The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Saturday said they were no
longer interested in any apology from the South-East governors.
The pro-biafran group had in an open letter to the South-East governors,
made many demands from the governors for there to be a truce which
included open apology.
The governors, on their parts, through their forum chairman, and Ebonyi
state governor, David Umahi had said governors in the zone have no
apology to tender to the group.
They said IPOB has no right to place a travel ban on South-East
governors and other top politicians from the zone.
But in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful,
the separatist movement described the governors as weak and pathetic men
who have sworn lotalty to their Fulani masters.
It partly read, “Following the recent denial and subsequent refusal of
South East Governors to apologize or do the needful towards IPOB against
a background of their incessant attacks, abduction, arrest, killings and
proscription of unarmed peaceful Biafrans; before, during and after
Operation Python Dance II in 2017, we the global family of the
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) categorically state that we are not
interested in any apology coming from those who have continued to
shamelessly preside over the Fulanisation of their ancestral lands.
“Unfortunately most people are yet to understand the danger these people
portend for our existence as a race.
“We remain conscious of the complicity and duplicity of South East
Governors in the whole Operation Pyyhon Dance debacle and will hold them
accountable at the right time.
“We are aware of their secret dealings with the Government of Nigeria to
enslave our people, a task we assure them can never be accomplished as
long as IPOB exists.
“We are waiting for them to set foot abroad or appear in public anywhere
outside Nigeria then they will know how upset we are.”
