Biafra: Anambra Lawyers Declare War Against Kanu
It looks like not all Igbos are in full support of the agitation for Biafra.
One of such is a group of Igbo lawyers under the platform of Anambra State Lawyers in Defence of Democracy.
It accused Kanu and his IPOB of trying to cause anarchy in the country, calling on security operatives to deal decisively with the organization.
In a letter addressed to the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano and signed by its convener, Johnmary Jideobi, the lawyers said IPOB had introduced violence in the nation’s electoral process, with the threat to disrupt the November poll in Anambra state.
In the letter titled, ‘The 2017 Anambra State Governorship Election and the imperative of ending the impunity of anarchists before it is too late’, the lawyers said: “The leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has taken a decision and consequently issued a directive to the effect that elections would no longer hold in Biafraland.
“No doubt, both your humble self and the members of ASLADD are all Biafrans. To this extent, it is therefore correct to state that no one man or group can lay claim to being more Biafran than the others.
“The fulcrum of this urgent letter is to express the way we feel by the strident opposition mounted by the IPOB to the conduct of the 2017 governorship election in Anambra state.
“We have chosen to write you on this, principally because we are involved. We are involved because democracy has come under imminent threat in our beloved state.
“Only recently, the IPOB members invaded and desecrated St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Ekwulobia in Aguata Local Government Area, where Governor Obiano was to worship.
“It is important to point out that in every democracy, while the minority will always have their say, the majority will have their way. In every democracy, no one man has the monopoly of the knowledge of what is good for a people".
