According to the source, IPOB members were embarrassed and surprised when they heard and read the said statement from media aide to Ohanaeze President General, Nnia Nwodo, against their agreement of confidentiality.
‘ʼWe have realized that everyone is needed in the struggle and that is why we opened up channels of discussion, despite the betrayal by Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership, we are still open and ready for discussion but must be assured such mutual agreements would be duly respected and upheld,” the source said.
