2023: IPOB urges Biafrans not to be afraid of anti democratic forces

By Godwin Osuagwu, Owerri

Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Monday, urged Biafrans not to be afraid of anti democratic forces as the country prepares for the 2023 general election even as it condemned the recent attacks on INEC offices and staff in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State. 

Making the urge through her  spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB hinted that the criminal gangs operating within Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra State and Orsuihiteukwa, Orsu Local Government Area, Imo State, are primarily funded and sponsored by unscrupulous politicians through Hope Uzodinma, to demonize IPOB and ESN operatives. 

Reiterating that it has no interest in the Nigeria election, IPOB stated that it was the reason why it refrained from making any statement concerning the election stating that its only demand is a referendum date for Biafrans to decide their political social and economic future either in united Nigeria or Independent Biafra Nation. 

"IPOB and ESN operatives did not ask any group to attack INEC facilities for whatever reason, neither did we issue any sit-at-home order within the election period.
Anybody linking IPOB to the malicious sit-at-home order must be very ignorant. IPOB has its own channels to disemminate information, which are through Radio Biafra programs, through our Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, or through an official IPOB memo signed by the Head of the Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Chika Edoziem. Any IPOB public information that is not from the above-mentioned channels should be disregarded," it stated.

"We urge our people not to pay attention to any fake information purporting to link IPOB to criminal activities of infiltrators and collaborators. IPOB volunteers and ESN operatives will make Biafraland very uncomfortable to criminal gangs paid to intimidate our people and blackmail our peaceful movement.

" Nigeria security agencies who have been aiding, abetting and supporting these criminals recruited and funded by politicians must stay clear because we will unleash our venom on those who want to blackmail IPOB," the movement vowed.

It said that the task ahead was enormous, and that her enemies were relentlessly exploiting every means to destroy IPOB through this coming election, but vowed not to allow them to continue in their obnoxious plan to destroy IPOB and ESN operatives and derail her freedom match. 

"The attacks on INEC facilities within this period are not supported by IPOB, because that will not add any positive value to our struggle.  We are only seeking Biafra freedom through peaceful means and not through violence," IPOB further stated.
