Igbos in all part of the country have been admonished to abstain from acts that could result in reprisal attacks following Monday’s bomb blast at a motor park in Kano in which scores of people were killed.
Chairman of Imo State chapter of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Prince Marshal Okafor Anyanwu while speaking in Owerri yesterday said that the attack was not aimed at Igbos in the state, adding that if there were reprisal attacks, the wrong people could be killed.
On calls for Igbos to return home, the APGA chieftain said the Nigerian system was not structured in same way with foreign countries where the Federal Government began to take care of their citizens after 18 years. He said the possibility of Igbos returning homes due to incessant killings in the north might not be there because a lot of people do not have anything they might fall back if they return home.
Describing the people behind the attack as barbaric and inhuman, he said the perpetrators are faceless unlike in the case of jihad war where the people are seen and could be traced to where they come from.
