The invasion and brutal killings in Ebonyi was unnecessary
I got a shocking news over the communities in Ebonyi state where it was confirmed by the Governor of Ebonyi HE Dave Umahi that Herdsmen killed 16 community persons.
Two years ago according to the governor, two herdsmen were killed in that community. Two persons behind that were apprehended and sentenced. So it is very shocking that overnight all the herdsmen in Ishielu local government vacated the community and then unleashed terror.
According to the governor, he has the identities of those behind the dastardly act and will report to higher authorities.
I frown at this, especially coming at a time when there are conscious efforts from us to ensure that Nigerians every where live in peace with one another irrespective of tribe, occupation, religion and class.
Movement Against Dissidents In Nigeria has been in the forefront of peace and peaceful coexistence of all ethnic nationalities.
We therefore condemn this irresponsible act. We call on government and security agencies to fish out and bring to book those are behind this. At the same time we call on the community residents to remain calm and law abiding while security agencies do their work.
