Read Time:2 Minute, 6 Second

By Ruth Oginyi

The People’s Democratic Party(PDP), Ebonyi state chapter Tuesday accused the state government and security agencies in the state of the killing in Akaeze, Ivo local government area of the state during the.

The opposition party said the violent protest that flared in the Akaeze community on Sunday which led to the killings following the death of a suspect by the state Ebubeagu Security Network, Nnaogo Anyim that provoked the issue, would have been avoided if the state government and the police and other security agencies raised to their responsibilities individually by arresting the killers of Anyim on time.

A statement from the party chairman Mr. Tochukwu Okorie, PDP accused the state police of command of compromise and incapable of protecting the lives and property of the people of the state.

The statement reads, “The Nigerian Police in Ebonyi under Police Commissioner Aliyu Garba is compromised and is now rendered incapable of protecting lives and property of Ebonyi people. CP Garba should immediately retrace his steps and begin to act in the interest of the generality of the Ebonyi people rather than protecting the brutal and tyrannical regime of the state government.

“We call on the Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police to immediately investigate the circumstances surrounding the brutal murder of Mr. Nnaogo to bring the perpetrators to justice. A stitch in time, they say, saves nine. Ebonyi State government must stop driving the state on the edge of the precipice.

“The protest erupted as a result of a viral internet video showing the gruesome murder of an Akaeze man identified as Mr. Nnaogo Akpoke Anyim by persons identified and said to be operatives of the Ebubeagu militia also from same Akaeze. The murder of the said Mr. Nnaogo is as unconscionable as it is barbaric and is hereby condemned in the strongest terms.

“The protest might have been averted had the Ebonyi State government, the Ebonyi police command, and other security agencies lived up to their responsibilities individually and severally by acting proactively in arresting and prosecuting the killers of Mr. Nnaogo.

“The state government demonstrated gross insensitivity when it failed to condemn or act on the wicked and brutal murder of Mr. Nnaogo as seen on the viral video. The governor’s condemnation of the killing of Mr. Nnaogo only after the people had taken to the streets, which resulted in the breakdown of law and order, is insincere, an afterthought and proof that the governor cares very little about the lives of Ebonyi people”./
