Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) on Wednesday, June 2, expressed concern over President Muhmmadu Buhari’s statement against those he said wants to destroy his government.
Reacting to the statement, the Ohanaeze youths said the President had prepared the ground for another genocidal attack on Ndigbo by security forces.
The spokesman of the group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said that the President had pushed Ndigbo to the walls, while expressing concern that Buhari spoke as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Nnabuike regretted that while same the President was busy romancing with Boko Haram and other bandits in the North, he has in another stroke threatened massacre of Ndigbo simply for agitating to have their own country.
While stating that the Council will be writing to alert the international community on another planned genocidal action against Ndigbo, he added: “This is sadly coming few days after Ndigbo held a memorial in honour of over five million lives wasted, including children, during the civil war.
“We are more concerned that this is coming from the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“What Buhari did was to boastfully remind us how he participated in the 1967 genocide, with a threat to repeat the onslaught.
“We are therefore alerting the United Nations, the United States of America, the International Criminal Court (ICC), the United Kingdom, and other international organizations of this looming genocide in Igboland as Mr. President has given the security agencies license to wipe our people out as can be deduced from his recent statement.
“Already, several innocent Igbo youths have been murdered by security forces under the watch of Buhari, under the guise of hunting the Eastern Security Network (ESN), yet his Government is still looking for more blood.
“It is thus imperative that we send this SOS message to the international community as Buhari’s hatred for Ndigbo has now reached extreme level.”
The President had threatened that people with the intention of destroying his government will receive the shock of their lives saying that they will be treated in a language they will understand.
His words: “Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.”
A tweet attributed to him also read: “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
