IPOB Press Statement
If there is any doubt that the slavish Igbo political is against our freedom and progress as a people, the statement credited to Nnia Nwodo, where he personally wrote in his open letter to Ndigbo that “neither IPOB nor Ohanaeze can give the Igbo Biafra” is the clearest confirmation that he and his likes are sabotaging our efforts. We the noble family of IPOB worldwide view such cowardly anti-Biafra utterance with the utmost contempt that it deserves. Such statement coming from the leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo group is a clear demonstration that our clamour for freedom, which is presently resonating all over the world, is of no concern to these unrepentant Fulani slaves. By virtue of this unguarded comment, Nnia Nwodo has effectively flown the white flag of surrender before his caliphate masters. To the discerning, what he has done is to send a coded message to the Sultan that as long as he remains Ohaneze Ndigbo group President-General he will continue to undermine IPOB Biafra restoration effort. This statement is merely an extension of his public declaration in Lagos last year that he will use his last strength to sabotage any effort by IPOB to restore Biafra.
Nnia Nwodo may have succeeded in reinforcing his one Nigeria credentials and reassuring his masters in the north that his treachery against his people will continue, but one inescapable fact he and his masters must know is that we in IPOB are more than determined, we are undeterred, unfazed and remain puritanically fanatical to our core pursuit of Biafra liberation and freedom for all oppressed people. No amount of letter writing, sponsored media attacks against IPOB, name-calling, cheap propaganda or Fulani boot-licking from these sell-outs will stop Biafra from coming. We have sacrificed a lot in blood and sweat to allow natural-born traitors to derail our effort. IPOB is not Ohaneze Ndigbo group, our ethos and modus operandi is the exact opposite of theirs. They sell our people, we defend our people; they sell our interest, we demand our right.
For purposes of clarity, IPOB is not in the same league with Ohanaeze Ndigbo group. First of all our name IPOB is self-explanatory. Indigenous people of Biafra is a name that comprises all indigenous peoples in the old Eastern Region; that is the entire area now referred to as South East and South-South including parts of Lower Benue. Ohaneze Ndigbo group is a social-cultural organization dedicated to protecting the interest of her leaders to the detriment of the wellbeing of Igbo people. IPOB represents the entire people that makeup Biafra. Igbo is Biafra but Biafra (IPOB) is not Igbo alone. Anybody linking Ohaneze to Biafra restoration is either an agent of the Fulani caliphate or being driven by petty jealousy, envy, and wickedness against IPOB. For the avoidance of doubt, IPOB is not only world-renowned but remains the largest freedom fighting movement on this planet earth dedicated to the ultimate restoration of Biafra. IPOB has redefined freedom fight along the principle of non-violent self-emancipation through referendum. International institutions are researching and writing about IPOB, scholars around the world have made IPOB style of freedom fighting subject of academic research and evidence abound to corroborate this. For us, Biafra restoration is irreversible and no force or principality in high and low places can prevail against it. This is the message Nnia Nwodo should take to his Arewa masters.
