Former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili has lamented over the incessant loss of lives in the South-East in recent times.
Ezekwesili, who is also a co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG initiative, expressed serious concerns over the ongoing clashes between unknown gunmen and Security agents. She disclosed via social media that ineffectual police and military formations are worsening the issue of insecurity in the region.
She tweeted; “Something is tragically wrong in the South East operations by our security establishment @HQNigerianArmy and @PoliceNG.”
“@NGRPresident must step in now and firmly take command of the operations in the South East, especially in Owerri where lives are being randomly wasted. NOW!”
“I have consistently called attention of the @NGRPresident as Commander-in-Chief of the @HQNigerianArmy and @PoliceNG and DSS to the visibly ineffectual policing and military strategy in the South East.”
“Whatever happened to the Intelligence part of law, order and security?”
“@NGRPresident , we cannot have the situation in the South East degenerate into anarchy.”
“It does not bode well for the country that a region which was peaceful until a few months ago suddenly turned chaotic because of ineffectual intelligence, policing and military operations.”
