“We are watching the body language of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi closely as they are the main saboteur against the South East producing the next President of Nigeria in 2023.
“But one thing is very sacrosanct and inevitable in 2023 which is that either the South East produces the next President of Nigeria or Biafra is upgraded by any means.
“2022 to 2023 will be the worst political exit for corrupt politicians in the country of Biafra because blood will be spilled. We carefully collect and monitor the names of these saboteurs.
“Those politicians who are working against Biafran restoration and who have now turned to working against the South East to produce the Nigerian President in 2023 should pull their hands out or within a month their heads will roll.
“We know that many of you work for Atiku Abubakar, Mohammed Bala, Bukola Saraki and Tambuwal in secret, now is the time to repent.
“We want to say to the South Eastern PDP Presidential Candidates, Mr. Peter Obi, Anyim Pius Anyim, Sam Ohabunwa and Dr. Nwachukwu Anakwenze, that all of you who will accept the position of Vice President of the PDP accepted death. We will annihilate you and your children from the earth.
“There will be a ‘Jerry Rawlings Judgment’ for the South East’s political saboteurs, big and small, only showing up and working for the South East’s presidential aspirants can save you.
“PDP delegates at all levels in the South East must know that the PDP presidential primary is not the time to make money, but the time to choose a good candidate to fix Nigeria, therefore , they should choose to either work with the presidential aspirants of the Southeast, or we will serve their heads on a plate.
“We are aware that the main factor preventing the restoration of Biafra is the Igbo politicians or the so-called rulers of the country of Biafra.
“We remembered all the corrupt politicians in Biafra this time. None of you will escape our wrath. You live with us and we live with you, we know your homes, your offices and some of you who have sent your children abroad to enjoy a good education and a good life, we will follow your children and your wives.
“There will be cries of grief in the country of Biafra if someone betrays the South East. We took this “suicide mission” to save the land of Biafra. We are not afraid of death because we died many years ago with the injustice and marginalization melting away in the Southeast since after the war,” the group said.
