The group's statement follows Osinbajo's remark that all those agitating for the secession of any part of Nigeria and the Northern youth who issued an ultimatum to Igbos living in the North risk jail terms.
But the IPOB in its response threatened that Osinbajo will end up a failure if he continues his remarks against IPOB.
