The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday warned against attack on Ndigbo in any part of Nigeria, saying the consequences are very grave.
IPOB also condemned the attacks, certain utterances and anti-Igbo sentiments allegedly emanating from some parts of the South West and the North.
IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful also condemned what it called “the brazen attempt to threaten, intimidate and stop Igbo Biafrans from voting for the candidate of their choice in the Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday.
“We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and its leadership condemn in its entirety, certain utterances and anti-Igbo sentiments emanating from certain quarters in Yoruba West and Fulani controlled North.
“The brazen attempt to threaten, intimidate and stop Igbo Biafrans from voting for the candidates of their choice is unacceptable to any right thinking person and it is a confirmation that Biafrans are not wanted in Nigeria.
“This is a state of affairs we are not prepared to tolerate. Those hatching devilish plans to attack Biafrans and their business interests in other parts of Nigeria must understand the grave consequences their actions portend.
“We must put it to the knowledge of every Nigerian who wishes to know that Biafrans will not allow a repeat of 1966 when Igbo families were massacred in their hundreds of thousands across Nigeria.”
