Professor of Political Science, Abia State University, Professor Hatz Ofoeze, has cautioned members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, and other Biafra agitators not to be carried away by the promise by the United Kingdom to grant asylum to ‘persecuted’ members of the movement.
Ofoeze in an interview with our Correspondent said ” Britain can never be trusted”, hence, he holds the promise with a pinch of salt.
He said that Britain was the cause of Nigeria’s woes, and doubted the sincerity of the promise.

Professor Ofoeze said the promise could be a ploy to expose IPOB members and other pro-Biafra groups for persecution if they go for the offer.
His words: ” Britain can’t be trusted. They are the cause of Nigeria’s problem.
” I won’t even want any IPOB member to trust them. This could be a plan to expose them.
” Right from Independence, they seem to be giving undue advantage to a section of the country.
” So, what they are doing now is an afterthought. Biafra agitators need to be wary of that offer. Somebody granting asylum to another doesn’t need to announce it ahead of time.
” They don’t even want to see people from the Southern part of Nigeria because they know they are wise and intelligent. They want people they can easily manipulate”.
