The DEFENDER reports that whereas all other Igbo leaders had kept quiet with the group parading itself as Ohanaeze Ndigbo under the leadership of George Obiazor openly backing the terrorists, only the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly World has been speaking, urging other Igbo leaders to stop their conspiracy of silence and speak up against the activities of IPOB in the South East as, according to its Director General Strategic Planning and Implementations, Amb. Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, it is only a fool that brings war to his own land.

 

Perhaps now hit by the heat of condemnation for keeping quiet and watching its youths under the aegis of Nnamdi Kanu-led terrorist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) kill security officers, other Nigerians and destroy public infrastructures in their region, the South East leaders are beginning to speak up.

Although across the strata of the regional society including the political elites, professionals and communities there have been massive support for the evils of the IPOB especially when the Federal Government moved against Twitter for supporting the terrorists against the country and took the war to the doorsteps of the criminals, the South East leaders faulted the notion that they have been unbothered about activities of the erring youths, saying it is not correct to say that they have been silent over the issues.

Amid the continuous call for a breakaway from Nigeria by the proscribed IPOB, the leaders said they had risen to the occasion at various times in the past and recently.

In the meantime, the Ebonyi State Governor and the Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, David Umahi, briefed reporters at the end of a meeting of governors, ministers, as well as religious and traditional leaders in the region on Saturday in Enugu State.

“The impression that South East leaders are silent over some of our youths’ agitation for secession is not correct; South East Governors, Ohanaeze President, National Assembly members, notable leaders had come out publicly many times in the past to speak against such agitations,” he said.

The governor added, “We condemn in totality, the activities of violent secessionist groups in the South East and elsewhere, we firmly proclaim that we do not support them, they do not speak for South East.

“In order not to mismanage the unfortunate situation, South East leaders have set up a committee to engage such youths to stop and allow elders speak to address such fears.”
