he apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has asked the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to tender a public apology and ask for forgiveness from Ndigbo for their mistakes which have destroyed the economic and social activities in the southeast.
To solidarize with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB had declared sit-at-home on Mondays and other days of trial on a treason charge brought against him by the Federal Government.
Ohanaeze called on agitators of Biafra residing abroad to relocate to Nigeria to physically lead the struggle.
IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, can no longer be hiding in places around the world while directing Igbo youths to destroy their land
The group, which represents all Igbo communities within and outside Nigeria, warned the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, that the era of Biafra agitators hiding in Europe, America, or Asia is over.
In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group said that the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, can no longer be hiding in places around the world while directing Igbo youths to destroy their land.
Ohanaeze maintained that it is an act of cowardice for them to hide in their comfort zone in Europe and America to lead Biafra agitation.
According to the group, “We warn that the era of Biafra agitators, residing in Europe, Asia and America giving directives to Igbos have ended.
“They should relocate to Nigeria to physically lead the struggle, as it’s an act of cowardice to hide in your comfort zone in Europe, and America to lead Biafra agitation.”
The apex Igbo socio-cultural group also called on Governors in the South East of the country to search for lasting solutions to the ongoing weekly sit-at-home in the region.
“It was time for the Governors to swing into action since they now blamed some yet to be identified criminals for hijacking the exercise,” Ohanaeze asserted.
No Igbo Governor or Senator deserves to seek for election in 2023 if they lacked the balls to stamp out the disgraceful activities that have ridiculed southeastern Nigerians
