Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the attack at the Imo State residence of the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor at the weekend.

Atiku, in a press release by his media office in Abuja on Monday, said that the attack “was daring and obnoxious.”

According to the former Vice President, “this attack further reinforces the need to firm up security across the country as a situation where elder statesmen become targets of incendiary attacks is inexcusable.”

The statement expresses sympathy with the President-General of the pan-Igbo socio-cultural group, Obiozor and his family and calls on relevant law enforcement operatives to step up investigations in order to apprehend the assailants and bring them to justice.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
