Secessionist group the Indigenous People of Biafra has distanced itself from the alleged fake White House visit/referendum talk concocted by one Candy Stallworth, a self-acclaimed IPOB principal officer in the US.
The US-Based lady who claimed to be the mobilization officer of the group in the US had earlier claimed that members of the pro-Biafra group were invited by the White House on July 21st for a date to be fixed for referendum for the Biafra agitators (read the STORY HERE).
However, on July 21st, the scheduled date for the hoax meeting, ORIENTAL TIMES discovered that Candy was in the White House alone where she went live on Facebook, made video of her lonely self in the passage of the capitol building and claimed she was with ‘all US senators’ though no single shadow of a human being was seen around her during the video time.
Recall that she had also claimed earlier that the White House listed on its official website names of five (5) IPOB members expected as quests in the US Capitol (Read it HERE).
Few moments later, she stepped out from the building and concluded she had a successful meeting with the Senators and once again alleged September 12 was picked for a referendum.
Reacting to the incident, IPOB said it is investigating Candy for fraud related offences and gross misconduct following recurring evident reports from United States, United Kingdom and Abuja chapter of the group.
IPOB also warned its members and supporters to however disregard any further Biafra activities carried out by Candy.
The group apologised for failing to debunk the news from inception.
In a short statement made available to ORIENTAL TIMES, IPOB said “You are all strongly advised to dissociate yourselves from her Biafran activities as She reserves the right to seek legal redress/defence when the IPOB investigation reports are made public.
Her long advertised nonsensical phantom White House visit is an affirmed Propaganda that must be discarded forthwith. This level of shame will never be visited on IPOB again.
All premature announcements regarding high profile visits should not longer be approved, unless announced by our Supreme Leader or via our Headquarters. Thus anybody generating such news or comments henceforth will be banned immediately from all IPOB activities & structures. Take heed please.”

Imo: How Nnamdi Kanu Reacted To Mbaka’s Prophecy On Ihedioha’s Removal
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has lampooned Catholic priest and Spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka for predicting the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement that saw Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha removed as Imo State Governor and replaced with Hope Uzodinma.
Reacting to the verdict of the apex court during a live broadcast on his Radio Biafra, Kanu described Mbaka as a “a village informant for Almajiri.”
“Father Ejike Mbaka Is Now A Village Informant For Almajiri,” the IPOB leader echoed in disappointment.
Kanu further said: “If we allow Hope Uzodinma we are finished as a people, we must not allow Fulani to dictate for us from Abuja, allow Imo people to decide.
“Fulani needs to control who controls you, hence the need to bring in Hope Uzodinma.“
He also added: “If IPOB allows this gibberish in Imo State then they will circulate it to every state. So IPOB cannot allow it, Hope Uzodimma cannot rule Imo, rather call for a fresh election let the people of Imo decide with foreign observers present.”
