Veteran actress, Rita Edochie has blamed the Imo state government for allowing students to take exams in school despite the IPOB sit-at-home order.
The actress said 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 after they were attacked while preparing to sit for English in the ongoing JSSCE on Monday, September 13.
It is alleged that the ESN members attacked the students and their teachers for flouting the sit-at-home order of the IPOB members. Read here.
Edochie posted a video of the students running during the attack on her Instagram page today and wrote;
”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.”
