A group, Concerned Nigerians popularly known as Our Mumu Don Do Group, Thursday took a swipe at the federal government and the Nigerian Army over the invasion of the South-east geopolitical zone by soldiers through Operation Egwe Eke II.
In a statement in Abuja, signed by the Conveners of the group, Charles Oputa and Adeyanju Deji, and Adebayo Raphael, the Publicity Secretary, argued that the deployment of soldiers in the region and siege on leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) was completely of constitutional requirements expected in a democracy.
They said: “Our attention has been drawn to the recent detachment of soldiers from the Nigerian Army to the Afaraukwu country home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and the invasion of Abia State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists on Aba Road, Umuahia, which led to the destruction of laptops and other valuables thereby causing unnecessary panic within the state and the entire region.
“We consider this move an aberration that must be strongly condemned in a democratic environment like ours.”
