The President of Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), Prof. Uzodinma Nwala has quit from Southeast Security Committee headed by Gen Obi Abel Umahi (rtd).

Nwala while announcing his decision to quit, cited lack of progress in the committee and the decision of the Southeast governors to adopt the community policing initiative of the federal government as opposed to the zonal security outfit canvassed by the committee.

Prof Nwala who announced his decision in a letter dated August 25, 2020 addressed to the Gen. Umahi, also copied to Governor Umahi, Chairman South-East Governors Forum; The South-East Governors Forum; The President General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo; The Coalition of Alaigbo Religious and Civil Society Organizations; Pan-Igbo Groups and Pro-Biafra Organizations in Alaigbo; Chairman, South-East Council of Traditional Rulers; Prof Ben Nwabueze, Igbo Leaders of Thought (ILT); Chief Mbazulike Amaechi; His Lordship, Bishop Obi Udezue Onubogu, among others.

He criticized governors of the Southeast for embracing community policing even after the ADF had, according to him, exposed its inherent character as a policy to encourage the continued serial killing, kidnapping and rape of Igbo women as well as ensure the occupation of Alaigbo by Jihadists.

The ADF president regretted that since the security committee was constituted early in the year, it has not made any progress, even as he argued that the need for it no longer exists since the purpose for its formation has been defeated.

He also cited the killing of 21 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by security agencies in Enugu on Sunday.

“I write to resign formally as a member of the South-East Security Committee which was set up at a Joint Meeting of the Governors Forum, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) since February 2020,” he wrote.
