The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has stated that the actualization of a sovereign state of Biafra is very near.
The group made this known on Sunday in a statement issued in Awka, the Anambra State capital, by its Media and Publicity Secretary , Emma Powerful.
The statement read in part:
“The Indigenous People of Biafra and its leadership wish to reaffirm our position clearly to all and sundry in Nigeria and beyond that Biafra freedom and sovereignty is non -negotiable regardless of the political permutations in Nigeria . ”
IPOB also stated that the just concluded presidential election in Nigeria just vindicated what they’ve been saying about the country.
“Voting in Nigeria is useless . 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 . ”
