The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dared the Nigerian federal government as it declared that from Saturday, September 25, 2021, “all Nigerian flag mounted anywhere in ‘Biafra land’ must be brought down.
It also declared “total shutdown” of ‘Biafra land’ on October 1, 2021 “as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.”
IPOB however said its “leadership will communicate to Banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigeria flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.”
IPOB Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said in a statement that the “total shutdown” was “in line with the Memorandum of Understanding, MOU and alliance between Ambazonia and Biafra nations, we the global family of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to ask Biafrans to support and celebrate Ambazonia Independence Anniversary on October 1st 2021.
“It is therefore, the delight of the Directorate Of State, DOS of our great movement, IPOB, that we inform Biafrans all over the world of this up-coming Independence Day Celebration of our great ally and neighbour, the Ambazonian people billed for 1st of October 2021.
“We advise Biafrans to stand with Ambazonia people as they celebrate their God-given freedom and independence. We should bear in mind that our brothers and sisters in Ambazonia are passing through persecutions in the hands of murderous Cameroonian Government just like Biafrans are facing similar ordeals in the hands of Fulani controlled federal government of Nigeria that sympathatises with terrorsts but kills peaceful agitators .
“We therefore urge world leaders to use the opportunity of the on-going United Nations General Assembly, UNGA meeting to discuss the sufferings of the two persecuted nations of Biafra and Ambazonia. Our people have suffered enough in the hands of our oppressors who are in bed with terrorists but derive pleasure in crushing peaceful agitators instead of addressing our genuine concerns.
“The two old men leading Cameroon and Nigeria – Paul Biya, and Muhammed Buhari, should be made to answer for the on-going secret genocide by security operatives and Fulani jihadists against the peace-loving indigenous people of Biafra, and Ambazonia. Why have they chosen to decimate us but spare, encourage and even grant amnesty to murderous Fulani bandits on rampage throughout the whole North and Nigeria.
“IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day. Also IPOB has declared from today 25th September 2021 that all Nigerian flag mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, Banks exceptional, IPOB leadership will communicate to Banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigeria flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.
“Every body must strictly adhere to this directives from IPOB leadership, we want to let the world know you that Biafraland is not Nigeria and shall not be. Don’t say I don’t know, a word is enough for the wise.”
