By Nnamdi Ojiego

Human right activist and former Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of the National Centre for Women Development, Onyeka Onwenu, yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the Nigerian troops deployed in south east and dialogue with secessionist agitators in the region. 

The request was as a result of outcry over alleged extrajudicial killings of Igbo youths by the security operatives.

Onwenu who spoke at a press conference organized by the Credible Igbo Women Initiative, CIWI, in Lagos, expressed concerns over the wanton killings in Igboland.
