On Friday, Ohanaeze Ndigbo stated that Nigeria may be destroyed if anything bad or harmful happens to the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo made this statement a few hours after IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful alleged that the life of Nnamdi Kanu is under big threat.
In a reaction to the statement released by IPOB, Ohanaeze Ndigbo warned the DSS and other agencies of the federal government against taking steps that may lead to the breakdown of law in Nigeria through the assassination of Nnamdi Kanu.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo’ s s statement reads in part ” The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has commended President Buhari for initiating a dialogue with neutral Igbo leaders led by Pa Mbazulike Amaechi without any South- East politicians’ usual manipulative infusions. ”
” Igbo politicians are the major problem in the South- East. The process for the release of Nnamdi Kanu has begun with the closed- door meeting of Buhari and Igbo leaders held today (Friday) at Abuja, we hope that FG will be sincere enough to keep their side of the bargain. ”
” FG shouldn’ t be listening to the deceitful tales of the southeast politicians. IPOB should channel its antagonism on the Southeast politicians that have squandered the people’ s resources from 1999 to date, IPOB should conduct forensic scrutiny on the financial recklessness of former southeast governors, former federal lawmakers, and others who have received allocation and constituency funds since 1999 to date. ”
” If IPOB tackles southeast politicians, they will sit up and render their stewardship to the people, we must hold our leaders accountable, as they constitute the major problem in the southeast, Ipob should face southeast political leaders before tackling Buhari. ”
” Any attempt to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu will end up Nigeria and the Federal Government knows the consequences of hurting a British citizen in their custody, such stories of assassination attempts is a ruse and will likely lead to creating disaffection to the already sealed deal between FG and neutral Igbo leaders to subtle put procedures for the release of Nnamdi Kanu. ”
” All the southeast political leaders should face the consequences of their leadership failure in the South- East over the years. ”
” IPOB should query where there are no available hospitals, schools in the rural areas of the South- East, this is the new narrative to move and it will make southeast political leaders face developmental projects rather than siphoning the wealth of the people. “
