IPOB Knocks Abia Govt. For Claiming APGA Is Behind Pro-Biafra Protests



Biafra-protestersThe Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has expressed disappointment with the Abia State Government for attempting to drag the group into the politics of the state when it (IPOB) clearly does not have any vested interest in who becomes governor of the state after the Owerri division of the Federal Court of Appeal in Imo State nullified the election of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.

The Abia State Government through the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Bonnie Iwuoha had on Monday accused the opposition, All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, of masterminding the street protests by IPOB and Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, calling for the creation of a Biafran Republic.

But IPOB through its Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful, berated the Abia State Government and the Commissioner for trying to drag it into the political feud in the state when its major concern was securing the release of its leader and Radio Biafra Director, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, who has been in detention since last October.

“It is disappointing that Abia State Government and its Governor Ikpeazu, who was recently removed by the court as governor of the state, have done nothing to ensure the release of Mr. Kanu, an Abia State indigene, or spoken against the action of the Federal Government that has continued to detain Kanu even after two competent courts of jurisdiction had granted him bail, instead they are trying to make misguided statement against IPOB.

“The Abia State Government should bury its face in shame for doing nothing to ensure the release of a son of Abia State who is being persecuted for no justifiable reason, instead it is talking about APGA sponsoring us. The people that Iwuoha claim to be sponsoring us, are they not the people that told the soldiers to shoot in Onitsha.

“We do not want to join issues with Iwuoha and his governor because they will soon be unemployed, and they are looking for people to blame for their woes. IPOB has no business with any political party in the country because our concern is not Nigerian politics or state politics, our concern is the release of our leader and actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra.

“Involving us with any political party is an insult to us, we are warning that such association of IPOB with any political party in Nigeria should stop forth with, and the removed governor should face his case in court and should not blame IPOB for his woes”, he said.
