Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday, alleged that Igbo governors have secretly donated lands in their respective states for RUGA, saying that IPOB will never allow that.
The group also alleged that all the antagonistic activities of Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State are aimed at his ambition of becoming Vice President of Nigeria in 2023.
IPOB also alleged that Umahi is a mole in Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, working for All Progressives Congress, APC, and urged him to be bold enough now that his unwarranted attacks against IPOB is clear and his second term seat secured, to declare for APC.
IPOB, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said: “We are in the know that Igbo governors have secretly donated lands in their respective states for RUGA, which IPOB will never allow regardless of how many of us die in the process of defending our land.
“Governor Umahi’s purported ban of IPOB activities in Ebonyi State is an exercise in futility, as it became dead on arrival following IPOB’s strong base in the state.
“Governor Umahi’s purported ban of IPOB activities in Ebonyi State was not the first time he made pronouncements that were not obeyed by Ebonyians, as he has in the past issued a Fatwa against our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and boasted that IPOB rally would never hold in Ebonyi State but it held.
“Umahi boasted to his fellow IPOB antagonists that our leader will be shot at sight if he dares enter Ebonyi State. But Kanu entered the state and Umahi and his co-travellers went into hiding because of the mammoth crowd that followed him on the streets of Abakaliki.
“Since the successful outcome of our peaceful protest and rally in Abakiliki against RUGA settlement in Ebonyi State, Governor Umahi and his government have become paranoid, no doubt acting on the instruction of his northern handlers.”

“Sowore Should Fight For Oduduwa, Nigeria Is Useless” — Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has urged the convener of RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, to fight for the freedom of Oduduwa republic rather than fighting for ‘one Nigeria’ as “Nigeria is useless.”
Kanu said this during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, yesterday Sunday, December 8.
During the broadcast, Kanu who described Sowore as the “new face of Yoruba liberation”, stressed that anytime the activist steps out of prison, he would be the next face of Yoruba land.
The IPOB leader expressed optimism that Sowore will come out of DSS custody and that he would lead his people to freedom.
Kanu further stressed that the reign of National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the leader of the Yoruba nation is over because Sowore is the new face of Yorubaland.
His words: “Let me tell Tinubu this, your reign as the leader of the Yoruba people is finished, Sowore is the new face of Yoruba liberation.
“Sowore is the new Yoruba leader. Any day Sowore steps out of prison, he would be the next face of Yoruba land.
“Sowore will come out and he would lead his people to freedom. Sowore should go and fight for Oduduwa, Nigeria is useless.”
Biafra: Sowore Is In Prison Because Of Me — Nnamdi Kanu
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that the convener of RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore is in the custody of the Department of State Services because he had a meeting with him (Kanu).
Kanu stated this during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra on Saturday, December 8.
The IPOB leader during the broadcast condemned the harassment of Sowore in court by DSS operatives, while also berating the Buhari-led federal government for the spate of human rights abuse in Nigeria.
Calling for Sowore’s release, Kanu alleged that the Nigerian government is not interested in the Sahara Reporters publisher but is only using the activist to get close to him (Kanu).
“The only reason Sowore is in prison is because he had a meeting with me. They are not fighting Sowore. They are fighting me,” he said.
