We will shield South East governors from external aggression by IPOB, says Ohanaeze
Following the attack on former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and threat to attack South-East governors by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Ohanaeze-Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC) yesterday said it would do everything possible to shield the South-East governors from external aggression.
In a statement in Abakaliki by its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the OYC said the attack on Ekweremadu and threat to attack South-East governors was being sponsored by politicians outside Igboland who want to smack the images of Igbo presidential hopeful ahead of 2023.
He called for immediate ceasefire between South-East governors and IPOB, noting that the Ndigbo can no longer afford to slaughter our collective image and integrity over threats and counter-threats being harvested from both quarters.
The statement read: “We have uncovered the real plot behind the recent harassment and threats of placing one million naira bounty on anyone who gives useful information about overseas travel itinerary of South-East governors as an evidence that they are being sponsored by politicians outside Igboland to discredit our leaders with millions of naira given to them to hack down South-East governors.
“How come they have millions of Nigerian currencies instead of Biafra pounds? We will do everything possible to shield South-East governors from external aggression being sponsored by politicians to hack down South-East presidential hopeful.
“Based on the intelligence report that there’s possibility of attacking South-East governors in Nigeria and abroad starting from next month, we have uncovered the selfish reasons for this unholy alliance between them. We alert all South-East governors to double their security settings and don’t fall into any trap of being provoked and distracted.”
From tackling the insecurity challenges emanating from the activities of suspected Fulani herdsmen. This is the finest hour for all genuine lovers of Igbo culture and values to stand up and defend their political leaders and urge IPOB to retract their steps and allow peace to thrive.”
