He maintained that Kanu is destroying the Southeast with his mode of agitation.
Igbokwe recounted that founder of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Ralph Uwazurike never adopted violence in his agitation for Biafra.
He, however, lamented that “hell has been let loose” since Kanu took up the struggle.
The statement reads partly: “Chief Uwazurike struggled for Biafra with wisdom and decency. He did not carry arms, he did not harass or abuse anybody, he was not confrontational, he did not kill anybody, he was not calling names. He was tactically and diligently doing his thing without jeopardizing the businesses of his people.
“Today Nnamdi Kanu is in the saddle and hell has been let loose. Threats everywhere. Confusion everywhere, deaths and destruction everywhere. Can this continue? Can we allow this vacuum to continue? Why are Governors not speaking? Why are Igbo intelligentsia not speaking out? What of the Bishops, the University eggheads?
“Kanu is destroying and decimating the economy of Igboland. Today the bandits say they have power over life and death in Igboland. The bandits and Children of hate say they have banned me from coming to Igboland.
