Must Read : Abia state house of assembly says IPOB risked the life of millions of Igbo living in the north

Speaking with Vanguard newspapers, Abia state house of
assembly speaker, Chikwendu Kalu has unequivocally condemned the actions
of IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kalu saying their actions put over ten
million Igbo lives at risk. He also disclosed that the Igbo quit notice
was taken seriously as those who issued it were not speaking the mind of
northern elders.  Read below…
Were you troubled over the recent IPOB/army clash in Abia that kept the state in the news for weeks?
Yes I was worried but I thank God for what He was able to
use the governor to achieve during that period. What saved the situation
was the curfew he imposed when the military came and that calmed the
situation. But let me point out that the agitation on the part of Nnamdi
Kanu was not done within the ambit of the law. If you have any
grievance, it is incumbent on you to explore all legal avenues to
redress it. It is not something you begin to militarize the environment
to achieve. That is exactly what happened. Immediately after the curfew
was imposed, what the House did was to condemn Kanu and adopted the
position of the South-East governors by proscribing IPOB. Let me quickly
point out, the young man possibly didn’t know that as at the time he
was doing those things, 11.6million Igbos live outside Abia. They live
in all states of the north and if anything had happened to the few
northerners that were in Abia, those 11.6million Igbos may have come to
harm.
I am sure you would have condemned the quit notice given by some northern youths to Igbos too?

In fact, I did not take the quit notice seriously. I read that those
people were not speaking the minds of the elders of the North.
