More troubles for Ikpeazu, Umahi as IPOB vows to stop their 2nd term bid
. Says all Igbo politicians involved in python dance won’t win election in 2019
By Steve Oko
The second term bid of Gov Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State as well as his Ebonyi State counterpart, David Umahi has come under serious threat as the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to stop them.
IPOB also vowed to truncate the re-election bid of all Igbo politicians allegedly involved in the invitation of the military for a special operation in the South East geopolitical zone in 2017 code-named Python Dance.
The pro-Biafra group which was reacting to a comment credited to Ikpeazu that he would collaborate with other South East Governors to ensure the father of IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu who went missing since his palace was raided during the Python Dance was re-united with his family.
IPOB cautioned Ikpeazu against unguarded utterances over the whereabouts of Kanu’s father, HRM Eze Israel Kanu, the wife, Lolo Sally, and son Nnamdi.
HRM Kanu is the traditional ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu autonomous community in Umuahia North Local Government Area.
IPOB said it had not forgiven Ikpeazu over his alleged role during the operation python dance.
The statement signed by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful read in part :
Erosion site at Isuikwuato
” It will be a monumental insult and a desecration of the memory of the dear departed for Okezie Ikpeazu to return as Abia State governor in 2019. The same fate applies to all those implicated in Operation Python Dance.
“Current Igbo governors are unrepentant Fulani slaves and their continued stay in power will represent a formidable obstacle on our road to freedom. They cannot return in 2019 no matter what Fulani controlled INEC does.
“If Fulani soldiers under the cover of Nigerian Army can invade Biafraland, kill, torture and detain innocent people including our mothers with such impunity, then the title of Chief Security Officer of the State is lost on these quislings occupying government houses in the east.
“The likes of Okezie Ikpeazu and Dave Umahi exist to please the northern caliphate even if it means poisoning all Igbos to death in the process. All they care about is exalted political office and unfettered access to money allocated to their state.
“Their time has come to an end. 14 September 2017 was the day Okezie Ikpeazu murdered sleep. Those offering what amounts to mere sycophantic value to his campaign for re-election are doing so at their own risk. IPOB and Kanu family cannot be bought with money or material, Biafra freedom is the ultimate.”
IPOB accused Ikpeazu of hypocrisy for his alleged promise to intensify efforts towards the search to locate and restore the missing monarch.
The statement further read :
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) find it beneath contempt that a failed governor and a stooge of the northern cabal in the person of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu will callously seek to endear himself to the traumatised Afaraukwu community by mouthing what amounts to gibberish before a rented crowd of hungry individuals as part of his efforts to get re-elected in 2019.
“Not only is Okezie Ikpeazu a congenital liar and coward, he is … in receipt of …goods from the palace of Eze Israel Okwu Kanu. IPOB Intelligence Unit is in receipt of incontrovertible photo and video evidence of Ikpeazu receiving items …from Eze Kanu’s Palace by the Nigerian military.
“Okezie Ikpeazu, Dave Umahi, Willie Obiano, Nnia Nwodo and others are the prime instigators of Operation Python Dance which they have never denied.
“They know where the military kept Eze Israel Kanu and Ugoeze Sally Kanu, to pretend otherwise is an exercise in futility. At the appropriate time all those responsible for the military invasion of Afaraukwu and the loss of 28 IPOB family members will be held to account.
“It is not a question of if but when. Feigning ignorance or knowledge of the invasion of the 14 September 2017 shows what … Okezie Ikpeazu is.
“South East Governors Forum in collaboration with Ohaneze Ndigbo and a few others based in Lagos/Abuja, worked hand-in-hand with Fulani caliphate to plot the assasination of Nnamdi Kanu and his parents.
“This is a fact! Okezie Ikpeazu thinks that a few weasel words and paltry 2 Million Naira shared amongst impoverished hungry people presented to him at the Banquel Hall of Abia State government house, will eradicate the sacrilegious invasion of the home of an Igbo traditional ruler.
“Teachers and other civil servants in Abia State are owed upwards of two years salary with no hope in sight of when they are likely to get paid but Okezie Ikpeazu is busy distributing money in the hope of buying the conscience of the people.
“Such gimmick may have worked in the past but not in this era of IPOB. Okezie Ikpeazu is a one term governor because he is a traitor to the people of Biafra in general and Abia in particular.
“No amount of stomach infrastructure initiative, like this one organised for him by a certain Udochukwu Ogbonna an indigene or Isiama Afaraukwu, who is unsurprisingly an Abia civil servant- hopefully seeking to secure his unpaid salary, will save him.
” INEC’s world famous rigging antics will not save him either because IPOB High Command has determined that all those that had in a hand in bringing Operation Python Dance to Biafraland will pay a heavy price for their betrayal.
“Any person, persons or political party investing in Okezie Ikpeazu to be re-elected governor of Abia State is not only mistaken and wasting their resources but naive to the point of stupidity.
“Okezie Ikpeazu cannot … and expect to be returned to power. Have we forgotten Amnesty International report on the massacre of civilians at National High School Aba?
