The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Aloy Ejimakor, challenged the governors of the south-east to convince the Igbo not to be part of the conspiracy of Operation Python Dance 2017 in which many were killed.
Ejimakor, who is also a lawyer for the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, stated this in his open letter to governors entitled “Python Dance: an open letter to the governors of the south-east”, and published Monday in Umuahia, Abia.
He insisted that governors should return to the dialogue they had with Kanu in 2017.
The lawyer lamented that even though it was clear that the dialogue was yielding desired results, “they unilaterally and summarily ended and made it worse by resorting to the proscription that stigmatised the Igbo people.
“The proscription also watered the ground for the various unconstitutional acts against the Igbo that ensued, including the declaration that millions of unarmed southeasterners were terrorists.”
Ejimakor also listed ways in which the governors, apart from Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha, could absolve themselves.
Specifically, the lawyer added that the governors should gather together and de-proscribe IPOB, as they did in September 2017 and apologise to Ndigbo for hurriedly resorting to an action that was “wrong and dangerous in all of its ramifications.”
