​A former Governor of Imo State, Dr. Ikedi Ohakim, has warned Igbo leaders of the dangers of tagging the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) a kidnapping organization.

Ohakim, the governorship candidate of Accord Party in Imo State during the last elections, made the statement in response to questions from journalists on Thursday, after a town hall meeting in Owerri, the state capital.

A statement by Collins Ughalaa, Chief Press Secretary to Ohakim, quoted the former governor as saying: “While I am not a member of the IPOB and thus unqualified to hold brief for the organization, I make bold to state that it is the height of recklessness and insensitivity to publicly accuse the IPOB or anybody for that matter of being a kidnapper, especially in this case – of plotting to kidnap and kill top Igbo political leaders.

“Such a reckless and weighty accusation should not be bandied lightly as it carries the potential to yet again make the IPOB the target of another lethal and extrajudicial security operations and portray its members and leaders in more bad light”.

Recall that the government of Ebonyi state under the leadership of Engr Dave Umahi had a few days ago proscribed IPOB in the state after declaring that the group is a terrorist organisation recognised as such by our laws.
