Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has accused the Federal Government of provoking and marginalising Igbos.

Ekweremadu also warned that the Igbos will no longer accept the shoddy treatment meted out to them by the government.

He said  “As Ndigbo, we are going through trying periods; we are being provoked everyday by the government of the country; by the way they treat our people especially and the marginalisation going on at the level of the Federal government.

“We are all aware of the contributions of the Igbo to the growth and development of this country. We have done so much for this country and we deserve some amount of respect; and until we get our respect, Nigeria will not be the same.\

“So, any person who thinks the Igbo will be relegated, is joking; we believe in equity and justice. We will never accept a situation where Igbo or any other tribe for that matter is excluded in the governance of this country. Nigeria belongs to all of us.”

Meanwhile, an Igbo group, Aka Ikenga has called for an autopsy to be carried out on the corpses the Department of State Services (DSS) alleged are Fulani herdsmen.
