Peter Obi Questions Government For Declaring IPOB A Terrorist Organization

Presidential candidate of The Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has questioned the rational in declaring the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB a terrorist group by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

In an interview with Channels Television today, October 5, Peter Obi said that  IPOB members live around him and do not constitute a threat to the country.

“The only thing I disagree with is naming IPOB terrorist; they are not terrorists. “Those who took the decision may have information that I don’t have.

“I stay in Onitsha, and I can tell you that they are people. I pass them on the road every day.

“I meet and live with them; in fact, I usually see people gathering, and I have never had the sense of threat or molestation from them, even when they gather,” he said.

The Nigerian government had long proscribed IPOB, declaring it a terrorist organization for pursuing the creation of Republic of Biafra out the Nigerian state, and doing so violently.
