The Indigenous People of Biafra have claimed that the governors of the South-East geopolitical zone lack the locus standi to make decisions on behalf of the people of the region on Biafra-related issues.
This was because the group believed that the governors’ supposed disavowal of IPOB was a sign that they had already lost control of the people due to their desperation to restore the faith of their “paymasters.”
This was said in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, the secessionist group’s Director of Media and Publicity, which was made accessible to The Newsmen on Tuesday.
It said, “The purported statement by these shameless political generals without foot soldiers has only further exposed them as Caliphate boot-leakers. They know too well that they have since lost grip and control of the masses, hence, their desperation to regain the trust of their paymasters.
“They only publicly disowned IPOB, thinking that doing so will make them regain the trust and favour of the Caliphate. The governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo and the handful traitors masquerading as the Igbo political elite should wake up to the realities that they have since lost the confidence of the people.
“It’s only unfortunate, shameful and disgraceful that the so-called Igbo leaders will be quick to disown and betray their own in their quest to appease their slave masters. The South-East governors again, in 2017, they sat together in Enugu State to proscribe IPOB and the Federal Government declared them terrorists with the support of South-East governors while they are not.
“To their shame, how many times have their northern counterparts disowned the bloody terrorists, bandits and Fulani herdsmen rampaging the country? So, the South-East self-acclaimed leaders are quick to disown IPOB and ESN, yet they are calling us to accept the calls for peaceful negotiations? What hypocrisy!”
