TENSION as angry Igbos threaten to SHUT DOWN Kano over killing
« on: November 08, 2016, 09:03:02 PM »


The Igbos in the south-east are seriously angry with Hausa people and they have threatened to shut down the entire Kano city following the release of the suspected killers of an Igbo woman, Mrs Bridget Aghahime.

The group accused the Kano state government of encouraging the release of the suspects.


The alleged killers of the woman

A magistrate court in Kano recently released the alleged killer of the woman. The killers had alleged that the woman committed blasphemy.

Angered by the development, the Ohanaeze Youth council worldwide, said it was ready to shut down the city of Kano has threatened to shut down the city of Kano except justice was fully done on the matter.

In a statement signed by the group’s national secretary and public relations officer, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike and Hon Obinna Adibe, the Ohanaeze insisted that a magistrate court had no jurisdiction over the matter.

Vanguard reports that the group insisted that the court does not have the power to order the release of the suspects without the support of the Kano state government.

Ohaneze described the release of the suspects as capable of encouraging hoodlums to commit more atrocities against Ndigbo living in the state.

The group asked Igbos living in Kano to come out en-mass on Friday, November 11, 2016 to protest against the judgment.

The protest is to be led by the national president of the group, Mazi Okechukwu isiguzoro as the organisation said it had resolved to employ all lawful means to ensure that the killers are brought to justice.

The group called on Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state to urge his Kano state counterpart to ensure that Agbahiwe’s killers faced justice as well as ensure the protection of lives and properties of non-indigenes living in the city.

The statement said: “We appeal to the Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to urge his Kano state counterpart, Alhaji Umar Ganduje to ensure the protection of lives and properties of Ndigbo.

“The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Lamido Sanusi and other Arewa leaders should intervene. We warn that if such thing happened again, we will hold Arewa leaders responsible.”
