Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has been asked to vacate the State House by the members of the Biafra Zionists Federation, following his victory in the Supreme court ruling.
On Wednesday, February 19, 2020, the members of the BZF delivered a statement that called for the now Imo State Governor, Uzodinma to quit the Imo State Government house by 9th day of March 2020.
News Nigeria understands that the pro-Biafra group stated that Senator Uzodinma must exit the Imo Government House for the removal of candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Emeka Ihedioha who was sacked by the Supreme Court.
Also, it was noted that the BZF had threatened to file a case against President Muhammadu Buhari and Service Chiefs before the International Criminal Court, ICC, over recent killings in the country.
News Nigeria recalls that some villagers in Delta State community were murdered and buried by some gunmen suspected to be herdsmen.
The self-acclaimed President of the BZF, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka while speaking in Enugu State pointed out that the killing of the 7 villagers would not be swept under the carpet.
He said, “the group received with shock the gruesome murder of the helpless villagers “and has perfected plans to take the matter to the ICC since the Muhammadu Buhari-led government is paying deaf ears to the atrocious activities of herdsmen.”
He further revealed that. “Onwuka alleged that the killings were no ordinary security issues but part of the game plan to hand over the Biafra territory to Islam by force.”
“How would one explain that 7 persons, including a 7-year-old child, will be murdered in cold blood without any trace?
“The question we are asking is- are these herdsmen spirits? How come they operate at will and none has ever been arrested? We want to make it clear that this will not go like other killings in the past; we are taking the case to the ICC where all those involved will be brought to book.”
Speaking on Uzodinma’s case, Onwuka claimed that his government lacked legitimacy.
“We have already communicated the development in Imo State to the United States and actions are being taken. Hope Uzodinma knows that he was not elected by the people, but was imposed on them by the Supreme Court as part of the game plan to foist Islamic agenda on us.
“But, we thank God that the US has taken interest in the matter; so, we are telling Uzodinma to vacate the Imo Government House before March 9. On that day, I shall be leading Emeka Ihedioha back to the Government House,” Onwuka boasted.”
