The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, Worldwide, on Friday said that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has fraustrated and killed the political ambition of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
The continued massacre of innocent Igbo residents in Oyigbo, Rivers State by soldiers, which OYC see as a threat to South East, South South relationship is believed will be haunting the governor.
According to the group, the unabating killings of the Igbo in Rivers State is a political eyesore that will surely be used as a tool to haunt Wike’s future political ambition.
“Nnamdi Kanu is a messenger and a pawn in the hands of Northeast and Yoruba politicians, carefully drafted to destabilize South East and South South states, to upset upcoming presidential aspirants from the two political zones ahead of buildups of 2023,” OYC claimed.
The youth group believes that while other the Governors in the South East and South South managed the crisis and civil disobedience with maturity and wisdom, Governor Wike was caught up in the allegedly grand conspiracy designed by some politicians, using Kanu.
“Governor Wike should be bold enough to clarify most of the allegations levelled against him by IPOB leader, especially that he [Kanu] made him Governor, and he should quickly tender unreserved apology to his kinsmen [Igbos] over the mistakes of Obigbo in other to revert to his role as defacto opposition leader.
“If he relies on the deceptive rhetoric of a few circle of Igbo leaders that only values his pockets, definitely he will never escape the dent and consequences of the Obigbo massacres in the future as the Chief Security officer of Rivers State, as history might be unkind to him,” the OYC said.
