Crisis In South Eastern Nigeria
Chief Olisa Metuh has urged current southeast state governors to demand the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The Senate Minority Leader and former Abia deputy governor, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, says there are more than 30 separatist organisations in the southeast.
The acting national leader of the youth group, Jones Onwuasonya, urged IPOB to carryout the action immediately in order to forestall more attacks in southeast.
The clash which killed the young lawyer in Owerri reportedly caused chaos in the state capital while residents scampered for safety during the free-for-all.
Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has stated that the crisis in the southeast region is a result of some Igbos killing themselves in the name of agitation.
Imo state governor, Hope Uzodimma has condemned the murder of Dr. Chike Akunyili, describing the circumstances of his death as wickedness of the highest order.
