Igbo youths under the aegis of the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, (COSEYL), has condemned the burning down of the house of the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, professor George Obiozor at Awo-mmamma in Oru East Local Government Area by gunmen on Saturday.

In a statement by the President General of the Igbo group, Goodluck Ibem on Sunday, it described the action by the hoodlums as wicked, despicable, barbaric and senseless. “We condemn it in its entirety. These is not who we are as Ndigbo. It is not in the nature of Ndigbo to commit arson or disrespect of elders.

“Professor George Obiozor since he took over the mantle of leadership as the President General of the Apex socio-cultural group of Ndigbo, he has never been found wanting on any matter affecting Ndigbo. He has always stood in the gag to defend the course and interest of our people at all times.

“Professor Obiozor accepted the call to champion the course and aspirations of our people because of the love he has for his people. He accepted the call to serve because he wants to use his wide range of contacts and connections to advance the fortune of our people. He is a fulfilled man who achieved so much is his chosen career of endeavour. He is a man of integrity, strength of character and a man with an overflowing zeal to become a blessing to his people.

“Anyone who took part in the planning and destruction of Obiozor’s house is an enemy of Ndigbo and such person or persons will not go unpunished.

“Any tribe that disrespect their leaders should not expect to be respected by other tribes outside their region. These arsonists and their co-travellers must be arrested to account for their actions against this great leader of Ndigbo.” Ibem stated.

He therefore urged all politicians, youths and religious leaders in the south east to confront the insecurity in the zone. “Everybody should come out lets address these issues that is steering us in the face before our land becomes a deserted area. These arsonist and hoodlums who are destroying our land in whatever guise do not understand the gravity of what they are doing to Alaigbo.

“No land or tribe advances the course of their people via destruction and burning of people houses. A tribe can only advance through hard work and commitment of purpose. Whoever thinks or believes that destroying the house of our highly respected leader like Obiozor will bring any good to Igboland is definitely not thinking at all.

“We call on security agencies and the youths of Awo Mmamma to mobilize themselves immediately, move into action and ensure that those who embarked on these despicable act of shame are brought to book. Ndigbo are great people, we are not known for cowardice and pusillanimity. ” Ibem affirmed.
