Joe Igbokwe, an aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos Province, has urged southeast governors, lawmakers and Ohanaeze Ndigbo to checkmate the excesses of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Igbokwe gave the telephone spell condemning the October 1 sit-at-home order by IPOB and the removal of Nigerian flags from the southeast.
He pointed out that IPOB’s choice to take Nigeria’s flag from the southeast was an affront to the corporate existence of the country.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, stated this in a post on his Facebook page entitled: “A telephone for peace, tranquility and sanity in Igboland as Nigeria clocks 61.”
According to Igbokwe: “IPOB’s threat to onrush the Nigerian Flag on Oct 1st, 2021 in the southeast should not be treated with Kids gloves. The sit-at-home tell on that special daytime, and independence daytime is an affront to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This is an onrush on the corporate existence of Nigeria as a political entity and no Country large or little will take this threat lightly.
“ACTIONS CARRY CONSEQUENCES!!! The Due south East Governors, Senators, HORs, Due south East Province Assemblies, the Speakers, Ohaneze Leadership, First of all Grade Traditional Rulers, the Egg Heads, Academy Teachers, Business Tycoons, Intelligentsia, Marketplace leaders, prominent politicians etc should ascent upwards to check IPOB excesses in Igboland.
“Our people are relocating out of Due south East to Delta Province and some other States for fright of attacks and assaults by heartless IPOB bandits. They have killed policemen, attacked police force formations, burnt police force patrol vans, killed soldiers, killed priests, they have killed our people, looted their shops and countless atrocities which time and space will not permit me to bring up hither.
“Those who are pushing for this brigandage in the Due south East are the lowest of the low in Igboland. They do not stand for the thinking and aspirations of the vibrant SE citizens. I repeat that an onrush on Nigeria’s Flag is an onrush on Nigeria.”
