Biafra: Igbo In Diaspora Laud Operation Python Dance, Urge Probe Of IPOB
The Igbos Professionals in Diaspora, have hailed the Nigerian military, particularly the Nigerian Army for taking the war against kidnapping, armed banditry and political secessionist agitations to some states in the southeast.
They said the operation will restore normalcy and peace to the region in the wake of the agitations being led especially by Indigenous People of Biafra.
The group, however, advised the military, to ensure the protection of peace loving innocent civilians within the states where the operation is currently being carried out, and ensure that their rights are well protected as enshrined in the constitution.
Spokesman of the group, Fidelis Nze said they were impressed by the way troops of the Nigerian Army under the Operation Python Dance II, were recording successes against the elements, whom he said have turned the region to a theater of absurdities going by the increasing rate of criminality.
He also condemned the uncontrolled activities of the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, which he noted has continued to preach hate speeches against every other tribe in the country.
He said, “It is evidently clear that the tide has changed for the better, especially in the last few days. The Nigerian military is doing well.
“We are very convinced, that by the time this military sweep up of criminalities in our region is over, it will give psychological, moral and economical relief to the generality of our people who have lived under the fear of terror by these notorious elements.”
The group also called on Governors of the Southeast States to cooperate with the military and other security agencies towards ensuring that the peace being returned to the region is sustained.
The group also called on the security agencies especially the Nigerian Army to institute a wider probe into the activities of the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, with the recent discovery of a large consignment of ammunition by the Nigerian Custom Service at the Lagos port.
