Chief Ikokwu, the Chairman of the defunct Nigeria Peoples Party (NPP) in the old Anambra State in the Second Republic has said that the South East “must remain vigilant and not take things for granted” since the insurgent group, Boko Haram, “has threatened to attack the South-East.
The elder Statesman and politician during an interview with Vanguard advised South East people to critically study the ongoing economic and biochemical clashes between the Western and Eastern nations.
“From the millennial creation of humans and animals it has been wars and bickering everywhere and survival of the fittest in the name of civilisation,” he stated.
Ikokwu continued; “Cannibalism is a natural strategy for survival. We have to adumbrate our own survival strategy.”
The 83-year-old also reacted to the lockdown directive by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“General Buhari cannot just lock down Lagos and Ogun without the necessary palliatives, funding or food-wise in a secure situation. He is dealing with human beings and not animals.
“They should also put on their caps instead of face masks as the virus does not segregate or discriminate or avoid prestigious locations. We must have existential and strategic equations as a fair remedy for all.
“I am concerned about further two weeks lock-down of Lagos and Ogun states without real Federal Government palliatives while threats of insecurity persist.”
