The threat by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, to governors of the region following their opposition of his militia outfit named “Eastern Security Network” has been condemned by a Coalition of South-East groups.
The group also lauded southeast governors for their unity in denouncing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s actions, warning Ndigbo not to fall prey to the IPOB leaders’ antics.
Recall that Indigenous People of Biafra had threatened South-East governors not to work against the Eastern Security Network he created or be prepared to face dire consequences and asked local vigilantes in the region not to allow themselves to be used by the state governors.
However, the Coalition of Igbo Groups, reacting to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s threats, tasked the southeast region’s governors not to succumb to IPOB’s tricks, insisting that his activities were illegal to the law of the land and humanity.
The advice was contained in a statement signed by affiliates of the Coalition including, the Leader, Ndigbo Progressive Youth Vanguard, Barr. Uche Ude, Mazi Osigwe for the Igbo Unity Congress, the Coordinator, Southeast Mothers Forum, Mrs. Achike Ezeife, and the Southeast Youth Network, represented by Pastor Andy Okoro Deaconess Grace Ejike for the Southeast Market Women Vanguard.
The Igbo Group urged all southeast governors to make laws that were beneficial to citizens, warning that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu must not operate any parallel leadership as that would be inimical to the peace development of the Southeast.
They also warned Igbos, especially youths, not to succumb to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s plans of causing disunity.
“We wish to strongly condemn Nnamdi Kanu’s threat to Southeast governors and local vigilantes following the governors’ opposition of his illegal activities in the region, among which is his formation of a militia group to disturb the peace of our region.
“We call on our governors who are elected by the people to represent them not to be intimidated by Kanu’s threat. They should go all out against him by exposing him for what he is, for the betterment, peace, and unity of Igbo land.
“It is not in place of Kanu and IPOB to institute laws for the people of the South East but the functions of governors of the region who were elected constitutionally by their people to act in that regard.
“Kanu and his team do not mean well for Ndigbo. From all indications, it can be glaringly seen that his actions are for his benefits and not for the generality of Ndigbo as he tries desperately to portray.”
