Intersociety urges President Tinubu to sack Wike over Obigbo 2020 Army massacre
By Alphonsus Nweze, Onitsha
The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety), has called for the immediate sack the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike over the alleged massacre, torture abuse sexually, abduction and disappearance of about 1,500 Obigbo people of Rivers State between October 21 and November 10, 2020.
The rights group in a statement released in Enugu, Enugu State and made available to newsmen in Onitsha, Anambra State, also demanded that Wike and 12 other key perpetrators should be banned for life from holding public office.
The group also said they should be denied entry visa into western countries and other advanced countries of the world.
Intersociety in the release endorsed by its chairman ,Board of Trustees (BoT), Nze Emeka Umeagbalasi, asked the families of the victims to drag to court the former Rivers State Governor and 12 other key perpetrators which they said were mentioned in page 26 of their report.
They also called on the attention of International Criminal Court of Justice (ICC)) at Hague, Switzerland to act swiftly to bring the perpetrators to justice for committing heinous crime against humanity.
The group said this would serve as deterrent to other privileged Nigerian leaders who ordinarily abuse their positions by inflicting death, injury and pain on ordinary, innocent and voiceless Nigerians.
The rights body called on Ndigbo in Diaspora and their organizations to rise against those that were involved in the Obigbo Army massacre and abductions to compel them to disclose the whereabouts of 152 other abductees, yet to be seen three years after their abduction.
“The action required from the global Igbo people includes tracking down the named perpetrators in foreign lands and getting them to pay heavily through civil litigations or suits and arrested and kept behind bars in such countries especially those with international or universal criminal jurisdictions,” said Intersociety.
