The Governors of the five south-eastrrn states of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States have threatened to deploy all arsenal at their disposal to drag the leader of the renegade group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, back to Nigeria, if he as much as attacked any indigene from the region, as his group did former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
In a statement late Tuesday by Governor Dave Umahi, the Governors expressed sadness on the attack on Ekweremadu describing it as an “ugly display and dance of shame by IPOB in Germany”.
They add: “We totally condemn it as we weep for them as they never knew the implication of their naked dance in public.
“We have also noted the empty threats by Mr. Nnamdi Kanu (a former ordinary Member of MASSOB) to attack Governors of South-East, Ohanaeze leadership and other Igbo politicians for not supporting the self-acclaimed supreme leader in his self-fight for the raw power and wealth while pretending to be fighting for Ndigbo.
“We wish to warn that should any Southeast person be attacked anywhere in the world, we shall, by all means, bring back Kanu to Nigeria to face the wrath of our people. It is madness for anyone who wants raw power with no experience to think that we Governors will support the killing of our people giving out our scarce land to herdsmen.
“If Kanu is serious, let him direct IPOB to fight those foreign killer herdsmen in their countries of origin since he claims the IPOB is in over 100 countries in the world.
“If Kanu, who was previously in MASSOB but needed power and money wants Biafra and he is the self-acclaimed supreme leader, let him come back home with his army and guns to lead us to battle for the empire he desires to lead other than cheap talks. Soonest Ndigbo will know him better.
“We assure our people that we are doing so much to protect them against killer herdsmen and other insecurity problems. We have also been kidnapping and cultism in the Southeast to near zero level.
“We are highly committed to the security and well-being of our people and will never be distracted by cheap talks”.
