IPOB denies mobilizing Biafran women to shame Nwodo in Enugu

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday denied mobilizing some women, who allegedly booed the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr Nnia Nwodo during his speech at a function tagged Handshake Across the Niger in Enugu.

IPOB said the women who chanted in disagreement to Nwodo's call for restructuring, rather than attainment of Biafra merely expressed their unhappiness, but were not sponsored by IPOB.

A press statement signed by Emma Powerful, media and publicity secretary of IPOB insisted that the group would have done better by mobilising a larger crowd to Enugu for the event tagged; a handshake across the Niger, if it was interested.

IPOB statement read in part: "We have pedigree, culture and proud tradition of announcing our activities ahead of time and also accepting responsibility for all our actions."

IPOB said the chant by the women started immediately Nwodo while speaking at the event stated that what Igbo wants is restructuring and not secession.

 "While we respect the event and the presence of our brothers and sisters from the great Yoruba nation, we venture to state that the humiliation of Nwodo in Enugu on Thursday was most probably a spontaneous reaction by ordinary people of our land who find it quite amusing that they think the agitation for Biafra restoration has been crushed.

"The inescapable truth is that our people are solidly behind our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his quest for Biafra.

"Had IPOB mobilized our women to storm Enugu, the entire metropolis would not have contained our angry mothers," IPOB said.
