We didn’t accuse FG of killing IPOB members – S’East govs

The South-East Governors’ Forum has dismissed as untrue, reports that it accused the Federal Government of killing members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Chairman of the forum, Engr Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Emmanuel Uzor, described the report as the figment of the writer’s imagination.

He said the report was intended to embarrass the Forum and bring confusion between the governors and the Federal government, to thwart the peace processes initiated with IPOB.

“The originators of the falsehood are trying to sabotage the process of moving the zone forward and achieve lasting peace in it,” the Ebonyi governor said.

He noted that although it was the Forum’s responsibility to protect the people’s lives and property, including IPOB members, it should not be linked to politics.

Umahi said: “The writer and his paymasters, failed to appreciate the peace agreements reached between the governors’ forum and leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, during its last meeting in Enugu.

“The forum, therefore, wishes to assure the public that the communiqué raised during its last meeting with IPOB leadership still stands and anybody circulating any contrary report is Ndigbo’s real enemy.

“Such reports should, therefore, be disregarded as there was no such meeting against the federal government by the forum.”
