The Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has sent out a strongly worded message of warning to Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, the apex socio cultural organization of Igbo nation against gathering anywhere in the zone to discuss anything about restructuring insisting that it is Biafra referendum or nothing else.
According to the group anyday those it described as so called Igbo leaders flouted this warning and gather for any discussion on restructuring they would be treated like outcasts in Biafra land.
Making the feeling of IPOB public in a statement issued by Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful IPOB said it was unfortunate that a few individuals, who arrogate the title of elders and leaders to themselves cannot point to any legacy they built or are building for the coming generation except alleged betrayal, treachery, back stabbing and lust for power.
He said : anyday these so called leaders gather in public, we will make sure we show them how upset we are. The era of selling the collective interest of the people to the highest bidder is gone. All we want is referendum, not restructuring, we want Biafra not Nigeria.
Continuing he added ” We have buried many people and lost many souls, we are pained by innocent people who are still languishing in detention all over Nigeria and we are enraged by the betrayal of the so called of the socio political leaders.
The publicity Secretary said IPOB read with anger statement credited to Ohanaeze regarding what happened at an event that took place at the Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA), Enugu.
In the words of powerful “what happened at the said event would be nothing compared to what will become of Ohanaeze should they attempt to convene any public meeting anywhere in Biafra land to discuss restructuring or how to keep Nigeria one,”
