No less than eight Igbos have been killed in the northern commercial town of Kano by terrorists in the past two weeks, the leader of Igbos in the town has disclosed.

Raising an alarm over the ordeal of Ndigbo in Kano, the state chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Michael Tobias Idika, condemned the indifference of the state government, saying that Igbos have lost confidence in its ability to protect them.

“We have lost confidence in the security arrangement of Governor Muhammad Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso; and Ohanaeze in Kano demands that he should be summoned to explain why all these things are happening. Kano State Government has not deemed it fit to pay condolence to the bereaved families. Yes, we are aware that not only the Igbos have been killed, and on this note we call on the Federal Government to beef up security in the entire North and other parts
of Nigeria,” Idika told newsmen.

Castigating Igbo leaders, the Ohanaeze chief said: “We have been abandoned by our leaders, both those at the National Assembly and the governors. We are being slaughtered like chicken every day; and nobody is asking questions as to where the leaders are.”

He called on President Goodluck Jonathan to protect lives and property of Nigerians irrespective of where they live and where they come from.

News Express reports that the latest incident of the killing of Igbos in Kano happened yesterday morning when two motorcycle-riding gunmen killed a Christian couple and their child as they were about to leave their home for church.

“Two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on the car, killing the woman and her child on the spot while her husband died later in hospital,” Kano State police spokesman Magaji Majia said.

He said the couple’s other child escaped unhurt in the shooting in the Kwanar Masallachi neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city.

The police spokesman identified the woman as Evangelist Nkeiruka, a native of Imo State and of the Pentecostal Life Assembly located at Abeokuta Road but who lived at Naibawa Quarters with the family. The gunmen were said to have asked questions before they killed the family.
