Igbo youths rally behind the Nimbo killings demanding that the Nigerian police apprehend those responsible within the next seven days

The death of innocent people in the Nimbo community in Enugu State’s Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area at the hands of suspected herdsmen has been condemned by the youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.

All four of these Nimbo natives—Okeh Oruki, Okeh Chukwuemeka, Julius Odiegwu, and Gabriel Ezra—were killed on Sunday morning by suspected herdsmen.

Speaking to reporters at a global press conference in Abuja on Thursday, Mazi Chukwuma Okpalaezeukwu, a national youth leader of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, expressed regret that the herdsmen and farmers who are being held in custody for suspected Fulani killings have persisted in carrying out ethnic cleansing while claiming a farmers/herders crisis as an excuse.

There have been hundreds of deaths and thousands of displaced people, yet no one has been charged, arrested, or brought to justice, according to the highest Igbo youth group.

Every level of government has ignored the problem and done nothing to help the victims; no one has taken responsibility. Quite unfair.

“Nigerian citizens must always be reminded that the tragic civil war that drained our country’s wealth was precipitated by the same callous disregard for government duty and the senseless slaughter of innocent people.”

On the other side, the youth of Ohanaeze have given the leadership of the Nigerian Police Force and sister security agencies seven days to find the criminals or face the consequences of citizens taking matters into their own hands.

“Self-defense is a fundamental human right, and we shall leave no stone unturned in ensuring we are not victimized or undermined by anybody,” the Igbo youths hypothesized.
