It went further to caution Miyetti Allah, noting that the group’s statement is capable of tearing the nation apart.
Reacting, Kanu in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, said: “For years IPOB warned, screamed and worked tirelessly hard to let the whole world understand what is happening and about to happen but I was ignored, insulted, spat at and ridiculed.
“This is what happens when cowards are in charge.”
