South-East Governors ban IPOB activities

The governors of the South-East states have proscribed all the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Channels TV reports.

They called on the leaders of IPOB and all other aggrieved groups to articulate their position on all national issues and submit to the committee of governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo, and the members of the National Assembly from the zone through the Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum.

The governors of the five South-East states took the decision during a five-hour closed-door meeting at the Government House in Enugu, which was attended by the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo John Nwodo, and the General Officer Commanding 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Lt-Gen, Adamu Abubakar.

Among the resolutions during the meeting is an appeal to the President to withdraw the military in the South East at the moment.

Although the governors “reinforced their commitment to one united and indivisible Nigeria”, they restated their call for the restructuring of Nigeria “to achieve justice and fairness to every Nigerian”.

Also, they assured all Nigerians, indigenes and non-indigenes, in the region of their safety, adding that they have been in touch with the Northern Governors Forum, which assured them of the safety of South-East indigenes living in the North.

On the recent violence in the region and allegations against the military and IPOB, the governors said investigations were ongoing and “appropriate action will be taken against anyone culpable”.
