The 2019 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, has demanded constitution of a panel of inquiry into the recent killings in Emene, Enugu State.

A clash between the Department of States Services (DSS) and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) a week ago left some persons dead.

Though DSS confirmed that the body lost two operatives, IPOB claimed to have lost 21 members.

Obi who is also a former Anambra State Governor in his Twitter handle condemned “The recent killing of unarmed youths in Enugu is condemnable, just as the recent killing of Nigerians in any part of the country.

“I join well-meaning Nigerians in calling for a panel of inquiry to be set up to unravel the circumstances surrounding the killing to avoid such recklessness in the future,” he tweeted on Saturday.
