By Ngozi Ezekiel
A group known as Igbo National Council (INC) has called for the disbandment of the Ebubeagu Vigilante Security Outfit and the immediate formation of a popular indigenous security outfit.
INC disclosed this in a statement signed by its President, Comrade Chilos Godsent on Monday and availed Daily Nigerian Horn.
Godsent stated that the new indigenous South East Security outfit to be formed, will be independent from the Fulani control.
The Statement read:
“Since one month now we have witnessed the increasing rate of terrorists attacks against the Eastern Nigeria people. The rate of its spread is very alarming and suspicious.
“In a space of a month from today, the region has recorded over fifty deaths from both sides of the security agents and members of the pro-Igbo Self-determination groups, and properties worth billions of Naira were being destroyed.
“The Eastern Nigeria, in the history of Nigeria has never been characterized with act of terrorism and banditry till the rise of the Fulani”s regime since 2015 till date, which, violently attack, invasion and conquest of the Eastern Nigerian people are on increase, there has been conscious efforts to annihilate its inhabitants, take over our land and convert the weaker captives to Islam, this we must resist with the last blood in our vain.
“We are also disappointed on the show of cowardice by the Governors of the Igbo Nation States with exception of Governor Samuel Orthom of Benue State who has stood firmly on the side of the aboriginal people of Benue State.
“The Igbo National Council (INC) note with dismay the treacherous act of the Governors of the South East Zone to shamelessly sabotage the gallant and courageous activities of many community vigilantes and some pro-Igbo Self-determination groups that rose up in patriotism to defend the fatherland from the rampaging Jihadist Fulani Terrorist Militias. Part of this sabotage was the cowardly formation of the “Ebubeagu Vigilante Security Outfit which is collaborating with the pro-Fulani agenda led Federal Government of Nigeria.
“We therefore urge the Governors of the South East Zone to quickly wake up from slumber and stand on the side of the masses or be condemned by history.
“We therefore urge the Governors to be South East Zone to swallow their pride and hid to the voice of the majority of people that they took oath to project. We therefore call the disbandment of the Ebubeagu Vigilante Security Outfit and a new process to form a popular indigenous South East Security Outfit that will be independent from the Fulani control.
“The INC will not relent in its determination to continue the sensitization and Mobilization of the Igbo Race to stand firm in defense of the fatherland against the rampaging terrorist Fulani Herdsmen. We are very sure history will be on our side”.
