IPOB Press Release
November 27, 2018
We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) considers it important to commend every IPOB member and our gallant volunteers who made it possible on our last outing despite the stupidity and predictable intimidation from the Fulani Police Commissioner in Anambra State. It takes courage to defend the freedom and rights of the oppressed, therefore what IPOB has done and continues to do in the face of overwhelming repression and brutality must be commended by all thinking people. We thank the Volunteer Squad across Biafraland for carrying the message of ‘no election’ into our towns and villages. Our peaceful event across Biafraland on Friday proves the total formidability and resoluteness on the side of Biafran citizens towards the collective effort to restore Biafra.
The one and only IPOB ably led by our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu must continue our evangelism and sensitization for Biafra referendum no matter the threats from Nigerian government and her security agencies. It is very pathetic and unbelievable to all Nigerians that Nigerian security forces who has been receiving serious and consistent thrashing from Boko Haram terrorists operating in the North East of Arewa north without resistance would summon the courage and temerity to go around Biafraland harassing unarmed civilians who are peaceful rallying on their own. The cowardly and wretched security agencies of Nigeria cannot confront and withstand Boko Haram terrorist but always find strength and courage in killing innocent Biafrans going about their lawful business.
It is important we remind this despotic Nigerian Government and her security forces that days are coming when they will no longer sneak up behind IPOB rally formations anywhere in Biafraland and be spared. During the recent peaceful street evangelism conducted by IPOB across Biafraland, only the Fulani police commissioner in Anambra State ordered his rag-tag police to attack our people because Obiano gave him permission to do so.
IPOB Intelligence has discovered a grand plan by Obiano and his Fulani masters in Aso Rock to commence a mass arrest of innocent people in and around Nnewi town as a way of creating disunity amongst the people. Obiano and IG of Police are hoping to drive a wedge between Biafra frontline agitators and our people doing businesses in Anambra State. They have resorted to going after and arresting every able-bodied person they come across. This morning they started what they termed house to house searching which is a cover for mass arrest and detention of innocent people. Now that Abba Kyari, the power behind the throne is reported to have died in London, anybody close to the Fulani cabal in Abuja must warn them to instruct Anambra State Police Command to stop the ongoing harassment of innocent citizens and to immediately release the innocent traders they arrested on Friday evening.
The Nigerian government, Obiano and the Fulani Police Commissioner in Anambra State is playing with something bigger than them. If they continue this way, they will be resisted through means and ways they never thought possible.
We wonder why Nigerian government and her security agencies including Gov. Obiano would accuse IPOB members of their missing guns and rifles when everybody knows that Nigerian police is the most corrupt institution in Nigeria and the very embodiment of lies. No sensible person believes the lies they concoct on a daily basis. IPOB doesn’t move with guns and cannot do so until Biafra sovereignty is restored. We are warning Nigeria Government headed by Fulani caliphate including the Nigerian Police to leave IPOB family alone and release those arrested unjustly in the name of arresting IPOB family members.
Nobody or institution can stop our relentless march towards the fulfillment of our destiny as a people. That destiny is Biafra. If Nigerian government couldn’t stop us when they tried to kill our leader last year, is it now he’s in Israel they will stop us?
