The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA has called on Southeastern Governors to investigate the activities of the Department of State Services, DSS in the region over the alleged killing of residents.
The rights group stated this while reacting to reports making the rounds that a DSS operative was gunned down by a police officer who was confronting unknown gunmen in Imo State on Tuesday.
According to HURIWA, the reports indicated that the Nigerian secret police may be part of the unknown gunmen wreaking havoc in the region.
HURIWA which faulted the recent decision of the Southeast Governors to clamp down on any members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB who is found enforcing the sit-at-home order in the region, regretted “that Igbo political leaders are busy chasing shadows and failing to take deep measures to check the expanding frontiers of coordinated attacks against residents of South East of Nigeria”.
According to a statement issued and forwarded to DAILY POST on Tuesday by its coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA recommended that only “pragmatic measures are required to bring to an end the rising security challenges currently ravaging the entire region and other parts of the country”.
The statement reads in part, “HURIWA is once more compelled to express resounding disappointment and shock at the clear absence of any pragmatic approaches by Igbo leaders and Governors but instead most of the decisions reached on Tuesday in Enugu are cosmetic, unrealistic and utopian.
“Wishing that there should be an end to sit-at-home order which has been violently enforced in spite of the denial of responsibility for issuing the order by the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) shows that these so-called political, religious and cultural leaders are living in the World of Utopia.
“The most pragmatic approach is to negotiate an end to the tagging of IPOB as a terrorist group, instituting of constructive back-channel dialogues with the detained leader of IPOB Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his members, consider conditional release from the incarceration of all prisoners of conscience belonging to IPOB including their leader and for government to realistically investigate the possibility that Miyetti Allah may have a hand in the activities of the so-called unknown gunmen”.
