The Igbo in the 19 Northern states and Abuja have reacted to the bomb explosion that occurred at the residence of the President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo in Ukehe, Enugu State on Sunday.
The Igbo under the aegis of the Igbo Delegate Assembly, IDA, has expressed shock at the incident, describing the perpetrators as enemies of Ndigbo.
The President of the group, Chief Chikezie Nwogu, said this in a statement on Monday, urging Chief John Nnia Nwodo never to submit to their harassment or be intimidated by their attack.
He said, “Those behind the act could not have been lovers of Ndi gbo, going by the fact that Chief John Nnia Nwodo has come to represent our collective efforts to speak with one voice in a highly complex Nigerian state.
“We, the Igbo people in the North, are deeply alarmed at the resort to violence by elements opposed to his narrative and deluded by the assumption that frightening incidents of this sort are vehicles to deter from his positive leadership of his people.
The statement tasked the Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Ibrahim K Idris to spare no stone in ensuring a diligent investigation on the explosion, enjoining him to take proactive measures to forestall future occurrence.
