- An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain has warned the Igbos against some wolves in sheep's clothing
- Sam Nkire said some of the people claiming to be friends of the Igbos are only jealous of them
- He also warned against "enemies of the southeast region who want to turn the Igboland into a battle field"
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sam Nkire, has warned people from the southeast region to be mindful of some wolves in sheep's clothing.
Nkire advised Igbos not to allow some 'sympathizers' to lure them into taking up arms in defence of Biafra.
The politician said it is strange to hear some prominent Nigerians claiming to love the Igbos more than they (Igbos) love themselves.
Nkire said: “Igbos don’t need outsiders to tell them before they know they are being cheated in Nigeria."
Describing some of the Nigerians as wolves in sheep clothing, Nkire said, enemies of the southeast region want to turn the Igboland into a battle field.
He said some of those who have suddenly claimed to be friends of the Igbos are only jealous of the Igbo race and are up to destroy it.
He said: "Igbos did not need to destroy their livelihood every fifty years, only to build it up; and destroy it yet again, only to start all over again."
Nkire further called on the Igbo people to be patient, saying that there is an unwritten agreement across the political space that an Igbo man will become the next president of Nigeria after the north completes its 8 years tenure.
"Anyone who wishes to secede from any part of Nigeria must factor in the possibility of playing with his or her own blood," Nkire said.
