Uzodinma- The Executive Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has issued out a warning statement to the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, warning him and members of IPOB to stay clear of Imo State.
This was said to be coming after Nnamdi Kanu’s Radio speech on Wednesday evening at the Radio Biafra where he frowned at the manner Gov Uzodinma flooded Owerri, the state capital with the Nigerian Police and Military which he tagged “Operation show of force” ahead of Nigeria At 60 Independence Day celebration.
Kanu used the platform to call on his followers, especially those from Imo State never to refer Hope Uzodinma as a governor, claiming that nobody voted him into power that Uzodinma should be referred to as Hausa Fulani Supreme Court Administrator.
He also threatened that if anything should happen to any Imo citizen, that he will set the whole of Owerri ablaze.
However, Gov Uzodinma replied in a meaningful manner that Nnamdi Kanu should stop mentioning his name in his Radio Biafra as he has no business whatsoever to do with him, moreover he doesn’t want to see IPOB or anyone with a Biafran flag in Imo State again.
According to him, “My attention has been drawn to a broadcast made by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday evening where he threatened to burn down the state capital for reasons best known to him.
“Nnamdi Kanu should know that Nigeria is a Sovereign nation and there’s nothing both he and his followers can do to thwart it.
“The world can now see the type of person clamoring for freedom and at the same time threatening to kill the people he wants to protect. I hereby call on the Inspector General of Police and President Muhammadu Buhari to hold Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB responsible for any damage on the state capital.”
