Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has chastised the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, for imposing a ban on the Nigerian national anthem across the zone.
The IPOB had outlawed the Nigerian National Anthem and the consumption of non-native cows in its New Year message.
The Ohanaeze Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, issued a statement on Wednesday cautioning that such an order would bode death for the people of the region.

The ruling, according to the Ohanaeze scribe, “would have an impact on ongoing diplomatic efforts to liberate Nnamdi Kanu.” Instead, the FG might wreak havoc in the South-East.
He said: “This order is also nonetheless destructive to the campaign for the Igbo presidency in 2023 and will give birth to avoidable military raids on all public schools in Southeastern Nigeria, with the ongoing ‘Operation Golden Dawn’.”
“We cannot afford to mislead and misinform our pupils into trending into paths that will attract grave consequences for Ndigbo.

“The recent security challenges in South-eastern Nigeria are created by killer herdsmen masquerading as cattlemen to perpetrate heinous onslaught against our local communities.
“The enforcement of the ban on consumption of Fulani cattle should be a protest against unhealthy and disease-infested cows being sold to Ndigbo,” he noted.
