Biafra Updates: ‘You Are The Obvious Disgrace To Ndigbo’ – IPOB Replies Rochas Okorocha

The Indigenous Peoples of Bi­afra (IPOB), has told Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State that “he is the one that is a big disgrace to Ndigbo”.

IPOB was reacting to a state­ment credited to Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam On­wuemedo in which he described IPOB as
“a disgrace to Ndigbo” for allegedly attempting to disrupt Okorocha’s speech presentation at the Chatham House, London on Wednesday.

Onwuemeodo, had also told IPOB that it would be “unrea­sonable” for the pro-Biafra group “to think Okorocha can be one of them”.

According to him, the inva­sion of the venue by IPOB to dis­rupt the Governor’s speech has discredited the group’s true claim of agitating for a true Igbo na­tion, maintaining that his refus­al to support their agitation has caused the attack on him.

But in a swift reaction, IPOB lambasted Okorocha for what it called his anti-Biafra activities and utterances, warning him to “guard his utterances about Bia­fra to avoid regrets”.

IPOB also told Okorocha to stop parading himself as Igbo leader, saying that he lacks the capacity, confidence, and the antecedents to speak for Ndigbo “when Imo State under his watch has become a laughing stock”.

IPOB Media and Publicity Officer who spoke on phone with The AUTHORITY on Saturday, said “ “Okorocha is a total disgrace to Ndigbo home and abroad”, adding that he deceived the people of Imo by pretending to be a voice for the masses only to gain power and manifest his true colour.

Powerful said that the treat­ment meted to Okorocha in Lon­don was a warning to other Gov­ernors in the south east states who are sabotaging the efforts to actu­alise Biafran independence.

“What Okorocha saw in Lon­don is a warning to his colleagues who are working against Biafra interest. Similar treatments await them until they stop cooperating with our oppressors.

“Wherever they travel, IPOB will visit them in that country un­til they begin to condemn the kill­ing of their brothers by the Fed­eral Government and the security agencies.

“What happened to Okorocha will be a child’s play. We want to prove to them that we are high­ly committed towards the restoration of Biafra”, he said.

He further said that there is no going back on the agitation for Biafra despite the efforts of “some highly placed selfish politicians” in connivance with their feder­al collaborators to frustrate the struggle.

He, however, restated that the group is totally committed to its non- violent stance in the strug­gle for independence.
