The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Governor Hope Uzodinma, ex-Governors Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha, Senator Ifeanyi Ararume and Prince Dr. Alex Mbata as sponsors of the killings and insecurity in Imo State, Southeast Nigeria.
IPOB has “once again warned the pepetrators of insecurity and the sponsors of criminalities going on in Imo State to stop.”
In a statement by its Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB noted that “the architects of the insecurity in Imo who have been made public before will be mentioned once again perhaps that will stop them.”
Part of the statement reads: “IPOB has been so worried over the continued criminalities going-on in Biafra Land especially in Imo State. The Supreme Court Governor Hope Uzodinma who is a Fulani stooge in Imo State Government is totally uninformed and confused of what is happening in his State and he is enjoying money he is getting from his masters as money for insecurity. He is so beclouded with the doings and bidding of fulani terrorists ideas and agenda, who imposed him on the Imo State people. He has lost control of the happenings in his State.
“IPOB previously mentioned the likes of two former Governors of Imo State and a former Senator in the persons of Owelle Rochas Okorocha and Chief Emeka Ihedioha with former Senator Ifeanyi Ararume as the brains behind the numerous killings, kidnapping for ransom, car snatchers and insecurity going on in Imo State. These duds had secret meetings and agreed to make, Supreme Court Governor, Hope Uzodinma Government ungovernable untill his tenure elapses. They also agreed that as soon as this Government ended as a failure, they will mobilize support for an incoming Government and ensure that Imo State returns to its former glory as the most peaceful State in the region.
“But the Supreme Court Governor of Imo State was so ignorant of the traps laid for him. Out of desperation, he goofed by contracting Asari Dokubo to recruit criminal boys from Izon land to attack ESN and support him to tackle this high level of insecurity going on in Imo State not knowing that IPOB don’t indulged in criminalities. Asari Dokubo being somebody who hates Ndigbo and Biafra agitation championed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide brought out his criminal gang to kill innocent Biafrans in Imo State in the name of chasing IPOB and Nnamdi KANU.
“Therefore we are warning Izon people to caution Asari Dokubo. If Nigeria Government with all their military arsenal can’t stop IPOB, Asari Dokubo and his criminal gangs from kalabari are small fry to IPOB. Now that Asari Dokubo is displaying his ignorance and killing skills on our innocent citizens, nobody should blame IPOB when we lunch offensive attack against him and his Kalabari criminals in Imo State who followed him because we must get them. We are being restrained by blood ties between Izon and Igbos are the same because blood is ticker than water but such restrain is not permanent. However, when we come after Asari Dokubo and his criminal gangs operating in Imo State. Biafrans should know that IPOB don’t have problems with our Izon brethren, the problem are not Izon people but Asari Dokubo and his criminal gangs.
“Our forefathers and mothers had never told us that Izon and Ndigbo had problems though enemies used the Biafra Civil war era to cause confusion and disunity between the brothers and we knew that blood is ticker than water and the two brothers was caused the relationship between two brothers. Our history had never showed us that we are one people who are at peace with one another intermarried and other social things. We can not afford to start fight we will regret with ourselves Izon people are not hard or warriors more than Ndigbo. Even though some efulefus from Izon see Ndigbo as their enemies and cowards but we are not, and we are not and we remain unmoved since immemorial but our fathers and mothers told us that Izon people are brothers and sisters living at Azumili (Brethren behind the Sea side) as they used to call that time onumili.
“Again IPOB intelligence unit, the M.Branch, discovered another man who were behind the plans and supported Hope Uzodinma to ensure that he eliminate lots of Imo State youths and citizens of Orlu area. He is the APC Senatorial Candidate for Owerri Zone Senatorial District, Prince Dr. Alex Mbata from Ngwoma Obube in Owerri North LGA of Imo State. This criminal had a secret meetings with Hope Uzodinma thinking that Hope Uzodinma will give power but he don’t know that with Hope Uzodinma he has lost the jamboree selection process called nigeria election and they were doing on how to decimate any body suspecting to be ESN operatives and how they will handled anybody found out to be IPOB member in Imo State, they are too small. He is among the wicked souls cheering Hope Uzodinma over his consistent tyranny on the people of Imo State.
“We know that he collected N500million from Imo State Government as payoff for mismanaging Concorde Hotel under Rochas administration. His shenanigans in IMSU as Pro-Chancellor under the same Rochas administration is well known to us. Therefore, anybody who sees this man should know that he is an enemy of al’Igbo and he should be treated as such.
“Therefore, people must understand and know that these following polititcians; Chief Emeka Ihedioha, Sen. Ararume Ifeanyi, Sen. Rochas Okorocha, Prince Dr. Alex Mbata and Gov. Hope Uzodima are the names behind the insecurity in Imo State. They should settle their polical scores among themselves and allow Imo People to have peace.”
