IPOB vows to attack Nwodo, others over restructuring summit
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that it would attack Ohanaeze Ndigbo during its summit billed to hold in Awka, the Anambra capital, on May 21.
The group said no amount of security mobilised to the venue would stop it from carrying out its threat.

A statement issued by the IPOB media and publicity secretary, Mr. Emma Powerful and made available to Journalists in Awka, stated that Nwodo and his leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo would be held responsible for whatever damage that accrues from the proposed summit.
IPOB had months back warned Ohanaeze Ndigbo to desist from holding any summit that would discuss restructuring of Nigeria anywhere in Igbo land as doing so would incur its wrath.
The group said its interest was rather a summit to discuss a referendum for Biafra, than a summit on restructuring.
The press release described the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo as traitors who allegedly want to celebrate their betrayal of Biafra’s freedom using the summit as cover.
“IPOB had since warned Nnia Nwodo and his collaborators in Ohanaeze not to bring their one Nigeria summit to the heartland of Biafra but they remain adamant. The only way this summit can hold is unless the heaven falls on the 21st of May.
“It seems Nnia Nwodo and his Ohanaeze Ndigbo don’t understand the language of liberty, we shall meet them head-on in Awka on the 21st at Ekwueme Square. They better bring enough squadron of their Fulani soldier friends as always to provide them protection and kill us all because the summit will not hold.
“We are urging all IPOB families to mobilize to storm not just Ekwueme Square but to saturate the whole of Anambra State and Awka from all directions on the 21st of May, 2018. Awka will be occupied from midnight of the 20th of May to 5pm on the 21st.
“We look forward to meeting Nnia Nwodo and his Fulani soldiers in Awka on the 21st of May 2018. They better come prepared,” the statement read.
