Uzodinma Behind Murder Of Imo Monarch – IPOB Alleges



IPOB Accuse Uzodinma, APC Of Killing Igbos In Imo State

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo of being responsible for the murder of a popular monarch in the state.

Naija News reports that the traditional ruler of Atta kingdom in the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State, Edwin Azike, was murdered by unknown gunmen.

The monarch was abducted from his palace on Thursday and his lifeless body was dropped in the market square where villagers discovered it last Friday morning.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB asked Imo people to hold the governor responsible for the gruesome murder of the monarch.

The outlawed group said Uzodinma allegedly killed the monarch after he had threatened to act against any traditional ruler who failed to obey his directives.

IPOB, however, condemned the murder of the monarch by unknown gunmen and dissociated itself from the killings happening in the state.

The statement reads: “The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu strongly condemns the gruesome murder of the traditional ruler of Njaba by unknown and fake gunmen created by evil politicians in Imo State.

“We hope that the Supreme Administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, is enjoying the handiwork of the monsters he incubated and nourished in his desperation to demonise IPOB and ESN (Eastern Security Network)?

“Things are going wrong in Imo State because of threats Hope Uzodinma gave all traditional rulers and stakeholders in the state. He had threatened that any of them who did not do his bidding would have himself to blame, and today his threats have become real.

“Where are the elders in Igbo State? Where are the religious leaders? Why is Imo becoming another burning hell under the watch of Hope Uzodinma? Will the elders keep quiet until Hope and his nurtured monsters eliminate everybody?

“Hope’s wife should call his husband to order. History shall one day judge them for the atrocities being perpetrated under their watch in Imo State. Is it not time the people of Imo rise against the evil works of the Supreme Court Administrator? If Dee Sam Mbakwe had ruled old Imo State like this, Uzodinma wouldn’t have been alive to bring harm to the people of Imo State.”
