Reflecting on the current chaos and alleged killings of members of Obigbo community by the military, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former governor of Anambra State, has said that nothing justified the military killing people at random.
He maintained that extra-judiciary killing was not the best approach to handle lawlessness of any form.
He stressed that it was wrong for anybody to have ordered the military to go to a community and begin to kill unarmed citizens.
Ezeife said on Tuesday that there should be sanctity of human lives, pointing out that wanton killing as witnessed in the country shouldn’t be seen in a sane clime.
He said that there was no amount of provocation that would call for the military to unleash havoc on a community, to the extent of killing unarmed citizens. (Independent)
