Group wants economic sabotage probed

Published by The Nation on Sun, 12 Jul 2015

The Director of Publicity of the Nigerian Human Rights Community (NHRC), Dr. Duro Oluwayemi has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to probe economic sabotage in the Ileja community of Ondo State.Addressing reporters in Lagos, he said government should probe the violent killings, arms proliferation which has grounded economic activities in the oil producing community, noting that it was sponsored by traditional rulers.He said the situation has grossly affected development, stressing that people now live in fears because of the wanton destruction of property and arms proliferation.Oluwayemi added that the crisis in the Ilaje community was a fall out of the 2015 Presidential election which singled out those loyal to the Buhari led administration for persecution.He said: Oba Afolabi Odidiomo and his subjects have been singled out for persecution and maltreatment by the richer and more recalcitrant king. In the last few months, six people have been killed in clearly orchestrated cases of murder.The murder is linked to bitter tussle over lordship in the area. It took our research officers 21 days to conduct extensive investigation on the crisis, if not checked it will lead to a major armed conflict and economic paralysis.The NHRC accused the traditional rulers of arming youths who maim innocent people who go about the legitimate business.There is a surge to acquire weapons in the area due to the festering crisis. The thugs parade the town with sophisticated weapons at the prompting of the traditional ruler.What we see in Igbokoda is another disaster waiting to happen. They go about with AK 47 automatic weapons. The police must wake up to its responsibilities by not compromising. The force had turned a blind eye to cases of rights abuse, but must stop this one in order to allow the people go about the businesses unmolested.The post Group wants economic sabotage probed appeared first on The Nation.]]>
