The South-East governors yesterday condemned in totality the reported invasion and sporadic shooting in the residence of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] in Umuahia by soldiers.
The governors regretted that the invasion of the IPOB leader’s home was coming at a time they were making concerted effort to broker peace between federal authorities and the members of the Biafra agitators.
“The South East governors are worried that the relationship between the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] and the government is degenerating into this kind of ugly situation.
“They did not want this kind of situation to occur and that was why they invited the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, with Prof. Ben Nwabueze to their meeting in Enugu. So, they are working to ensure that such situation does not reoccur.
