South-East Soldiers, Biggest Casualties Of Boko Haram War


The apex Igbo socio -cultural organisation , Ohanaeze Ndigbo , has accused President Muhammadu Buahri and his party, the All Progressives Congress, of deceiving Nigerians with phony promises they do not intend to fulfil .

The National Publicity Secretary of the group , Uche Achi - Okpaga , said this on Friday in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH .
The Ohanaeze ’ s spokesperson therefore predicted electoral defeat for Buhari in the February 16 presidential poll , saying Nigerians , especially the Igbo , had seen the deception of the ruling party .

He accused the Buhari - led administration of making attempts to decimate Igbo people in the military , saying indigenes of the South - East in the military had suffered the heaviest casualties in the war against the Boko Haram in the North -East .

He said , “ The present administration has not done well for the Igbo people . There is calamitous violence in the North and Nigerians soldiers are being killed in hundreds . We found out that south easterners in the military had continued to be killed in a large number and they are followed by those from the Middle Belt. This is a deliberate effort to decimate the number of Igbo people in the Nigerian Army . ”

Achi - Okpaga accused the government of neglecting the South -East in terms of developmental projects while staging a series of military operations there despite that the region was peaceful .

The Ohanaeze spokesman added , “ In the South - East, the government has brought Operation Python Dance ; this is the third one . Presently in Nigeria , the South -East is the most peaceful region. Armed robbery , kidnapping have been reduced to the barest minimum. There is no violence anywhere in the South- East ; still , they are sending soldiers to attack the whole place . But where there is violence in the North -East , they have no solution . ”

Achi - Okpaga also criticised the President for reportedly sidelining the Igbo people from what he called juicy appointments .
He stressed that the exclusion of the people of the South -East from the Board of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission showed Buhari’ s alleged disdain for those from the region.

The publicity secretary stated , “ In what way has he been fair to the South - East? Is it in the building of roads or what? Does it mean fairness has different meanings in the dictionary of the President ? He has not done well and you can see how they are trying to deceive Nigerians .
