  1. The people of South East should learn a lesson from the North East Region , When they Habour the criminals and belief then as their brothers and they refuses to expose them to the authority , When you see something say something is the only solution to the frequent killing

    1. Thank you Sir, but nobody is harbouring criminals. Rather, people are afraid because there is no protection of any sort, everyone is vulnerable; from the security agents themselves (military, paramilitary and police), to high level government officials (present and past). People are “dodging their head”, as we often say. People know the difference between criminals and those who genuinely agitate for justice in one area or the other, so, no one suppors the evil of continual bloodletting. Some, or, maybe, much of these killings,now, are political, because of the season. Some IPOB agitators have taken to crime which is attractive because many youths are idle and are open to temptation. security agencies are overwhelmed, and the states leaderships, not being in control of the security apparatus, because it is centrally controlled from Abuja, cannot respond beyond a certain level. It is God that will help South East now.

  2. Security of life and properties is everyone business. Ebube agwu,security outfits set up by South East governors has not been effective, look at the good work Amotekun in Southwest is doing, Southeast Governors must empower,motivate and give the necessary support to Ebube agwu to functioning very well so,they can protect people of Southeast against these blood letting elements called unknown gun men
