A former President-General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo has been accused by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to be behind the security challenges ravaging the South-East.
Naija News reports that the group’s Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful made this known in a statement on Wednesday where he alleged that Nwodo hobnobbed with the northern oligarchy.
Emma accused Nwodo of bringing terrorists masquerading as herdsmen into the region during his regime as Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s President-General, saying the motive came due to his governorship ambition.
He further maintained that Nwodo’s evil romance with those terrorizing the South East stems from the desperation to prove to his Fulani masters that he is a willing tool, hence his reign notably heralded the influx of killer herdsmen into the region.
The statement partly reads, “We, the global movement and family of IPOB, under the leadership and command of the indefatigable Liberator, Nnamdi Kanu, wish to state unequivocally that the security architecture of the South-East region was destroyed during the regime of the former President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo.
“IPOB and Biafrans must understand that Nnia Nwodo of Enugu State was among those who brought terrorists masquerading as herdsmen into our region during his regime as Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s President-General. He did this to placate the Caliphate, because he was nursing the idea of becoming Governor of Enugu State.
“In desperation to prove to his Fulani masters that he is a willing tool and a useful idiot, Nnia Nwodo publicly boasted that he will fight IPOB struggle and will do anything to sabotage Biafra Independence (this statement went viral).”
