The Coalition of Youth Groups in Nigeria, superintended by Emerging Leaders Forum of Nigeria (ELFON), have called on the Nigeria Army, to sue a lawyer, Barr. E.R Okoroafor, over the allegation of secret execution of six soldiers of Igbo origins, by the Nigerian Army, at the orders of the former COAS Lt. General Burutai (RTD).
The groups made their reaction known in a Communique released to the press, and reads as follows;
A COMMUNIQUE OF THE COALITION OF YOUTH GROUPS IN NIGERIA AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE HOLDING IN ELFON SECRETARIAT, ABUJA ON TUESDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY, 2021.
The attention of the coalition of youth groups in Nigeria comprising the Youth Assembly of Nigeria (YAN), Niger Delta Youth Council, Igbozurumee Youth Council, Arewa Youth Counci, Oo’dua Youth Vanguard, Nigerian Students Parliament (NSP), and 34 other Youth Organizations too numerous to mention ably superintended by the Emerging Leaders Forum of Nigeria (ELFON) have been drawn to a basess report made by one Barr. E.R Okoroafor who claimed that Six Igbo Christian Nigerian soldiers were been secretly executed in the Nigeria capital, Abuja, after a hasty secret trial at which they were denied legal representation of their choice. Okorafor from investigation is said to be leading a coalition of acclaimed rights activists and scholars that alleged the above mention matter earlier today, Tuesday, February 2, 2021.
As Nigerian Youths, we can no longer fold our hands to see things done the wrong way. If really E.R Okoroafor is a genuine lawyer as he masquerades about in claim, he should have sort for redress the legal way instead of playing to the gallery by making clueless depositions that are capable of breaching peace in the Nation.
We actually wonder the type of mind this type of human being has. We equally wonder how he sleeps at night after telling these stupid lies just to blackmail people and please his pay masters.
We wonder what his intentions are if not to instigate tribal war or another civil. What does he want?
We hereby call on the Nigerian Army to consider a court action against E.R Okoroaforand his Co men of evil deeds.
From our independent investigation, there is no iota of truth in the nonsense he is saying. We challenge him to produce evidence as we believe the names he mentioned are fake names.
We will no longer tolerate any unpatriotic behavior borne out of mere quest of one’s search for cheap and stupid popularity. Never again.
We are poised to ensure that Nigeria remains one United Nation against all odds.
God bless the federal republic of Nigeria.
Thank you ladies and gentlemen.
Heads of Coalition of Youth Groups in Nigeria.
