Should FG Declare State Of Emergency In South-East As Joe Igbokwe Suggested Over The Killings In SE?

The activities of Unknown Gunmen within the southeast region has caused a lot of tension across some states within the area. Residents and some political leaders in the southeast region have been murdered and kidnapped by these unknown gunmen.

However, a lot of people are curious to know the people or group that are responsible for carrying out these attacks within the southeast region.

It's important to recall that Ahmed Gulak was murdered by these unknown gunmen during a day that a Sit-At-Home order was placed by IPOB. The death of Gulak raised many arguments and tension within the country.

Recently, "SaharaReporters" reported that Chike Akunyili (the husband of late Prof Dora Akunyili) was killed by "unknown gunmen". A family source disclosed that "Chike Akunyili was shot on "Tuesday" night near Onitsha. The recent murder of Chike Akunyili has caused a lot of mixed reactions from different individuals.

Joe Igbokwe (A Member of All Progressive Congress in Lagos State) advised the Federal Government led by President Buhari to immediately declare a State of Emergency within the South East region.

So, many people are curious to know if FG should declare a state of emergency in South-east as suggested by Joe Igbokwe in order to end the killings within the Southeast region.

Nevertheless, I believe that FG should not declare a State of Emergency in Southeast region because it will affect the economic and social activities within the region.

Declaring a state of emergency in Southeast region will affect the education sector and other crucial sectors within the States in Southeast.

Therefore, I will advise FG to provide enough security officers across the Southeastern States in order to protect the residents and leaders from these Unknown Gunmen.

FG should ensure that the hideouts of these unknown gunmen are discovered and destroyed within the southeast region.

Also, instead of declaring a state of emergency in Southeast region, Buhari's Govt should begin an investigation to know those that are sponsoring these unknown gunmen.

So, do you think that FG should declare a state of emergency in Southeast region as suggested by Joe Igbokwe?.
