Thomas Phils, a popular Nigerian human rights activist has taken to his Facebook handle to disclose that there will be a heavy military present in south east in the coming weeks over rising insecurities in the region.
Quoting the citizen journalist, he wrote that:
“In the coming weeks, the military presence in the east will be heavy. The army will storm the east and will deal decisively with anyone causing public unrest.
The bad part is that innocent well-meaning people may be casualties. Never take actions to attract heavy military actions. The aftermath is not always pleasant.”
This comment by the famous human rights activist and journalist, is coming some hours after Joe Igbokwe, a politician and engineer who is currently serving as Special Adviser for Drainage & Water Resources to Lagos State Governor, countryhome in Nnewi, Anambra State was set ablaze by yet-to-be-identified attackers on Sunday.
This disturbing incident is also coming a couple of days after Chke Akunyili, the husband to the late NAFDAC boss Dr Dora Akunyili, was assassinated alongside several others in Anambra State.
Thanks for reading.
