Speaking in a chat with INDEPENDENT, Igbokwe while reacting to bail granted the IPOB leader said Igbo people are not interested in Biafra republic.
Describing the agitators as collection of illiterates who are wasting their time and energy, Igbokwe said the leaders of IPOB are only using the Biafra agitation to dupe gullible ones of their money.
"Now that he has been granted bail, he should just quietly go home and rest. We are not a candidate of Biafra. They are just dissipating their energy for nothing. I just hope he will just go home quietly and stop disturbing the peace of the country.
“We are not for Biafra. We can’t build Nigeria for others. The so-called Biafra is too small for us. Nigeria provides a big stage for us. We own this country. We are a major ethnic group in this country. How can you go for a small pond when you have Atlantic Ocean?"
