The body in a press release sided by Yinka Odumakin, made available to media houses, claimed that there is a nexus between the bombing of the Chief’s home and his stand for the call for self defence in a recent press conference held in Abuja.

“This is why we are demanding a thorough investigation whose report will be made public into the terror attack on Nwodo's home shortly after this press conference  so as to ascertain that there is no cause and effect in this incident .

“We are stiff worried at the intensification of terror in our land but will hold our breath until we have reports of the investigations.” They stated.

Press Statement 

Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Demand Inquiry into Explosion At Nwodo's Home

The Leaders of Southern and Middle Belt Forum have received the initial reports of a bomb explosion that occurred at the Ukehe country home of the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo,Chief John Nnia Nwodo at around 5:30 am on Sunday when members of the household were getting ready for the early morning mass.

What has been described as an Improvised Explosive Device (IED)was said to have been hurled over the fence into the compound causing damage to the windows, the ceiling of  one  the houses in the compound and air conditioning units.

We thank God for Nwodo that he did not suffer any loss of life in this terror attack .

Five days before this ungodly attack , Nwodo was the spokesman of Southern and Middle Belt Forum Leaders at a press conference in Abuja, where we bemoaned the harassments that Gen T.Y Danjuma and his community  have been subjected to, over his call for Nigerians to defend themselves against attacks from terror herdsmen whom he alleged have collusion from security forces and operating unhinged.

The Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum therefore backed the self-defense call as lawful and moral.

This is why we are demanding a thorough investigation whose report will be made public into the terror attack on Nwodo's home shortly after this press conference  so as to ascertain that there is no cause and effect in this incident .

We are stiff worried at the intensification of terror in our land but will hold our breath until we have reports of the investigations.

Yinka Odumakin.
For: Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum
