Our attention has just been drawn to the idiotic diatribes and a highly irresponsible statement credited to the Lagos based political loafer and jobber Mr. JOE IGBOKWE who purportedly alleged that the HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA) spread false information on the purported killing of ten students of the Abia State University Uturu and his jaundiced calling on security forces to investigate us because in his warped imagination and in his sick mind the HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA) works with those he identified as terrorists in the South East of Nigeria. Joe Igbokwe who wept over the red carpets reception that President Muhammadu Buhari gave to the new convert into the All Progressives Congress Femi Fani Kayode and bemoaned the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has denied him of similar cosy attention and invitation even when he is a slave of All Progressives Congress, decided to accuse HURIWA of accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of killing Eastern Security Network. HURIWA could not have responded to this idle politician whose job is to clear Lagos gutters and canals but instead spends all his time on Facebook to spread politically motivated witch-hunt campaign and using GUTTER LANGUAGE against a patriotic and peace loving group like ours but we decided to put the records straight not because we are scared of investigation by the security forces but because we think that if we do not put the records straight the good people of Nigeria may be deceived to believe those half truths and fake information about HURIWA by a man who desperately want President Muhammadu Buhari to invite him to the VILLA TO COME AND CHOP.
HURIWA does not work with any group because we are independent and we believe in the sanctity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and some of our members actually voted APC even as others like the National Coordinator do not subscribe to any political affiliation.
We respect the Nigerian President and we are law abiding but we are CONSTRUCTIVE AND POSITIVE CRITICS OF BAD GOVERNMENT SO WE CRITICISE BAD POLICIES OF THE ADMINISTRATION INCLUDING HIS ONE SIDED ATTACKS AGAINST THE PROSCRIBED INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA AND THE EASTERN SECURITY NETWORK but WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IPOB OR ESN. HURIWA DOES NOT CONDOBE THE USE OF EXTRALEGAL KILLINGS EVEN AGAJNST BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS.
The story about the attacks purportedly at the Abia state University which was later confirmed to be at the Marist Comprehensive Academy Uturu which are geographical neighbours was first picked up by the media and the HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA reacted based on media reports from credible media outlets including Daily Post.
If this lazy and dull, mischievous Joe Igbokwe had done little research he would have seen that HURIWA DID NOT ORIGINATE THE STORY OF THE ATTACK ON ABSU WHICH LATER TURNED OUT TO BE MARIST AND NOT ABSU so he is wrong to accuse HURIWA of spreading fake news. JOE IGBOKWE IS FAKE NEWS FOR ACCUSING HURIWA OF THINGS WE HAVE NO CONNECTIONS TO. JOE IGBOKWE SHOULD LOBBY TO BE INVITED FOR LUNCH IN ASO-ROCK BUT HE SHOULD NOT USE HURIWA AS HIS MEAL TICKET TO SEE BUHARI. He should heal himself of his diarrhoea of the mouth and get busy doing profitable politics instead of his MOTOR PARK STYLE OF POLITICS. JOE IGBOKWE GO CLEAN UP LAGOS GUTTERS.
