The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has issued a warning to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu over his recent utterances against Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark..
The Ijaw group gave the warning to Nnamdi Kanu while addressing journalists in Warri, Delta state. The group said that it was naive and callous for someone to address Chief Clark as a slave.
The group stated that Edwin Clark was only cautioning Kanu not to further marginalize the Igbo in the scheme of things by boycotting the November governorship election in Anambra state.
Pereotubo said Clark’s calling for the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu was wise counsel in order to stop the move of trying to deny the political rights of the Anambra people.
He also said:“We, the Ijaw, have what it takes to liberate ourselves and do not need help from IPOB.
“It was one single Ijaw man, Major Jasper Adaka Boro, that stopped the invading Biafran soldiers from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and chased them back.”
Pereotubo asked Kanu to study the history of the civil war and the geography of the South-East and exert his effort in liberating the Igbo people.
