Biafra: IPOB, ESN threatening my life – Joe Igbokwe writes IGP, Igbo govs, others

Joe Igbokwe, an aide to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has alleged a threat to his life by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Igbokwe alleged that IPOB was threatening his life because he is against the philosophy of the group and the Eastern Security Network, ESN.

In an open letter, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo chieftain described ESN as bandits bullying, threatening, killing, and destroying people of the Southeast.

Igbokwe addressed the letter to the Inspector General of Police, Anambra Police Commissioner, Commander of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, Igbo governors, House of Representatives members, and other stakeholders in the Southeast.

The letter reads partly: “A mother chicken says she is crying out to the world that a Kite stole her chick not because she can do anything to retrieve the stolen sibling but to let the world hear her voice. I am sure most of us would have seen the continuous threat to my life and the life of those of us who do not agree with the philosophy of IPOB and ESN bandits on Biafra agitation via armed struggle.

“Today they are getting bolder, threatening, bullying, killing, destroying and decimating the economy of Igboland. Today the bandits say they have power over life and death in Igboland. The bandits and Children of hate say they have banned me from coming to Igboland. The latest threat is that I should prepare to die. This is unacceptable in the 21st Century.

“Blind people should not lead people with eyes. People we do not know their upbringing, their pedigree, what they do for a living, who their fathers and their mothers we do not know are telling us they are the owners of Igboland. We cannot take this anymore. We will confront history. I will not allow Soap to enter my eyes when I have buckets of water with me. You do not tell the deaf and the dumb that war has started. When he sees others running he will join them.”

Recall that a self-acclaimed disciple of IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa, had warned that Igbokwe should be ready to die because Kanu will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We Are Sick And Tired Of Your Sit-At-Home Orders – Ohanaeze

We Are Sick And Tired Of Your Sit-At-Home Orders – Ohanaeze

Pan Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has asked the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to desist from imposing sit-at-home orders in the southeast geopolitical region henceforth.

IPOB has issued and enforced these sit-at-home orders in protest of the continued incarceration of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who was re-arrested and jailed in June.

On Wednesday, IPOB threatened to impose a month-long sit-at-home in the southeast, as opposed to the current format of every Monday each week, if Kanu is not brought to court on his next trial date of October 21.

However, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide is of the view that IPOB would be better off asking members to storm Abuja, the nation’s capital city, in protest, instead of further paralyzing the economy of the southeast with endless sit-at-home orders.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide are committed to providing a political solution for the release of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from custody,” a statement from Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, reads.

“The exponents of sit-at-home should be cautious of the regaining consciousness of Ndigbo to defy further directives, as the best approach before the IPOB leadership is to mobilise the disciples of Nnamdi Kanu in millions to take advantage of the October 21st court trial and massively take over the streets of Abuja peacefully without confrontation with security agencies, so that the international community will handle the matter and convince the federal government to do the needful.

“If 60 million IPOB members as acclaimed by the leadership can storm Abuja, they will be forced to produce Nnamdi Kanu before the Abuja High Court as southeast sit-at-home is fading away.

“IPOB will gradually lose Igbo support if they continue to make things difficult for Ndigbo, especially with the continuous denial of not being accountable for the various scandals and crimes committed against humanity by the so-called cultists, who disguise under the sit-at-home orders to perpetrate evil.”

Kanu’s troubles with the Nigerian government began when he was arrested by the DSS in 2015. He spent two years in custody until he was granted bail on health grounds in April 2017.

He subsequently fled the country in 2017.

The separatist faces charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.

IPOB’s unending sit-at-home directives have further heightened tensions in the southeast region.

Stakeholders had expressed reservations over INEC’s plan to import electoral materials from Owerri for the simple reason that the chairman of the All Progressives Congress National Campaign Council for the election is Governor Hope Uzodinma.

In response, the REC said, “You know that the Anambra State INEC office was attacked on May 23rd and that led to the destruction of our store. Since that incident, we had to fall back on the INEC zonal store.
