We are not interested in your apology, IPOB tells Southeast governors

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has told governors of the Southest geopolitical zone that it was not interested in their apology for their alleged roles  before, during and after Operation Python Dance in the zone.

IPOB stated this in statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Saturday while reacting to the refusal of the governors to apologise in order for them to have free and unmolested movement outside the shores of the country.

The governors had said they would not apologise to the secessionist group to rescind travelling ban on them, adding that the group did not have the right to place a travel ban on them and other top politicians from the zone.

IPOB in the statement described the governors as weak and pathetic men who had sworn loyalty to their Fulani masters.

The statement reads in part: “Following refusal by South-East governors to apologise or do the needful towards IPOB against a background of their incessant attacks, abduction, arrest, killings and proscription of unarmed peaceful Biafrans before, during and after Operation Python Dance in 2017, we the global family of the IPOB categorically state that we are not interested in any apology coming from those who have continued to shamelessly preside over the Fulanisation of their ancestral lands.

“Unfortunately most people have yet to understand the danger these people portend for our existence as a race.

“We remain conscious of the complicity and duplicity of South-East governors in the whole OPD debacle and will hold them accountable at the right time.

“We are aware of their secret dealings with the government of Nigeria to enslave our people; a task we assure them can never be accomplished as long as IPOB exists.

“We are waiting for them to set foot abroad or appear in public anywhere outside Nigeria then they will know how upset we are.”
