IPOB and Ohaneze reconcile their differences

All good that ends well as the Pan Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo and the separatist Igbo group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have made peace and have agreed to work together so as to achieve their common purpose for the good of Igbos.

Report has it that the groups met at the home of a former first republic Aviation Minister, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi in Ukpor, Nnewi South local government of Anambra state.

It is worthy to note that both groups have had disagreements in the past which resulted in verbal attacks between their members, with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu calling on his members to attack the leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr. Nnia Nwodo, anywhere he is seen.

Chief Amaechi who met with the two groups described the rivalry as unnecessary as they were both working for the good of Igbo people.

He said, he is displeased with what he has seen and read in the newspapers about Kanu giving orders for the stoning of Chief Nwodo.

He ended by saying that he is happy that even before the peace meeting was held that Kanu had retracted the statement. He, therefore, appealed to Nwodo to accept the retraction and get it off his mind as IPOB has agreed to work with them.

“The two bodies must realize that it is the same battle they are fighting, which is marginalization, killings and denial of the Federal Government to develop South East and Igbo land in general though in different ways.

IPOB was represented by Barr Aloy Ejimakor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu who said he was at the meeting with the permission and instructions of his client, just as he thanked Chief Amaechi for standing on the part of resolution to see that peace is restored.

The Anambra State President of the body, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, stood in for Ohaneze Ndigbo, to accept and endorsed all that was agreed in the communique.

He ended by saying that, “Those who thought their fences are fallen will know that the fences are much stronger than they thought.”
