Presidential Ambition: Stay Away From South-East, IPOB Tells Wike




Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has been told by the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) to stay away from the South-East.

The threat to the governor which came on Wednesday, April 27 follows his declaration to contest the 2023 presidential election.

Wike has denied having any ties to the Southeast in the past, and as such he should avoid the region while he seeks votes, IPOB stated.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful who issued the threat while criticising Wike’s recent visit to Onitsha’s Obi, Igwe Alfred Achebe also added that the group promised to go all out against anyone who invites Wike in the Southeast, recalling the killings in Obigbo, Rivers State.

He said: “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu condemn the recent visit by Governor Nyesome Wike of Rivers State; to Obi of Onitsha Igwe Alfred Achebe in Anambra State. The visit is part of the reasons the youths are not happy with Igbo leaders.

“IPOB will not take it lightly on any person who intends to host Nyesome Wike in the hinterland; after the genocide he committed in Obigbo, he declared that he is not an Igboman. Wike is a genocidist and should not be forgiven.

“His father took over Igbo property in the name of the abandoned property; and he trained Wike with the money he accumulated from the abandoned property he collected from Igbo people in Igweocha.

“This was after the war of genocide against the Igbo people in 1970; which moved Wike to hate anything associated with Igbo but he should not come for Igbo vote. We are warning him.

“Gov Nyesome Wike committed genocide against the people in his state claiming he is not an Igbo man; and today he became an Igbo man. This is because of the political interest and votes he needs from Igbo land, Wike refused to understand that a time like this will come in his life. Wike should be ashamed of himself because he could openly beg Igbo people for one vote in the election.”
