President Muhammadu Buhari has described as “deeply distressing” the destruction by suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in Imo State.
Recall that on Saturday some gunmen had razed the country home of the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor, at Awo-Omanma in the Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.
Reacting through a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, on Sunday in Abuja, the president, who condemned the violence in the sub-region, urged everyone to maintain peace.
According to him, the law and order situation in the entire South-east is being reviewed.
The president, therefore, called on the people of Imo in particular and the sub-region in general, to maintain peace as the police and other agencies are working to ensure that normalcy is restored soon.”
He extended sympathies to the police authorities over the losses of men and materials, and to Obiozor whom he urged to maintain his commitment to the ”peace and oneness of the federation against these senseless terrorists.”
