The Ekwunife family of Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State have send a save-our-soul message to Nigerians and the international Community to save the entire family from being wiped out from the surface of the earth by the Buhari Government.
The trio of Mr.Samuel Anayo Ekwunife, Mrs.Chinyere Linda Ekwunife and Miss Diana Ekwunife, the Survivors of the Ekwunife dynasty had to run to a hiding place after the despicable treatment melted to them by Army dominated “Operation Python”.
DECENCY GLOBAL NEWS gathered that the family is going through her current travails because of their alleged link to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s proclamation of the state of ‘Biafra.
It would be recalled that when incumbent administration Introduced Operation Phyton in the South East, multitude of self-determination groups and sociocultural organizations rose to denounce the insensitive deployment of military force during a very important time of year throughout the region to scuttle the normal societal activities of the indigenous inhabitants of the region.
They had claimed that Introduction of the Army into Igbo heartland, under the cover of a spurious military exercise, conveys the extent of disdain and loathing that President Buhari personally has for the archetypal Igbo.
“It is is not only that Buhari has used his administration to further marginalize and alienate Ndiigbo in scheme of things, but he also repeatedly dispatched his unruly jackboots into Igbo heartland to shoot at unarmed nonviolent youths simply because they deeply empathize with and support the Biafra self-determination agenda.
“The same government has consistently turned blind eye to the rampaging AK 47-wielding Fulani herdsmen militia who have literally taken the law into their own hands in the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria by killing sedentary indigenous farmers so as to convert their farmlands into pastures for the cattle herds,” the opposition to the introduction of Operation Phyton stated.
“It is idiotic, however, to presume that summary extrajudicial killings of pro-Biafra agitators and sympathizers shall persuade the millions of disaffected citizens nationwide to change their minds and then begin to embrace the rotten, decrepit and unacceptable status quo,” they counseled.
Samuel Anayo Ekwunife who wrote from an hide out, on behalf of Ekwunife family in a save-our-soul appeal letter exclusively obtained by DECENCY GLOBAL NEWS said their perceived offence was because of Nnamdi Kanu’s activities in demanding for the Sovereign state of Biafra.
According to him, “Having lost my aged parents with uncles and their siblings in a raid of state security agents, tagged operation python. Our offense is being one of the followers of Nnamdi Kanu, who is from our clan.
“Thus we have become targets of state security agents and unknown gunmen. My business premises housing four lock-up shops were looted in Awka, the state capital, my immediate senior brother was kidnapped with his wife and first son , killed after I paid ransom running into millions.
“I and family are being hunted and traumatized for belonging to a clan/tribe in Awka south local government area of Anambra State,” he lamented.
Samuel Ekwunife then appealed to all well meaning Nigerians and the international community to come to their rescue or government backed security agents wipes them off. “I’m using this medium to cry out to whatever assistance because we want to live life and we have right to live our lives,” he appealed.
The SOS appeal letter read thus:
