Police shielding attempted Owerri church bombers -Igbo leaders

Igbo"The six fighters, said to be northerners by eye witnesses, who confessed they had a mandate to bomb five churches in Owerri, are being shielded, a sharp contrast to the humiliation the police gave pro-Biafra activists in Enugu penultimate week by parading them naked to complete their humiliation"- Evang. Eliot Uko

Igbo Leaders of Thought, an association of Igbo socio-political leaders, on Monday accused the police of shielding “northerners”, suspected to be Boko Haram members, who attempted to bomb a church in Owerri, Imo State, on Sunday.

About six persons were reportedly arrested after security operatives discovered bombs planted in the premises of a branch of Living Faith World Bible Church, a.k.a. Winners Chapel.

In a statement by its deputy secretary, Evang. Eliot Uko, the Igbo Leaders of Thought condemned the refusal of the police to parade the suspected bombers.

“We condemn the refusal of Imo Commissioner of Police to parade the arrested Boko Haram fighters who attempted to plant bombs in the Owerri church this weekend.

“The six fighters, said to be northerners by eye witnesses, who confessed they had a mandate to bomb five churches in Owerri, are being shielded, a sharp contrast to the humiliation the police gave pro-Biafra activists in Enugu penultimate week by parading them naked to complete their humiliation.

“Ndigbo are keenly watching development as they unfold,” the group said.
