IPOB is sponsored by looters – Lai Mohammed

Lai Mohammed

The Minister for Information and Culture Lai Mohammed has said the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is being sponsored by disgruntled people aiming to destabilize the Buhari-administration.

In a press conference on Sunday, the minister, according to PoliticsNGR, said the group is sponsored by “treasury looters” who wish to destabilize the country.

He said the group’s aim is to divert attention from the efforts of the Buhari-administration, and “obliterate” the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said:

Nigerians must understand that IPOB was not set up to fight for the right of anyone or group, but as a tool to destabilize the nation, divert attention from the efforts of the Buhari Administration and obliterate the laudable achievements of the Government.

IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the Politically Disgruntled and the Treasury Looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.

If this is coincidental, then that coincidence is uncanny, at the least. Remember that Nnamdi Kanu, who led a protest at the Nigeria House in London against Boko Haram insurgency and in support of Nigeria’s unity, under the Jonathan Administration, has suddenly metamorphosed into an IPOB monster who will rather set the nation ablaze.

He added that, thankfully, IPOB has failed in its goal. He said if not for the military’s “quick and decisive” intervention, the group could have set the country on fire.

Thankfully, IPOB has failed in its evil machinations. The good people of Nigeria have seen beyond those cheap tactics and have avoided being incited against one another. We must remain vigilant and resolute. We must all say no to the incendiary and divisive tendencies of IPOB and its cohorts.

But for (the military’s) quick and decisive intervention, IPOB could have set the nation on fire. Thanks to the decisiveness of the military, today the Governors of the states in the South east have wisely proscribed IPOB.

    Boko Haram is also sponsored by looters from the North and prominent northern leaders. The deceit, nepotism, dubious behavior of northerners is alarming.
    Lai Mohammed is known to be an untrustworthy and dishonest person, he’s lied numerous times to be taken seriously. Infact, Buhari’s administration will go down in history as the least transparent administration. It’s been lies after the other and cover up.

    APC has No single understanding of governance! Once you criticize them they cheaply call you a looter.
    This is the reason they continue to fail woefully and lead dispassionately.
    So the IPOB followers were all employed by POD? those home and abroad? Isn’t lier Muhammed old enough to know that Igbos have a mind of their own? That they rather die for what they believe rather than what their elder/politician says.
    APC tufia!!! Politics of senile and obscure old folks.

    @ seriously and nene+ you spoke my mind.
    APC looters sponsored Boko Haram to discredit Jonathan’s administration. ….I hope Liar Mohammed agrees.
    FACTS – senile old men went ‘comatose ‘ for the first 6 months of this administration, the nation’s economy was adrift, recession hit the sky and thousands lost their jobs in droves. Liar Mohammed is talking about some group trying to divert attention from APC-led government achievement. WHAT ACHIEVEMENT, Liar?
