A former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has expressed sadness over the assault on school children and teachers by some unknown gunmen in the South-East.
Akelicious reports that some unknown gunmen, on Wednesday, flogged some pupils and their teachers for disobeying the sit-at-home exercise to protest against the incarceration of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is still in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Reacting to the sad incident in a Twitter post on Thursday, the former Enugu East Senator blamed the attacks on pupils and their teachers on tribalism and religious bigotry.
Nnamani remarked that the sad development only occurs in a society that celebrates incompetence, half knowledge and ignorance, adding that it is a decline of Igbo civilization.
He wrote, “The decline and decline of Igbo civilization. Strange happenings in a strange land. How do we explain the Igbo flogging of school children, teachers and mothers? Offense?
“Igbo fulfilling the mythological trinity, Igbambo (Hustle)! Only a society that celebrates incompetence, half knowledge and ignorance. All shrouded in the darkest eclipse of tribalism and religious bigotry”
