The former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, Prof. Chidi Odinkalu, has said that he receives threats from the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, every day.
IF AN AWOLOWO OR A BUHARI WERE TO ORDER THE CLOSURE OF MARKETS IN #IGBOLAND OR THAT THERE WILL BE NO ELECTIONS, IT WILL BE CALLED PERSECUTION. WHEN #IPOB DOES THE SAME, SOME #E_DIATS WILL COME HERE & TELL U IT’S LIBERATION.

The human rights lawyer expressed concern that if President Buhari had ordered the closure of markets or had directed that elections should not hold, such situation would have been tagged a persecution. But since is IPOB that is giving such directive, some ‘idiots’ are calling it liberation
“I received death threats everyday from IPOB to stop talking about the killings.
“If an Awolowo or a Buhari were to order the closure of markets in #Igboland or that there will be no elections, it will be called persecution. When #IPOB does the same, some #e_diats will come here & tell u it’s liberation.
“This is how #IPOB justifies its campaign of extermination of the #Igbos it promises to liberate. The irony of it all? The person providing this discursive poison is based in Israel not in #Nigeria. He is safe over there but wants all the ppl in SE liquidated” Odinkalu said.
He described the activities of the IPOB as nonsense. According to him, IPOB is disenfranchising Anambra people
He said, “For those still persuaded by the vacuous nonsense from the so-called #IPoB department of state, this is reality in Anambra State: #IPoB is forcing communities to take down campaign billboards & enforcing its msg of denying Anambra the #RightToVote by extreme violence”
