A House of Representatives lawmaker from Imo State, Honourable Bede Eke, on Thursday, raised the alarm that soldiers in concert with other security forces, were presently, freely killing people in the state to avenge the murder of an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Ahmed Gulak.

The lawmaker, who represents Abor Mbaise/ Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency of Imo State, said that his constituents were the worst hit in the ongoing assault.

The legislator, who said that his constituency, hosting the Airport, around where Ahmed Gulak was killed has remained under siege by the military, in spite of police’s confirmations that they had uncovered and killed the killers of Gulak.

He said already, some innocent persons killed so far by the soldiers were, “Noel Chigbu Nzeribe
Tochi Ekwe and his missing kingsmen.”

The lawmaker who addressed a press briefing in Abuja, said that many of the people of the area have been driven to the bushes while others fled to where they have spent days without their families.

While totally condemning Gulak’s gruesome murder in his constituency, Eke appealed to the security agencies to exercise restrain and stop killing innocent people.

He said calls from his constituents have reached a crescendo for his intervention in their current ordeal in the hands of these security operatives.

Eke asked the police and the army to conduct discreet investigation, identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice rather than resort to the ongoing mass intimidation and killings of his constituents.

“Gullak was killed, the police said they have killed the killers, why then are you harassing and killing my people?

“The Governor said it was politically motivated killing, police said it is IPOB/ ESN where are my people here?

“We lost a young man. Until his death owns and operates a Shawarma shop just to make ends meet. He was hot by the army because he could not obey the rules at the checkpoint.

“The family has written a petition to the army. We as the people of Ngor Okpala/Mbaise are not happy about it and as the representative of the people, I want to make it known to the world that we are waiting for the outcome of the petition.

“As the representative of the people, I am giving the army 14 to respond to the killing of that young man who left a pregnant wife and his two children. One is 3 and the other is 2 years old.” he said

He warned that iif the killings and harassment of his constituents should persist without proper investigation, he would file a petition to the House to ensure that the security agencies are investigated.

The legislator said that the people of the area have been so kind and gave their land to government for the construction of an airport and subsequently a Naval base.

He however expressed regrets saying that upon this good gesture extended to the federal authorities, they have refused to enter into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the people of the constituency.
