A well known Nigerian politician, Joe Igbokwe who was the spokesperson of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, Lagos State chapter has taken to his official Facebook page to lament regarding the assassination of Mr Okechukwu Okoye who was the House of Assembly member representing Aguata in the Anambra State House of Assembly.
While sharing on his official Facebook page, the exceptionally boisterous APC supporter, and special adviser to the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on drainage and water resources, Joe Igbokwe made it known that when you think you have seen enough or heard enough in Igbo land, another despicable horror will hit you like a bomb on the face.
While lamenting, Joe Igbokwe claimed that late Hon Okechukeu Okoye a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly was allegedly beheaded by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, adding that he have spoken enough on the tragic situation that has gripped the Southerners on the throat, choking the region and making mockery of the concept of ‘Onye aghana nwanne ya’ attitude that the Igbos are known for.
Joe Igbokwe also made it known that the Igbos cannot be on lookers any longer, adding that what started in 2015 because President Muhammadu Buhari won the election which they were expecting their own PDP to win has initiated the rise of ethnic bigots, bandits, deadly gunmen, secessionists, arsonists, separatists, serial killers, murderers, and other things.
Joe Igbokwe, however, call on all the Igbo youths to come out and defend their father’s land, adding that not all Southerners are cowards.
This is sad and unfortunate, and I would like to use this opportunity to call on the Southerners, including the Igbo leaders, to come together as one body and stand against those trying to destroy the region.
