The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the assassination of Edwin Azike, a traditional ruler in Imo State, on Thursday by unknown gunmen.

IPOB accused the state’s governor, Hope Uzodinma, of being behind Azike’s assassination, stating that the governor had threatened to kill any monarch who would not do his bidding.

Emma Powerful, the group’s spokesman, claimed as much in a statement made available to SaharaReporters on Sunday.

According to SaharaReporters, Azike, the traditional king of Atta Ancient Kingdom in the state’s Njaba Local Government Area, was assassinated by unknown gunmen on Friday.

He was kidnapped on Thursday, and his body was discovered on Friday morning in the neighborhood market square.

The pro-Biafra group separatist group said, “The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu strongly condemns the gruesome murder of the traditional ruler of Njaba by unknown and fake gunmen created by evil politicians in Imo State.

“We hope that the Supreme Administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, is enjoying the handiwork of the monsters he incubated and nourished in his desperation to demonise IPOB and ESN (Eastern Security Network)?
“Things are going wrong in Imo State because of threats Hope Uzodinma gave all traditional rulers and stakeholders in the state. He had threatened that any of them who did not do his bidding would have himself to blame, and today his threats have become real.

“Where are the elders in Igbo State? Where are the religious leaders? Why is Imo becoming another burning hell under the watch of Hope Uzodinma? Will the elders keep quiet until Hope and his nurtured monsters eliminate everybody?

“Hope’s wife should call his husband to order. History shall one day judge them for the atrocities being perpetrated under their watch in Imo State. Is it not time the people of Imo rise against the evil works of the Supreme Court Administrator? If Dee Sam Mbakwe had ruled old Imo State like this, Uzodinma wouldn’t have been alive to bring harm to the people of Imo State.”
