Below is the governor’s post as shared on facebook, titled REVELATION! NDI ANAMBRA WE MUST TAKE BACK OUR LAND FROM CRIMINALS MASQUERADING AS BIAFRAN AGITATORS
We can’t allow criminals; kidnappers, arm robbers, extortionist to run us out of our beloved state. Could you imagine that in places like Ihiala, Nnewi South and parts of Aguata people have to pay to these hoodlums to be able to have their title taking, marriage ceremony, burial and other events in the village.
They collect daily, weekly and monthly tolls from our poor traders in villages. They snatch peoples cars and keep them in their hideouts waiting for buyers. They kidnap people and threaten others with kidnaps to get them to pay. It is entirely criminal syndicates operating therein, turning the entire Anambra south to their captured entity and are likely to advance unless we rise up to collectively smoke them out.
You will need to see some of the vehicles belonging to Ndi Anambra they snatched from their respective owners. They survive by also extorting the locals while masquerading as Biafran freedom fighters yet in disobedience to every order issued by recognized agitators! There is actually more to this new lucrative blood business than the general public know.
