(Onitsha) – It is like a pre-planned protest but it was a complete spontaneous reaction from Igbo women of repute, who saw the opportunity to register their displeasure on the role of Ohanaeze Ndigbo on its role towards IPOB members’ deaths.
The women seen here in the video link below, howled several Igbo curses on the Ohanaeze, calling them, dishonest bunch of men, who have refused to speak the truth or act to protect the interest of the Igbo people in the face of threat from outside.
While the disruption was ongoing, the organisers tried to no avail to halt the verbal protests from the Igbo women, who are very upset with the manner Ohanaeze handled the issue of IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu.
One woman, who was clearly heard laid a curse on the Ohanaeze in Igbo saying ‘death shall visit you all who have refused to say the truth and stand up against evil’.
The organisers played Chief Osita Osadebe’s legendary music to clam nerves but that did not help. They later played a number from Chief Ebenezer Obey.
A man was heard shouting through the microphone, ‘there must be peace in Nigeria’. All these refused to calm the angry Igbo women.
