The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, said that the appearance and speech of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has demonstrated beyond any doubt that Biafra restoration is an irreversible project “regardless of what the criminal political class and their hired hands may think”.
A statement issued on Tuesday by IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that “the gravy train of political mediocrity and conveyor belt of impunity will soon come to an end”.
IPOB insisted that the only man (Nnamdi Kanu), “who can restore hope to the hopeless, is out and determined more than ever to set the captives free”.
The statement reads in part: “We the global family of the Indigenous People if Biafra, IPOB, commend hardcore Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom for keeping faith with our leader Nazi Nnamdi Kanu as evidenced by the unprecedented enthusiasm and support his world press conference generated all over the world.
“We thank our indomitable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for taking the time to educate the world on the horrors of the military invasion of his home and concerted effort by the corrupt political class across both divides to assassinate him.
“Their failure to accomplish that dastardly deed officially marked the end of Nigeria as we know it.
“That certain segments of the anti-Biafra crusade are busy tormenting their sad souls with outlandish falsehoods and outright fabricated lies is confirmation that the tendency to gravitate towards anything evil is part and parcel of what it means to be a Nigerian.
“The wickedness and murderous tendencies of this ‘Buhari’ regime and his Fulani herdsmen is a reflection of the devilish nature of the Nigerian society.”
IPOB said it will continue to hold Nigeria responsible for the unprovoked invasion of the home of their leader and the death of twenty-eight people. According to the group, a country where the judiciary, legislature and sections of people turn blind eye as the army is unleashed by the president to assassinate people at will does not deserve to exist.
Continuing, the statement said: “Whether the see no evil, hear no evil anti-Biafra brigade within the chattering political class in Nigeria wish to see reason or not, Nnamdi Kanu will bring Nigeria to an end because the level of injustice and wickedness in the land has become intolerable.
“The impunity and disregard for the rule of law in Nigeria, aided and abetted by the gullibility of a largely illiterate population is a recipe for disaster which shall unfold very soon.
“We will continue to ask the question, who sent the army to invade the home of Nnamdi Kanu?
“We again salute the bravery, courage and sacrifice of IPOB Intelligence (M Branch) that lost 28 gallant men on that fateful day of 14 September 2017.”
The group stressed that the repeated attempts by the All Progressives Congress, APC, regime, South East governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo “to cover up the shameful chapter in the annals of atrocities in Nigeria” have been blown wide open by their leader’s worldwide broadcast on Sunday, October 21, 2018, from Israel.
Hitting out at Chef Uwazuruike, Founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, who severely criticised Kanu during the weekend, IPOB said that “non-existent groups that solely operate on the pages of newspapers and the few unethical publications that indulge them are wasting their time”. The group said that “aborted freedom fighters that transmuted from self-determination proponents to property tycoons in Owerri, courtesy of their Fulani masters, have been rendered impotent and reduced to yapping like a drowning bird online”.
The statement added: “The impeccably upright Nnamdi Kanu has command of an entire nation, the sooner these time wasters realise it the better for them.
“Only one broadcast and the foundations of the British contraption Islamic caliphate controlled Nigeria is quaking. What will these people do when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu renders his much anticipated apocalyptic broadcast unmasking Jubril next month, in what we have termed a requiem mass for Nigeria?
“Perhaps that will usher in the Third World War. Apologists for tyranny, collaborators and faceless groups parading themselves as Non-Governmental groups in Igbo land will be swallowed up with the tide of revolutionary rage that will sweep the land.
“Nigeria and her corrupt citizens have every right to be afraid of Nnamdi Kanu because his reemergence has marked the beginning of the end of Nigeria as we know it.
“Had the Nigerian army succeeded in killing Nnamdi Kanu, we would not have been able to bring this horrific event to the attention of the world.”
