Former lawmaker, who represented the Enugu East Senatorial District in the 9th National Assembly, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has expressed sadness over the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in the South-East.

DAILY POST reports that the secessionist group are currently enforcing a one week sit-at-home across the region as a protest against the incarceration of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is still in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

On Wednesday, a disturbing motion picture, which captured the IPOB members beating some pupils and their teachers for disobeying the sit-at-home exercise went viral.

Reacting, Chimaroke, a former governor of Enugu State blamed the development on “tribalism and religious bigotry”.

In a tweet on his official handle on Thursday, the former lawmaker wrote, “the decline and decline of Igbo civilization. Strange happenings in a strange land. How do we explain the Igbo flogging of school children, teachers and mothers? Offense?

“Igbo fulfilling the mythological trinity, Igbambo (Hustle)! Only a society that celebrates incompetence, half knowledge and ignorance. All shrouded in the darkest eclipse of tribalism and religious bigotry”!
