IPOB Attack In Ekweremadu Unnecessary —Southeast Governors’ Forum

The Southeast Governors Forum has decried the attack on the former Deputy Senate President , Ike Ekweremadu, by some members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra at an Igbo summit in Nuremberg , Germany .

Reacting to the incident on Sunday in Abakaliki , chairman of the forum , Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi , said the attack was unnecessary .

In a statement issued by Mr . Emmanuel Uzor , his Chief Press Secretary , Umahi said the issue of insecurity in the southeast , cited by the group as its reason, was not peculiar to the zone .

He stated that insecurity was a national issue , which rested squarely on the Federal Government ’s control.

He further stated that the governors of the southeast had no issues with IPOB to warrant the group ’ s threat to attack them anywhere abroad .

The governor described the threat as “ empty ,” saying that the group lacked the power to track the governors around the globe .

“ They have no spread and power to do so, because they cannot see any governor to attack ,” he said .

He opined that the group’ s directive to its members to attack them would add no value toward the realisation of the agitation for Biafra .

“ The IPOB members abroad should come home and settle any issues they hold against the governors, instead of doing so in a foreign land .

“ Attacking governors in a foreign land is a wild goose chase . We love the IPOB members because they are our children ,” he stated .

Umahi further noted that IPOB could not achieve Biafra alone except it collaborates with all the critical stakeholders , including the governors.

“ They don’ t need to attack the governors to achieve Biafra and we warn them not to allow political opportunists to use them to destroy the zone .

“ They should unite and work with the governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo to achieve a president of Igbo extraction in 2023 , instead of fighting the governors.

“ We want them to be close to us, instead of taking the struggle to international arena , ” the governor said.
