IPOB, bandits, insurgents are threat to Nigerians – Northern elders


The Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, has insisted that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, bandits, and insurgents are threats to Nigerians.


Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesman of NEF, was reacting to the attack on the residence of Prof. George Obizor, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.


Some assailants had razed down Obiozor’s country home at Awo-Omamma, Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State on Saturday morning.


The gunmen were said to have attacked the building using Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs, and petrol bomb.


In a tweet, the NEF spokesman wrote: “My sympathies for my brother and compatriot, Prof George Obiozo, P-G, Ohaneze Ndigo over the recent attack on his country home.


“This is a reminder that violence knows no boundaries. IPOB, bandits, insurgents, violent criminals are threats to all of us and the need for a safe future.”


Meanwhile, IPOB had distanced its members from the attack on Obiozor’s residence.


IPOB noted that the Ohanaeze President-General had never been a threat to its course, hence the Eastern Security Network, ESN, was not involved in the incident.
