Following the incessant crisis in Ohafia communities between the military and our youths which has led to the loss of lives on both sides and the destruction of property majorly belonging to our people, I am appealing to our youths to sheath their swords.
I understand that one way or the other there must have been some level of provocation which the result is the challenge we are facing today. Therefore,I’m pleading not as a political leader but as one of you that we all should give peace a chance.
I know what we all want and desire is peace, development, and security of our people and I can assure you all that I have already started making every necessary move to restore lasting peace, ensure the release of those arrested as well and make sure none of our people suffers any form of victimization or harassment from the security agents by tackling the cause of this crisis but first we need to give peace a chance for the good and benefit of us all.
