Socio-political youth organisation in Igbo land, the Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders, has condemned the attack on the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, by suspected hoodlums.
According to the group, the attack on Senator Ubah, which took place at Enugwu Ukwu, in the Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, Sunday evening, was an affront to Igbo land, that hitherto was adjudged the most peaceful across the country.
The group stated this in a statement signed by its President-General, Chief Goodluck Ibem,The statement read, “The Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders, the apex socio-political youth group in the South-East geopolitical zone, condemns in strongest terms the wicked, barbaric, villainous and senseless attack on Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy that led to the death of his aides and security agents attached to his convoy. The attack on our great son on Igbo soil is an affront to Igbo nation.
“We are really pained and disheartened to receive this heartbreaking news of how our youths just lost their lives within a swingle of an eye in broad daylight. What a wicked world!.
It is infelicitous that such senseless killing of innocent youths who have done nothing wrong is happening in Igboland, that was before now adjudged the most peaceful in all ramifications. Something is fishy in this very attack and we demand that security agencies must unravel those hoodlums behind the assassination attempt and their sponsors and bring them to justice.
“This vicious attack and assassination of our youths is a confirmation that enemies of Ndigbo have crept into our midst and they must be found by any means and flushed out immediately.
