Former President, Goodluck Jonathan says it’s an impolite statement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed to point fingers on the opposition of sponsoring the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The group has been in a close battle with Soldiers under ‘Operation Python Dance II’ in Umuahia, Abia State after they barricaded the road in order to prevent them from gaining access into IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s residence.
However, Jonathan stated on his Facebook page on Tuesday that Lai Muhammad should be mindful of his words and urged him to arrest sponsoring the activities of the group.
“The insinuations in the press conference given by Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Sunday, accusing the opposition of sponsoring the IPOB and the fact that he mentioned that Nnamdi Kanu preached Nigerian unity during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan is another clear indication that the present administration has not left propaganda mode for proper agenda mode two and a half
years into their tenure.
If the government, in which Lai Mohammed serves, knows which opposition members are sponsoring IPOB, then they should identify them, arrest them and then prosecute them.”
