Responding to the alleged letter written by APGA in Anambra State threatening a showdown with IPOB for allegedly giving an order of no election in all South-East, starting from Anambra gubernatorial election come November 18 this year, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful said: “We are not deterred by the noise coming from APGA because after November 18, 2017 guber election in Anambra, APGA will cease to exist as a political force because they killed innocent Biafrans fighting for the liberation of all of us.
“We stand strongly to tell the whole world the position of IPOB under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that we will not be participating in any party politics or electioneering in Anambra State or elsewhere for that matter. All we are asking for is a date for referendum, not war, so the people of Biafra can decide their fate in this abominable entity called Nigeria.
“The political vampires who are APGA members and other politicians in Biafraland claiming to be lovers of Biafra and her freedom should know that if Nigerian government fails to give Biafrans a date for referendum to ascertain the will of the people in no distant time, there will be no more elections in Biafraland.
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and its leadership worldwide view the childish antics of APGA as a jealously laden, derisory attempt to divert attention away from the fact that APGA, as the governing party in Anambra State, has been responsible for the death of innocent Biafrans numbering over 2,000 since the formation.”
Ezu River dead bodies
IPOB also alleged that the infamous Ezu River bodies and the heinous massacres at Nkpor and Head Bridge Onitsha were perpetrated by APGA on different occasions.
It said: “The party employed wholesale slaughter of our people as a way of stopping the agitation for restoration of Biafra, not knowing that we are prepared to keep dying until Biafra is restored as we swore.”
We’ve lost confidence in IGP
Meanwhile, the leader of Afenifere Youths, Eric Olawale, has said the Afenifere youths have totally lost confidence in the leadership of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over his failure to arrest the Arewa youths, who gave the Igbo quit notice from the North.
Olawale also said they have lost confidence in the Northern governors over the same issue, saying that with their action, they have failed to provide leadership.
Olawale who said he was in Umuahia in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups, said that they are also keenly interested in having Oduduwa Republic.
