Respect your old age - Group tells Lai Mohammed

The minister had earlier said that the just concluded Anambra governorship poll shows that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is dead.

According to Daily Post, the group said that Mohammed’s comment might lead to unrest in the nation.

They also said the minister should respect his old age and focus his attention on Boko Haram.

The BNYL Leader, Princewill Obuka said “That old man does not know how determined the Biafrans are. He saw what happened during military raid.

“Such resistance should have told them that Biafrans, if armed, would really consume Nigeria like Kanu was saying.

“He should respect his old age and turn attention to Boko Haram and Shiites.

“We have engaged mostly community youth leaders and even some community leaders in towns like Obudu, Bekwara, Ikom, and almost all the towns in Bakassi including ceded areas.

“What we have not done within the Cross River axis is meeting the paramount rulers but plans are on ground.

“In Rivers State we are organising a similar internal grassroots referendum programs in Ekpeye land of Ahoada East like we did in some towns in Akwa Ibom on the day we all stormed Onna to mark the death of our late leader, General Philip Effiong.”

IPOB ban

You will recall that all the Governors of South-East states, on Friday, September 15, 2017, announced that IPOB has been banned.

The Chairman of the South-East Governors’ forum, Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi also asked the group to articulate their grievances and send to its secretariat.
