The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has cautioned the Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Alex Ogbonnia and elder statesman Chukwuemeka Ezeife.
The group cautioned them for their utterances concerning the leadership of the IPOB.
The Eastern Updates reports that lately, there have been speculations over IPOB’s leadership following orders issued by Ekpa, a self-acclaimed disciple.
Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, said the group has only one leader in the person of Nnamdi Kanu.
Ekpa recently ordered a five-day sit-at-home order across the Southeast, but IPOB denied issuing such a directive.
Powerful, in a statement, said: ‘We, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable liberator, Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, wish to caution the Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Alex Ogbonnia and chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife to stop claiming ignorance of who the Leader of IPOB is.
“’If indeed he is the real Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Ezeife being who he is and unaware of who the IPOB leader is, they deserve not to occupy that position in Igboland. We warn Dr. Alex Ogbonnia and Ezeife never to address the criminal residing in Finland as a former IPOB leader, or we will open a book of remembrance just for them. Mazi Nnamdi KANU remains IPOB leader worldwide and will remain so till Biafra is restored.’
Speaking further, he said: ‘It’s hypocritical that a man who claims to be Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze and an elder can also claim that they are not aware who has been the IPOB leader all this while.’
Powerful described Ekpa as an imposter contracted to destroy IPOB.
He urged the National President of Ohanaeze to call Ogbonnia and Ezeife to order.
‘The criminal in Finland you are referring to has never been an IPOB member; he was contracted to come and destroy IPOB and Ndigbo and will never be IPOB member till Biafra comes.
‘Professor George Obiozor, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide should call these men to order if indeed they are Ndigbo and Ohanaeze Ndigbo Publicity Secretary or scribe and chieftain,’ he added.
