Ohaneze Ndigbo youths have called on the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and security agencies to handle the unrest in Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state with caution in order not to give the peaceful #EndSARS protest an ethnic coloration and endanger the lives of innocent Igbo people.
The South South Coordinator of Ohaneze Youth Wing, Chief Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, gave the warning while speaking with newsmen in Yenagoa over the crisis in the area arising from the #EndSARS peaceful protest.
Chief Arthur-Ugwa, however condemned the alleged attack on the Igbos in the area, saying the #EndSARS protest was not a tribal affair but genuine agitation by Nigerian youths.
The Coordinator also decried the vandalization of state and privately owned properties in Rivers State, regretting that the peaceful protest was unfortunately hijacked by miscreants, which led to unlawful destructions and senseless killing of people.
He urged the security agencies to arrest and prosecute anyone found guilty of the violence, while innocent Igbo people should be allowed to go about their businesses unrestricted.
