• BIAFRA: The witch-hunt against Chidoka , Abaribe must stop or else—IPOB
  • AWKA—INDIGENOUS People of Biafra, IPOB,
    yesterday asked the federal government to stop
    what it called the ongoing witch hunt against
    former Aviation Minister, Chief Osita Chidoka
    and Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing
    Abia South in the senate, who both stood
    surety for the embattled IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

    the IPOB media and publicity
    secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said
    whoever advised the All Progressives Congress,
    APC,-controlled federal government to go after
    Nnamdi Kanu’s sureties and friends did not
    wish the country well.
    According to the statement, it was unfortunate
    that anybody seen close to Kanu must be
    persecuted or killed and regretted the fate being
    endured by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and
    Chief Osita Chidoka at the present moment.
    Part of the statement said: “The orchestrated
    witch-hunt against Chief Chidoka and Senator
    Abaribe must stop with immediate effect or
    else, every APC infrastructure across Biafraland,
    both human and material, will be decimated
    beyond recognition.
    “We are not interested in engaging in any direct
    confrontation with anybody, but if Nigerian
    government thinks it can harass these
    outstanding Igbo sons because they merely
    stood up to surety our leader, then they are
    grossly mistaken.
    “The obsession of this APC regime with
    Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and Biafra is its greatest
    undoing. Using blackmail to intimidate the
    political class in the South East does not mean
    there are no more men of good conscience,
    who can rise up to criticize evil when they see
    “Senator Abaribe is right to criticise this
    catastrophic disaster of a government. We are
    waiting to see the faces of those purportedly
    seeking his recall and it is then they will know
    how powerful we are.
    “IPOB is not and will never be interested in
    Nigerian politics but any politician unfairly
    singled out from the South East, South-South
    and Lower Benue to be ridiculed and messed
    up by either the EFCC or any other government
    agency, will be resisted.
    “There are countless corrupt men and women
    both inside and outside the present regime that
    have so far eluded EFCC investigations. Why is
    it that not a single Fulani man has been
    prosecuted? But a very sick Olisa Metuh is
    dragged in front of TV cameras every day,
    humiliated and ridiculed because Igbo are
    politically irrelevant in Nigeria.
    “This confirms that politics of appeasement
    played by politicians and people of South East
    and South- South is counterproductive.
    “In their futile desperation to be seen as good
    Nigerians, they allow their sons and daughters
    to be humiliated by EFCC before High Court
    “What they fail to ask is, where are all the core
    north treasury looters? Why are these looters
    of the treasury not dragged before the courts
    by the EFCC? This is a wake-up call to those
    who for long have buried their heads in the
    sand because of fear and threats of blackmail.
    “IPOB is against all forms of corruption, but
    war against corruption should not be used as
    an instrument of coercion as is the case with
    Osita Chidoka and Senator Abaribe.
    Threatening to recall Senator Abaribe because
    he spoke his mind is an impeachable offence in
    any civilised country. We recommend that
    controllers of Buhari’s regime should start their
    one-sided anti corruption crusade from the
    North because they have the highest
    concentration of looters.”
