A former Minister of Education and co-founder of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, Oby Ezekwesili took to Twitter this morning, June 1, to lament about the worsening insecurity in the Southeast region of the country.
In her thread, Ezekwesili pointed out that it is wrong and dangerous to confuse the South East with IPOB as they are not the same. She opined that the President mismanaged the IPOB saga that it has degenerated into such a chaotic episode where lives are being cut short in the region.
She appealed to the new Chief of Army Staff, Maj Gen. Yahaya to work towards gaining the trust and confidence of the South East with a video of ending the crisis in the region.
She also condemned the decision of security agents to storm a church in Enugu state last Sunday, May 30 to walk the worshippers out over claims they are members of IPOB.

The South East on my mind.
Today is the beginning of a new month and carries with it the possibilities that our @NigeriaGov can #TakeResponsibility and deescalate the situation NOW.
That video of @HQNigerianArmy @PoliceNG marching worshippers in Enugu out of church is a tragic.— Oby Ezekwesili (@obyezeks) June 1, 2021
