  1. Comment:The federal government under PMB hav proved to all that it is anti Igbo. How can one tell me that an organisation (IPOB) that is non violent has been Proscribed and tagged a terrorist organisation while the MACBAN and the fulani Cow men are going around the country killing and destroying properties, yet the federal government did not see anything wrong with them. Too bad.
