''I am sure most of us would have seen the continuous threat to my life and the life of those of us who do not agree with the philosophy of IPOB and ESN bandits on Biafra agitation via armed struggle…
"…The bandits and Children of hate say they have banned me from coming to Igboland. The latest threat is that I should prepare to die. This is unacceptable in the 21st Century…’’

Igbokwe questioned why leaders and prominent people in Igbo land were not openly condemning the activities of the secessionists.

He pointed out that Chief Uwazurike struggled for Biafra without resorting to arms struggle like IPOB's leader Nnamdi Kanu.

Meanwhile, a report by the Daily Sun newspaper indicates that there is apprehension within the ranks of IPOB following the leadership vacuum created by the absence of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to the report, Kanu’s continued detention by the Department of State Services (DSS), has caused a seeming leadership crisis in the organization.

Kanu was said to be fully in control and members, deputies and assistants took orders directly from him or his broadcasts on Radio Biafra.
