Displeased with the gruesome killing of the IPOB members, Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State, southeast Nigeria took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to express sadness of the killing off of the 21 IPOB members, saying that “recent killing of unarmed youths in Enugu is condemnable, just as the senseless killing of Nigerians in any part of the country.
