Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are not happy.

This is so because Igbo leader, John Nwodo has decided to host a debate on restructuring at the practice pitch of National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

The proscribed group have therefore condemned the move.

In a statement signed and issued to pressmen in Enugu by the Media and Publicity secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, the group said, “Having lost credibility all over Igboland for his serial betrayal and blood stained hands, John Nnia Nwodo has run to Lagos, the practice pitch of the National Stadium Surulere Lagos to relaunch his tattered image as Igbo leader."

"If he was indeed the leader of Igbos, what is he doing convening a crucial meeting about Ndigbo in Lagos? Lagos is Yoruba land not Igbo land.

“Afenifere never organised any serious gathering outside Yoruba land, so why must Chief Nwodo run to Yoruba territory to conduct his restructuring debate?

"Is it because Igbo people are firmly behind IPOB quest for total Biafra independence, not his failed restructuring agenda? Or is it because he knows nobody will attend his hypocritical sham gathering of traitors anywhere on Igbo soil? We are urging all Biafrans, especially those of Igbo extraction to boycott this Aso Rock-sponsored gathering in Lagos.”

The group advised that all issues concerning Igbo should be conducted in Igbo land, pointing out that Arewa Consultative Forum holds all their activities in Northern Nigeria and Afenifere conducts their activities in Yoruba land.
