Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has blamed members of the deep state and foreign mercenaries for executing the “vicious” attacks on the Abia State cattle market so as to instigate the killings of Igbos living in the North and to spread civil conflicts between Igbos and their Northern brethren.

“We urge the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Governors of the South East of Nigeria and the Igbo World’s congress to jointly hire forensic and security experts and investigators from any part of the world to uncover the exact identities of the so-called unknown gunmen,” HURIWA said in a statement signed by Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko its national coordinator, and the National Media Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf.

HURIWA said it believes that “members of the security forces or foreign mercenaries hired by Miyetti Allah Cattle Owners Association, angered by the anti- open grazing legislations in the South East and are now on a mission to start off a civil war by attacking peaceful cattle owners just so the North will boil in anger and to transfer the aggression and reprisals on peaceful Igbo citizens of Nigeria living legitimately with their Northern brothers/sisters.

“We appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to be a statesman and douse the rising tension by releasing the wrong lyrics detained leader of the now proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and initiate broad-based National reconciliation and constructive dialogues among ethnicities to promote National integration and unity in Nigeria.”

HURIWA said it believes that the alleged ill advised decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to clamp down militarily on the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is the fundamental cause of the security crisis in the southeast because diverse groups with divisive agenda are now seeking to stoke up the embers of disunity.
