An Onitsha-based rights group, the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, Intersociety, has described as “crocodile tears,” the mourning of Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State at the scene of violent attacks at Ishielu Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
The group equally alleged that the governor signed away the territorial security of the people of the state in exchange for his second term in office.
In a statement signed by the chairman, Board of Trustees, Emeka Umeagbalasi and other principal officers of the group, the group also alleged that the lives of the Igbos had been endangered like never before under the reign of the governor as chairman of South-East Governors Forum.
The statement also described the present crop of governors in the South-East zone as the weakest in Nigeria, adding that they had laid the foundation for the destruction and enslavement of the Igbo nation. The group equally alleged that over 700 violent herdsmen settlements abound in bushes, forests and farmlands across South-East, South-South and some parts of Middle Belt at present.
