Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has reacted to the call to dethrone Nnamdi Kanu’s father over his son’s agitation saying there is distinction between the two of them.

The Cable reports that the governor who spoke after a meeting with vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo responded to question about whether the traditional ruler would be dethroned on Tuesday, September 19.

The governor said traditional rulers in the state have the leadership to deal with such matters.

He said: “I clearly separate Kanu from his father. The processes of handling traditional institutions are enshrined in the laws of our land.

“And traditional rulers who are members of our constituency have the leadership they will do the needful at the appropriate time. But for me, I think there is a clear division between Nnamdi Kanu and his father.”

He accused IPOB of attempting to set the country on fire, saying God used some instruments to keep the country as one.

Ikpeazu said the economy of Abia would suffer “if we make our kitchen the theater of Biafra”.

“Nigerians know that for some time now that this group called IPOB was agitating for a separate nation called Biafra and that the home state of the leader of that group happens to be Abia state."

“As expected, when such things happen there is an interface between some members of that group and the military, and the theater was Abia state. And some people attempted to hijack that event to conflagrate our country. To the glory of God the rest is history, we are still working to stabilise the fragile peace in the region. I thank God also for the instruments he used to be able to keep our country as one. We are humbled by the privileges.

“I will continue to protect the lives and property of my brothers and sisters irrespective of where they come from. You know that the mainstay of our economy in Abia state is trade and commerce and I do not think it will augur well for our economy.”

Meanwhile, Nigerian protesters took over some streets in London to kick against the invasion of the southeast by security agents under the Operation Python Dance.

The Nigerian army stormed the southeastern part of Nigeria in a bid to curtail the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Namdi Kanu.
