The Association of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) has just petitioned the International Criminal Court (ICC), the United Kingdom and United States of America USA over the recent tweet made by President Buhari making reference to the civil war.
A statement released and signed by the National President of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the group alleged the President’s tweet was another subtle plan for an attack against Ndigbo.
Nnabuike accused that the President via his tweet had” prepared the ground for another attack on Ndigbo by security forces.”
And that the President had also pushed Ndigbo to the wall enough for them to react.
The petition reads “We write to alert the international community on another planned attack against Ndigbo.
This is sadly coming few days after Ndigbo held a memorial in honour of over 5 million lives wasted, including children, during the civil war,we are more concerned that this is coming from the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.It is quite sad that while the same Buhari presidency is busy romancing with Boko Haram and other bandits in the North, it has in another stroke threatened massacre of Ndigbo simply for agitating to have their own country.We are, therefore, alerting the United Nations, the United States of America, the International Criminal Court, ICC, UK, and other international organizations of this looming attack in Igboland, as Mr. President has given the security agencies license to wipe our people out as can be deduced from his recent statement.
