IPOB members not terrorists, I live with them – Peter Obi

The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi has downplayed claims that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is a terrorist organization.

Obi maintained that IPOB members are not terrorists.

The Nigerian government had proscribed IPOB following the agitation for the actualization of Biafra.

Despite the proscription, IPOB, and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had continued to push for the actualization of Biafra.

But, the separatist group had denied the terrorist tag by the Nigerian government.

However, Obi backed claims that members of the group are not terrorists.

Speaking with Channels Television, the presidential candidate said IPOB members around him do not constitute a threat to the country.

According to Obi: “The only thing I disagree with is naming IPOB terrorist; they are not terrorists. Those who took the decision may have information that I don’t have.

“I stay in Onitsha, and I can tell you that they are people I pass them on the road every day.

“I meet and live with them; in fact, I usually see people gathering, and I have never had the sense of threat or molestation from them, even when they gather.”
