The Proscribed leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has accused the Governors of Southeast over the security challenges in the region. He blamed the Governors for the delay in setting up their own security outfit rather than depending on the Federal Government to protect the Igbo people and Biafrans.
Nnamdi Kanu also attacked President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo over the letter he wrote to the Inspector General of Police, IGP, on alleged public display of AK-47 assault rifles in Awka, Anambra State. He said, IPOB has already noticed this trend since 2012 and the Governors did not believe us. We have complained about the threats of herders carrying AK 47 about in the Southeast.
Now they are calling on Buhari and Inspector General of Police to help them provide security for their own people rather than follow the step of Southwest in setting up Amotekun. Why are they delaying in setting up the Southeast security outfit?
Kanu also described the letter as laughable and one that will not yield any fruit because the IGP or any policeman will never arrest or stop them because power from above is backing them.
The IPOB leader alleged that Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South-East governors gave the Fulani leaders and their boys the opportunity and power to threaten South East and Biafrans by allegedly betraying IPOB that could have stopped them.
Nnamdi Kanu, however, holds the Southeast Governors responsible for the killings in the region.
