Ugwuanyi’s negligence responsible for Ehu-Amufu massacre- Ohanaeze
By CHARLES ONYEKWERE
The Youth wing of the apex Igbo Socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Youth Council (OYC) has said that Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s negligence towards taking advice caused the recent Ehu-Amufu massacre in lsi-Uzo Local government Area of Enugu State.
Ohanaeze alleged that the said revelation came in the early period of March 2021 when they had a dialogue with Governor Ugwuanyi on the incessant killings of innocent Igbo sons and daughters in Enugu, but regretted that the governor never heeded their advice.
The embittered Igbo youth leader revealed that Ehu-Amufu 3rd Missionary massacre could have been averted if Ugwuanyi had listened to the council’s strategic counsel on how to save Enugu Land from the dreaded Fulani herdsmen bandits and Jihadists.
The National President of OYC, comrade Igboayaka O. lgboayaka made this revelation in a statement while reacting to the ongoing killings of Ndigbo in some parts of Enugu State.
According to him, “it’s obvious that the State as of Sunday, December 18, 2022, recorded the loss of over 100 lives in the State, consequent upon the lethal attack on the people by dreaded Fulani herdsmen, as houses were also set ablaze in the course of the attack.”
Igboayaka, who accused Ugwuanyi of being engrossed in what he termed “his selfish interest in retiring to in Senate in 2023” threatened that if no adequate proactive measures are not deployed to put a lasting end to the gruesome massacring of the people, “Igbo youths shall rise against SouthEast leaders”, he said.
He recounted that it was also the same thing Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state did when he contacted him on the killings that were going on in Ebonyi, However, all Umahi could say was, he shouldn’t worry him that he should concentrate on Imo State that he’s not from Ebonyi state.
“When I said that SouthEast Governors are conspirators in the killings of Ndigbo by Fulani herdsmen Bandits and Jihadist it’s not a mere allegation, but it’s a fact which they have demonstrated through their deliberate continuous silence.

“One of the major responsibilities of a responsible government in South-East is the protection of lives and property of Ndigbo, but if the (the Governors) cannot deny this fact that they collaborators in the maiming of Ndigbo for political gain and power, let them honourably resign and give way for those that can sign and uphold a social contract to protect Alaigbo from external invasion.
“It’s now obvious that we don’t have leaders in Southeast, none of the Southeast Governors, Senators, Federal House of Representatives members, or State House of Assembly members have made any comments or reaction on the killings of over 200 Igbos at Eha-Amufu, Enugu State.
“Our Senators and Federal Representatives in Abuja are looking for money and contracts and preparing to go back to the National assembly. There’s no gainsaying that Governors, Senators, Reps members and Ministers from Southeast extraction are Soulless human political elements that have more esteem for their political positions more than the millions of lives of Ndigbo.
“These political Characters must be taught a lesson in a hard way, or they will intensify their efforts to put the lives of Ndigbo into jeopardy. These wicked characters that attach titles of Excellency, Honorable and Distinguished are walking freely on the street, blowing sirens here and there without a tinge of feelings about the woes that have befallen on Ndigbo.
“What we have in Southeast as Governors, Senators, House of Representatives members, House of Assembly members and Ministers are bunch of political looters and leech that feed on the blood of Ndigbo.
Speaking further, he explained that “the ethnic cleansing is real in Igbo land, saying it has started from Enugu Axis, just yesterday Sunday, 18 December 2022, another massacre of Ndigbo took place at various communities in Eha-Amufu, Ebor, Umujiovu, Mgbuji, Agu-Amede, a causality that recorded the killing of over 100 people.
The inhuman operation started in the early hours of Sunday morning and lasted up until night.
He recalled that on November 22 and 23, 2022, a similar attack took place in Ebonyi State which claimed the lives of over 100 Igbos with 50 people missing, adding, he said; “and again, on December 7, 2022, the same took place with over 30 Igbos killed.
“Ndigbo must pick up arms for self-defence as we’re now living in a failed country.
