The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has attacked former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, calling him a hypocrite and a selfish political fraudster.
IPOB, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Emma Powerful on Wednesday said the attention of the group had been drawn to the laughable, disgraceful and unguarded statements coming from Okorocha claiming how IPOB operated and convinced youths in the region.
It said Okorocha tried everything he could as governor of Imo State to stop IPOB which he failed and that now he had started dancing like a mad man by including IPOB in his infamous statement he was using to deceive the gullible minds in the state thinking he could be allowed to use IPOB for political gains.
“Okorocha was one of the most unfortunate things that have happened to Imo State. His infamous administration as Imo governor is better forgotten. Nigerians know him for whom he is; a hypocrite and selfish political fraudster. He should not play his evil politics close to IPOB.
“Okorocha collected many lands belonging to the people of Imo State by force, converted same into his personal property because he was running Imo State as a private estate,” IPOB said.
The group added that his atrocities in Imo State were pursuing him and his families, including his son-in-law Uche Nwosu as he could not advise his father in law to allow people their ancestral lands and homes.
“These will continue to hunt them till eternity
“Okorocha started this ranting during the jamboree declaration he did in Abuja and mentioned IPOB to appeal to his gullible audience. Since he has decided to use IPOB as a campaign slogan, let him prepare well!
“Okorocha arrested our women in Imo State thinking he can break the spirit of IPOB followers. The present administration in Imo State collected people’s lands he took from them by force and handed back to the owners since then Okorocha hasn’t been himself.
He started sponsoring unknown gunmen and cannibalism in the entire region but we will soon expose him,” the group alleged
