Sectarian impulses responsible for insecurity, massacres — IPOB lawyer

An Owerri-based legal practitioner and lead Counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Aloy Ejimakor believes  that “massacres won’t happen if there’s no premeditation, driven by sectarian impulses and lack of compatriot empathy by some security personnel when it comes to law enforcement outside their regions.”

He made this known yesterday in Owerri, while sharing his view on why serious crimes are on the increase in the South East geo-political zone.

He mentioned: “Truth be told, massacres won’t happen if there’s no premeditation, driven by sectarian impulses and lack of compatriot empathy customarily exhibited by some security personnel when it comes to law enforcement outside their regions, even when the targets of such law enforcement are unarmed and amenable to arrest.

“The inherent dangers of an imbalanced security leadership and formations is the main reason the framers of the 1999 Constitution enacted Section 217(3) of the Constitution, which roughly states that ‘the composition of the officer corps and other ranks of the Armed Forces of the Federation shall reflect the federal character of Nigeria.
