Concise News reports that the group says the tactics of diverting the attention away from the defence of its land employed by alleged traitors and caliphate slaves in their midst should not be allowed to happen again.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful in a statement alleges that the planned and well executed coordinated attack on Obigbo by Fulani terrorists and the murder of Prince Orubum Worenwu by Fulani Nigerian army last night (Wednesday) was condemnable by all reasonable persons.

2. What’ll Happen To Nigeria If South-South Agrees To Join Struggle- Gov. Okowa

The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa says Nigeria will divide should the South-South region the struggle for the actualisation of the Biafra Republic.

Concise News reports that Okowa made this statement on Thursday at the Niger Delta Peace and Security Summit held in Koko, Warri North Local Government Area.

“Nigeria will divide the very day the South-South agrees to join Biafra,” Governor Okowa declares.

Governor Okowa, who was represented at the occasion by his Executive Assistant/Directorate of Orientation, Barr. Eugene. A. Uzum, says some part of Nigeria are being oppressed just as he warns that peace may continue to elude the nation.

According to him, until the people in the South-South unite, they cannot move forward.

3. Igbos In Canada Lambasts Gov. Umahi For Naming State Institute After Buratai

The Igbo Canadian Community Association (ICCA/Umunna), has condemned the naming of the newly-established Institute for Peace and Strategic Studies of the Ebonyi State University after the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen Tukur Buratai.

Concise News reports that ICCA describes the approval given by the Ebonyi State Government to name the newly established institute after Buratai as “a disgraceful and ill-advised decision that spits on the graves of Nigerians who have been killed by the army under Buratai”.

Recall that Col. Sagir Musa, the Army spokesman, had in a statement, quoted the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Chigozie Egbu, as saying the university was naming its newly-established Institute for Peace and Strategic Studies after the Chief of Army Staff, for his selfless service to the nation and humanity.

According to Musa, the Vice Chancellor states this when he led a team from the university on a courtesy visit to Buratai in Abuja recently.

The VC, during the visit, disclosed that the state governor and the State Executive Council had approved that the institute be named “Lt.-Gen. Tukur Yusufu Buratai Institute for Peace and Strategic Studies”.

However, the President of the socio-cultural and political group, Chief Ugochukwu Okoro, insists that the Army failed in its duties under Buratai.

A statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the group, Ahaoma Kanu, reads: “It is incomprehensible and unconscionable that a serving governor will take the very inhumane decision to name a building after a man whose hands are dripping with the blood of innocent Nigerians killed in broad daylight by Nigeria Army soldiers under the command of a despicable officer like Buratai who not only has blood on his hands but pungently oozes of corruption and has failed in his duties as the Chief of Army Staff as his tenure can only be described as a total failure.

Governor Dave Umahi has shown, by his decision to solely select Buratai, his short-sightedness in selecting honourable Nigerians dead or alive that would have been more befitting to wear the honour of selfless service to humanity more appropriately.”
