The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has lambasted Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State and the lawmaker representing Imo West Senatorial district at the 9th Nigerian Senate, Rochas Okorocha, describing them as traitors.
The group also denied Uzodinma’s allegation that it collected ₦500 million as donations from Okorocha when he served as governor of the state between 2011 and 2019.
IPOB, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said both leaders do not have the wherewithal to bankroll the group’s activities.
The statement said, “We, therefore, wish to clarify that we never received any financial payment, donation or gift from Okorocha, we have nothing to do with traitors like Okorocha and Uzodinma.
“The truth remains that both Okorocha and Uzodinma cannot bankroll IPOB. Frankly speaking, they do not have the financial clout to bankroll the largest mass movement in the world.
“We don’t need their stolen, ill-gotten, blood-stained money. They better fight their battle and leave IPOB out of their mess. None of them is good enough to receive our attention.”
Powerful further accused both men of conniving with the late Chief of Army Staff (CoAS), Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, when he was he was the GOC 82 Division Enugu and other Fulani oppressors to kill Igbo people.
‘They imprisoned and tortured our youths, mothers, fathers and other agitators to please their slavemasters. Other politicians that may have sabotaged IPOB and ESN may be forgiven, but Okorocha, Hope Uzodinma, and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, will never be forgiven. They must pay for their sins sooner or later,’ Powerful stated.
