We Can Achieve Biafra Through Civil Disobedience – IPOB



The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that Biafra can be realised through civil disobedience or direct action contrary to the belief in some parts of Igboland that it cannot be achieved through demonstrations alone.
This was contained in a statement issued by IPOB. The statement by Emma Powerful, entitled, ‘Biafra can be achieved with civil disobedience and direct action,’ read in part, “IPOB can categorically and experientially conclude that Biafra can be achieved by civil disobedience and direct action contrary to statements made by some saboteurs and Hausa-Fulani slaves from Igbo-speaking area.
“That Barack Obama is the president of the USA today is directly attributable to the civil disobedience of the days of Malcom-X and Martin Luther King Jr. For 27 years, the blacks in South Africa never stopped carrying out civil disobedience until Nelson Mandela was released from prison. “The Arab Spring started with civil disobedience and the outcome is there for all to see. It is therefore preposterous and smacks of political illiteracy for some compromised people to make mockery of the well-organized and peaceful civil disobedience by IPOB that has the twin objectives of pressurizing government to release their illegally detained leader and for the restoration of the nation of Biafra. One of these saboteurs and political neophytes cum Hausa-Fulani slaves is a man called… “Who has now distinguished himself as the latest and greatest saboteur of the restoration of the nation of Biafra. This fellow is from Alayi-Bende in Abia State. His father was a fine gentleman but unfortunately, gave birth to one of the greatest saboteurs of our time. Retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari wanted to have a negotiation meeting with the objective of finding a way out of the impasse occasioned by widespread demonstrations by the IPOB. “The IPOB leader nominated this man to go and meet with Buhari on the assumption that he is a man of integrity and a Biafran to the core. He met with Buhari twice but never came back to Nnamdi Kanu to debrief him. Instead, he used the opportunity of meeting Buhari to cut personal deals for himself. He should return all the money he collected from Buhari. “To cover up his track, he granted interview to a national newspaper reporter, where he displayed his crass ignorance of Nigerian politics as well as mocked the victims of Buhari’s genocidal killings in Biafraland. “From his conducts and recent utterances, and just like his fellow sexually confused Igbo politicians who are prostitutes to Hausa-Fulani men in return for political favours, it is clear he is the present danger to the Biafra restoration process. “He has now joined the hall of infamy of Biafran saboteurs.” May 30, Biafra’s Armed Forces remembrance day Meantime, members of the group has restated their determination to carry out the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony scheduled for May 30, this year, in Biafran land, in memory of over 2.5 million Biafrans killed during the 1967 civil war and over 1,000 Biafran agitators killed by security forces between August 30, 2015 and now. IPOB said there is no going back on the ceremony as scheduled, in spite of the fact that the Federal Government has concluded plans to shoot indiscriminately at their members during their proposed May 30, 2016 remembrance day peaceful assembly. In a press statement, yesterday, IPOB said even though a discovery made by their intelligence outfit showed that the government has directed the Defence Headquarters DHQ to open fire and kill Biafrans on the D-day should they venture to embark on the assembly, whether peaceful or not, the spirits of the fallen Biafran heroes and those alive are greater than the rampaging Nigerian Armed forces put together.
