Asks: ‘What has Andy Uba done since Nnamdi Kanu was abducted to seek his release?’
The Indigenous People of the Biafra (IPOB) has denied what it termed “laughable and disgraceful statement” credited to the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the Anambra election, Senator Andy Emmanuel Uba, that he met with IPOB members to discuss the forthcoming governorship poll.
In a statement, the Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful stated categorically that Andy Uba met nobody in IPOB.
“IPOB has no interest in the zoo election, and could not have met with Andy Uba or anybody or politician for that matter to discuss anything pertaining to election.
“Andy Uba and his likes should leave IPOB out of their politics.
“Again, Andy Uba could not have possibly accessed the leadership of IPOB. He should therefore stop using IPOB to get cheap popularity,” he said.
Emma Powerful noted that IPOB has no time for political desperados whose only interest is their pocket.
He asked: “How could we have granted audience to Andy Uba who has never issued common press statement against killings by Fulani herdsmen.
“What has Andy Uba done since our leader was abducted to seek his release?
“Is it now that Andy Uba is involved in Anambra election that he knows he can engage IPOB?”
He challenged Andy Uba to disclose the IPOB members he met with, warning that the freedom agitators won’t tolerate the use of IPOB’s name for any scam.
He continued: “Enough is enough!”
“We also warn media platforms to ensure they verify any news that has to do with IPOB before publishing.
“The media especially social media should stop using IPOB to market their platforms.
“We caution politicians to stop associating IPOB with their dirty politics. We have no interest in the zoo politics.
“Our mandate is to restore Biafra and we will not be distracted from that objective for whatever reason.”
