Another powerful woman from igbo land identified as Onyeka Onwenu, a veteran Nigerian singer and a Human right activist has on Friday told president Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw troops deployed to the South East.
The popular Veteran Nigerian Singer further urged President Buhari to dialogue with secessionist agitators and youths in the region to stop killings.
Mrs. Onyeka Onwenu while speaking at a press conference organized by the Credible Igbo Woman Initiative, CIWI, in Lagos State, expresses her concerns over the worrisome killings in igboland.
She said, “Something dreadful is happening in south east right now. I happened to come from Imo state and I know what people are passing through there. Please, federal government should stop the killings
“Some people want to agitate for referendum, it is their right. Some people want to cry out that they are being marginalized, it is their right. Listen to them. You may not agree with them, but they have the right to speak.”
Onwenu appealed to the federal government to talk to aggrieved parties and youths in the South East region because it is their right to agitate, she added.
“We are begging, we are asking, please let us sit down and talk about what is going on. Let’s call our people who are agitating, who are not happy with the situation and talk to them. Nigerian government let’s talk. Pull out the troops from Igboland,” she stated.
She also appealed to the South east youths to embrace dialogue with the government.
“I also want to use this opportunity to reach out to our young people to embrace dialogue. Please, come let’s talk. We will stand for the right of Igbo people”, Onwenu pleaded
