The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned former militant leader, Asari Dokubo to stop his frequent outbursts against the group and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB in a statement by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Wonderful submitted that Dokubo is not an Igbo man nor does he understand the Biafra agitation.
The group, therefore, told him to stop portraying himself as such, warning that if any harm comes the way of any of its members, then Dokubo will realize the capability of IPOB.
Naija News reports the IPOB statement comes after earlier submissions by Dokubo in which he first tackled IPOB for harming the southeast region with the constant sit-at-home declarations.
He also urged the federal government of Nigeria to disregard appeals from some Igbo leaders pushing for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
But in response, IPOB cautioned him against threatening members of the group while also accusing Dokubo of being sponsored by Aso Rock and some politicians from the southeast region.
The statement read;
“We wish to put the whole world on notice particularly the Izon people, of the unguarded and nonsense statements coming out from Asari Dokubo against the people of IPOB and our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because when it will start nobody will blame.
“Dokubo numerated how he sabotaged and planned how our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU was abducted and extraordinarily renditioned from Kenya to Nigeria.
“He should equally remember that IPOB never declared war against him since he started his nonsense statements against IPOB and Nnamdi KANU. We don’t want to be distracted or join issues with you.
“But we want to make it categorically clear to you that if any IPOB member both in the hinterland and coastal region of Biafra dies as a result of your threat you will understand what IPOB is capable of doing.
“Again, we want you to withdraw this your empty threat and stop exposing your historical shortcomings and ignorance by dabling into a century that you have completely no idea about.
“You are not an Igbo and have no link with Igbo people. Igbo don’t need Asari to live their lives. Asari should know that he doesn’t and can never love Igbo people more than Nnamdi KANU and IPOB movement.
“Asari Dokubo should know that his sabotaging the Biafran struggle will not stop us from getting Biafra freedom. Your grouse with Nnamdi Kanu was because you were more interested in becoming the President of Biafra, and he told you to wait first until Biafra comes. You turned against him and Biafra freedom because you hate truth.
“Asari is thinking that his criminal gangs sponsored by Aso Rock and some politicians in the region will kill IPOB members and blame it on Igbo people. We know whom he is and he will soon regret his actions against a just cause.”
