IPOB Does Not Speak For Igbos — Ohanaeze Blasts Northern Groups Over Inciting Comments

Prof George Obiozor, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has stated that the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, does not advocate for all people in the Southeast.

Obiozor, on the other hand, claimed that the group’s anger originated from a sense of injustice against the Southeast.

On Friday, when appearing on Arise TV, the President-General of Ohanaeze revealed this.

The IPOB has announced a ban on the consumption of cow meat in the South-East, which has enraged Northern politicians.

But according to Obiozor: “Take it from me and it is the right statement: IPOB doesn’t speak for Igbo and that is the truth.

“To be very candid with you, the IPOB anger is an accumulated anger based on perceived or real injustice against Ndigbo for so long.

“We understand their anger and the anger of many youths across the country.

“However, the truth of the matter is that they are not mandated to speak for Ndigbo.”

He also berated Northern Groups for making inciting comments.

“The Northern groups that are making the statements are unfortunate because we don’t respond when their youths in their youthful exuberance make certain comments like they did before that all Igbo must leave the North,” he said.

IPOB, led by Nnamdi Kanu, has been calling for Biafra and protesting the government’s alleged marginalization of the Southeast.

Kanu was arrested and charged with treason before an Abuja Federal High Court in this regard.

The Department of State Services, or DSS, has him locked up right now.

Southeast politicians have been lobbying for his release during his detention.

President Muhammadu Buhari, on the other hand, has refused to comply with all pleas for Kanu’s release, stating that he will not interfere with the court process.
