Killing Of 4 UNIPORT Students: These Four Must Get Justice... Obiageli Ezekwesili

Former Vice-President of the World Bank Group for Africa, Obiageli Ezekwesili, who served as Federal Minister of Solid Minerals and then as Federal Minister of Education during the second term presidency of Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed her strong disapproval over the recent  killing of students in Mubi and Port Harcourt in the past week. 
Read her press statement below:
I am shaken; I am outraged, I am devastated, I feel mortally wounded. The situations in Mubi and Port Harcourt were terrible. Did you see the video-recording of how students were killed in Port Harcourt? Is this not the same country where it is emotionally difficult when you see a corpse on the street?
I am sorry; I am totally outraged like any decent citizen of a nation that we love. The killings were barbaric, mere savagery and very devastating. Some people are acting or behaving as if there are no people in charge of the government. "Something is fundamentally wrong with our society: To see the dastardly mob killing of four misguided youths(Port Harcourt's) who stole sank my optimism. Noo! Even in death, these four must get justice. My voice shall be heard on this. What have we become? Please click to continue.
"We used to be better than this. What has psychologically traumatized our people? There is a fundamental problem; there is a breakdown in something that is proudly Nigeria. I cannot believe that our society has got to this level. We are broken, we need to be mended and nobody will mend it other than ourselves
We are getting to the precipice and we need to pull ourselves back. The government has to take full responsibility; it has to be in charge to prevent anarchy. The only way out is for the government to prove that it is really in charge.
We are a nation of 150million people; we are not a small country. If the situation continues like this, we cannot survive a large-scale conflict. It does not do us good to befell into a nation of conflagration.
We have to watch it. A lot of countries that have had genocidal experience started like this.
We have too many problems to descend into a state of anarchy again. How can we all sit and watch impunity.
