Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, has lambasted the governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, for banning IPOB from organizing its activities in the state.
A statement attributed to Umahi, said: “The attention of the public is hereby drawn to a Federal High Court order, which proscribed the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) since September 2017 and classified it as a terrorist organisation in Nigeria. By that order, the IPOB has become an unlawful organisation, and all its activities become criminal within the provisions of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act of 2011.”
“Members of the public are therefore warned that any participation in the activities of the organisation, under whatever guise has become an offence punishable under various laws of the country.“As a responsible government committed to maintaining law and order, the state government is not going to allow IPOB to endanger the lives and property of their citizens, by organising any form of activity in the state.
Reacting to it in a statement on his twitter account, on Tuesday, Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu said:
“The shameful news that Dave Umahi wants #IPOB to remain proscribed in the face of Fulani violence & threats of invasion by terror herdsmen in SE is yet another affirmative evidence of his prominent role in bringing Python Dance to our land. The prize for treachery is death.”
