BIAFRA: IPOB Slams South East Governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo Over Kanu Release

     As the  struggle for the emancipation of the Biafran state lingers , with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB); Nnamdi Kanu, still confined in prison by the Federal Government, members of this group have issued a very serious warning to the South East Governors and Members of the Ohaneze Ndigbo concerning the release of their leader.

   According to a report by Vanguard,the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)  in a statement through one of its spokesmen, Comrade Emma Powerful, was said to have issued a stern warning to the governors and the Igbo cultural group, asking them to withhold any meeting they were planning to hold with the Federal  Government under the  guise of representing and speaking for it.

  The spokesman said: “If the South East governors and the Ohaneze Ndigbo are serious they should be talking about getting unconditional release for the Director of Radio Biafra Mr. Nnamdi Kanu who is still being incarcerated for the past one month now, that should be the starting point.

“How can the South East governors whom we elected but they turned back and stabbed us at the back calling us all sorts of unprintable names with the enemies of Biafra and South East in general, and the people who call themselves Ohaneze Ndigbo, a group that is in shambles, that has not taken Ndigbo forward after the leadership of Eze Ozobu and Nwabueze, be talking for us?

“The governors and members of the Ohaneze Ndigbo that is in disarray and some disgruntled traditional rulers whom we have known for working for any government in power, and soliciting for and receiving contracts from governments, joined the enemies of Ndigbo, who betrayed us during the Nigerian Biafran Civil War, to call us names, and now they claim they want to go and negotiate for us to collect money and contracts as usual to sell us out like they have always done, when they have not even called us to a meeting to find out our grievances.”

The IPOB rejected the governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo and the proposals being made to the Federal Government claiming that they are not representing the group but their selfish reasons .

Comrade Powerful in addition said: “We the IPOB members warn them to stop discussing IPOB because they are not representing us; they have roundly and consistently disappointed us, Ndigbo and Biafrans as a whole.”

The group said that it can only listen and support those going for any meeting with the Federal Government if they were talking about unconditional release for Kanu and instead of stopping what was described as “worldwide Biafra actualization agitation” and peaceful protest that had followed.

The spokesman vowed that the group will not stop until the leader was released unconditionally.
