IPOB Okays Igbo And Yoruba Dialogue But Disapproves Ndigbo’s Continuous Investment In Lagos

IPOB Press Release

June 18 2024 | IPOB

The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu has been drawn to the deceptive letter from a group of faceless Yoruba Leaders and Stakeholders calling on Igbo communities in Lagos State for a dialogue. Ndigbo must not fall into any deception to continue investments in Lagos State, where their investments are not protected.

As much as IPOB does not oppose any genuine dialogue between the Yorubas and Ndigbo in Lagos State, IPOB will object to any dialogue that is intended to lure Ndigbo to continue investing in the hostile environment of Lagos State. Ndigbo have done all they can to belong to Nigeria, but Nigeria keeps rejecting Ndigbo with exclusivity and ethnic bigotry policies.

Ndigbo has lost millions of investments and lives in the Northern and Western regions of Nigeria. In the North, Ndigbo are always the victims of any religious and political riots during which Northerners destroy, loot, and burn down businesses and properties belonging to Ndigbo.

Recently, in the Western Region particularly in Lagos State, Biafrans businesses and properties have been targeted by the Lagos state Government criminals, and we will no longer tolerate our people to continue investing in Yoruba land. Lagos State is not Igboland.

Lagos State Government has demolished properties and investment of Ndigbo. Many Igbo dominated markets in Lagos have either been demolished or burnt down and taken over by the Lagos State government. On the basis of the aforementioned, any Igbo person investing in the Northern and Western Regions of Nigeria needs DNA tests.

IPOB calls on all Biafrans to stop investing in Yoruba land and Arewa land. All investments should be channelled to Biafran Land. Our people who invested in Biafra Land are doing well and are helping to create jobs for our youth. Biafrans have been an engine of growth in any society they find themselves in.

In all parts of the world where Ndigbo resides, they directly or indirectly contribute to the development of that area. It’s in our DNA to build others alongside ourselves, and we cannot stop because it is our covenant with God Almighty (Chukwu Okike Abiama) to bring light wherever we go, however, enough of investing in the hostile regions of Nigeria where our investments are not secure. Let us take our investments to Igboland where our investments will be safe.

Where was this Yoruba group when their Governor Sanwo-Olu and the Lagos House of Assembly promulgated a bigotry law that targeted Ndi Igbo’s businesses and properties in Lagos? How many of Ndigbo were compensated after their businesses and properties were demolished?

Ndigbo should go back home and invest and forget Yoruba land. Irrespective of the State sponsored insecurity Fulani stooges called governors used to deter investments, Alaigbo is still more conducive and secure for investment compared to the enemy territories of the West and the North.

Ndigbo should know that Nigeria dislikes the audacity and ambitious spirit of an Igbo person. Instead of learning and adapting to the doggedness of Ndigbo, many Nigerians envy us. This unwarranted envy, jealousy, and blessings of Chukwu Okike Abiama is the reason that Ndigbo is being targeted.

The same envy made, the revered Yoruba Leader, late Obafemi Awolowo, a Nigerian Finance Minister in the 1960s promulgated an economic annihilation decree that led to Nigeria paying every rich Igbo person who had money in any Nigerian bank twenty pounds (£20) irrespective of how much they had in any Nigerian bank after the Nigeria genocidal war against Biafra.

Similarly, the same government promulgated abandoned property law against Ndigbo during that genocidal war with Igbo brothers in Port Harcourt and elsewhere to create enmity with brothers, uncles, and cousins. The abandoned property law gave other malicious Nigerians rights to ownership of houses and properties that belonged to Ndigbo after the genocidal war, but Yorubas and the Northern Elders refused to do the abandon properties against Ndigbo in their own lands.

Any Igbo person who continues to invest in Lagos and in the North with the current state of events needs his brain examination. The West and North did not indulge in abandoned properties but decided to destroy Ndigbo investments and properties in their own regions.

Returning your property and investments home is a signal to our willingness for Biafra freedom and sovereignty. Do not allow yourself to be a victim of abandoned property or discriminatory policies. Ndigbo must not fall into the repetitive deception of the so-called “One Nigeria.” The ethnic sentiments displayed against Ndigbo because of Mr. Peter Obi’s presidential ambition cannot be overstated. That should be an eye-opener to all.

There is a lot of land in Igboland and a young and vibrant population to make businesses boom. Together, we can build our own Dubai and Japan of Africa in Biafra Land.
