IPOB: There’re Over 30 Separatist Groups In South-East – Abaribe






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has stated  that there are more than 30 separatist organisations in the South-East  aside from the Indigenous People of Biafra, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra.

He said this on Tuesday when he appeared on Channels Television Sunrise Daily.

Abaribe, who represents Abia South in the senate, stated the regime of President Buhari (retd.), might crush secessionist agitators but it would be problematic to crush the ideology until the government addresses the root cause of the problem and embrace dialogue.

The lawmaker regretted that the people of the South-East have been grossly marginalised and not treated fairly by the All Progressives Congress government.

Responding to a question on if he is an IPOB supporter, Abaribe said, “I am a supporter of the cries of our people against injustice…I stand with my people.



“One of the biggest problems that the media also has is that they tag everything IPOB in the South-East. You won’t believe that there are more than 30 different separatist organisations. IPOB, MASSOB, there are so many and each one of them come back to the same thing.”

“Why we are having separatist agitations everywhere in the country is that some people are unable to manage our diversity.”

Abaribe also stated that he does not regret standing as one of Kanu’s sureties in 2017 and said, “I will still stand surety because you feel that you are being unfairly treated”.
