BOMBSHELL: Joe Igbokwe Threatens To Banish IPOB Instead, Says He’s A Prince

Joe Igbokwe

Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has reacted to the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to stop him from setting his foot in Igboland following his incessant anti-Biafra comments.

The group was reacting to the statement credited to Igbokwe where he urged Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the group, to quietly go home after securing his bail condition and stop what he called “the hopeless agitation for the realisation of Biafra.”

Igbokwe had said, “Now that he has been granted bail, he should just quietly go home and rest. We are not a candidate of Biafra. They are just dissipating their energy for nothing. I just hope he will just go home quietly and stop disturbing the peace of the country.

“We are not for Biafra. We can’t build Nigeria for others. The so-called Biafra is too small for us. Nigeria provides a big stage for us. We own this country.

“We are a major ethnic group in this country. How can you go for a small pond when you have Atlantic Ocean?”

“So Nnamdi Kanu should go home quietly. He should stop his reckless and stupid agitation. The agitation has no political or economic sense. It is a hopeless agitation that we are not interested in.

“They are just using it to make money from gullible ones. It is a collection of illiterates.”

While reacting, a frontline member of IPOB, Kanayo Nwogwugwu in a chat with Independent Newspaper, pointed out clearly that the group and the entire Igbo race had had enough of Igbokwe’s “thoughtless and reckless statement aimed at pleasing his paymasters in the Southwest.”

According to him, “The likes of Igbokwe should bury his head in shame for describing the Biafra project as hopeless and IPOB supporters as collection of illiterates.

“He should watch the television and read the dailies to see how prominent Igbo leaders, including children are celebrating his bail.

“If he doesn’t rein in his caustic tongue, we may be forced to restrict him to his new found land and banish him from setting his foot again on Igboland.”

Igbokwe who responded, said as a prince, they are the ones who bannish people and not the other way round also affirmed that freedom of speech as at the last time he checked was still sacrosanct as enshrined in the country.

The Lagos State publicity secretary of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, in a short update on his Facebook timeline with the caption “To my Brothers and Sisters in IPOB” said, “I am a prince in Nnewi with royal blood flowing in me. We are the ones who banish people. The last time I checked I still discovered that freedom of speech and freedom of expression are still sacrosanct in Nigeria. HISTORY IS MY WITNESS!”

We Are In Talks With UN For Biafra Referendum — IPOB

Published

IPOB at UN

The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has stated that they are in talks with the United Nations to hold a referendum for a sovereign state of Biafra.

In a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group claimed that they were making efforts to ensure the referendum which will be organized by the UN will take place soon.

According to Powerful, the referendum would be peaceful, and that everybody that lives within ‘Biafra territory’ would vote according to their conscience, calling a UN supervised referendum ‘a must’

He said, “It is quite clear and understandable to every citizen of Biafra and indeed the entire world that we need a referendum, where the people will exercise their right on whether or not they want self-rule or continued existence within Nigeria.

“A UN-supervised referendum is a must and a right for every human being in Nigeria to unequivocally state where they wish to belong.

“We in IPOB and Biafrans in general expect the United Nations to supervise this referendum, which will enable even those living beyond the boundaries of Biafra to equally determine their own fate. We want freedom for all, not just for Biafrans alone.”

“IPOB is making frantic efforts to ensure that this happens in the shortest possible time. We are not going to force or intimidate anyone or tribe because the will of the people is sacrosanct and must be respected. Each individual will be allowed to decide where he or she wishes to belong.”

We Do Not Expect Everybody To Support Biafra Agitation —⁠ Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnmadi Kanu on Sunday vowed they are prepared to sacrifice the last drop of their blood to restore Biafra saying he does not expect everybody that bears a Biafran name to support wholeheartedly the move IPOB is making to ensure that freedom is restored in Igboland.

“We urge the good people of Biafra not to be unduly burdened when certain comments designed to pander to the Fulani Caliphate are uttered by some individuals or politicians as we march ever so remorselessly to our destination which is freedom for Biafra.

Kanu said in a statement by his Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful that these misguided individuals should therefore be pitied rather than condemned.

“Our position against the flawed foundational structures upon which our British colonial masters constructed the fraudulent edifice Flora Shaw originally named Nigga-area later anglicised to Nigeria by her lover Frederick Luggard must not be allowed to stand.

“It doesn’t matter what ignorant neo-colonial slaves say or do, the Fulani Caliphate will continue to use unity of Nigeria as an excuse to continue their age long camping of mass murder, genocide and ethnic cleansing as millions watch on impotently under the guise of keeping a British colonial product one.”

He said: “Each person is entitled to his or her opinion about whether to be a free soul or to continue living as the glorified slave. For us in IPOB, we have chosen to be free but we shall let those that wish to be enslaved to continue to do so till eternity. It’s all about choice.”

He reiterated that “we are not expecting every person to support Biafra agitation as long as we know that currently 99.9 per cent of our people are in support of the movement IPOB is making towards our quest for Biafra independence.

“We are not perturbed by the utterances of a few compromised politicians and their shameless agents, who because of their desire to please their slave masters, are ever ready to sabotage our collective interest. A million of them cannot deter us in our quest and unstoppable march to restore Biafra in the shortest possible time.”

“We are equally aware that Biafran politicians serving Nigeria in Abuja and other places took an oath to be ‘faithful, loyal and honest’ to Nigeria which for some of them means subjugating their fellow citizens to the devilish whims of the caliphate masters in core north. So, we expect them to honour their pledge the same way those of us serving Biafra in different capacities have pledged to serve her with the last drop of our blood and make sure it comes into existence in our time.

“The ungodly statements from Biafra politicians is an encouragement to us because it only serves to fire up our determination to restore our lost identity and freedoms. We quite understand that they are under the influence of whatever it is their masters fed to them but in time they shall all be put to shame or worse.

“IPOB is well organised the world over and solidly built on an immovable rock. Mere words cannot change our strategy nor will it dent our resolve to restore Biafra in every truth and honesty. But our assurance to them is that in the end, they will regret their actions. The day of reckoning is fast approaching.”

“Nnamdi Kanu Is My Leader” — Uche Mefor Clears Air On Alleged Rift With IPOB Leader

Published

on

The Deputy leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Uche Mefor has cleared the air on purported rift with leader of the pro-Biafra group, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Recently, the social media space was filled with news of Mefor’s alleged disagreement with Kanu.

It all started after Mefor publicly advised that IPOB should not get involved with religious politics but rather focus on the struggle for an independent Biafra nation.

Mefor’s advise came against the backdrop of Kanu’s attack on Christianity and pastors during one of his recent broadcasts.

Clearing the air on the alleged misunderstanding between him and his Principal, Mefor wrote:

“The leader of IPOB is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, my leader.

“Our conscious quest for/commitment to the guarantee of all the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all is the only way of guaranteeing of the viable,virile and egalitarian Biafran state we aspire to. It is the Biafra with the capacity to defend her citizens from aggression by the enemies and where rule of law reigns supreme with the attendant strong regulatory and enforcement institutions.This is ultimately an inexonerable reality and the irreducible minimum. We have no choice here!

“**Note*This is part of our periodic public interest devotional on this our collective quest for our collective self-emancipation.”
