South East Insecurity: Don’t destroy Igboland – UN Mayor Advises Youths

The peace we are known for, has become a scarce commodity. The bloodshed we have wiped off our minds has resumed flow on our soil? Why? Our aged are in panic, our children are confused and in fear. Wwhatend are we bent on destroying our land?

“However, our victory must not come in us turning against our collective future. Our victory will come through consistent and very difficult negotiations and renegotiations that must take place.The memories of forebears will not and must not be revisited through violence. With one voice, we demand our equity but be rest assured that we cannot achieve the equity we want by wielding AK 47s on our streets.
