Northern Elders send message to Tinubu over killing of 8 Nigerians
Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has asked presidential hopefuls to issue “emphatic condemnations” on the recent killing of eight Nigeriens by suspected separatists.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that fear among northerners living in Owerri, Imo State capital, has heightened following the killing of eight Nigeriens by suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The attack occurred on Monday when the assailants attacked a building at Orogwe, Owerri, occupied by mainly Hausa migrants from Nigeria and the Niger Republic.
Sources said the building was attacked because IPOB took all of them living in the area to be migrants from the North, unknown to them that the victims were foreigners.
“Targetting and killing of Northerners, particularly in the South East should be condemned, and must stop,” Baba-Ahmed wrote on his known Twitter handle on Friday.
“It is very dangerous because it could worsen community relations in other parts of the country.
“We need to hear clear and emphatic condemnations from those who want our votes.”
CIMMENT: No, two wrongs can’t make a right, and we condemn the killings/ murders of anyone anywhere in Nigeria, however, how many times has Baba-Ahmed and NEF, the organization he is part of condemned, STRONGLY, the killings/murders and terrorism perpetuated by his kinfolks on a daily basis across the indigenous regions of Nigeria? Him and his hypocritical group and their ilks should shut their traps and cover their faces in shame!
There is no superior race in Nigeria, definitely not the violent savages! RADARADA! (NONSENSE/RUBBISH)!
He is not president yet, they are already making lopsided demands with their entitlement mentality. A window into what awaits Tinubu, with Shettima to “put him in his place” should he become president?
