ENDSARS: Nwawuba releases names of casualties in Mbaitoli, seeks justice, urges calm

Member representing Mbaitoli-Ikeduru in the Green Chambers of the National Assembly, Henry Nwawuba, this weekend condemned the mindless killing of some of his constituents, security operatives and others residing in Mbaitoli area of his constituency during the Endsars protest which later turned bloody.

The visible angry legislator agreed however with the demands of the protesters and peaceful nature of the agitations ab-initio but condemned in it’s entirety obvious hijack of the protests by criminal and blood sucking elements whose only franchise was to kill and maim for no just reason. Hon. Nwawuba informed that Mbaitoli which is one of the LGAs in his constituency received it hot during the heat of the protest on 21-10-2020 to extent that the Nworieubi Police Division headquarters was literally razed down among other public buildings torched. Twelve souls according to the federal lawmaker were killed by suspected hoodlums riding in an unmarked white Toyota Hummer bus, coordinating the killings unchallenged and leaving the gory scenes unhurt. He gave the following names with their details as those that lost their lives during the Endsars protest in Mbaitoli thus:

  1. Cpl Godwin Elkanah (Division still unknown) He was shot by a group of unidentified men driving a white Toyota hiace along owerri orlu road by Eziama Orodo junction precisely around 2.15pm on wednesday the 21st of October

Hon Henry Nwawuba called on his constituents to remain calm in the face of the dastardly act and assured that justice will be given to the casualties soon. He equally stressed that the innocent blood of the dead ones will continue to hunt the perpetrators of the heinous act even as he never ruled out the possibility of their eventual arrest, prosecution and conviction.

He promised to engage the National Assembly, civil society groups, human rights lawyers and the media in seeking justice for those that lost their lives.
