Self-proclaimed leader of the Biafra de facto customary government, Asari Dokubo, has strongly condemned some Yoruba leaders siding with the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and cheering them on.
In a Facebook Live on Wednesday evening, monitored by Akelicious, Dokubo criticised IPOB’s violence, and asked southeast people take a cue from Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, who has never ordered the killing of anybody — unlike now-detained Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB.
He said despite separatist calls in the southwest, mindless killings are not going on there.
You come out and kill our people, and people are supporting you, and you are happy. Stupid idiots in Yorubaland are urging you to kill our people. Sunday Igboho never commanded anybody to be killed. Look at how the Yorubas are fooling you: those elderly buffoons and fools. Mischief-makers fooling you to destroy Igboland,” Dokubo said.
He added: “Why are they not disturbing Lagos because of Sunday Igboho (who is being detained)? They are saying ‘IPOB is the best thing’, ‘Nnamdi Kanu is the saviour’, who then is Sunday Igboho?
“Those stupid idiots demented Yoruba leaders. God (will) punish them and throw them into the pit of hell. They are urging you, fooling people to destroy our land. They are not destroying Lagos, Osogbo, and Ibadan, but they are telling you to destroy Igboland.”
Yoruba leaders actively and deeply involved in separatism include Professor Banji Akintoye and a former caretaker chairman of Ibarapa North Local Government Area, Omolewu Tunji Francis, popularly known as Janbele.
