Senator Obinna Ogba, representing Ebonyi Central on Wednesday declared that no amount of instigated crises in the South East can stop Igbo’s presidency.
Ogba made the declaration while briefing journalists on a motion he sponsored on incessant killings in Ebonyi State.
He alludes to the killings in most parts of the South Eastern states as an instigation that is politically motivated to stop the southeast zone from the 2023 agitation for the presidency.
He said, “Though there were pockets of crises in some of the states before now, the rising wave of such crises resulting in wanton killings of innocent lives and destruction of property is political.
“Why is it that it is when agitation for southeast to have a taste of the Presidency in 2023 is gaining momentum that the senseless killings got intensified?”
Senator Ogba had expressed concerns on the mayhem unleashed on people in Obeagu, Egedegede and Nkalaha communities in Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State by suspected herdsmen on March 30, 2021.
He called on the Federal Government for urgent intervention and also urged the Federal Government to put appropriate measures in place to forestall further attacks just as it mandated the National Emergency Management Agency to provide enough relief to all victims of the attacks and crises.
He adopted the motion of prayers and urged the Nigeria Police Force and other relevant security agencies to carry out comprehensive investigation of the attacks and killings.
