“We Have Extended The Olive Branch To All Genuine Agitators, And Made Extensive Calls For Those In The Bush To Come Out And Shun Crim!nality…” – C.C Soludo Reacts
08 April 2022
Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo, Executive Governor of Anambra has visited the scene of yesterday’s incident; the Aguata LGA Secretariat that was set ablaze by unknown Gunmen yesterday.
Recall, that just barely 20 days into his swearing in, two Local Governments Nnewi South Local Government and yesterday’s Aguata Local Government Area Headquarters have been set ablaze by unknown Gunmen despite peace calls by the governor.
Reacting during his visit, the Governor noted that:
We have extended the olive branch to all genuine agitators, and made extensive calls for those in the bush to come out and shun crim!nality
How do you explain to any sane mind that “responsible citizens” have elected to pursue a supposed legitimate course adopting criminal strategies of kidnapping, arson and murder? This is despicable, not permissible and against any known law of humanity.
Further speaking on the incident, he noted that:
Yesterday, security operatives smoked out some criminal camps at Ogboji and Aguluezechukwu, and the reprisal is the burning of Aguata LGA Headquarters by some of the fleeing criminals. Part of the items found in these criminal hideouts is a register of kidnap victims and the ransom paid. This is not who we are, never can we, under any guise allow criminals the latitiute to define who we are.
Ndi Anambra are irrepressible. They are out to reclaim their land. To restore peace, and set the pace for the building of a Liveable and Prosperous Homeland. I repeat, anyone in the bush with a gun is a criminal and would be fiercely resisted by the people.
