Counsel of the victims of the Immigration recruitment exercise, Emeka Ugwuonye, has said that the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro did not apologise to the real victims.
It could be recalled that Moro, at the weekend, apologised to Nigerians over the tragedy during a chat with news men in Abuja.
The counsel, in a statement issued via LEADERSHIP newspaper on-line, said “Moro never apologised to the real victims and they do not know the people he apologised to.
“It is clear from the so-called apology that Moro did not mean to apologise to anybody. Instead, he is interested in ingratiating himself and trying to look good despite all that happened”.
The statement said that the minister should accept responsibility and resign instead of justifying his stay in office.
“Whether my clients would accept Mr. Moro’s apology depends on whether there is an apology to accept. As at this moment, Mr. Moro has not issued an apology to them and there is thus nothing for them to accept. We have a case that is pending in court. Moro has received notice to appear in court and he understands that he should be in court on April 22, 2014 to explain himself”.
