A Coalition of Igbo groups have declared support for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu, on Sunday finally opened up, since he resurfaced in Jerusalem, Israel, last week.
The groups, in a communique after their meeting in Abakiliki, the Ebonyi State capital, said they would mobilize one million Igbos to receive the IPOB leader upon his return to Nigeria.
The communique was signed by Mazi Alex Okemiri, National President, World Igbo Youth Congress, Dr Helen ogbonnaya, National leader, South East Women Professionals and Mr Chidera Utucha, President Igbo Students Forum.
They also passed a vote of confidence on the Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro-led Ohanaeze Youth Council.
It read, “a coalition of Igbo Youth groups met in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, and passed a vote of confidence on fearless and bold leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths led by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, for their uncompromising stand on Igbo issues and urge them never to relent to give purposeful leadership to Igbo Youths.
“We warn those suspended and expelled exco of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths, especially one Radiographer from Isuochi, claiming to be a medical doctor and one chairman of wheelbarrow pushers in Onitsha, for their continuous and unsuccessful attempts to cast aspersions on the credible leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide have been uncovered.
“Ndigbo are aware of their desperate attempts to cause confusion and create artificial problems in Igbo Land. We are aware of their secret meeting with a South West Presidential Candidate of one of the newly political parties, where they were mobilised to cause confusion in South East and use unscrupulous means to ensure Southeast is divided in 2019.
“We know those who we will hold responsible if there is any assassination attempt on the life of President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, as they have tried in vain even in the past through auto accident.
“We applaud Nnamdi Kanu for being fearless and we are ready to roll out our drums to receive him as returns. We will mobilize 1 million youths and women to receive him.”
