The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said there is no plan to attack any part of the South-East region.The group disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abakaliki on Monday.
Emma Powerful, the IPOB spokesman, also noted that IPOB has not officially declared that there will be no election in Anambra State.
The statement reads: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have read with amusement, a fallacious media remark by one inconsequential Shekau, a self-acclaimed supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari where he displayed his ignorance and cluelessness about IPOB, our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and the goings-on in Biafra land.“As much as we would not want to dignify this amorphous fellow with a response, the pertinent question is: who is this Shekau without a surname that a national newspaper like Daily Trust should publish?“It is a pity that this ignoble fellow and attention seeker compared a non-violent movement like IPOB to Boko Haram terrorists created and groomed by the North to kill Jewish and Christian adherents, indigenous Northerners and security agents.
“IPOB has seen numerous false propaganda in the past and we are not in any way moved by this latest vomit. We know the antics of our enemies who are never tired of sponsoring media lies to cover up their evil and rubbish our struggle for independence, but we are not deterred.“Contrary to the vomit by this inconsequential fellow, IPOB has no plans to attack South Easterners and South Southerners. In the first place, violence is not part of our philosophy. Assuming we want to resort to violence, how can we attack the people whom we are fighting for? It does not make any sense.”He added that “It is also important to note that contrary to speculations, IPOB has not officially declared ‘no election in Anambra State’. Our preoccupation is Biafra restoration. Anybody equating IPOB strategy with Boko Haram terrorists, bandits and Fulani herdsmen is ignorant and mischievous.
Many acclaimed Northerners don’t know what we are doing to restore Biafra.”
