Recently, IPOB have received some calculated attacks from every angle. Attacks coming from the government sponsored groups claiming to be fighting for Biafra, but whose true intent is to have IPOB disorganized and disrupted. Others are those working so hard to play people into a state squabble. ‘Enugu is better than Abia’ bandwagon. ‘Why was Ike Ekweremadu given IPOB treatment, and nothing happened to Abia governor?’. ‘Why did Nnia Nwodo, an Enugu indigene asked to be stoned, and nothing done to Abia governor?’. Some have even asked MNK to build roads in Aba. These individuals think it is about state. They think IPOB will play that game with them.
There have been series of attacks on IPOB. Apart from the ones coming from Nigeria government, some of our brothers have also unleashed many attacks on IPOB. There was a time the so-called (SOJ) were on rampage. They published all sorts of lies against IPOB. They were engineered by some elements suspended from IPOB. But IPOB defeated them all.
I really don’t know how these ladies in USA calling themselves daughters of Truth think they can possibly destroy IPOB. The women had wanted to create a Bank of Biafra in USA, which IPOB leadership asked they should stop. IPOB is of the view that Biafra is still under struggle and shouldn’t be talking about establishing Bank at the moment. The women took offence to this, insulted IPOB and vowed they must have their way. IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu suspended them and asked every IPOB member to disassociate themselves from the said bank.
Some days ago, these ladies interviewed Dr Clifford Iroanya, where he admitted that there was an attempt to have Mazi Nnamdi Kanu deposed while in prison. He made it appear that he knows nothing about that devilish suggestion until three years after. According to him, one certain Nnorom visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu inside DSS dungeon and suggested that since he has been arrested, that he MNK should be dethroned and an interim government formed. He then suggested that the only person worthy enough to head the interim government is no other person than Dr Clifford Iroanya. This move is from the pit of hell. It was a move made to steal IPOB structure and hand it over to the Nigeria government. If not, why should they want to depose a structure with Deputy Leader?
I don’t know what you make out of this, but all I see is a Palace coup orchestrated by Dr Clifford Iroanya to change the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and take over the mantle of leadership to himself. Had they succeeded, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu would have been forgotten in prison and his case will lose publicity.
Don’t forget that with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in prison, IPOB still have Deputy Leader who ought to have taken charge. This means that there was no power or leadership vacuum in IPOB even with the leader in prison. Where the leader is not around, the Deputy stands in for him. But, Dr Iroanya never regarded Uche Mefor as his Deputy Leader; reason he wanted him replaced so badly. He saw himself as a superior who should not be answerable to Uche Mefor. Tell me how IPOB will get people’s sentiments if the imprisoned leader got deposed simply because he is in prison. Will media say, ‘former IPOB Leader in prison’? Let me say it once again, if you are an IPOB member, and you are not loyal to both IPOB Leader and Deputy Leader, then you are not on the right track.
Dr Clifford Iroanya is intelligent and crafty; but not smart. He thinks he can play on the minds of the people using his half-truths and subtle intimidation. He brags how he sued people and won and how he will sue more people.
He comes out on video to speak as if he is speaking in defense of IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. He is simply playing a mind game. And only the gullible will take him serious. Iroanya is not alone in this game. They are on a mission to divide IPOB and end the agitation.
Iroanya has accused Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of using IPOB funds for his family. Iroanya said Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was arrested with ladies in a hotel in Lagos. This is exactly the narrative of DSS with the photoshopped pictures they used to back their lies up. They now believe DSS and their lies. This was also the method used by SOJ when they used to be active online. To spite IPOB, he said he will call out the names of fellow comrades involved in secret meetings with IPOB, and yet he is pontificating himself as a lover of Biafra.
These people are not friends of Biafra. They are on a mission. Don’t let your sentiments give in to their ugly mischief.
