IPOB berates Osinbajo for neglecting Nnamdi Kanu in peace meeting with South-East leaders

The Indigenous People of Biafra on Thursday expressed their anger at the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for holding a South-East peace and conflict resolution meeting without involving its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to the statement released by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Thursday, in Akwa, IPOB said those who attended the meeting had no major stake in the conflict intended to be resolved.

Osinbajo had on Wednesday held a meeting with leaders of thought from the South-East at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he warned those who had been engaging in hate speeches across ethnic lines in all parts of the country to always take into consideration that wars sometimes start with words and not necessarily with bullets.

IPOB, in the statement, faulted Osinbajo’s meeting and described it as of no effect.

 

It said “This meeting, we understood, was convened at the instigation of the Nigerian acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, following the political fallout from the hugely successful IPOB sit-at-home order of 30th of May, 2017.
