Oraifite Bloody Invasion/Carnage: Affected Families And Victims Cry Out For Justice Against The Nigerian Security Forces

Oraifite Bloody Invasion/Carnage: Affected Families And Victims Cry Out For Justice Against The Nigerian Security Forces.

Almost 23 weeks running after the heinous carnage perpetrated by the combined team of the Nigerian Security Forces (Police, Army) and others in the ancestral home of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor in Oraifite, on Monday 2nd December 2019, it is disappointing to state that justice has not yet been served by the authorities concerned against this heartwrenching bloodlet. Lives were lost and properties worth millions of naira were wantonly destroyed by the invading armed Nigerian security operatives,  illegally drafted to unleash mayhem/havoc on a mourning home, which bloody onslaught was reportedly bankrolled by Oraifite controversial businessman, Emeka Orakwue Offor, at the behest of government at the center.

Displaced members of Ejiofor's family and  affected members of the community are crying out loud to good spirited individuals to come to their aid. Their homes/shops were thoroughly looted and brazenly burnt down and consequently destroyed by the combined team of the Nigerian police force and the army, on that fateful day of 2nd December 2019, during this murderously invasion of the home of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor. Four (4) unarmed, innocent citizens were gruesomely murderd, with several others sustaining various degrees of gunshot wounds, including Barrister Ejiofor's aged mother who is yet down with gun shot injuries. Vehicles and household properties amongst other valuables, were carefully looted and remnants completely destroyed by the invading    monsters in security uniforms.

Recall that Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor who doubles as IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's Attorney, had barely  concluded the burial rites of his late brother, Reverend Chukwukpelum Louis Ejiofor, who died on Wednesday 9th October 2019, when this heinous carnage was visited on his household. Though  Barrister Ejiofor was targeted for elimination during this bloody invasion of his ancestral home,  but by divine act of providence, he was not at home at the time of the attack,  whose absence angered the invading assassins in security uniform and consequently resulted to their  reckless shooting and killing of innocent people in his house.

Although hearing on the case filed by Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has commenced at the Nigerian Federal High Court, Awka, Anambra State, a couple of months ago but the affected families currently displaced by this unfortunate occurence are in dire need of speedy intervention of well spirited individuals and Government Agencies  to rebuild their homes and reunite with their immediate environment,  which excruciating circumstance has been worsened by the devastating effect of Covid-19 pandemic currently ravaging the entire country. The issues of loss of means of livelihood (shops and goods) as a result of these barbaric acts of the Nigerian security operatives have indeed greatly worsened the chances of survival of the victims even in the face of the present critical economic realities.

In an interview conducted by Family Writers Press International,  disturbing revelations abound. Aged mothers/women between the ages of 60 and 90 years,  fell victims of torture and brutality during this callous attack in Oraifite community. Most of them courageously narrated their gory experiences during the raid of their various homes on that fateful day, which accounts ranged from beating, molestation and threats of death by the police officers. One of the old women narrated how gallons of water were emptied on her and failed attempt to set her ablaze. The security operatives were disappointed to learn that the substance emptied on her was not fuel but water, otherwise she would have been a dead person by now. She further revealed that all the window louvres of her home within the neighborhood, were shattered. Those glasses remain unreplaced till date due to financial difficulty.

On Tuesday 12th May 2020, Family Writers Press International crew frantically tried to reach out to other victims of the carnage in their homes within the community for additional first hand information of all that transpired. It was all same line of story as the victims painfully noted that it was pathetically  unlawful and despicably inhuman for supposed protectors of the innocent citizens, to unleash such levels of criminality/mayhem against them. Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor's family members who are presently homeless, as well as other affected persons in the neighborhood are still living in shock of the unspeakable experience and are still hugely traumatized even as they crave for justice against this bizarre misadventure.

The innocent citizens of Oraifite community, therefore use this medium to appeal to the conscience of the concerned authorities, good spirited individuals and of course human rights bodies, to come to their aid. Justice must be done and most importantly, seen to have been done in this crime against humanity.
