IPOB outraged at seizure of Biafra newspapers

16 March 2016, 16:18

Abuja - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has lashed at President Muhammadu Buhari for reportedly ordering soldiers to seize newspapers that have captions or stories related to Biafra.

Soldiers from 144 Battalion, Asa Ukwa West local council, Abia State are said to have seized the publications.

The secessionist organisation said the order was an affront to freedom spelt in the country’s constitution.

“What does Buhari want to achieve by seizing newspapers that published Biafra stories?” asked an IPOB spokesperson.

“Which part of the 1999 Constitution is Buhari enforcing by this dastardly act?”

He said Buhari had violates Chapter IV of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria and contravened the Seventh Schedule of the 1999 Constitution, and thus was a ground for impeachment?

“When will Buhari’s illiteracy-inspired insanity come to an end?” IPOB quipped.

“By confiscating newspapers, Buhari has taken his madness to another level. His despicable conduct is evidence that the International Criminal Court shall consider when looking into the various crimes he has been committing.”

IPOB wants the administration tried for alleged crimes against humanity.

“It is possible that Buhari is willingly working himself into the prison yard in The Hague. Notwithstanding, the international community must caution Buhari and stop him in his tracks.”

IPOB is among organisations advocating for the independence of Biafra from Nigeria.

Biafra was a secessionist state in southeastern Nigeria that existed from 30 May 1967 to 1970.
