The spate of dwarfs in Aguleri community, Anambra East Local Government Area, Anambra State, is now a source of worry to the President General, PG, Chief Hibo Onwuegbuke.
The development has prompted him to warn their youths, especially the females, to stop mingling with non indigenes who he said were responsible for impregnating their daughters to give birth to dwarfs.
The PG said, “In the last prayer we had, I cautioned them to be careful how they mingle with these native foreigners; though they are Nigerians, you need to be careful.
“Like this time some people are having dwarfs while in the history of their lineage they have not seen dwarfs.
It is an abomination and you can not
throw them away, they are human beings, they have right to life,” he stated.
Chief Hipo who also condemned hard drug addiction by the youths,
especially methamphetamine (Mkpulummili), stated Wednesday that efforts were being intensified to stop the
“We are doing our best to stop the consumption and I can tell you some of our people are even involved in mkpulumili because of the financial benefit.
They are mostly farmers, they will tell you to bring it because they know
how to smuggle these things.
“I have given my people hope that tomorrow will be better, hope that we are going to the right direction, like now
if you want to come out, for any elective position you have to be screened, you should be articulate on issues. You should be somebody that has sense, not
being educated only.
“Through me our people have opened an account in the bank, unlike before, because I told them that it is no longer business as usual, that’s why we are going higher to the next level.
