Biafra is a reality: We won’t resort to violence in self-defence – IPOB

91

It is gratifying that IPOD has put the lie to the rumor that its members are about to resort to violence – We salute them.

“The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied earlier reports that it has resolved to resort to violence with the security agencies who have been killing their members during protest and prayer sessions.

In a statement issued yesterday in Nnewi by the IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful, he said  there was never  a time IPOB  threatened to resort to violence in its agitation for the release of its leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu and actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra.

He said those who were quoting IPOB or any of its coordinators or spokespersons as saying so, were either trying to be mischievous or trying to paint a picture of IPOB being a violent group that will be tagged a terrorist group by the international community. “

BIAFRA: We won’t resort to violence in self-defence —IPOB

It is gratifying that IPOD has put the lie to the rumor that its members are about to resort to violence – We salute them.

The continuing killings by the Buhari led Nigerian government of youths exercising their civil, human and constitutional rights to control their destiny must be thoroughly condemned and those involved in these crimes against humanity, from the highest to the lowest, must face the music for their dastardly acts. Igbo in Diaspora must step up to the plate to make sure that these abominable individuals do not remain free for long.

The demands by these youths supported by their elders that each ethnic nationality MUST:

control 100% of its political space;

control 100% of its boundaries;

control 100% of its resources;

grow at its own pace;

govern/rule itself;

make the ultimate decision on its way forward by itself and without interference;

cannot be abrogated NEITHER must the continued occupation of their lands by the British government backed born-to-rule and  its abominable coalition be allowed to fester.  Again, a strong stance by Igbo in Diaspora will help resolve this vexing issue that  has been with the ethnic nationalities in the prison, Nigeria, since 1914 when the British government began to put in place the perpetual colonization of the ethnic nationalities.

It is important that all so-called Nigerian leaders responsible for the many deaths of their fellow citizens from 1945 to present; especially the Hitler of Nigeria Gowon, Obasanjo, Danjuma, IBB, Buhari, …, be on notice for Igbo will never forget their war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Igbo in Diaspora, especially, in the advanced nations must step up to the plate!

Let the drive to the nation of our dreams, the beacon on a hill, the pride of Blacks the world over, the emerging power that will in due time take its place amongst other advanced nations continue.

BIAFRA: We won’t resort to violence in self-defence —IPOB

Nnewi—The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied earlier reports that it has resolved to resort to violence with the security agencies who have been killing their members during protest and prayer sessions.

In a statement issued yesterday in Nnewi by the IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful, he said  there was never  a time IPOB  threatened to resort to violence in its agitation for the release of its leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu and actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra.

He said those who were quoting IPOB or any of its coordinators or spokespersons as saying so, were either trying to be mischievous or trying to paint a picture of IPOB being a violent group that will be tagged a terrorist group by the international community.

According to him, IPOB after the killing of their members in a prayer session in Aba, Abia State by security men and several other killings that resulted to the loss of lives of over 1,000 members, resolved to defend themselves in the face of any attack, but it did not say with weapons.

His words: “We believe that some people are out to destroy IPOB name, and it is the same people who tried without success to link us with the seizure of a merchant ship last month, which the Nigerian Army confirmed the hijackers were not from Nigeria. Now, that the plan to tarnish our image has failed, they are plotting another way by saying that we want to go violent, but their plan will not work.

“IPOB will maintain its nonviolent approach. Like other responsible Biafra agitators, we will not be violent but Nigerians and the world should be rest assured that we will defend ourselves in the face of any attack by the military, police or any other security agencies because we have been pushed to the wall by the Nigerian military and the police, and we will not take that any longer.

“There are many nonviolent ways of defending ourselves. Self defence is approved in international law, and you should not be shooting people that were praying and think that they will leave you unchallenged.

“We are not going to involve in any kind of arms struggle. It is not our style but we must achieve Biafra. It is funny that the people that have been killing us over the years are now jittery that we said we will defend ourselves in the face of any attack. So, they love their lives, they do not want to die but they are killing us. Let them try and kill our members again and we will show them how we will defend ourselves” he said.
