Ohakim declines to condemn IPOB for attack on his convoy

Must read

A former governor of Imo, Ikedi Ohakim has said the assailants that attacked his convoy on Monday evening in the state are “beyond” members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Daily Review earlier reported that Ohakim escaped death by a whisker when gunmen opened fire on his convoy at Oriagu, Ehime Mbano Local Government Area (LGA) of the state while the ex-governor was returning from a visit.

Although he was saved by his bullet-proof vehicle, four security personnel lost their lives in the attack.

“This goes beyond the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), I must say. These are professionals, well-trained. They are not ordinary people. They were driving a blue colour BMW 5-series car, brand new. They came to kill me.

“I don’t know what this is all about. It is becoming terrible. Won’t people come home again? Are we going to stay in Owerri and Abuja permanently without coming back to our communities?” Vanguard quotes the former governor as saying.
