The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has once again been strict for the leadership of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOP, accusing the group of quickly slipping into a terrorist organization.
The Nageria newspaper report that This was part of a press conference given by the OYC Secretary General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, on Monday in Enugu, where he also warned about the activities of some fifth columnists who, according to him, were personifying the group. He challenged the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to return home and fight if he was a freedom fighter.
His alarm came in the middle of a report in which the OYC Vice President, Mazi Obinna Achuonye, was cited for accusing former Senate Vice President Ike Ekweremadu of speaking with the IPOB leader to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari. The acronym has come out to deny the statement, insisting that he never made such accusations.
He told The Nageria newspaperT over the phone that “I was surprised when someone caught my attention.” I can’t understand why someone will distribute something like that with my name and distribute it to the media without my authorization. ”
He promised to get to the root of the matter, stating that “Ekweremadu has been a distinguished Igbo son, and I can’t imagine doing anything to belittle him.”
Similarly, Okwu at a press conference warned that if the IPOB did not retrace their steps, the Young Ohanaeze would match them. “Senator Ike Ekweremadu is an Igbo leader; Ndigbo, it is not in our culture to insult our leaders.
“Then, the Ohanaeze Youth Council will continue to condemn the attack against Ikea. Nnamdi Kanu should know that he has gone beyond what he is supposed to do. This is no more extended agitation of Biafra, and we believe that the end of his game is here.
“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council is firmly behind Ikeoha, and that is why when he came back, we mobilized all the young people to show the world that the true young Igbo are in Nigeria here fighting against the Igbo course, not against Germany.
“We are surprised that someone who said he is a freedom fighter, escaped and went abroad. When Kwame Nkrumah was fighting for independence, he was in Ghana, when Nelson Mandela was struggling, he was in South Africa. He was arrested more than twice. When Zik was detained for the independence of Nigeria, he was here.
“So, we believe he is a businessman who is spinning, negotiating how to attack people, collecting money from the enemies of Ndigbo to attack our best 11.
“When you say that you are attacking our senators and governors, you are striking our best 11, and any other attack against any Igbo leader would be resisted. Enough is enough of IPOB. ”
On the claims that Ekweremadu had a previous collaboration with the IPOB leader against Buhari, Okwu said it was about lies of faceless people.
“Someone used our name to make publications against our leader, and we completely deny it. Never happened; We can never say that. Ikea cannot fight a country where he has been vice president of the Senate for several years; For what purpose it will overthrow the government? Are you trying to defeat? Because if Buhari is overthrown, everyone will go too, he will stop being a senator.
“In that sense, we want to tell Chima Obieze to concentrate on his work as a legislator in the Chamber of the Enugu State Assembly and stay away from the youth of Ohanaeze. He is part of that confusion because his actions and inactions are giving rise to some of these faceless criticisms.
“A wrong Oga from the state of Abia also claimed that the attack was administered in stages. You saw that international shame, you saw it running, and you say it was handled on stage; That person is out of his mind.
“Having said that, I want to end up telling Nnamdi Kanu that if he said he is too strong to launch that attack again, let him step on Igbo’s floor and try, we would tell him that he lacks the ability, only a small strike against him escaped and he was telling people about his dog that was killed, is that the person you call a freedom fighter?
