CD wants charges against IPOB Igbo Women dropped. ...Says Operation Python Dance 111 is Intimidation


www.odogwublog.com reports that the Campaign for Democracy (CD), has called on the Federal and Imo State Governments  to with immediate effect drop charges against 112 Igbo Women arrested and arraigned at the Owerri Magistrate Court with 10-count charge of treasonable felony and related charges.


The National Publicity secretary, Dede Uzor A.Uzor told newsmen in Owerri,Imo  State that these pregnant and aged women should be relaeased  unconditionally with immediate effect and all the trumped up charges withdrawn.

Said the CD image maker " we condemn in a very strong term the  arrest and arraignment  of these women of Igbo land. It is part of continuous intimidation, harassment and subjugation of Ndigbo in Nigeria by President Mohammed Buhari led Federal Government".

Continuing he said " the arrest of these women who were peaceful and without arms in exercising their rights should be condemned by every right thinking person and international community. The illegal  arrest to intimidate and forcefully  teargas old women of about 70 to 80 years to stop them from from exercising their fundamental human rights in a democratic regime negates the Constitution of Nigeria especially chapter 4 of section 33 to 40 of 1999 Constitution as amended" otherwise known as the fundamental human rights.

He said it was equally "against natural and  moral law to stop them  from exercising their political right and embarking on political protest.t is alien in a democratic order and should be condemned".

He called on the United Nations (UN) , International Criminal Court (ICC) to send their special repertoire to Nigeria to investigate this crime against human family and those allegedly murdered and thrown into an Aba  forest in Abia  state,Dede Uzor fumes

Dede Uzor  noted that Buhari's continuous intimidation of Ndigbo showed that he does not need their votes in 2019.

"That is why he has adopted the culture of intimidation,impunity and annihilation. Ndigbo should rise up and take their destiny in their own hands" said Dede Uzor.

In another development CD has condemned the planned commencement of Operation Python Dance 111 by the Nigerian Army in the South East, describing it as another plot to kill defenceless Igbo youths for unjustifiable reasons.

They noted that  Buhari had constituted Operation Python Dance 1 and 11 which led to the killing of 250 and 150 Igbo youths respectively in an account of Amnesty Internationals disposition.

They said another Operation Python Dance in Igbo land where there is no crisis amouted  to a deliberate plot to provoke Ndigbo and slaughter the youths.

CD asked the President and the Nigerian Army to "shelve the murderous plot"  with immediate effect.
