www.odogwublog.com reports that over Sixty thousand (60,000) registered members of Market men and women Association of Nigeria , South-East zone led by Chief Mrs Ifeyinwa Ezenwa are in prayers for God’s intervention for the people of South-East especially its youths following the brutal and inhuman killings of 26 people in Igbo land last week.
The traders Association asked God to save Igbo people from the brutal attacks of security men who were paid with tax payers’ money, demanding that President Muhammadu Buhari should order for the immediate withdrawal of the soldiers from Abia state and other states in the East to forestall further loss of life.
The traders passed a vote of no confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari for his obvious hatred for Ndigbo that made him not to condemn the extra judicial killings and marginalization of the South-East since his administration.
The traders threatened to mobilize to vote out President Buhari if the abuse of human rights continued especially the killings adding that the operation python dance should be suspended without further delay.
The traders appealed to the National President General of Market Men and Women Association of Nigeria , Chief Mrs Felicia Sanni to join them in the appeal to President Buhari to suspend the operation python dance 11 and thanked her for facilitating some loans for them.
Rising from an emergency zonal meeting in Awka, National President of Market men and women Association of Nigeria, South East, Chief Mrs Ifeyinwa Ezenwa said the traders after watching the brutal video of the Nigerian army humiliating , terrorism, maiming and killing of unarmed youths in Abia after the invasion by the army of operation python dance 11 condemned the brutal attack and killings of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members which has been going viral over the internet.
Chief Mrs Ezenwa said the tension in Abia and Igbo land hitherto peaceful is getting too much , hence the traders petitioned the president of the European Union, EU commission, Mr Jean-Claude Junker help raise the issues concerning the IPOB’s request for a referendum among the caucus of the EU since it’s a right to raise awareness on the senseless killings to stop.
She said the military exercise Operation Python dance 11 is not safe for the traders who were doing their genuine business , adding that a round table would have resolved all the problems the Biafran agitators are demanding rather than brute force and raping of democracy principles.
She decried that people in the market are now afraid to go about their normal businesses as innocent people going to the market were shot down.
She appealed to market leaders to be watchful and ensure calm returns to the markets even as the association extends its condolences to the families who lost their beloved ones during the impasse.
