Dr. Chukwuemaka Ezeife, former gov­ernor of Anambra State, has said that it is disappointing that Pres­ident Muhammadu Buhari is using the military to fight innocent civilians in Orlu, IMO State and some parts of the South-East.

The former governor re­gretted that the President had chosen to use the Air Force and land troops to fight civilians, who accord­ing to him, were not bandits, kidnappers, Boko Haram or terrorists.

He queried if there are two laws in the country, one for Ndigbo and the other for the rest of the country.

Ezeife said that the ac­tion of the President is dis­appointing.

He maintained that the Federal Government was tactically helping the Indige­nous People of Biafra (IPOB) to grow.

He added: “President Buhari is using Air Force, land troops to fight civil­ians who are not bandits, Boko Haram, kidnappers or any of the violent peo­ple. Do we have two laws,? one for Ndigbo and the oth­er for the rest of the coun­try? It should also interest you to know that it is the Federal Government that is really helping IPOB to grow. There is a referendum in the South-East now of Bi­afra or no Biafra. It is heart­breaking that you have the Air Force, Army, all of them fighting against our people. I have not much to say except that the Federal Government is planning the disintegra­tion of Nigeria.”

The elder statesman said that the implication of the action of the Federal Gov­ernment is the reality of a country planning to segre­gate against some other cit­izens and lamented that the military should not be used to fight local wars.
