The Indigenous People of Biafra has faulted claims credited to the Ohanaeze Ndigbo that its members burnt the country home of former Ohanaeze President General, the late Prof. George Obiozor.
The pro-Biafra group described Ohanaeze’s claim as “unguarded and concocted,” saying neither the late Obiozor nor any of his family members had ever accused IPOB of committing such an atrocity.
The group, in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Thursday, saod, “We, the global family of IPOB, take great exception to the unguarded and concocted statement credited to Damian Okeke-Ogene, who claims to be speaking for Ohanaeze Ndigbo as their Vice President-General.
“We are not amused by the statement from him accusing IPOB of being responsible for the burning down of the country home of the late Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s President-General, Prof. George Obiozor.
“First and foremost, IPOB members are neither hoodlums nor terrorists and do not burn people’s houses or attack Biafrans even at the highest level of provocation. IPOB didn’t burn late Prof. Obiozor’s country home. Neither the late Obiozor nor his family has ever accused IPOB of those atrocities.
“IPOB and the ESN operatives were never in any confrontation with the late Prof. George Obiozor. How then can the disciplined IPOB members burn the house of a man who did not confront us either in words or action?”
