‘South-East governors, Ndigbo leaders have stabbed us in the back’ – IPOB

The group known as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned governors of the South-East region and apex Igbo group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, to not represent them in the proposed meeting with the Federal Government.

IPOB insists that the governors and Igbo leaders do not speak their minds neither do they share their agenda nor feel their pains.

The group says dialogue can only be pursued with the government, after the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has been facilitated.

A spokesperson for IPOB, Emma Powerful, released a statement on Thursday, saying that Igbo leaders have consistently disappointed them and repeatedly traded their cause for monetary gains.

“If the South East governors and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo are serious, they should be talking about getting unconditional release of the Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, who is still  incarcerated for the past one month, that should be the starting point.”

“How can the South East governors, whom we elected but stabbed us at the back, calling us all sorts of unprintable names with the enemies of Biafra and South East in general, and the people who call themselves Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a group that is in shambles, that has not taken Ndigbo forward after the leadership of Eze Ozobu and Nwabueze, be talking for us?”

“The governors and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo that is in disarray and some disgruntled traditional rulers, whom we know for working for any government in power, and soliciting for and receiving contracts from governments, joined the enemies of Ndigbo,who betrayed us during the Nigerian Biafran Civil War, to call us name.”

“And now they claim they want to go and negotiate for us, to collect money and contracts as usual, to sell us out like they have always done, when they have not even called us to a meeting to find out our grievances.

“We are rejecting the South East governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo and whatever proposals they are making with Nigerian Federal Government. They are not representing us, but themselves.

We, the IPOB members warn them to stop discussing IPOB because they are not representing us, they have roundly and consistently disappointed us, Ndigbo and Biafrans as a whole.

“We can only listen and support them if they are talking about unconditional release for Mr. Kanu and not to stop worldwide Biafra actualization agitation and peaceful protests, we will not stop until our leader is released unconditionally.”
