Governors of the south-east and members of Ohaneze Ndigbo have received a serious threat from IPOB.
The Indigenous People of Biafra has sent a warning message to South-East governors and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo over the role they played to have the group proscribed by the federal government.
The group threatened that South-East governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo will regret the decision.
It described the proscription as the greatest mistake the Ohaneze Ndigbo and the South-East governors had made in history.
IPOB alleged that the Igbo leaders by the act opened the area to constant attacks and humiliation by alleged terrorists, herdsmen, and bandits.
A statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Wednesday, said current attacks and killings of the people of the area were the beginning of the ugly lessons for what it termed “the treacherous and ignoble role of the governors and other actors in the proscription of IPOB.”
The statement read in part, “Conniving with the enemies to get rid of IPOB, which is the only defence line of Biafra nation, is the greatest mistake made by the South-East governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo and some self-acclaimed Igbo political leaders.
“It is a constant reminder of the Igbo adage that says ‘when you kill your hero in an internal squabble, during an external fight you must remember him’.
“The reward of treachery is shame and eternal regret. By conniving with the enemies to get rid of IPOB that is the only defence line of Biafra nation, they have opened our land to constant attack and humiliation.”
