This past weekend, Charly Boy and Deji Adeyanju led other members of the OurMumuDonDo Movement to visit the family of the 10-year-old boy allegedly killed by security operatives during the demolition of the Eke Ukwu Market in Owerri, Imo state. The boy was reportedly shot dead while the security operatives evicted traders from the market, following the orders of the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha. In a statement by the group after the visit, they condemned the killing of the boy also urged the federal Government to launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the boy’s murder.
The statement reads; “This morning, a coalition of Concerned Nigerians and Our Mumu Don Do movement visited the family of Somtochukwu Ibeanusi who was shot dead by security agents during the forceful eviction of traders from the Eke-Ukwu market and the demolition of the market on the orders of Governor Rochas Okorocha. Somtochukwu’s murder is symptomatic of the manner in which the Nigerian political elite uses the resources of the state to oppress poor Nigerians, dispossess them of their valuables and when resisted, kill them. The murder of this 10 year old child, the future and hope of his family, and indeed this nation, is unacceptable. This state of affairs where the Nigerian political elite murder Nigerians cannot be allowed to continue. The parents of Somto told us that he was their only Son. They cried & cried. Our appeal to President @MBuhari is to intervene in the matter. 4:48 PM – Sep 11, 2017 8 27 20 Adeyanju Deji @adeyanjudeji “We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his oath to secure the lives of Nigerians by ordering an investigation of the circumstances of this little child’s death. “As Commander in Chief of Armed Forces, President Buhari bears the constitutional responsibility of ensuring that the Nigerian security agencies are not used as tools of oppression against the Nigerian people. “We call on Nigerians to pray for and support the Ibeanusi family that has not only lost a child, but has also had its means of livelihood forcefully taken away.”
I could be a geek sometimes and a Social person another time, it depends on the Circumstance.
