Ohanaeze sold to Atiku‎, we won’t allow restructuring summit – IPOB

The spokesman of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful in this interview re-echoes the group's stand that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo should shelve its plan of holding any form of restructuring summit in Igboland. The group said Ohaneze President, Chief Nnia Nwodo had sold the apex-Igbo group to former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Excerpts!

Why is your group kicking against the Ohanaeze summit on restructuring?

Ohanaeze Ndigbo have outlived their usefulness. An organisation that claims to represent the interest of the people but are actively engaged in undermining the collective aspiration of the same people they claim to be working for should not exist. Ohanaeze Ndigbo is organisation that have soiled it's hands in the blood of the innocent. Nnia Nwodo, Gov. Dave Umahi and Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu are the brains behind Operation Python Dance II. Is it conceivable that Pa Ayo Adebanjo or the respected Afenifere leadership will take the pains of traveling to Abuja to beg the Fulani rulers of Nigeria to use the Nigerian military to invade Yoruba land to kill Yoruba sons and daughters agitating for their freedom? Despite the well documented violent tendencies of OPC, no Yoruba representative ever called for their cold blooded execution by the military. Arewa Consultative Forum never condemned a full blown terror outfit like Boko Haram; they are actively working with MACBAN (Fulani herdsmen) who are the fourth most deadliest terrorist organisation in the world. Have you heard of any word of condemnation of the activities of Fulani herdsmen from any of the northern leaders till date?

But Nnia Nwodo and Dave Umahi traveled to Abuja no less than three times to plead with the arch enemies of Biafra to launch a deadly military operation to wipe out IPOB leadership in cold blood. Nnia Nwodo and South East governors cannot initiate the assassination of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and countless other unarmed agitators and hope to benefit from their evil deeds by conducting public meetings as if nothing happened. To allow Ohanaeze Ndigbo to keep operating as normal, given their treachery and murderous mindset would mean condoning the worst form of abomination in our society. They are in effect accessory to murder after the fact. They are responsible for the death of hundreds of victims of Operation Python Dance including our leader and if anybody thinks we will easily forget what role Nnia Nwodo and Dave Umahi played in this matter they are clearly mistaken.

What evidence do you have against some Igbo leaders that you accuse of sell-out?

Evidence abound as to the catalogue of treachery and betrayal by this group of political merchants masquerading as leaders and elite led by Nnia Nwodo's Ohaneze Ndigbo. South East governors in concert with Nnia Nwodo's Ohaneze Ndigbo proscribed IPOB for no reason other than greed, envy and jealousy. Do not forget that they proscribed IPOB before the army did which was later followed by the ruling of the Fulani judge Justice Kafarati. The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) cited the proscription of IPOB by South East governors as the key reason why IPOB should be tagged a terrorist group. Go and check the court papers it is there. What other crime could be worse than inviting your enemies to invade your land to kill your so-called children or those you claim to be leading? They actively sought military intervention from the Fulani administration of Muhammadu Buhari to come and kill Nnamdi Kanu, his parents and IPOB agitators in Afaraukwu Ibeku Abia State on the 14th of October 2017 under the guise of Operation Python Dance II.

Other traitors such as Kalu Idika Kalu were busy boasting at a gathering in Lagos that Operation Python Dance was a welcome development. Before the invasion of the residence of our leader, three separate meetings were held in Lagos, Enugu and Abuja to obtain the agreement of supposes Igbo leaders that the death of Nnamdi Kanu during the invasion.
We expect responsible journalists to do their work by asking the Nigerian Army, Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi and Okezie Ikpeazu what became of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The idea of asking IPOB to produce him is implying that IPOB family members dressed up in army uniform and stormed his residence killing 28 people in the process. Mind you it won't be beyond Lai Mohammed to spin such narrative.

Any keen observer of the proceedings at Binta Nyako's court will tell you that the nonsense being reported about the sureties going to jail or forfeiting their bond money is patently false. Justice Binta Nyako never made such pronouncements as reported in certain sections of the media. The fact of the matter remains that the sureties have never had an opportunity in court to present their case before now because the prosecution has been following the wrong legal process. Abaribe's lawyer corrected this anomaly during the last sitting which the court agreed with. The court compelled the AGF to follow the right process of service which they are now doing. How can a surety go to jail or forfeit his bond when a court hasn't ruled on it yet. This trial by media must stop and journalists owe it as a duty to their readers and public at large not to help this government sway public opinion by reporting what is inaccurate on the pages of newspapers.

At the end of this whole legal process, the world will understand precisely what happened at Nnamdi Kanu's home because Buratai and his men will be cross examined in a court of law under oath. One outcome is certain at the end of this case, the army will produce our leader.
