The Ebonyi state governor, Dave Umahi has accused the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB of trying to incite another civil war in Nigeria.
Umahi, however, warned Igbos to be wary of the tactics of members of the IPOB.
The governor stated this during a condolence visit to Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike by the South-East governors.
Umahi stressed that the IPOB was bent on instigating another civil war that will result in the murder of Igbo people.
You will recall that the clash between military men and IPOB members led to the deaths of many people in the Oyigbo local government area of Rivers state.
Meanwhile, Governor Wike has distanced himself from insinuations that he hated the Igbos.
Wike said ”In the wake of the Oyigbo crisis, people peddled the rumour that I am chasing Igbos out of Rivers State which is not true because the state has an enduring relationship with the Igbos.
Tell your people, Rivers people will continue to live together with Igbos. Don’t allow your sons to tell you lies. Igbos are innovative and hardworking. There can’t be Nigeria without Igbos.”
However, he charged the Igbos not to allow criminals to spoil their name.
