Imo State ,Governor Rochas Okorocha in his recent speech describes Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the group that is fighting for sovereign republic in the South-Eastern part of nigeria ,as a “child’s play” calling the leader Nnamdi Kanu as a “child.”
This is what okorocha had to say yesterday, the 13th of september 2017 at a delegation of the forum on his visit to internally displaced persons, IDPs, and victims of the recent Benue flood disaster in Benue State, said no reasonable Ibo man was backing
“I have always said that IPOB is an agitation group, but the captioning is bad when you talk of sovereignty within a sovereign nation and also talking of secession.
“Let me assure you that no Ibo person or man is in support of secession and people must see this as a childish act. We must stand up to address it before it becomes a national problem.
“As for us leaders in that area, it will be insane for anyone to think that the IPOB leader will ask us to follow him to seek secession.
“So Nigerians must learn to address it specifically. If you are addressing IPOB you should be specific and not to address it as if it is an Ibo affair.”
According to HeraldNg, Okorocha donated N10 million to the victims and also sympathized with Benue State over the disaster, stressing that his team was on a fact-finding mission to pave way for a visit of the entire All Progressives Congress, APC, governors in the country.
