Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has described some South-East Governors as cowards.
Ejiofor made the remark while noting that the decision of the governors not to support IPOB’s struggle for secession was an act of securing political positions.
The IPOB leader’s counsel, however, warned that the present crop of leaders in the South East will be swept out during the 2019 elections.
Speaking to Saharareporters, Ejiofor said, “Southeast governors have no power to say IPOB is a terrorist organization and that is very certain.
I condemned it, and they’ve withdrawn it, saying they never at any point said that. What they said is a political statement to obtain favour from the federal government.
“Some of them are cowards and are saying that because they want to secure their political offices. We will mobilise youths who will come out in 2019 to sweep out all of the politicians.”
Reacting to the alleged invasion of Kanu’s residence on September 14, Ejiofor insisted that the Military was working with the federal government and Hausa leaders.
Ejiofor claimed that the invasion was aimed at silencing the Igbos and the struggle for the actualization of Biafra.
“This is a Northern agenda to cleanse the entire Igbos. Those who are demanding for Biafra do not wield weapons nor carry arms.
“The army is following the ploy to forcefully capture Nnamdi Kanu and silence his supporters. There are other people like the herdsmen who walk about with AK-47s, but the government has not deployed the military against them,” he said.
