Okwadike Chukwuemeka Ezeife, the former governor of old Anambra state has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of fighting a war against Igbo people just like he did during the civil war.
According to a report on Breaking Times, the elder statesman accused President Buhari of treating the south eastern people badly just like he did during the Biafra war fought between 1967-1970 in which he was also a key officer.

Ezeife however warned the protesters not to resort to self-defence or use arms as that will only provide justification for killing them.
“At this stage, it does not make any sense to talk about self-de­fence. If (armed) self-defence is at­tempted, it can only lead to more de­population of South East youths.
“Buhari will continue fighting Bia­fra or now, Ndigbo – for as long as God gives him breath. Let us not give him any semblance of excuse or justifica­tion; let us not give him the opportu­nity to further slaughter our youths. Thinking persons should, in the cir­cumstance, see any effort at self-de­fence as suicidal!”
He claimed the strategy of the president was to depopulate the south east with the way soldiers were engaging the protesters.
“This means that reduc­ing the population of the South-East remains a legitimate strategy. The war continues for as long as those like him, who fought in the war, remain alive. Thus, we must take, as war dead, the casualties at the Aba School Com­pound, days ago, where unarmed members of Indigenous Peoples of Bi­afra (IPOB), were gathered and were dealt with: 50 persons in all, with 10 dead on the spot.
“We have no way to know yet how many of the wounded have died. One wonders whether, even in wars, there are no rules of engagement.
“Armed policemen and soldiers, shooting-to-death innocent or, at least, unarmed individuals, can only be seen, properly, as crime against hu­manity, even worse than pogrom!!! Body language may be more com­manding than express orders or com­mands.”
He commended members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra for taking their agitation to the United Nations. He said the absence of Igbo persons in Buhari’s first 40 appointments incited the agitation for Biafra. He also said the arrest and continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu and not giving Igbos key ministerial positions also contributed to the growing tension
