Biafra: IPOB members are not terrorists, I have them around me – Peter Obi

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi has reacted to the claims that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is a terrorist organization.

The presidential candidate said that members of the organization are not terrorists.

The Informant247 recalls that the federal government of Nigeria had proscribed the organization after intense struggle for the realization of Biafra.

But, the indigenous organization and Nnamdi Kanu, its leader, had continued to emancipate for the realization of Biafra.

The separatist organization has also continued to deny the label of terrorist.

However, the former governor of Anambra state has said that members of the indigenous group are not terrorists.

The presidential candidate while expressing his opinion on a television session, said the separatist organization members who are close to him do not constitute a threat to the country.

Obi said: “The only thing I disagree with is naming IPOB terrorist; they are not terrorists. Those who took the decision may have information that I don’t have.

“I stay in Onitsha, and I can tell you that they are people I pass them on the road every day.

“I meet and live with them; in fact, I usually see people gathering, and I have never had the sense of threat or molestation from them, even when they gather.”
