A Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Engineer Joe Igbokwe, has reacted over the recent crisis rocking the south-east region of the country claiming some bad elements have taken over the region.
According to reports, members of the Proscribed IPOB group in solidarity with their leader who is in detention issued a sit-at-home order to residents and commuters for the past few weeks in the south east. This order has made streets, communities, towns and cities get deserted and sales outlets closed, thus causing a headache for the government as the states keep losing a huge amount of money as the order has grounded various economic activities which helps to generate revenue in the region.
Also, the sit-at-home order has caused loss of lives and properties as the miscreants go around to burn and destroy cars, commercial tricycle and motorcycles, trucks conveying spare parts and food items, inter-state buses conveying passengers as well as business outlets over accusation of violating the sit at home order. This development has brought hardship on the innocent citizens whose means of livelihood have been dealt a huge blow by what is happening in the region.

Reacting to what is happening in the southeast, Joe Igbokwe claimed that some people set up, pushed and encouraged the Proscribed IPOB and ESN group, allegedly terrorizing the region to become a criminal organization that can no longer be managed. He added that this move has made criminals, Killers and Bandits take over the southeast, which the center cannot hold anymore.
This statement by Joe Igbokwe could be true as the activities of the unknown gunmen and Killers in the southeast are going beyond control. Despite the formation of the South East security network known as "Ebubeagu", the criminals have consistently launched attacks on innocent citizens, very important people in the state.
Apart from that, they have also been accused of being the brain behind the attack on police and military personnel, government facilities among others in the region with no visible solution in site to end the killing and destruction going on in the region so far.
