The Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prince Uche Achi-Ogbaga complained that Northern youths are making their way to South East territory in large numbers despite the recent interstate ban order by the government.
Prince Uche said: “They push them inside South East and want them to go and earn their living from where? So many of them will turn to criminals and herdsmen and begin to harass people”.
“They are miscreants who masquerade as herdsmen, go inside the farms and destroy the foodstuff and kill the farmers. This thing is getting out of hand. What have the southerners more especially, the South East done to the people?”
In addition to what the secretary of Ohanaeze said, the Chairman, Imo State Traditional Rulers Council, Eze Samuel Ohiri, also disclose the alarming rate of insecurity in the state. He informed that security should be beefed up at every border belonging to the South East region.
The Chairman said further that he can only love the Almajiris if only they are his neighbors.
He said: “I should ordinarily love the Almajirai if they become my neighbors, but some people were responsible for producing them. Those people who gave no education, no training, nothing to survive with to human beings who they call Almajirai should take responsibility and keep them where they grew up and pay the price for making human beings useless.”
