A secessionist group known as Biafra Zionists Federation have given the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma two weeks ultimatum to vacate office.
Recall that Hope Uzodinma came to power following a supreme court ruling on 14th of January that sacked immediate past governor Emeka Ihedioha.
The group who gave a warning in a statement released on Tuesday by their president, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka, faulted Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka’s prophesy, stressing that “God deals with facts not hearsay”.
The statement claimed that Uzodinma is “an impostor who will never enjoy the support of Imo people owing to lack of legitimacy.”
“We have watched with a keen interest in developments in Imo State and have now come out to make our stand known.”
“Our position is that a man who could not win even one local government area cannot preside over the affairs of Imo people”.
Onwuka added that though the Zionists are Biafrans they would not fold their hands and watch the destiny of their people destroyed.
He further stated that “Imo State is part of Biafra land and for that reason, there is no way an impostor will come from nowhere to govern them. What is happening in Imo State affects every Igbo man.”
“They clearly chose their governor through the ballot, so we are at a loss on how someone will jump from 4th to 1st position through the magic calculation of the court.”
“We have it on good authority that Uzodinma was brought in as part of the game plan to actualize the Islamization and Ruga agenda, but it will not stand.”
“He has two weeks to vacate that seat and allow the rightful occupier, Emeka Ihedioha serve out his term.”
He also warned lawmakers in the state that they are going to pay heavily for defecting to the All Progressives Congress. He condemned the recent arrest of some of his members in Enugu, describing the action of the police as provocative.
