Governor Nyesom Wike has stated that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB cannot tell the people of Rivers state what to do.
Wike, who appeared on Channels television on Monday night, stated that the ‘sit-at-home’ order by the pro-secession group did not work in Rivers as it is a South-South state adding that he is not afraid of the group.
“With all due respect, I have said it before and I will continue to say it, IPOB cannot make an order to say that people should sit at home in Rivers. I have said that clearly before because it does not exist in Rivers state. Rivers state is South-South. We are in Niger Delta”.
“I am not saying whether the people of South-East should not obey what IPOB has said or not but they cannot give orders to Rivers people that we should sit at home. No! It is not possible.
“Like I always say, I am not against IPOB’s activities in the South-East because they have a right to whatever they are doing with their people. But as far as Rivers state is concerned, we are not part of it. So, you cannot give an order when we are not part of whatever you are doing? How does it work? It doesn’t work that way.”
He added that he was not afraid of death. “Whether people like it or not, whether people want to kill me. I know that yes, people must die one day but you must have to speak out and say this is not acceptable”.
