 Igbo elder, Amaechi advises IPOB, other agitators

Mbazulike Amaechi

An elder statesman, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, 92, has urged agitating Igbo youths, such as IPOB to respect his age and stop the wanton killings and destruction of property in the South East Zone.

Amaechi made the appeal on Wednesday in Abakaliki while briefing newsmen meeting with Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi in closed doors.

The elder statesman said that he was in the state to brief the governor as the Chairman of the South East Governors Forum on his efforts to stop the incessant violence in the zone especially by youths.

“I led a delegation of Igbo leaders to President Muhammadu Buhari on the growing trend of violence in the country especially in the southeast zone.

“He was happy with the visit and we are expecting positive results because peace and reconciliation cannot be achieved with violence,” he said.

The First Republic Minister regretted the reported killing of policemen and civilians in Ebonyi and other parts of the country and called for an end to such carnage.
