A body of strong Igbo personalities, the Igbo Leaders of Thought, has warned that President Muhammadu Buhari’s plan to probe the immediate past federal government should not be a ploy to humiliate his political opponents including former President Goodluck Jonathan.

In a statement titled “Only truth and justice endures,” signed by Evangelist Elliot Uko, the group deputy secretary, he said the impending probe must be devoid of “witch-hunting and smear agenda,” The Punch reports.

He said: “Desirable as the probe and prosecution of corrupt officials of the outgone regime is, we must endeavour to avoid witch-hunting and smear agenda.

“Only the probe and prosecution of factual, traceable and clearly identifiable cases of abuse of office and misuse of public funds will inspire confidence and receive commendation of the citizenry and the international community.

“Humiliating and deliberately degrading political opponents in the guise of probe and prosecution of corrupt officials will only reduce the whole exercise to a jamboree, that could lead to a lot of a acrimony and bad blood which we believe, is the last thing Nigeria needs at the moment.”
