While the IPOB leader, Maxi Nnamdi Kanu was relived of another count charge and case was adjourned to 26-05-2022, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has condemned the unprofessional approach of joint Nigeria Armed Forces, DSS and the Police on Igbo women who came to show their solidarity to Mazi Nnamdi Kanul at the federal high court Abuja as reported by 9News Nigeria.
Speaking to press men in Abuja on Wednesday 18th May, 2022 comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka, the national President of Ohanaeze Youth Council(OYC) stated that Nigeria is crawling to banana republic where the dignity of human life is easily reduced to nothing while violation of human rights is the order of the day in the hands of security officers who are expected to demonstrate high level of expertise and professionalism in the discharge of their constitutional responsibility.
The Igbo women and mothers who stood about one kilometer away from the federal high court close to Blue Springs Hotel Abuja became objects of security brutality when the troops of Nigeria security agents sprayed tear gas on the aged mothers , marched the women on the ground while hitting them with guns and left them with bruises.
In the process some of the women were stripped naked by security men. This is completely unacceptable, A taboo to womanhood and a slap to the dignity of Nigerian women. This adds to the series of anti social reasons why Nigeria is counted among the unsafe places to live in the world.
The behaviour of security personnel on Igbo women is a challenge to women groups, The National Assembly and the global community.
People have a right to movement and association, the case of Nigeria is fast becoming different. NIgeria is drifting into a state of lawlessness where the fundamental human rights is serially abused especially by security agents and this truism accounts for why Nigeria is leading in abuse of human rights violation globally.
” I use this mediu to call on the International Human Rights Watch , Amnesty International ad others to focus on the ugly events in Nigeria especially the ongoing massacre in the southeast which has the highest rate of human right abuse by Nigeria security agents that has continued to target Ndigbo and maim them at every slight opportunity”Comr Igboayaka noted that intimidation, Marginalization, Injustice, human rights abuses against Ndigbo were some of issues that caused the quest for secession, yet the Nigeria government is worsening the situation, pushing the country to the edge of collapse.
Comrade Igboayaka calls on the National Human Rights Commission Headquarters Abuja to as a matter of responsibility publish human rights abuses of Ndigbo in all parts of Nigeria.
Recall that case was adjourned to may 26th 2022 for further hearing while a count charge was removed from the standing Charges against Nnamdi Kanu.
