The Indigenous People of Biafra, also known as IPOB, has issued a serious warning to Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
On Wednesday, IPOB warned Wike to avoid the Southeast.
According to the group, this is because Wike has previously denied having any ties to the Southeast and, as a result, should avoid the region while canvassing votes.
The IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, issued the warning in response to Wike’s recent visit to the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe.
In response to the killings in Obigbo, Rivers State, IPOB has vowed to go all-out against anyone who hosts Wike in the Southeast.
Powerful said in a statement that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate should be ashamed of himself for begging Igbos for votes.
Powerful said Wike denied being an Igboman; hence visiting the Southeast may consume him.
He said: “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU condemn the recent visit by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to Obi of Onitsha Igwe Alfred Achebe in Anambra State. The visit is part of the reasons the youths are not happy with Igbo leaders.
“IPOB will not take it lightly on any person who intends to host Nyesom Wike in the hinterland after the genocide he committed in #Obigbo, and he declared that he is not an Igboman. Wike is a genocidist and should not be forgiven.”
“His father took over Igbo property in the name of abandoned property and he trained Wike with the money he accumulated from abandoned property he collected from Igbo people in Igweocha after the war of genocide against the Igbo people in 1970, which moved Wike to hate anything associated with Igbo but he should not come for Igbo vote.”
“We are warning him.“Gov, Nyesom Wike committed genocide against the people in his state claiming he is not Igbo man and today he became an Igbo man because of political interest and votes he needs from Igbo land, Wike refused to understand that a time like this will come in his Iife.”
“Wike should be ashamed of himself because he could openly beg Igbo people for one vote in the election.”
