The leadership of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has blamed three serving ministers from the South-East and South-South, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu (Science and Technology), Dr. Chris Ngige (Labour and Productivity) and Rotimi Amaechi (Transportation) of working against the progress and actualisation of the Biafra state.
A statement made available to journalists in Awka, Anambra State capital, and signed by IPOB Spokesman, Mr. Emma Powerful, alleged that the three ministers were being used by the Federal Government to forestall any success that may come from the agitation for the restoration of Biafra Republic.
The statement reads: “We are also aware that those serving Ministers are making moves to sabotage the efforts for the restoration of God’s Kingdom on Earth – Biafra, but they will not succeed in all their evil doings to quench Biafra independence which is clearly around the corner.
“The leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, was appointed and ordained by God Almighty to come and liberate his people, so no man can change God’s decision towards the restoration of the ancient nation-Biafra.
“The IPOB members worldwide are aware that some unscrupulous elements from Biafra land, who were serving the Federal Government under General Muhammadu Buhari are sabotaging the efforts of the old eastern region of Nigeria.
“The Indigenous People of Biafra will soon bar them from setting their foot on Biafra land if they fail to realise that they are dragging us back.”
Continuing, IPOB said: “It is sacrilegious that people that never do well in their respective communities like Ngige, Onu, and Amaechi will be working against the interest of the Indigenous People of Biafra just because they are serving the Federal Government of Nigeria and the All Peoples Congress (APC).
“Go to their respective communities, you will find out that they are nobody. The few that regard them are those that they give little crumbs stolen from the public funds. In due time, we shall put all of them in their place.”
