Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Condemns the Action of Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha


The Indigenous People of Biafra has condemned the sacking of Commissioners and Local Government chairmen in the 27 council areas of Imo State by the state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, alleging that the action was because of the success of the sit-at-home order in the state.

In a press statement in Awka, Anambra State by the IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group said Okorocha had instructed his commissioners and council chiefs not to allow the order to take place in the state.

It said Okorocha’s objective was to please the powers that be in Abuja.

It added that to the surprise of the Imo governor, the exercise recorded huge success in Imo State, something the group said angered the governor and culminated in the sacking of the victims.
