Python Dance 3: FG Is Provocating Ndigbo – Evangelist Elliot
- by Expresgist
The founder of Igbo Youth Movement (IYM), Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, has described as provocative, the Operation Python Dance 3 scheduled to hold in south east zone by the Nigeria Army.
Elliot disclosed this in a meeting with several Igbo groups in Enugu, while reacting to a sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in remembrance of her fallen heroes.
He said: “Every September military equipment is moved menacingly into Igbo land just to remind us that we are a conquered people.
“Bringing the so-called Python Dance 3 to our peaceful region now is only designed to deliberately provoke a confrontation that will lead to further loss of lives as they did last year.
“Next, they will say some students threw stones at them and mayhem will be unleashed on our people.”
He wondered why the government has chosen to constantly invade peaceful Igbo land rather than channel her strength to violent prone places.
“There’s no war going on here, there are no killings going on here. Igbo land is peaceful, so why the constant invasion.
“The soldiers should be drafted to the Sambisa Forest in Borno State and other local governments where killings are going on everyday.
“They should go to Plateau, Taraba and Benue states among others where there are killings and save hapless citizens who are slaughtered daily.”
Elliot, however, maintained that the order must be observed, calling on Ndigbo to stay indoors that day.
“I beckon on all Ndigbo who are aggrieved over this endless provocative and humiliating invasion called Operation Python Dance 3, to stay indoors on Friday, September 14.
“This will send message to the world that we are angry over this constant humiliation,” he added.
