Nnamdi Kanu has warned southeast governors not to betray their people due to the promises made to them by Aso Rock.
Warning Governor Hope Uzofinma of Imo State, Kanu said that he has been promised the 2023 vice presidential ticket just so he would allow herdsmen to operate in the state.
Kanu made this known in a statement issued by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful.
It reads: “This had always been their game plan. When they said it in 2018, we thought it was a joke, but today it has become a nightmarish reality for our people in Benue State.
“Hope Uzodinma, the governor of Imo State is working very hard to turn Imo State into another Benue State in return for an empty promise of Vice President in 2023.
“Abia State governor, Chief Okezie Ikpeazu now boasts of the two largest illegal Fulani settlements outside Arewa core north.
“If not for IPOB, these governors would have made similar claims about Abia and Imo States. Someday, Biafans will understand we IPOB are the last line of defense between them and total Fulani conquest Southeast governors have exposed them to.
“We are not Hausa peasants that betrayed their future generations by allowing themselves to be overrun by Fulani vandals, masquerading as herdsmen. We will continue to protect Biafrans with our lives.”
