Authorities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has described weekend’s meeting of Ohanaeze Ndigbo held in Owerri, the Imo state capital as a mere jamboree and insignificant.
IPOB alleged that the meeting convened by Governor Rochas Okorocha, was stage-managed by his political masters in Aso Rock, Abuja, for the purpose of finding a lasting solution to the agitation for Biafra by nailing the remaining IPOB members and other agitators.
In a press statement issued yesterday in Onitsha, Anambra state, by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB said it wondered why stooges to those in Abuja would come out to be deceiving our people by calling them out on such an insignificant meeting to discuss their secret agenda.
Powerful said Ipob worldwide under Nnamdi Kanu is worried that those elders and some governors who attended the Meeting convened by Okorocha who they alleged destroyed the South-East governors forum, because of his selfish interest, would call a meeting in Owerri instead of Enugu which is the headquarters of the old Eastern region and they attended.
IPOB recalled that Okorocha had boycotted meetings of South East Governors’ Forum in Enugu each time it was convened, yet Igbo elders, traditional rulers and some Eastern states governors who attended the meeting in Owerri could not ask questions on why the meeting should be held in Owerri, instead of Enugu.
