Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Wednesday, lambasted the federal government and security agencies over the violent clash that resulted in the dead of more than 30 pro-Biafra protesters.
This was contained in a statement signed by Fayose’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
Fayose described the killings as unjustifiable and heartless, saying that evil act are perpetrated on groups that President Muhammadu Buhari hate.
He noted that the President was on a mission to eliminate the South-South and South-Eastern people.
“It appears that President Buhari has made up his mind to eliminate as many South East and South South people as possible and lovers of the corporate existence of Nigeria and its people should call the president to order.”
“I am alarmed that Nigerians who were only on peaceful protest could be shot at and killed by security agents and after the senseless killing of innocent Nigerians, security agents could demonstrate their heartlessness by coming up with justifications for the criminal act.”
“One is however not surprised because every evil perpetrated by the Buhari-led government against Nigerians, especially those the presidents appears to hate have been justified by those who perpetrated them.”
“We were in this country when over 1,000 Shiite Muslims were killed and buried overnight in Zaria, Kaduna State and the murder was justified. We were also here when over 400 Agatus were killed in Benue State and the President said nothing.”
“The Monday killing of over 30 Igbo youths is therefore condemnable. Its justification is barbaric, heartless, crude and must be condemned by all lovers of unity of Nigeria and its people.”
“I therefore wish to express my sympathy to the people of the South Eastern part of Nigeria and I urge them to remain resolute in their agitation for a Nigeria in which all Nigerians are treated equally irrespective of their tribe and religion.”
