Methodist Bishop blasts Joe Igbokwe, says he’s selfish, ignorant ‘Tobias or Samballat

The Bishop of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Onitsha Diocese, Rt. Rev. Biereonwu Livinus Onuagha, has shredded a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, AOC, Joe Igbokwe, and other Igbo rejoicing over the reaarrest and incarceration of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

 Onuagha said Kanu symbolised the Igbo race and handcuffing him meant that the entire Ndigbo are also in  handcuffs.

The cleric in a press statement he issued took a swipe at Igbokwe and other Igbo celebrating  Kanu’s ordeal, saying they are naive.

“Some people are rejoicing that Nnamdi Kanu has been arrested. Others are not happy because of that. The chase after Nnamdi Kanu is a misplaced priority. To me, any Igbo person openly criticising Kanu now is a lost soul, a bastard and a naive person. No apology,” he said.

“Those Igbos rejoicing like Joe Igbokwe in Lagos are only ignorant of the handwriting on the wall. Let me refer him to the Scripture if he reads his Bible: ‘By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, and there we wept when we remembered Zion.

“Joe Igbokwe does not know or understand that handcuffs on the hand of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is handcuffs on the hands of every Igbo man. If I may ask, why is Joe Igbokwe thanking God for the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu?

“He is only making himself a Tobias or Sanballat.”
