“When IPOB started, they came to Imo State when I was the governor, but I listened to them and understood their grievances.

“They asked me to join them, and I told them if they can convince me to have another (Biafra country) passport, I will join.

“I could have asked my men to shoot them as they were killed in Okigwe and other states, but no. I had to listen to know what they were going through.

“That is how the Nigerian government should treat the youths, sympathise with them. Treat them well,” Okorocha said.
