Former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi, has decried the level of insecurity in the South East Zone of Nigeria, describing it as disheartening.
Obi said there is a need for urgent stakeholders meeting in the South-East, to discuss salient issues pertaining to the recent wave of violence in the region.
The former governor in a press release signed by his media aide, Mr Valentine Obienyem called on different political, religious, traditional leaders and other stakeholders of the South-East to come together and tackle the monster of insecurity currently contending with the peace of the region and unity of the Igbos.
Obi said: “We can no longer sit and wish away the unacceptable killings and violence raging through our region. We, Igbos, are not known for violence and disrespect for human lives and must not allow the urge for the bloodbath to creep in among us. The sit-at-home order that has persisted in the South East heavily bears down on the regional economy.
“The urgent need for stakeholders meeting is therefore inevitable. This is the time for every leader in the region to unite and, in unity, address the challenges of insecurity facing us before we are all consumed.”
He reminded South Easterners that crime-fighting takes collective efforts, urging them to remain committed to the peace and development of the region.
He encouraged them to eschew all forms of crimes and pursue productive ventures that will better their lives and bring development to society.
