The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has issued warning to the governor of Imo State Hope Uzodinma and Rochas Okorcha over what he said to be forceful takeover of the Imo governorship seat by the APC.
Kanu disclosed that “Uzodinma is a stooge of the caliphate like Okorocha before him” and claimed that the move to install Uzodinma was more religious than political. And has vowed to resist such move.
According to the IPOB leader, the decision to “foist” Uzodinma on the state as governor is part of a grand conspiracy against the Southeast geopolitical zone by forces loyal to the caliphate and the presidency. To him, the better option for the court would have been to order a repeat election in the disputed polling units.
The IPOB leader, who spoke on the 19th edition of his international broadcast from the United Kingdom on February 29, 2020, said:
“Uzodinma is an imposition, a caliphate stooge, and Fulani slave. The forces want to determine what happens in Imo State. What they want to occupy is Owerri, the spiritual nerve centre of Biafraland, because they believe they can strangulate us from Imo
“Uzodinma is a stooge of the caliphate like Okorocha before him. Their plan cannot stand, I don’t know who Ihedioha is and I don’t care, but we won’t allow the imposition of a stooge to stand. In order to avert disaster, the best thing they (justices of apex court) should do to redeem themselves is to call for a fresh election in the disputed areas. The imposition of the governor is unsustainable in law, before man and God. Justice must be served.”
