The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has declared his intention to draw a battle-line with Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu over the arrest of about 52 Jewish worshippers during a recent peaceful procession in Umuahia, the state capital.
Kanu ordered his followers to “scattered” any gathering involving Ikpeazu’s campaign team, which will serve as a reprisal attack to him.
He issued the threat during his live radio transmission over the weekend while condemning the continued detention of the Jewish faithfuls who were arrested on December 11, 2018 and charged with terrorism and treasonable felony.
Kanu promised that Ikpeazu will never have peace until the Jewish worshippers were released.
The IPOB leader also urged his followers to rise against Ikpeazu and his supporters.
“Okezie Ikpeazu ordered the arrest of 52 Jewish adherents at my hometown for embarking on a religious procession in Umuahia which everybody does. he said.
“This is the place where Okezie Ikpeazu thinks he can come back as the governor, he’s daydreaming! Anywhere Okezie Ikpeazu’s campaign group is gathered, it will be scattered.”
