On Wednesday, the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, criticized the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for questioning Orji Uzor Kalu, the former Governor of Abia State, over his comment on the disappearance of the group’s leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The former governor who outrageously claimed that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu escaped Nigeria to London via Malaysia with no shred of evidence, was immediately faulted and seriously condemned by IPOB
Reacting to IPOB’s remarks on the former governor, Arewa Youths said IPOB has become irresponsible and lacks the common sense to come to terms with reality.
The head of Arewa, Shettima Yerima, on wednesday, wondered why IPOB would insult Kalu, who mediated on their behalf.
Yerima faulted the fact that the group could resort to name calling despite Kalu’s efforts in sustaining “relative peace” the country is currently enjoying.
Yerima stated, “A man like Kalu, who has frequently shuttled the North to discuss the safety of his people deserve more than appreciations.”
“If they couldn’t contain their pot of insults and decides to extensively extend it to even the ones sticking their neck on their behalf, It simply shows how irresponsible, ungrateful and unappreciative they can be.”
“I wonder the reason for such propaganda by IPOB. Even when they said Nnamdi Kanu’s father was missing, a doctor in Federal Medical Centre confirmed he slumped and was brought for treatment at Federal Medical Centre.”
