The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused Yoruba politicians of attacking Igbos with political thugs and criminals in Lagos State.
IPOB made the remark while noting that it’s only trying to protect the interest of Igbos in Lagos State.
The spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, disclosed this in a statement he issued.
The statement reads partly: “We are aware that Yoruba politicians are using political thugs and criminals to attack Ndigbo in Lagos, but they will regret their actions soon.
“Ndigbo in Lagos should know that IPOB is not looking for popularity but only interested in protecting *ALL* Biafrans irrespective of their location in the world until Biafra is restored and beyond.”
Igbos in Lagos State have been subjected to several attacks by some thugs lately.
Markets majorly populated by Igbos have been targeted and burnt down.
The attacks started after the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, won the presidential election in Lagos State.
