Labour Party gubernatorial aspirant Maj Gen Lincoln Keonyemere Jack Ogunewe (Rtd) sues for peace and calm among the rising insecurity in Imo State.
I call on all Imolites & government to condemn the killings and destruction going on in the State.
He said “enough of the destruction and killings in the state. Imo belongs to all of us.”
He wondered how once a peaceful & prosperous state could be turned into a theatre of war.
He enjoined law enforcement agencies to look deep and find the root cause of the insecurity in the state with a view to reducing it to the barest minimum.
No development can thrive on the toes of insecurity. Resort to jungle justice will rather exacerbate than ameliorate the insecurity in the state.
He therefore urge all stakeholders in the fight against insecurity in the state to be professional, reduce high handedness and use of force.
He cautioned all especially the youths to remain calm & prayerful, no matter the provocation as he stated that before the law, illegality cannot be used to fight illegality.
There are legal ways and means of resolving conflicts which is the negotiating table.
We all should embrace this approach at all levels for peace to reign in Imo State.
