The President of Ohanaeze ndi Igbo, Mazi Nnia Nwodo has finally spoken that he has nothing to do with IPOB agitation and can never be part of it.
Nwodo who made the statement during an interactive session with the media emphasized much on the way and manner members of the indigenous people of Biafra insult Igbo elites and has renounced of being with them.
According to him, “I have endured alot from IPOB, both their insult and threats. To an extent they threatened to beat me up anywhere they see me in Europe. They have battered Ekweremmadu in Germany and nearly lynched Geoffrey Onyema in Austria last year and someone with his right senses will wake up and ask me to support such a group who have no single respect for constituted authority.
“Now the person they’ve faced now is Pete Edochie, calling him all sorts of unprintable names. Little kids of yesterday and Nnamdi Kanu is there hailing and praising them. All over social media it’s all about insult on Pete Edochie for advising them to stop insulting Ohanaeze ndi Igbo.
“All the Ohanaeze ndi Igbo elders, Igbo Governors, Igbo elites are all looking at them like cinema, let them keep insulting their elders and let’s see how they will achieve their so called Biafra.
“These are young men and women that are supposed to listen to us their fathers but no, they call us all sorts of names on daily basis. We have called their leader Nnamdi Kanu severally for us to put heads together and see how the next President of the country can come from our region come 2023, unfortunately he doesn’t want to listen to any of us but bent on causing confusion everywhere in the country and making the leadership of the country to marginalize ndi Igbo, all because of one man’s ambition.
“Ohanaeze ndi Igbo council of elders and ndi Igbo in general are peaceful loving people and can never involve ourselves in anything that will bring disharmony in our dear country”
