Governor Nyesom Wike has said that he supports the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in the South-East but does not endorse the violence.

Wike, in a recent interview with Channels TV disclosed that he agrees with the agitations but not the violence.

“I support the agitations in the South-East, whether anybody likes it or not, I do,”

“We should sit down at the round table and discuss it.”

“But again what do I do wrong when you have not gone to say ‘bomb everything there.’ I am a governor and you are telling me what has never happened and I should accept? Do you need to kill everybody in my area simply for me to say I am with you? And I say no, I won’t do that.”

He added that there was a time Nnamdi Kanu praised him adding that the group was not a threat to him.

“Why will they be a threat to me? It is because of the division in this country today that we have never had this country being divided this way.”

“There came a time IPOB was singing praises about Wike. This Nnamdi Kanu was singing praises (that) Wike is our son.”
