IPOB And Ohanaeze Disagree Over Biafra
The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) has vowed to attack the leaders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo during its summit scheduled for May 12 which is planned to hold in Awka.
A statement by the media and publicity secretary of the group, Mr. Emma Powerful as obtained by Naija News, accused Chief John Nnia Nwodo and his leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo of trying to jettison the agitation and referendum towards the actualization of Biafra republic.
Recall that IPOB had months back warned that it won’t support any idea that doesn’t include discussions on the referendum targeted at actualizing Biafra republic.
“IPOB had since warned Nwodo and his collaborators in Ohanaeze not to bring their ‘one Nigeria’ summit to the heartland of Biafra but they remain adamant. The only way this summit can hold is unless the heaven falls on May 21.
“It seems Nwodo and his Ohanaeze Ndigbo do not understand the language of liberty, we shall meet them head-on in Awka on May 21 at Ekwueme Square. They better bring enough squadron of their Fulani soldier friends as always to provide them protection and kill us all because the summit will not hold.
“We are urging all IPOB families to mobilise to storm not just Ekwueme Square but to saturate the whole of Anambra State and Awka from all directions on May 21, 2018. Awka will be occupied from midnight of May 20 to 5p.m. on the 21.
“We look forward to meeting Nnia Nwodo and his Fulani soldiers in Awka on the 21st of May 2018. They better come prepared.”
