The Attention of Nigerians in the country and in the diaspora seems to have been drawn to the ongoing unrest in the southeast and the most recent war of words between Special Adviser, Media and Publicity Mallam Garba Sheu and the Convener of the Bring Back our Girls campaign, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili over issues bordering on Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu.
The following are the reactions of Nigerians following the ongoing unrest in the southeastern zone of the country. #IPOB
Dear Nnamdi Kanu IPOB-Biafra, as you keep stoking ethnic hatred, Igbo’s are settling in the North, meet the owner of Mackson Filling station pic.twitter.com/4s0Z41dR5H

If you are Igbo in Jos, Abia, Rivers, & Aba don’t attack anyone.
Nnamdi Kanu & IPOB leaders have their families abroad.

Buhari is wrong. IPOB is wrong. Military is wrong. Nigeria is wrong. Biafra is wrong. Everybody is wrong.
See eh I just want to travel.

Just before you criticise the ARMY, watch this……

Just saw a video of the army gathering IPOB supporters and telling them to keep slapping themselves. Nnamdi Kanu isn’t there. Be wise

IPOB is a terrorist movement under the cover of Biafra. No sane Igbo will attack innocent Nigerians in SE, burn mosque, kill policemen.

If you understand Igbo, then you will know this IPOB issue has reached a point where something decisive has to be done asap pic.twitter.com/4uUP1fCFGc

let everybody voice against the human right abuse being carried out in the SE. IPOB members should walk within the law.

Asking the governor to talk to IPOB will be elevating the status of IPOB. The governor should rather work with the security agencies.

IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu just taking over my TL. Kanu is chilling while the ignorant ones among the IPOB are risking their lives for nothing
— IG: ayomitide77 (@Ayomitide7) September 15, 2017
IPOB and some Igbos want to seperate frm Nigeria, but they want to force Rivers ppl to be Igbos by force. Why do we think this way?
— Nazo (@ejeke22) September 15, 2017
I salute Shehu Graba for excellent defense of the presidency on IPOB lawlessness. It’s shameful Oby fails to condemn IPOB lawlessness.
— Gbade Alabi (@gbadealabi) September 15, 2017
that’s bad but can you justify the IPOB’s barbaric acts against the Innocent non Igbo community?
— Abubakar Umar (@abu7725) September 15, 2017
Dr. Ezekwesili do you want FGN watch vandals overrun a nation? They have dealt with zaky and B.H, what’s makes IPOB special?
— Sameer Yeshwanth (@sameeryeshwanth) September 15, 2017
Ordinary dancing from Python ppl are shouting what if it’s Operation “Python Swallow” Kanu/IPOB members brain should be reset
— Shuwa (@theshuwa) September 15, 2017
Anybody who disagrees with IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu’s style is immediately labelled anti-igbo and other unprintable names.
— ibibia awoju (@ib4real3) September 15, 2017
Believe me …This is not just about Nnamdi Kanu or IPOB today in Umuahia/Aba everybody IPOB or not is being intimidated by the NA.

Whatever is happening now has nothing to do with Igbo’s collectively, a man’s decision is a reflection of his individuality. — IPOB

The whole IPOB something is just a ploy to destabilise the government and our Northern brothers are falling for it.
— Harun (@Maikano_013) September 15, 2017
I’m not ready for this IPOB v Northerners beef. Me, I’m just trying to learn Zulu. O South Africa!! My (new) Motherland!!!!?✈✈ here I come!
— childhood nostalgia (@obedgrumpy) September 15, 2017
Nnamdi Kanu’s wife & child are based abroad. He’s a British citizen. When it gets too hot, he’ll flee. Be wise! Don’t fall for IPOB’s tricks

Talk To IPOB & Stop This Madness Instead They Keep Quiet. Gov Ikpeasu May Be The Loser When State Of Emergency Is Declared In Abia

That doesn’t mean most of their complaints are not valid. But the secession thing & the manner at which IPOB is going about it is not valid.
— KUKUTE (@Ade_Nurayn) September 15, 2017
Good morning y’all…. Biafra/IPOB AND @HQNigerianArmy should get their good morning elsewhere…. ?
— El Padrino (@official_Iphy) September 15, 2017
It’s vital the govt call to order the attention of IPOB members attacking hausas in Rivers state.they’re nt army that surrounded Kanu’s home
— Igbatigbi Zekeri (@IgbatigbiZ) September 15, 2017
Must we take sides ?
Can’t we condemn the actions of both IPOB & the Nigerian Army ?

This ? from the wall of @cyberagbero, is worth pondering about.
IPOB members should ask their leaders, Ekweremadu & Ihedioha,some questions pic.twitter.com/5pyqdGEPDe
