Foundation of Movement for Good Governance (FMGG), a non governmental organisation, has spoken out against the alleged unprovoked killing of some members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by some security agents, describing it as a crime against humanity.
FMGG, in a statement signed by its Anambra State Media/ICT chairman, Comrade Uchenna Ezeadigwe, said the act should have been avoided since according to them, the “innocent and defenceless young people were not carrying arms” but were “simply having a meeting.”
“It is also a crime against humanity and those that carry out such murderous operations and dole out such orders become automatic candidates for the International Criminal Court at the Hague. It strengthens their cause, hardens their hearts, emboldens their resolve, legitimises their struggle and wins them sympathy and new friends all over the world.
“Repression fuels the struggle for liberation and freedom rather than stifle it. The more IPOB youths are killed the more their ranks will swell. We must build bridges and not burn them. We must have the courage to talk to those who we may disagree with but who genuinely feel hurt and aggrieved and bring them back to the table,” it submitted.
