Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has told the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to stay away from his domain.

He stated this in a statement issued by one of his media aides, Kelvin Ebiri.

According to Ebiri, Wike made his stance known when traditional rulers, political and opinion leaders of Ekpeye nationality paid him a solidarity visit at Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, May 4.

The governor said his administration would not leave any stone unturned in protecting Rivers and its people against those who think they can annex the state by dragging her into their agenda.

His words: “Rivers state does not belong to any other place. It is an autonomous state. Nobody in other states can come and tell us that we are with them, No.

“So, I will not allow anybody to enter this state to tell us that we are part of them. We will do everything we can to protect the interest of our state.

“We are a friendly people. We will allow anybody to come here and do business. But nobody should go beyond doing business to hoist unnecessary flags here. We will not take it.”
