The World Igbo Congress (WIC) has warned that governors who have invited the military should withdraw them from Igbo Land as it called on President Muhammadu Buhari to rescind on the shoot-on-sight order in the South East by the Federal Government.

In an open letter to South East governors, made available to The Guardian yesterday, the body said, “Any governor, who has invited the military to Igbo land, should request that they be withdrawn.” The Congress noted that the President’s description of the Igboland as a mere “dot in a circle” with nowhere to go was part of the scheme to annihilate the Igbo race, starting with the shoot-on-sight order.

It added: “We have continued to witness, with dismay, the carefully planned ethnic cleansing taking place in the southeastern states of Nigeria. First, it was the AK47-totting Fulani herdsmen who made life unbearable for people in the south-eastern

states, like in some other places. The security apparatus of Nigeria looked the other way, as these murderers unleashed mayhem on us by maiming, raping and killing our people while destroying our crops and occupying our farms.”
