- The leader of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Shettima Yerima, has tongue-lashed IPOB for attacking Orji Kalu
- Shettima said IPOB has lost common sense to know what is good for its members
- He noted that Kalu, a former governor of Abia, played a major role in the peace currently being enjoyed in the country
The national president of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), Shettima Yerima, has hit the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), calling its members ingrates
Shettima said this as a reaction to the group’s recent attack on former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu.
According to Shettima, IPOB has become irresponsible and lacks the common sense to come to terms with reality.
Yerima, who spoke in Kaduna on Wednesday, October 4, expressed surprised that the IPOB spokespersons could extend their traditional ways of insults to even someone like ex-Governor Orji Uzor Kalu, who mediated on their behalf.
He lamented that IPOB resorted to calling Kalu names despite all the former governor's efforts in sustaining relative peace the country is enjoying today.
“A man who has frequently shuttled the North to discuss the safety of his people deserve more than appreciations.
“If they couldn't contain their pot of insults and decides to extensively extend it to even the ones sticking their neck on their behalf.
“It simply shows how irresponsible, ungrateful and unappreciative they can be,” he said.

Speaking on the alleged disappearance of Kanu, Shettima added: “I wonder the reason for such propaganda by IPOB. Even when they said Nnamdi Kanu's father was missing, a doctor in Federal Medical Centre confirmed he slumped and was brought for treatment at Federal Medical Centre.
“Meanwhile, IPOB claims they disappeared or the army has them.”
NAIJ.com earlier reported how Orji Uzor Kalu said IPOB holds a false opinion about him and has advised the separatist movement not to forget their lines so soon.
