Nzuko Umunna joins to condemn Emene killings
The Nzuko Umunna group on Monday called for proper inspection into the killing of unarmed members of Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, by a combined team of the Nigerian security operatives in Emene, Enugu.
The incident which took place inside Emene community primary school on Sunday left about twenty members of IPOB dead, hundreds injured while 47 were arrested by the police.
Nzuko Umunna condemned the act in a statement by its Coordinator, Ngozi Odumuko titled, ‘Press Statement by Nzuko Umunna on Extrajudicial Killings at Emene, Enugu State’.
The group further said ”it noted with grave concern the constant killing of unarmed Igbo youths by security operatives. This is unacceptable and must stop.”
The group also called on Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, to set up a judicial panel of inquiry “to unravel the immediate and remote causes of these wanton killings, including the exact number of victims, with a view to bringing the perpetrators to justice.
