“We need to preach peace and love because this problem of lack of love among us is tearing the state apart, we must love ourselves, so that we can continue to protect each other from external aggression”.
Adding, the spirit of unity love and understanding of each other had disappear the hallmark of hatred recorded in the recent past continue to develop deep inside us and leading to killings of one another.
“We appeal to the media to discourage the spirit of reporting event capable of destroying our togetherness and calling on security agencies to bring the situation under control so that wanton destruction of human lives and properties should be stopped.”
Barry called on security operatives to bring those perpetrators of Irigwe/Berom communal clashes an end.
