HURIWA, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, to stop chasing shadows.

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, to stop chasing shadows and speaking from both sides of their mouths over the recent inferno that engulfed an illegal refinery site, leading to the death of over 100 persons engaged in crude oil bunkering.

HURIWA asked Buhari and Uzodinma to hold themselves and the governments they sit on top as heads of the Executive arms responsible for abysmally failing the people, by not proactively uncovering the existence of the illegal crude oil bunkering site, or for covering up the criminal enterprise but have now engaged in ‘channel noise’ since the fire engulfed the venue of the illegality in Imo State.

At least 100 persons were feared dead as fire razed an illegal crude oil refining site at Abaezi forest, in Ohaji-Egbema council area of Imo State in the early hours of Sunday while about 150 others sustained serious degrees of burns.

Uzodimma, represented by the state Commissioner for Petroleum Resources, Goodluck Opiah, had during a visit to the scene of the ugly event, expressed shock over the incident and condemned the illegal activity leading to the deaths.
