The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused Southeast governors of trying to use the Igbo people as a sacrificial lamb for their quest for power.
According to Kanu in a statement through IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, even the northerners who the governors are trying to impress understands clearly the handwriting on the wall.
The IPOB leaders reiterate that the Southeast would actualize Biafra and will not allow the people of the region to be used by the leaders who are ready to sacrifice people and anything for their personal gains.
The statement signed by Powerful reads: “How can South-East governors be so desperate for power beyond 2023 that they can sacrifice anything and anybody for personal gains? In case they don’t know, even the Northerners they are trying to impress understand the handwriting on the wall. They know that the governors are on their own.
“These South East Vassals should know that during the referendum, they only have one vote just like the man on the street.
“If these frustrated politicians without conscience and direction are discerning enough, they should know that they should first push for a referendum to determine if the people they pretend to be speaking for actually have their support. No matter their pretences, our people are tired of One Nigeria. They have since opted for Biafra, and there is no going back on this irrevocable resolve!”
Meanwhile, Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has given a marching order for the police to fish out and dislodge all ‘unknown gunmen’ from the state.
Naija News reports that the Governor issued the directive on Monday during the handing over of 50 patrol vehicles and 200 motorcycles to security agencies to boost the fight against insecurity in the state.
