Deproscribe IPOB now, Ohanaeze Ndigbo tells Buhari 
* Says it’s hypocrisy to outlaw IPOB but pamper herdsmen 
By Steve Oko 
The apex Igbo body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has demanded immediate de- proscription of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
National President of Ohanaeze, Chief Nnia Nwodo,  in a press statement said it was hypocritical on the part of the Federal Government to tag an unarmed group like  IPOB a terrorist organisation but pamper a known terror group like armed Fulani herdsmen.

The statement which was signed by the Media Special Adviser to the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Emeka Attama, said it’s provocative to proscribe mere freedom agitators while treating the real terrorists with kid gloves. 
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo reiterates its call on the Federal Government to deproscribe the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who are unarmed and constitute no threat to the peace of the country but are only advocating for self determination.

 “It amounts to double standards for the Federal Government to proscribe IPOB but refuse to declare Boko Haram and marauding herdsmen terrorist organizations,” Ohanaeze fumed. 
The apex Igbo body also dissociated with the alleged 7-day ultimatum issued to the federal government to declare the El-Zazacky Shi’ite Muslim group a terrorist organisation.
Ohanaeze said the said Igbo group which allegedly issued the ultimatum was unknown to it.
