The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday said the freedom of Biafra ”Is non-negotiable regardless of the political permutations in Nigeria.”
It could be recalled that Justice Kafarati had on September 20, 2017, made an order proscribing IPOB and designating it as a terrorist group.
However, in a statement issued by the media and publicity secretary of the group, Emma Powerful in Awka, Anambra State, the group stressed that the sovereign state of Biafra would soon be actualised.
The group boasted that it has been vindicated by the outcome of the February 23rd, 2019 presidential election, adding that ”Voting in Nigeria is useless”.
The statement read in part, ”We have been vindicated by the result of the shambolic, rigging fest they call elections.
“The unacceptable levels of humiliation, intimidation, killing, announcement of fake results, coupled with sponsored propaganda against our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and the entire peaceful movement, cannot stop our total resolve to restore Biafra sovereignty in the shortest possible time.
“Only a moron and worker of iniquity will pretend not to know what transpired in the colonial contraption called Nigeria during the recently concluded presidential election. Using the military, police and armed thugs to rig in favour of the ruling APC was clear for all to see.
“That the result has been sanctioned by some weak-minded apathetic Nigerians as well as the Fulani-loving British colonial masters, despite the horrors of those elections, is proof, if one is needed, that the poor masses of Nigeria are like tormented caged animals stripped of every dignity and lacking in courage.”
