I Was Woken Up At Night By Distress Caller Who Confirmed Secret Lynching Of Igbos In Lagos Nnamdi Kanus Lawyer, Ejiofor
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the senior lawyers of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi kanu, has called on Lagos State Government and Nigerian security agencies to immediately stop the senseless profiling of Igbos in Lagos before it degenerates into something unimaginable.
Ejiofor, who made the call in statement on Tuesday, titled "attacks and killing of Igbos in Lagos State, Nigeria persists enough is enough!!!," regretted that security agencies and the government of Lagos State had been indifferent while mayhem was unleashed on Igbo residents in Lagos.
He warned that Igbo could no longer continue to remain calm on the face of the ongoing unprovoked attacks and senseless killings still going on in Lagos State.
Ejiofor stated, "I was awoken in the middle of the night by a distress call from my kinsman on the secret lynching of Igbos in the Ojo axis of Lagos state still ongoing. My kinsman, who narrowly escaped being lynched by the attackers, was gasping for breath during his distress telephone call.
"I was reasonably expected that by now, the government of Lagos state would have called these charlatan non-state actors to order. Unfortunately, it is appalling that the chief mastermind of this ethnic baiting in the person of MC Olumo, is still seen walking on the streets of Lagos state, a free person, while innocent persons are being daily paraded by the Lagos state police command.
"Bizarrely, today, all known activists and renowned human rights lawyers in Lagos state have suddenly gone mute, except for insignificant few. This is totally disappointing and sad that the lives of some group of persons no longer matter in an enforced contraption, and all government actors and agencies go about their normal businesses."
He added, "We are therefore, calling on the Lagos state governments intervention to immediately quench this fire that the non-state actors ignited before, during and after their shambolic elections, before it degenerates into a sorry state.
"We can no longer sit and watch our illustrious sons and daughters being lynched and their properties/hard labour over the years being destroyed and/or taken over by soulless criminals. Let wise counsel prevail and it must prevail now," he warned.
