ABUJA – The member representing Abor Mbaise and Ngor Okpala federal constituency of Imo State, Hon. Bede Eke has raised an alarm that the security agencies are his constituents.
 
The killings, he said, came on the heels of the recent of the former presidential adviser and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Ahmed Gulak in Owerri, Imo State.
 
The lawmaker who addressed a press on in Abuja gave the names of some victims as Noel Chigbu Nzeribe, Tochi Ekwe, and many other missing kinsmen. He said that many have been driven to the bushes while others fled to where they have spent days without their families.
 
While totally condemning Gulak’s brutal murder, Eke appealed to the security agencies to exercise restraints and innocent people.
 
According to him, calls from his constituents have reached a crescendo to intervene in their current ordeal in the hands of the security operatives. 
 
Eke asked the police and the army to conduct discreet investigation, identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice rather than mass intimidation and killings of his constituents.
 
“We lost a young man. Until his death owns and operates a Shawarma shop just to make ends meet. He was shot by the army because he could not obey the rules at the checkpoint.
 
“The family has written a to the army. We as the people of Ngor Okpala/Mbaise are not happy about it and as the representative of the people, I to make it known to the world that we are waiting for the outcome of the petition.
 
“As the representative of the people, I am giving the army 14 days to respond to the of that young man who left a pregnant and his two children. One is 3 and the other is 2 years old.” (Vanguard)
