Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has warned Igbo to be weary of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra because the outlawed group is working to instigate another civil war.
A statement by the Special Assistant of Media to the Rivers State Governor, Kelvin Ebiri, said Umahi spoke during a meeting of the South-East governors with the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo and the Igbo community in the state at Government House, Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Sunday.
Umahi, after listening to Governor Nyesom Wike’s narration of the atrocious activities of IPOB in Oyigbo that culminated in the imposition of curfew in the local government area, warned Igbo to be wary of IPOB as the group was “bent on instigating another civil war that will result in the murder of Igbo people.”
The governor said, “I find it nauseating that IPOB could go to Benue and Rivers states to foist its flag and claim the territories belong to the Igbo people. Igbo leadership are opposed to this stance by IPOB.”
