IPOB Sponsorship: Eze Nwokocha may be innocent-Mbaise people

The people of Mbaise in Imo state have asked security agencies to be transparent in their investigation of an allegation by an acclaimed IPOB member, Chinwendu Nwagwu AKA Onye Army that Eze Leo Nwokocha sponsors their activities.
The request came from some indigenes of Mbaise during an interview conducted randomly by our correspondent, regarding the allegation against Eze Leo Nwokocha who is the chairman of Mbaise council of Traditional Rulers.
One of the people who only gave his name as Ifeanyi, from Ibeku Aboh Mbaise said though Eze Nwokocha might not be a saint, the manner in which the acclaimed IPOB member accused the traditional ruler is questionable.
“In the Viral Video, he mentioned that Eze Nwokocha sponsored their activities with the paltry sum of #120,000; meaning that IPOB and their activities are very cheap, ” Ifeanyi wondered.
He also wondered how Eze Nwokocha could engage engage his own subject to unleash mayhem in the society knowing fully well the gravity of the offense.
Also contributing, another source from Nguru Aboh Mbaise, One Onyemauche testified that Eze Nwokocha had been against the involvement of the youth in violence and should not sponsor violence.
“His problem with some young men is that he doesn’t tolerate violence,” Onyemauche explained.
