Chika Nwoba, the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State, on Tuesday bemoaned the insecurity occasioned by armed struggle in Nigeria’s southeast region.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Nwoba, “criminals are using the opportunity to do black business and make bad money”.
He advised state governments to deforest some parts of the region.
“Government should deforest some parts of the South East. Government should checkmate the activities of native doctors in the South East. Cannibalism is on the rise in Igboland. The armed struggle in the South East has birthed a greater danger. Criminals are using the opportunity to do black business and make bad money,” Nwoba wrote on his known Facebook page.
He added: “My brother in-law returning for my wife’s bride price completion the other day was kidnapped in Abia and held hostage for 72 hours. He was later released and his statement doesn’t give joy at all. What about the military man and wife that were killed the other day? Ezinifite in Anambra is currently a den of horror. Okija, Lilu and other places in Anambra are a hotbed of horror.”
