Former Enugu Governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has condemned attacks and killings in the State that have claimed some politicians.

The Enugu East Senator, in a statement in Abuja, urged the security operatives not to leave any stone unturned to bring the perpetrators to justice.

He said the perpetrators of the heinous crimes are enemies of the people that must be fished out forthwith.

He insisted that anything to the contrary would be a disservice to God and humanity.

According to him, the series of attacks on various political parties campaign convoy; first on the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) bus at Topland, the second on All Progressives Congress (APC) at Agbani and that of Labour Party (LP) at Ekeotu (yesterday) was allegedly planned and executed by unknown gunmen who came to enforce the no election agenda.

He condemned the attacks in no unmistakable terms and urged governments and the citizens to rise up against the perpetrators who are planning to disrupt the elections in the South East region.

According to the statement,”Nnamani has been in the forefront and indeed the first notable political leader from the South East Zone to openly condemn the activities of unknown gunmen and the sit-at-home order by the proscribed indigenous peoples of Biafra (IPOB) bedeviling the region.

“In September 20, 2021, Senator Nnamani in a statement warned that the sit-at-home order was against the collective interest of the Igbo because it has brought the economy and social life in the region to its knees.

“The former Governor had also condemned the attacks on citizens and their businesses by the perpetrators on account of the sit-at-home order.”

According to him, “the trinity of Igbo character is defined by igba mbo (hustle), akonuche (cot of wisdom) and njepu (sojourn). The sit-at-home is antithetical to the innate Igbo tripartite traits and a betrayal of Igbo interest.”

He had warned that “most of our people live on daily income. Think of the market women who depend on daily earnings to feed their families.

“Think of students writing external examinations being denied access to the venues . This must not be allowed to continue.

“How does enslaving our people, denial of means of livelihood add value to our quest for equity and Justice?

“In our struggle for equity and Justice in the Nigerian federation, we cannot inadvertently be inflicting more injuries on ourselves by this sit-at-home order. Let wise counsel prevail.”
