There are many questions, to ask the youths reigning praises, on these men who should be marked as criminals, are they oblivious to the fact that those who have been killed have families? These are men of Igbo descent, killed by their brothers, for what reason? And some youths are applauding their actions, these events have been very shameful. These youths should also know that what is currently happening is never what the Igbo founding fathers hoped for. The attacks need to stop.
