The Anambra State Government has said there is no religious killing in the state, contrary to the insinuations making the rounds.

In a statement, on Tuesday, the state government, through the Press Secretary to the governor, Christian Aburime, said the clarification became necessary because of what it described as a “misleading” publication on the front page of Daily Trust Newspaper.

Aburime stated that Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s administration has not only demonstrated commitment in tackling insecurity, but has continuously reassured both indigenes and non-indigenes in the state of their protection and safety.

He noted that, while it is true that there is general insecurity across the country, there is no targeted religious or ethnic killings in Anambra State, adding that Anambra indigenes have suffered more casualties as a result of the unfortunate killings.

The statement read in part, “This release has become necessary to set the records straight about a misleading publication on the front page of Daily Trust Newspaper of Tuesday, May 24, 2022. It reads as follows: “IPOB kills woman, 4 kids, 6 other Northerners in Anambra,” with several riders.

“While it is true that there is general insecurity across the country, there is no targeted religious or ethnic killings in Anambra State. As a matter of fact, Anambra indigenes have suffered more casualties as a result of the unfortunate killings.

“The insensitive slant of the Daily Trust report have the tendency to stir anger and disaffection in other parts of the country.

“The report, therefore, is totally unacceptable and inimical to the unity and progress of the nation.

“The government of Anambra State hereby states that the report is not only sensational but misleading and should be immediately retracted to reflect the real situation on the ground.

“It is on record that Ndi Anambra and people of the North and other parts of the country, who live and do business in the state, not only share common values, but have always lived at peace with one another other in the state.

“Governor Soludo’s administration has not only demonstrated commitment in tackling insecurity, but has continuously reassured both indigenes and non-indigenes in the state of their protection and safety.”
