Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, a chieftain of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has berated brutal killings of End SARS protesters and warned President Muhammadu Buhari that the tyrannical approach against the unarmed and peaceful protesters may culminate into using guerilla warfare against the Nigerian security agents.
Igboayaka who was reacting to the alleged and gruesome killing of End SARS protesters by the Nigeria Army at the Lekki Toll gate on Tuesday, insisted that the End SARS protests was as a result of an accumulated anger and unbearable pains of over 500 cases of innocent Nigerian youths killed by SARS personnel since its establishment from September 1992 to October 2020.
He recalled that barely two months now, at Emene Enugu, Igbo youths were allegedly massacred in like manner by personnel of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) and other joint security agencies, describing President Buhari as a bloodthirsty dictator.
Igboayaka decried that the President has indirectly declared war on over 150 million Nigerian youths, and should be ready to face the unavoidable consequences of the inhumane treatment.
“Unfortunately, Buhari has ignited the revolution he was afraid of, therefore, he has taught Nigerians to apply the law of Moses against his security agents which implies an eye-for-an eye and tooth-for-tooth,’ calling for resistance of equal proportion against the security operatives.”
The Ohanaeze chieftain also noted that Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has a question to answer to Nigerians as the Chief Security Officer of the state, stressing that such degree of shootings can’t take place without his command or knowledge.
Igboayaka added that Buhari and the Lagos State Governor had fuelled anarchy in the country by this singular unguarded action, saying they should get ready to face the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague.
He, however, called on the international community and the United Nations to come in defense of the Nigerian youths.
