CLO condemns attack on Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah, seeks immediate end to senseless killings
Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO) Anambra state has condemned strongly the despicable and horrendous attack on distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Ubah representing Anambra South in the Senate and his convoy at Enugu-ukwu in Njikoka LG recently, which led to the untimely death of six persons including security personnel and civilians.
In a press statement issued to newsmen, endorsed by Comrades Vincent Ezekwueme and Chidi Mba, Chairman and Secretary respectfully with the theme “whatever that affects one directly affect all indirectly.
The attack is insensate, barbaric, inhumane, condemnable, detestable and apogee of man’s inhumanity against man.
It is very unfortunate and worrisome that at every election period in the state, there is always escalating arsons, tensions, bloodlettings, killings and destruction of private and public properties.
We wish to remind perpetrators and citizenry that the commandment of God “thou shall not kill is sacrosanct and must be respected by all mortals.
Only God gives and takes life, we must all thereby observe, protect, safeguard and respect the sanctity and sacredness of human persons, life and dignity.
We pray, identify and sympathies with Senator Ifeanyi Uba at this painful and trying period. May our God Lord forgive the shortcomings of security personnel and civilians who lost their lives during the dastardly and senseless killings.
We also pray to God to gives grace and fortitude to the bereaved to bear and endure the irreparable and irreplaceable lost.
The governor and CP should order for in-depth and discreet investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the dastardly act, those involved and to prevent future occurrences.
We appeal to CP Echeng Echeng to kindly beef up security around the candidates and political gladiators and for the stakeholders to play the game according to rules in order to douse political tensions and restore normalcy.
It is of prime importance to note that uncommon problem calls for uncommon solution, hence the inevitable need to seek God’s interventions for various problems and challenges bedeviling the state. Read more.
