In his reaction to the Ozubulu Church killings on Sunday, the lader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has blamed Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, and South East governors for the attack on worshippers in a Catholic church in Anambra.
According to him, while addressing IPOB members in Abia on Monday, “They have killed our people in Onitsha. They have been to the church to massacre our people in Ozubulu.
“Do you know why they killed people at Ozubulu? The enemies are very clever. Since I came out of prison they could not attack”, he said.
Speaking further on the Ozubulu Church killings, he noted that “They were waiting to drive a division between us and the politicians in Abuja, your governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“When they saw that we (the Igbo) were together, they couldn’t do anything. They kept waiting.
“They kept giving them (South East governors and Ohanaeze leadership) money to attack IPOB.
“The moment they started doing what they were told, the enemies knew it was the time to strike. Our people are not reasonable enough to understand the threat facing them.
“The killing in Ozubulu (Church) is an example of how the enemy works. They first of all come and try your resolve and when you resist them, they use subterfuge to divide you. Once they see any space, they strike. Ohanaeze must know this.”
Kanu took the opportunity to persuade the people to boycott the governorship poll in the state.
“Tell me where in this world you have a governor like you have in Anambra, and the enemy will come and strike,” he said.
“When we ask you not to vote, people don’t understand. I warned you four years ago that a time will come when they would come into your house, your villages to massacre you and nobody will protect you. It has happened. Hasn’t it?
“They want us to vote in Anambra where they are killing our people; where they cannot protect us.
“The only reason why they want you to vote is because of the monthly allocation so that they can keep sharing money every month.
“They don’t care about you. They don’t give a damn about you.”, he said.
