We can no longer guarantee peace in the East – Ohanaeze

The pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation,  Ohanaeze Ndigbo,  has said that it can no longer guarantee peace in the East in the face of the  continued killing  of the Igbo in some states in the North.
The group  said that stopping its youths from carrying out reprisal  over the years, even in the face of extreme anger, had  been an onerous job.
It added that it was not sure if it would continue to restrain them from doing so, especially in the South-East.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in a statement by its Secretary General, Dr. Joe Nwaorgu,   said this on Wednesday while reacting to last Monday’s bombings in Kano State in which  many Igbo   were killed.
