Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has revealed that the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has sentenced some southeast governors to death for yet-to-be-disclosed reasons.

The governor disclosed that he is one of those under the IPOB death sentence.

Ikpeazu noted that the issues of marginalisation and inequality raised by the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, are valid.

However, he faulted the strategy being employed by IPOB, advising the secessionist group to explore dialogue and peaceful ways to seek redress.

He stated this during a visit to the Osasu Igbinedion pan-African television studio in Abuja on Thursday, April 22, saying

“People are beginning to think now that some of the issues raised by Nnamdi Kanu are, if they were issues of injustice, marginalisation, and inequality, any part of society has a right to begin to feel cheated or unwanted.

“So, some of those things which Nnamdi said are valid. Some of us can see it. We cannot continue to hide behind a finger. But some of us do not subscribe to his style or strategy, because I do not understand where he is going and how he is going and when he plans to pull the break up and what he wants to achieve.

“If I have a way of conveying my views to the leadership of that group, what I will say is that they should find a way to enter into conversation and let people know. I am under their fatwa now and some of my brother governors. They say, ‘If you see them, kill them.”

The governor cautioned IPOB against instigating a civil war in the country, hinting that violence would not favour anyone.

Ikpeazu said the insecurity in the country should be addressed holistically, stressing the need for a change of strategy in the prosecution of the war against insurgents and bandits.
