Adamu Garba, a former presidential candidate has asserted that there is no difference between the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists and the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Naija News understands that the All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain stated this in a post on his verified Twitter account on Friday (today).
According to Garba, IPOB is the biggest threat to the Southeastern states just the same way Boko Haram has become a threat to the Northern region of the country.
He further asserts that many Igbos understood these and that was why they do not take seriously the secessionists.
See Garba’s assertion in the tweet below:
As Boko Haram becomes the biggest enemy of the North & Northern interest, so is IPOB the biggest enemy of the South East & South-Eastern interests.
The real great 99.9% Igbo people know this, that's why they take IPOB as a joke.
Don't know some Twitter goons deceive you here.
