Abia Governor Ikpeazu Explains Why South East Govs Cannot Stop IPOB's Sit At Home Order..

Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has revealed why the South-East Governors are handicapped in moves to stop the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB from enforcing sit-at-home order in the region.

The Governor, who spoke in an interview with Vanguard in Abuja on Sunday, said they have limitations in determining the number of policemen to be deployed and the equipment to be used by the operatives.

“If you call governors the chief security officers of their states and they cannot determine the number of policemen they can deploy and the kind of equipment to use, then it becomes extremely difficult for governors to take control of security issues in the South East. The Southeast governors are handicapped but we are trying our best.

“That is why when IPOB gives a sit-at-home order, the governors are unable to counter effectively because they do not have control over Federal police, which are neither adequate nor well equipped to deal with security challenges”.

Governor Ikpeazu also recommended dialogue and negotiation as the best way to resolve the current face-off between the Federal Government and the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, stating that other means may stimulate more violence.

The governor who admitted that despite the issues raised against the secessionist who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, IPOB and his followers, said the agitators must be engaged in dialogue as a means of ending the lingering crisis.

“We must engage with IPOB. Yes, we must find a way to talk about the issues at stake. These people are not as bad as the ones in the Northeast or northwest who go to schools and seize the whole population of teachers and students or invade the mosques and churches and kidnap all the worshippers and nobody can find them until ransom is paid.

“I believe that there is some ideological sense in what these people in the Southeast are saying. There is something to listen to even though it is criminal to take up arms against the state. There is a message they are trying to pass in the process. We need confidence building among ourselves rather than use words that we should not use even as leaders. Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gunpowder but the solution is not too difficult to find.

“I regard Nnamdi Kanu as my citizen but not as leader of IPoB because I am the governor. I am prepared to engage to resolve the issue. I care about his welfare and I care that he should be tried in a just and fair way. I am happy that they want to bring justice to bear by looking at the allegations against him and trying him fair and square but I would not want him to be treated as if he was a convict when he has not been convicted. Not until otherwise, he is still my citizen and as his father it behoves on us to care for him after all the prodigal son had a father.

“The scenario in the Southeast appears as if we are running away from the foundation of solving the problem of IPOB but you must recognize the fact that the apparatus of security lies heavily on the federal government.

“The problem is further compounded by the fact that there is a proliferation of small arms in the hands of people who should not have them. We also have an ill-equipped, inadequate and underfunded police system in the land”.

    Then the Governors are not in charge 🀷‍♂️🀷‍♂️

  2. He's indirectly in support

    1. Dey there dey wallow in shame. No Igbo man will be happy at how Buhari has insulted us since he became President.

      He was the person that gave MNK the platform he is enjoying today, with many followers.

      In 2014, l despised this MNK cause l believe so much in "One Nigeria". He was able to show us the Fulani plans against Nigeria, and how to plan to forcefully take over Ancestral Lands of indigenous people.

      The governor was in support of what the "Terrorist Tag" against IPOB, why the sudden change of narrative?

      The Ebube Agu security outfit that was inaugurated after ESN, how far with it?

      This is part of the reason why lgbo's will never trust nor respect you.

      As for MNK, he is not as bad as ISA Fulani that was terrorising Benue people. Killing, raping and destroying farmlands. They should free him cause their propaganda of making foreign government to brand IPOB as Terrorist will never work.

      As usual, Qouta Systems will go Anonymous to reply me.

    2. Amara. I don't ve a blog id,who re u that I need to go anon to reply in the first place. Biko shift jor

    3. @Amarachi with the C
      the way you people attach importance to yourself in here baffles me😁😁😁😁
      What makes you think people re scared to reply you with their id? You gonna flog them if they do or what?

      The highest you can do is to become their anonymous attacker like most people do hereπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. He's indirectly in support

  4. U have spoken well ,Mr Governor. What is good for d geese is equally good for d gander. Don’t mind that saboteur that calls his name Joe Igbokwe. If Sheik Gumi can support bandits, kidnappers, ‘& terrorists, who are faceless, calling for MOU with them , d IPOBs should be listened to & not be treated as criminals.

  5. The man is saying the TRUTH. Are you going to drag residents out of their homes? They said they are not coming out the governors said COME OUT. People are afraid for their lives and hiding on their homes away from the prying eyes and guns of the Police and other law enforcement agents. See the other day in Owerri the Police caused a major accident by enforcing citizens to go on a one way route just because there was a convoy of politicians using the MAIN entrance. The governors would have to go push out people from their homes on any day a sit a home order by IPOB is announced. People are far too afraid to gamble with their lives so the government and IPOB must resolve this before Monday activities can be fully restored in Biafraland

    1. Nne a lot of people know this but they will want to twist the narrative the way it will suit "call a dog a bad name to hang it"
