The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has pledged to make Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma, Senator Rochas Okorocha, former Governor Emeka Ihedioha, and Ifeanyi Ararume politically irrelevant.
The banned group claimed that politicians were to blame for murders, property devastation, and insecurity in Imo State.
This was said by IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful in a statement.
According to Powerful, the group has information stating that the aforementioned individuals, as well as others who are currently being investigated, are responsible for the deaths of innocent citizens in the state.
The statement reads, “The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu has come to the knowledge of the high level of insecurity and banditry in the region, especially in Imo State.
“The movement is in possession of intel that these individuals, including some others still under investigation, have been behind the insecurity and killings of innocent Imo citizens. Rochas Okorocha, Ifeanyi Ararume and Emeka Ihedioha believe that they will use ordinary Imo citizens to wage their political war with Hope Uzodinma the bloodsucker in IKONSO’S HOUSE not minding the effect on the lives of Imo citizens.
“Rochas Okorocha, Hope Uzodinma, Emeka Ihedioha, and Ifeanyi Ararume, these men decided that innocent citizens of the state will not have peace or sleep with their two eyes closed. They have contributed immensely to the pain and suffering of the people of Imo State. IPOB will ensure that these people become politically irrelevant because they are behind all the political killings and burning of people’s properties, and destruction of their means of livelihood.”
IPOB then urged all religious leaders, traditional rulers, Umuada groups, and women’s organizations to speak up and free the state from the grip of political leaders.
According to the organization, what began as a minor political disagreement amongst Okorocha, Ararume, Ihedioha, and Uzodinma has now escalated into a full-fledged war that has resulted in the loss of lives and property.
IPOB has tasked Uzodinma, Ararume, Okorocha, and Ihedioha with resolving their personal concerns and refraining from inciting violence in the state.
“Hope Uzodinma, Rochas Okorocha, Ifeanyi Ararume, and Emeka Ihedioha must settle whatever personal issues they have amongst themselves and desist from using the innocent people of Imo State to further their evil political interest.
“We remind them that they too have families and blood also flows in their veins. This madness MUST cease forthwith because when Imo people will rise against them, IPOB will not get involved,” the group added.
