The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday allegedly disrupted a church function attended by a governorship aspirant in Anambra State on the platform of the Progressives Peoples Alliance, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo.
The conflict, it was gathered, happened at Odoekpe, Ogbaru Local Government Area of the state.
It was further gathered that the IPOB youths stormed the campaign team of the PPA governorship aspirant that went to Ogbaru to worship at God’s Own Pentecostal Church.
The pro-Biafrans were seen with Biafra flags and singing Biafran songs, they besieged the worship centre, asking the PPA flag bearer and his entourage to desist from addressing the congregation and leave their place.
One of them said, “Many politicians have been lying to us and used us for so long ; we don’t need them again.
“Our youths are jobless, our roads are bad. We want our freedom and we do not want all these politicians here anymore,” he raged.
However, Ezeemo continued to address the congregation amid the confusion that ensued.
He said “I’m a Biafran in practice given that I brought down all my investments to my homeland.
“I can understand the agitation of these youths. We have been lied to for so long by these politicians but I left Britain to come back home so that I can make things right. Just give me a chance, I will not let you down.”
