Apex Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, has condemned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over a recent bomb attack on a church in Port-Harcourt owned by the father of State governor, Nyesom Wike.
Three suspects arrested over the attack confessed to being members of IPOB adding that they carried out the attack to gain status within the proscribed group. On November 29th 2020, the suspects, identified as Progress Owudinjo, 37, from Etche, Rivers State; Apuro Victor, 25, from Ebonyi State; and John Okorie, 38, from Abia State, detonated dynamite within the premises of the Christian Universal Church Incorporated owned by Mr. Nlemanya Wike.
In a statement sent to GLOBALGISTNG on Friday evening signed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, President-General of Ohanaeze Youth Council, the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu may end up like embattled ex-pensions boss, Abdulrasheed Maina.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has described the recent Confessions of ipob members, allegedly detonated a dynamite at the church attended by Elder Wike, father of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike at Azikiwe street in Diobu, Port Harcourt as “the incubation of Monsters and end of the Road for IPOB”.”
“Suspects Confessions will be a disaster for IPOB,as these evidences will be repeatedly used against them(IPOB)before the international community and tensions are rising, with the evidence of Nnamdi Kanu’s directives to Members to unleash violence during Endsars protests, its IPOB’s self inflicted wounds, and capable of putting Nnamdi Kanu in the shoes of Abdulrasheed Maina, who was recently rearrested in Niger.”
“OYC insists that it’s never too late for IPOB to rescind on this dangerous path of self destruction and retreat from making reckless Statements that will be used as a trap and huge indictment against them and Justifiable reasons for anyone to believe that the terrorist Tag on them was genuine,” with past ipob’s threats and rantings.
“It will be difficult for them to exonerate themselves from the alleged Bombing of Wike Father’s church, and the fact that ipob Suspects Confessed over the alleged terrorist attacks on the church, is a bad omen and ipob is finished”.
