Xenophobia in Lagos: support us to actualize Biafran State - IPOB

By Chinwe Nwacha, Onitsha

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Monday, condemned alleged xenophobia in Lagos and urged Igbo reportedly affected most to support its struggle to actualize a Biafran State where freedom is guaranteed.

Condemning the action through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB lamented what it described as economic sabotage against Ndigbo by the Lagos State government and the silence of the Governors,  Ohaneze Ndigbo, and the National Assembly members from Southeast. 

"The criminal silence of Igbo leaders show that they are either cowards or tacitly in support of  economic sabotage against Ndigbo. It is unfortunate that no Igbo politician nor Ohaneze Ndigbo has publicly defended our people against humiliation and intimidation from the Lagos State Government.

" What has put Igbo political leaders and Ohaneze Ndigbo in this docile and cowardice situation that they can't unanimously condemn the ethnic profiling and systemic destruction of Ndigbo's assets by the Lagos State Government? 

"Why are these men afraid of defending Ndigbo in their same one Nigeria they claim to be a part of and desperately working hard to protect? The Igbo politicians, governors, Senators, representatives, Ohaneze Ndigbo worldwide leaders, traditional rulers, business men and religious leaders should have meeting to discuss how to secure Igbo business men and investments in Lagos State,.

"Yoruba groups and politicians are together for this against Ndigbo in Lagos State. Therefore, our people must take a stand towards these actions against Ndigbo by Yoruba people and their collaborators. The same wind that blew in the 1960s that forced Biafrans to declare the Independent State of Biafra from the damnable Zoological Republic of Nigeria, is blowing again. 

"As Ndigbo in the North are systemically and silently killed, at the same time, private residences and market places of Ndigbo in Lagos State are demolished and forcefully taken over by the State Government. Nigeria will not survive this renewed Igbophobia and ethnic annihilation agenda against Ndigbo. 

,"As successive governments in Nigeria try hard to suffocate  Ndigbo, Nigeria will gradually descend into abyss while Ndigbo and Biafrans will continue to triumph. With the level of criminal silence among Yoruba Governors, Afenifere and their politicians show that they are together in this fight against Ndigbo in Lagos. 

"Sadly, Igbo leaders are mute over this insult on Ndigbo. What Lagos Government is doing against Ndigbo in Lagos is a clear indication that Yorubas are not  friends of Ndigbo and can never be. If Lagos Government can be so wicked and cruel to destroy the properties of Ndigbo at this time
It is a demonstration that they don't want Ndigbo in their region.

" That goes a long way to show that the Federalism that Nigeria rogue country claims to practice is a fraud. If  Ndigbo, as an ethnic group in the so-called one Nigeria, can be profiled and targeted for human and economic annihilation in the Northern and Western Nigeria, then there are no bases for coexistence in one country. Those Biafrans who blamed IPOB for seeking the Biafra referendum can see that IPOB has always been right. 

"We are children of Elohim. If Ndigbo can rise from the ashes of the colossal damages from the Nigeria genocidal war against them and acquire properties across Nigeria, Ndigbo will rise much higher and never go down in the coming Independent State of Biafra. 

"The targeted demolition of properties belonging to Ndigbo and illegal and repeatedly locking down of Igbo markets in Lagos show that Ndigbo are no longer needed in Nigeria. Therefore, to avoid another civil war in Nigeria, the International Community, UN, AU, and ECOWAS should rise to the occasion and call for a referendum," IPOB pleaded
