Igbos will boycott companies that denigrate them – Ohanaeze blows hot


Ohanaeze Ndigbo has ​condemned the trial of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innoson​ ​Group, Chief Innocent Chukwuma​.

The group also threatened to boycott companies that ridicule ​people of the South-east.

This ​is contained in a statement signed by the Special Assistant to the President General of Ohanaeze Worldwide, Chief Emeka Attamah‎.

​It said the body views the current travails of Chukwuma as yet another attempt at hounding another son of Igbo land who, out of personal enterprise and dint of hard work, had helped in shaping the economic and industrial fortunes of Nigeria.

“The apex Igbo organization frowns at this recent attempt to obfuscate the clear court victory won by Innoson’s Group in a crucial suit against a leading bank in the country​”, it read:​

“This release views the current twist in the whole affair as a deliberate attempt to put Chief Chukwuma on the defensive in a matter that clearly vindicates him and confers a lot of financial advantage on him and taint his reputation by introducing a criminal angle to an already settled civil proceedings.

“Ohanaeze is carefully studying this discriminatory treatment of his adversaries by the law enforcement agents with a view to reviewing the patronage of our people to any economic establishment found to be associated in this new criminal assault of Chief Innocent Chukwuma.

“We will no longer be prepared to do business with any organization that denigrates the best of our people,” it added.

​Innoson recently appealed the decision of a Lagos State High Court asking for his arrest on allegations of fraud and forgery.
