IPOB says restoration of Biafra is a divine project

26 August 2016, 21:35

Abuja - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said it was not deterred by alleged vilification campaigns by the federal government but remained inspired to advocate for the independence of the region.

“They have tried all the tricks available to them plus those they could borrow from elsewhere and yet they are unable to destabilize IPOB,” the organization said.

The organization alleged the campaign of calumny by the current administration started in June 2015, soon after President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration, when Buhari and “his DSS” allegedly failed attempts at provoking Biafrans through the use of the Nigerian Airforce to bomb Akwa-Ibom and Cross River states in Biafraland and in which they expected Biafrans to react violently.

IPOB alleged during the period, security shot and killed Biafrans at Aba and Igweocha (in Port Harcourt) in July 2015 but Biafrans never responded violently.

It alleged in August, forces killed several Biafrans by shooting live bullets at over 10 000 Biafrans who were on evangelism at Onitsha Head Bridge in Anambra State.

“Again there was no violent reaction from Biafrans.”

IPOB alleged between November 2015 and May 2016, 3 000 Bafrans had allegedly been murdered in a bid to provoke IPOB into violence.

The organization further alleged DSS made a fake press release in which they claimed that IPOB members killed five Hausa-Fulani men in Aba and buried several others in unmarked graves.

“This false press release back-fired when they listed the names of four out of the five men but were unable to prove how they came to the conclusion that these men were specifically of Hausa-Fulani descent.”

IPOB argued the restoration of the nation of Biafra was a divine project.

“Therefore no man can divide or break IPOB, not even our leader Nnamdi Kanu can. Buhari and his DSS have run out of ideas and we advice them to devote their energy and resources into other useful ventures and stop wasting their time and money trying to destabilize IPOB.”
