An Igbo group, Voice From The East (VEAST), demonstrated on the streets, roads and avenues of Enugu City over what it called charade by a sinking ship.
The Convener of VEAST, Comrade Kindness Jonah , who addressed newsmen in Enugu on the reason for the demonstration , said members took to the streets of Enugu to protest against what they identified as “crass negligence of the rules of engagement in undertaking such a venture”, and queried how eight members out of 30 could plot to impeach a sitting Governor.
Some of the placards the demonstrators carried read: ‘ Enough of this brigandage in this regime’ ; enough of bloodshed in this regime ‘ ; enough of security forces aiding and abetting the killing of Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen as they refuse to disarm them , but go about disarming local vigilantes, preparatory for full tactical islamization of Nigeria.’
According to VEAST, very soon , this government cannot contain the upsurge of violence that would envelope Nigeria if it keeps on this way, while querying why police men should refuse 22 PDP Assembly people entering into the House ,while at the same time protecting the dissident eight members from APC .
VEAST warned it would make sure Nigeria ceases to be peaceful ad infinitum, if Nigerian security forces under its Commander-in- Chief, act funny on Orthom by removing him by state of emergency or by the ruse called impeachment.
