Obi condemns attack on Imo students, absolves IPOB, calls for investigation PETER-OBI588507



Ex-Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has condemned the reported attack on school children sitting for WAEC examination in Imo State, describing it as un-Igbo, out of place and misguided aggression.

Obi who spoke to journalists said he does not believe any Igbo man would contemplate attacking innocent students, more so those taking their WAEC exams, to compete with the rest of West Africans over academic excellence.

He said education should ideally be treated as something "sacred' because it is not just about the future of the children, but also the future of society.

Obi wondered who could be responsible for the attack, saying it was perplexing against the fact that IPOB had issued countless press releases suspending the Monday sit-at-home and therefore could not logically be responsible for the attack.

Based on his observations, Obi called for proper investigations to unravel those behind the attack.

He said: "Since IPOB has announced the suspension of the sit-at-home, it is reasonable to suspect that other forces might be hiding behind IPOB to draw back the South-East through such acts as well as the needless call for stay at home on Mondays, a critical day for business/official work, which is only hurting the economy of the South-East.

"Would investors come to the zone under the present condition? Would established businesses not think of leaving the South-East under such a condition? Would traders from neighbouring countries that flock Aba and Onitsha on Mondays not seek and stick with alternatives? Would some industries not think of relocating?"

Obi called on political leaders to further strengthen their collective engagements with the view to charting the best path for the South-East.
