"IEI, seeks to draw the attention of international community to the challenging situations in SouthEast caused by the activities of Nigerian Security Agencies, they are hell bent to disrupt the security system in south east region as they have taken steps to embark on their decision. The actions taken by Security Agencies has brought Southeast region to state of hopelessness and despair. The Southeast region was one of the most peaceful region before President Muhammadu Buhari step into office.

"With grave concern, we have noted the total lack of the Federal Government Agencies to provide security in the Southeast region. Meanwhile, the so-called security agencies that are to ensure peace and order, rather unleash mayhem on the Igbo people of the South-East in Nigeria which include the killing of unarmed civilians, injuring and killing of college students, ethnic cleansing, community dislocation and societal upheavals", the statement reads.
