”Withdraw soldiers or risk prosecution in ICC” INC tells Wike
The Igbo National Council has warned the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike to withdraw troops from his state within 72 hours or risk being dragged to the International Criminal Court.
In a press statement signed by INC National President, Chilos Godsent, and the Secretary-General, Zulu Ofoelu, the group noted that Wike’s reasons for unleashing the army on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the area are for his purported 2023 ambition.
Governor Wike had earlier said he did not regret his actions, meanwhile, Obigbo Local Government Area has become a hunting ground where scores of innocent people are gunned down at will by the Nigerian army.
INC statement reads, “We have noted the treacherous broadcast by Wike regarding the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Rivers State and concluded that Wike is dancing ‘Surugede’ and will soon be disappointed.
”We have done the detailed analysis of the treacherous and his unholy romance with the blood thirsty murderous Nigerian soldiers whom he commissioned to massacre the Obigbo residents.
”Intelligence available to the Igbo National Council shows that the alliance of Nyesom Wike with Nigerian soldiers was triggered by his inordinate desperate ambition to vie for vice president in 2023 presidential race.
”The script is that Wike must show to the Jihadists that he has the capacity and willingness to attack, and try to exterminate the Igbo race in Rivers State as condition to get the support of the caliphate.”
”The Igbo National Council, therefore, wishes to advise Wike to go back to school to read history in order to be clearheaded of what the outcome of his new alliance will be in 2023. When they finish using him they will dump him like they dumped others.
”Finally, the INC, therefore, calls on Wike to immediately recall those bloodthirsty killer gangs of the Nigerian soldiers that are rampaging in Obigbo, killing innocent harmless Nigerians while Boko Haram is busy sacking many communities in the Northern Nigerian states”.
