Insecurity in Southeast Started From Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB Saga in 2021 – Abaribe

Speaking in Enugu, the former Senate Minority Leader, however, said the economic downturn in the Southeast cannot be linked to the saga.

 
Senator representing Abia South, Enyinnaya Abaribe has revealed how insecurity began in the Southeast.
 
According to him, the saga involving Nnamdi Kanu and his group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB started insecurity in the region.
 
Abaribe described some of the insecurity issues affecting the Southeast as contrived, which makes it seem as though security agents cannot tackle them.
 
Speaking in Enugu, the former Senate Minority Leader, however, said the economic downturn in the Southeast cannot be linked to the saga.
 
He said: “As much as we know that we cannot do anything without security, I posit that we must while dealing with insecurity (some of which are contrived) also start to discuss some other pressing issues within our polity.

“I say contrived because it is obvious that it is the general malaise in our society today that makes it seem as if insecurity cannot be tackled by our various security agencies.

“These loose associations are today, pivotal to most development strides in our communities and of course, these efforts have expanded to the areas of community security associations to complement government efforts.

“Yes, Ndigbo today have insecurity issues but it was not the case in the recent past. Today’s insecurity started from the Nnamdi Kanu/IPOB saga in 2021. Did the economic downturn in the South-East start from that date? The answer is a resounding no.”
