Ohanaeze to IPOB - 'Stop agitation for sovereign state'

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has
told the various groups agitating for self
determination in the south east to perish the
dream, saying that Ndigbo are stakeholders
in the country and have no reason to break
away from the union.
The group made the remark during the Igbo
Unity Summit held at Owerri, the Imo State
In a statement signed by the chairman of
the states' chairmen, Mazi Alex Okemiri, the
group condemned the Independent People Of
Biafra (IPOB) for describing the Owerri
summit as a Jamboree, noting that such
description for a gathering of eminent Igbo
leaders was very unfortunate.
They advised IPOB to respect Igbo leaders
and their fathers who fought to bring Ndigbo
to their present status.
"Ndigbo are joint landlords of Nigeria and
cannot leave it for anybody but will only
continue to seek for justice, equity and fair
play for all Nigerians in general and Ndigbo
in particular.
"Our attention has also been drawn to the
antics of a group, which styled itself as Igbo
Wuotu. It also parades itself as south east
elders and recently threatened to invade the
Government House in Umuahia to remove
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
"Nigerians, Ndigbo and Abians should
disregard the group. It is not one of the Igbo
groups recognised by the apex Igbo body,
Ohanaeze Ndigbo. It is therefore an illegal
group. Security agents have the moral duty
to fish out those behind the group as they
are inciting the public and causing confusion
in the polity. We also call on Dr Okezie
Ikpeazu not to be deterred by the antics of
the group and their sponsors.
The groups called on the people of Abia
State to continue to pray for a speedy
resolution of the legal battles the governor is
facing so that "he will not be distracted
again in his effort to reposition the state."r
