The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says the South-East governors and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo will regret their alleged role in its proscription by the Federal Government.
The group described the proscription as the greatest mistake its leaders had made in history.
IPOB through a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, alleged that the Igbo leaders by the act opened the area to constant attacks and humiliation by alleged terrorists, herdsmen, and bandits.
According to Powerful, the current attacks and killings of the people of the area were the beginning of the ugly lessons for what it termed “the treacherous and ignoble role of the governors and other actors in the proscription of IPOB.”
The statement read in part, “Conniving with the enemies to get rid of IPOB, which is the only defence line of Biafra nation, is the greatest mistake made by the South-East governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo and some self-acclaimed Igbo political leaders.
“It is a constant reminder of the Igbo adage that says ‘when you kill your hero in an internal squabble, during an external fight you must remember him’.
“The reward of treachery is shame and eternal regret. By conniving with the enemies to get rid of IPOB that is the only defence line of Biafra nation, they have opened our land to constant attack and humiliation.”
