The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has warned Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate the Oyibo massacre and killings of innocent youths in Oyibo community of River State. They made this statement in a Press Release. They issued a warning to President Buhari to stop the waste of human lives and withdraw the military from that community immediately.
The CUPP therefore urges him to call off his ongoing use of brutal military action in Oyibo community. They issued a petition to international human right bodies to start criminal trials of those who participated in the extra judicial killings in the state.
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has again found it extremely important to raise its voice against the ongoing brutal military onslaught against residents of Oyibo in Rivers State.
This massacre under the guise of peacekeeping is coming barely few days after the same military was unleashed on peaceful protesters in Lekki area of Lagos State.
It is indeed worrisome that despite the negative reactions the Lekki incident attracted both from local and international scenes; the government of President Muhammadu Buhari still deployed troops to Oyibo community to commit genocide.
Opposition political parties are wondering the rationale behind this government’s easy way of shedding innocent blood without blinking an eye. We are hereby calling on the President to immediately call off the ongoing use of brutal force by soldiers in Oyibo community.
We are also calling on international human right bodies to start criminal trials of those who participated in the extra judicial killings of defenseless people in Oyibo community and other parts of the country. This nation is in a democracy and we therefore condemn any attempt to militarize the country under any guise.
