Veteran nollywood actress, Rita Edochie has slammed the Imo state government for allowing students to take exams in school despite the IPOB sit-at-home order.
The popular actress Rita Edochie posits this while reacting to the viral video of the students of the Comprehensive Secondary School in Nkume, Njaba Local Government Area of Imo state, running helter-skelter for their lives during the attackwhile preparing to sit for English in the ongoing WASSCE on Monday, September 13.
However IPOB had initially declared Monday as sit-at-home day to show solidarity with its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is facing charges bordering on treason and others before an Abuja High Court.
It is alleged that the unknown gunmen attacked the students and their teachers for flouting the sit-at-home order of the IPOB members..
Rita Edochie posted a video of the students running during the attack on her Instagram page today which she captioned;
”IT’S NOT JUST TO ASK PEOPLE TO GO ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS .
NOW LOOK AT THESE CHILDREN YOU ASKED TO COME OUT FOR EXAMS RUNNING OUT OF THEIR SCHOOL.
WAS THERE ANY SECURITY TO SECURE THESE CHILDREN ?
NOW IF ANYTHING HAD HAPPENED TO ANY OF THEM, THE SAME PEOPLE WILL ONLY SAY SORRY TO THEIR FAMILY.
IN FACT I BLAME THE PARENTS THAT ALLOWED THEIR CHILDREN TO GO THROUGH THIS.”
