IPOB members are poorly educated – Rochas Okorocha
Senator Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo state, has declared that members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are poorly educated children, not terrorists.
Okorocha made the remark to State House Correspondents on Thursday, February 3, just after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Okorocha made the remark in response to the crisis in the southeast, which was sparked by agitations.
The senator representing Imo West Senatorial District claimed that the problems in the region, particularly in his home state of Imo, were due to weak leadership.
“There was no need to have handled the IPOB matter the way it was handled. Today they have turned out to be terrorists. But for me, I don’t see them as terrorists. I see them as children who have not been properly educated on the happenings,” Okorocha said.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
