IPOB must be part of the team to probe Kaduna mayhem

The Campaign for Democracy, CD, is pressing on NASS to include IPOB members as part of the panel that would probe the Southern Kaduna [neutralizations].

CD is canvassing for IPOB’s inclusion stressing that it will avoid a lopsided investigation.

The statement was issued yesterday in a press statement released by the group’s publicity secretary, In Dede Uzor A. Uzor.

Uzo said the [neutralization] of over 800 indigenes in Southern Kaduna required a thorough investigation.

He said the investigation should get to the root causes and those behind the pogrom.

He added that the vow by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to set up a high-powered investigative team is a welcome development.

CD recalled that since the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu and his comrades, that the Nigerian Army has [neutralized] over 2000 Igbo youths.

CD claimed that the pogrom in Kaduna State is a replica of what the Nigerian Army did in South-East.

CD stated that the proposed investigation would definitely unmask those behind the massacre.

The group urged NASS to ensure those behind the act should face the full wrath of the law.

“It is on record that two years of President Buhari’s leadership has witnessed the highest number of [neutralizations].

“The man has supervised the [neutralization] of innocent Nigerians.

“He alone has scored a record in this regard, even when you tally the 17 years of democracy and military administrations”.

Uzor, therefore, called on the United Nations, International Criminal Court, ICC, and world leaders to take note of such ‘man’s inhumanity to man’.

He called on the United States, in particular, to take pro-active measures to forestall future occurrences.

The National Assembly is currently on recess.
