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.”
