Operation Golden Dawn: Face criminals not innocent Igbos, Ohanaeze warns army
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has called on the Nigerian Army to face criminals and not innocent Igbos in their newly launched Operation Golden Dawn in the South-East.
The Igbo group made the call in a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro on Tuesday.
According to Isiguzoro, casualties in the previous Operation Python Dance are responsible for the increased violence and insecurity in the South-East.
He said in a statement that “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, calls on Nigerian Army to guarantee that human rights violations are not part of the newly launched Operation Golden Dawn in the South-East zone.
“FG and Southeast governors should ensure that the Nigerian Army abides by the rules of engagement.
“A high level of professionalism based on military ethical standards should be allowed to drive Operation Golden Dawn, as the casualties of the previous Operation Python Dance are responsible for the increased violence and insecurity in the South-East.
“Ndigbo are foreseeing uncertainties and tension if there are hidden agendas attached to the newly formed Operation Golden Dawn. The military shouldn’t allow politicians to drag them into Anambra November 6th governorship election.
“There should not be a repeat of the ugliest experiences of the previous operation of Python Dances in the southeast characterized by intimidations, harassment of passengers and motorists, killings and dumping of corpses of suspected Biafra agitators especially IPOB members in the bushes, and unlawful incarceration of innocent people.
“We expect that there must be a human face in the operations Golden Dawn, devoid of any kind of ethnic cleansing and dishonesty.”
