Nwodo who noted that Ohanaeze had no quarrel with its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, noted that Ohanaeze and IPOB shares the same vision to emancipate Ndigbo, adding that the apex Igbo group wants dialogue and restructuring of the country.

In its own statement, the IPOB leadership led by its principal officers, Benjamin Madubugwu, asked Ohanaeze to help in working towards the nullification of the proscribing of IPOB, saying that IPOB is not a terrorist organization.

“IPOB is not a terrorist organisation, it was given a bad name in order to hang it,” Madubugwu said.
