Ndigbo Lagos, the umbrella organisation of all Igbo groups in Lagos has condemned in very strong terms what it called the incursions of the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram, into Igboland.

In a statement signed by the Director of Communications and Strategy, Chief Chuma Igwe, Ndigbo Lagos condemned the infiltration of Boko Haram operatives in the Southeast particularly the news that 486 Boko Haram suspects were arrested in Abia State by Nigerian soldiers.

'Even more condemnable is the official information from the Nigerian Army that amongst them was identified a notorious and wanted kingpin of the dreaded murderous Boko Haram. It is instructive that the apprehension of these 486 suspected Boko Haram members in 33 Toyota Hiace buses in Abia State, along Enugu-Port Harcourt road at about 2.00 am, occurred just a few days after the timely discovery of 6 time-bombs at the Port Harcourt Road branch of Winners Chapel Church, Owerri, a church that reportedly has over 10,000 worshippers on Sunday services,' the group said.

Warning that an invasion of the South East portends very dangerous consequences for the Nigerian nation, the group said it was putting the Federal Government and Islamic religious groups on notice.
