The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said members of the Indigenous People of Biafra cannot attack him outside Nigeria.
Ngige stated this in Obosi, Anambra State during a working visit on Wednesday, September 17.
This came against the aftermath of reports that IPOB members had threatened to attack politicians of the South-East geopolitical zone if they were sighted anywhere outside the country.
He said the secessionists would have a moral burden to attack him because he protected them and their interests when he was the governor of Anambra State.
Ngige further revealed that IPOB was not initially set up to be a violent group.
