The Igbo National Council Worldwide has called on the Federal Government and Imo State Governments to call off the military campaign going on in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State before it degenerates to a dangerous magnitude.
Mr. Chilos Godsent, the President of the INCW, made the call in a statement on Thursday.
He noted that the ongoing campaign against Biafra agitators may not be in the best interest of the people of Imo State and the FG. According to him, the conflict if not quickly resolved may escalate to other communities.
“We have keenly observed the tempo of the joint military campaign going on in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State which have lasted over four days and have claimed many lives.
“The military is said to be on a revenge mission to avenge their dead of their comrades who were alleged to have been killed by members of the Eastern Security Network set-up by the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu led Indigenous People of Biafra.
“In view of the above, we call on the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma to quickly intervene on the ongoing violent conflict between the Nigerian Military and the Eastern Security Network so as to halt the wanton destruction of lives and properties of the people of the area,” the statement partly read.
