Ohanaeze  faults federal Govt Concerted effort on Kanu and igboho,say it is search for peace without JUSTICe

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide led by Ambassador Professor George Obiozor has maintained the need for the Presidency to embrace equity, justice and fairness in public policy formulations and execution. 

Which is one of the departing admonitions of Pope John Paul II, was “if you want peace, then work for justice” It is an age old maxim founded on reason, experience and truth that the only way for peace to reign in society is for justice to be seen to be served to all.

Stating that the concerted effort in search of the Kanus and the Igbohos without addressing the basis of the agitation is an effort in futility. Otherwise other Kanus and Igbohos will sooner than later emerge

Adding that measures should rather be taken to address the causes of the agitations and only then can Nigeria have peace and sustainable economic growth 

The group in a statement  made available  to newsmen on monday by the National Publicity Secretary, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia  stated that the various forms of agitation in Nigeria is an effect and not a cause in itself. The cause of the agitations is the obvious injustice in federal public policies 

Stressing that  Nigeria security operatives have in recent time shown that they have teeth and can bite following the different  tactics  they are using to search for the two 

According  to Ohanaeze, “the question on every mouth of Nigerians is whether they can apply similar zeal in treating the Boko Haram Kingpins; Fulani Herdsmen; The North West Bandits”

Therefore, they stated that “the  concerted effort in search of the Kanus and the Igbohos without addressing the basis of the agitation is an effort in futility. Otherwise other Kanus and Igbohos will sooner than later emerge.

“We recall that Chief Sunday Igboho emerged in the scene because he could not endure the daily menace of the Fulani Herdsmen in the Yoruba localities for a very long time. The herdsmen would kill, maim and rape women at random. All entreaties to the presidency for a swift action against the AK-47 wielding herdsmen appeared to fall on deaf ears.
“Then Igboho in a patriotic heroic zeal intervened to save the rural farmers, women and children from the daily menace of the herdsmen.

“On the other hand, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho who wittingly or unwittingly are now seen as heroes by their people, are but the products of unjust society.

“There is no gainsaying the military operations against the Boko Haram in the North East of Nigeria but the rate at which the herdsmen destroy farm crops, attack villages, kill the indigenes and forcefully occupy their ancestral lands is most callous, unconscionable and condemnable. This is where the intervention of the presidency is most needed; and of course, the Igboho paradox.
