Igbo Leaders of Thought have asked the Imo State Police Command to immediately parade the six arrested bombers who tried to bomb churches in the state on Sunday.
The Igbo leaders frowned at police shielding the suspects of such heinous crime that would have caused massive death in the south east, warning that the police should not complicate itself in the matter that is now new in the zone.
Deputy Secretary General of the Igbo Leaders of Thought, Elliot Uko, who disclosed this yesterday, said the group is annoyed that it was easier for the police to parade nude the Biafra zionists that were not on any murder mission, than to parade people that wanted to commit mass murder.
It, therefore, condemned the refusal of Imo Commissioner of Police to parade the suspected Boko Haram fighters who attempted to bomb a Living Faith Church (aka Winners Chapel) along Port Harcourt road, in Owerri.
Uko said: “The six fighters, said to be northerners by eye witnesses who confessed they had a mandate to bomb five churches in Owerri, are being shielded, a sharp contrast to the humiliation the police gave pro-Biafra activists in Enugu penultimate week by parading them naked to complete their humiliation. “Ndigbo are keenly watching development as they unfold,” he warned.
Uko also said that the ongoing blame game and buck-passing engaged in by Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership, to wit, that the south east governors are to blame for the lackluster performance by Igbo delegates at the ongoing confab is both unintelligent and unhelpful to the urgent issue at hand.
He noted that what Igbo delegates need to do at this “extra time” is to build synergy amongst themselves and with other zones on how to salvage the situation. “Blaming each other will not save the situation.
The truth, regrettably, is that those who parade themselves as leaders, were actually busy lobbying these same governors in their desperation to be nominated confab delegates, that they unwittingly placed themselves in a position where they could neither advice the governors nor intelligently plan Igbo strategy at the confab.
“All their energies were blindly directed on how to advance themselves individually. There were no genuine effort to chart a sensible course of action with other zones while there was still time. “They were busy hustling to be nominated as delegates, as that was more important to them than all else. “There was obviously no zeal, no passion, no genuine, commitment to the battle ahead.
