The popular Igbo group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has recently claimed that the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano has vindicated them by revealing that some of the South- East Governors are the ones sponsoring the constant attack and insecurity in the South- East.
This was revealed through a statement made by the group spokesperson, Emma Powerful.
According to Mr. Emma, IPOB has been previously accused by many people including the Federal Government of instigating violence in the South- East.
Not only that they were painted as bad eggs, but also, they have termed them as terrorists because they only agitate for the sovereignty of Biafra land.
Recall that, Governor Obiano recently explained the reason why he refused to attend the meeting of the South- East Governor’ s Forum held in Enugu on Thursday.
According to the governor who spoke through his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Chief Ifeatu Obiokoye, he said that he can’ t stoop so low to discuss security matters with some of his colleagues who are behind the attacks in his state
” We are the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the able leadership of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We have always distanced ourselves from the senseless killings in Biafra land especially in Anambra and the Imo States but some gullible fellows do not want to believe us.
Now we have been vindicated by the recent confession by Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on why he did not attend the meeting of South- East governors in Enugu.
The governor said without equivocations that he deliberately stayed away from the meeting because he didn’ t consider it proper to sit at the table and discuss security with those who are sponsoring the insecurity and killings in his state.
Now, our question to all those still pointing accusing fingers at IPOB and Eastern Security Network ESN operatives for the killings in Anambra is; how many of the South- East Governors are IPOB members? Since according to Governor Obiano, the killings are being sponsored by some persons expected in the meeting for political reasons, how many of the attendees are IPOB members? Can the same people who find it hard to believe our explanations now believe us if we say that all South- East governors except Obiano are our members and sponsors, ” Mr. Emma said.
