We’re Sitting On Keg Of Gunpowder, Negotiate With Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB – Gov Ikpeazu Advises FG



Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has stated that the government must engage Nnamdi Kanu and his group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ikpeazu stated that the conflict between the federal government, Kanu, and IPOB may be handled through diplomacy.


He did, however, warn that if the group did not engage, Nigeria would be sitting on a keg of gunpowder.

Ikpeazu told Sun that negotiations between the federal government and Kanu’s outfit would bring peace and justice to the Southeast.


Ikpeazu stated that part of IPOB’s protests are valid and should be heard.

“We must engage with IPOB,” he stated. Yes, we must find a mechanism to discuss the issues at hand.
These guys are not as evil as those in the North East or North West, who go to schools and grab the entire population of teachers and students, or who assault mosques and churches and abduct all the worshippers, and no one knows where they are until a ransom is paid.


“I believe that what these individuals in the South East are saying has some ideological heft to it.”
Even though it is illegal to take up arms against the state, there is something to be heard.

“There’s a message they’re attempting to convey in the process.” We need to generate confidence among ourselves rather than using words that we should not use as leaders.


“Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gunpowder, but there is a simple answer.”
