Killing Of Soldiers in Aba: needless waste of life, heartless, dastardly – Senator Nwaka condemns act, commiserates with Abia Governor



Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abia State, Senator Emma Nwaka, has commiserated with Abia Governor Dr Alex Otti and the people of the state over the gruesome killing of soldiers in Aba, Abia State by gun men Thursday May 30th.

Last week, IPOB declared May 30 as a sit-at-home in the south-east to honour “our heroes and heroines” who died in the civil war between 1967 and 1970.

The “Biafran Heroes Day” sit-at-home declared by the outlawed group paralysed commercial and economic activities in parts of Anambra, Enugu, Imo, Abia and Ebonyi States as banks, schools, markets, motor parks, and fuel stations and other public places were shut on Thursday.

Senator Nwaka in a condolence message he personally sent to Dailytrailnews described the act as needless waste of life as he maintained that such heartless and dastardly acts of bloodletting don’t define “who we are as Abians”.

see below full statement

Your Excellency, I share your grief and pain regarding the needless waste of the life of soldiers on official duty on Abia soil.

Such heartless and dastardly acts of bloodletting don’t define who we are as Abians.

May God grant eternal repose to the souls of those gallant soldiers, and to their families, the fortitude to bear their loss.

And may God, in his infinite mercy, grant you the wisdom to handle the fallout from this sad incident.

May innocent citizens not suffer on account of whatever reprisal steps the military might decide to embark upon.
