The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi has faulted the Federal Government for proscribing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
According to Obi, IPOB is not a terrorist organization.
This is as the group has consistently stated that they are freedom fighters, not terrorists.
Recall the Nigerian government had proscribed IPOB following the agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
Despite the proscription, IPOB, and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had continued to push for the actualization of Biafra.
But, the separatist group had denied the terrorist tag by the Nigerian government.
However, Obi backed claims that members of the group are not terrorists.
Speaking with Channels Television, the presidential candidate said IPOB members around him do not constitute a threat to the country.
According to Obi: “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.”
