Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has warned the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, against deceiving Ndigbo with the promise of the actualisation of Biafra.
Okorocha said any form of war now will cost the Igbo N3 trillion both in properties and assets.
He made this disclosure while handing the staff of office and certificate of recognition to traditional rulers.
On IPOB, the cloud is gathering, nobody is talking, even our traditional rulers, pastors and leaders, this is bad for our people. If you will remember vividly that few years ago, during the civil war, it was a similar story. That was how it all started.
At that time, we believed that the Ohafia warriors will be able to fight and disseminate the North.
Now we are being deceived that IPOB will drive away Nigeria and give us Biafra.
Even our pastors, men of God and some leaders in the rural areas, nobody is speaking out against this action and the song of war is coming gradually like a desert encroachment.
I urge you traditional rulers to speak against it and educate your people on the true state of things. Igbo need to build bridge of unity across the nation”.
