for the country, OYC said,”should anything happen to Ekweremadu, Nigeria will not remain the same again”.
According to them, any harm on Ekweremadu amounted to a declaration of war against Ndigbo which must be resisted at all costs.
The statement said the Ohaneze Youths were prepared to provide security for the nation’s number 5 citizen to ensure his safety.
