Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has warned the members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, not to embark on any kind of street protest as Army begins withdrawing from the streets of Aba and Umuahia.
Ikpeazu stated this following a recent statement by the IPOB that it will begin street protest in a way to register their grievances and tell the world that they are no longer comfortable in Nigeria.
It will be recalled that the members of IPOB are agitating for the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra, their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still at large as men of the Nigerian Military invaded his home in Afaraukwu, Umuahia, Abia State capital in search of him.
Report had it that Mazi Kanu escaped from the scene and his whereabouts is still unknown.
Irked by the military invasion, IPOB leadership has said that the military presence in the South East will not intimidate its members, therefore they will embark on another street protest.
But the Abia State governor, Okezie Ikpeazu knowing fully well that Aba and Umuahia is the agitators base, had earlier, while addressing a press conference appealed to the member of the public that his administration will not tolerate any form of street protest.
Mr. Ikpeazu said; “With the expected exit of soldiers from the streets of Aba and Umuahia, we must warn that we will not tolerate agitators and protesters taking over the streets for any reason at all.
“Members and sympathizers of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) should henceforth desist from spreading false rumors capable of throwing our state into disorder. Those spreading such falsehood will be dealt with, according to the Law.
