The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied claim that it doctored and circulated recent video where member of the Boko Haram killed several Nigerian soldiers.
Recall that the Nigerian Army had accused the pro-Biafra group of being behind the trending video that purported that Boko Haram terrorists captured and killed several troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in the North East.
IPOB said it was a shame for the Army to involve the group in their futile attempt impotence and failed effort to fight Boko Haram.
Reacting to the allegation, IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful berated the Army, saying they belittled themselves by involving IPOB in issue of doctoring a video.
Powerful said that IPOB have more important things to do than engaging in doctoring a video where soldiers were killed.
“This recent statement from the thoroughly disgraceful, undignified institution called Nigerian military accusing IPOB of being behind the recent trending video where Boko Haram members torturing and humiliating Nigerian army personnel is laughable.
“This unguarded, shameful and thoroughly unsubstantiated accusation is very typical of an army that specializes in attacking civilian populations in the south but cringe at the sight of a well armed opposition in the north.
“It is quite pathetic how the Nigeria army would belittle themselves so shamelessly in the eyes of the world by involving IPOB in their futile attempt to deflect attention from their impotence and failed effort to fight a terrorism menace they themselves created in Nigeria. The Nigerian Army must understand that Biafra is not Nigeria.
“IPOB have more important things to do than engaging in doctoring a video that is so clear for all to see. Maybe Nigerian the Army think the world is as undiscerning as their typical Nigerian. Rather than coming out in public to make a complete fool of themselves; Buratai and his Nigerian Army should invite forensic experts to corroborate their claim if they are confident they are speaking the truth.
“The video of Boko Haram torturing and humiliating the cowardly Nigerian Army that specialize in committing crimes against unarmed populations in Biafra is real and verifiable. IPOB has nothing to do with the trending video and cannot involve itself with this brotherly spat between Boko Haram and Nigeria Army because they have the same Fulanisation agenda for Nigeria.
“Nigeria Army and Boko Haram are both terrorist organisations pursuing the same goal with the only difference being that Nigerian army specialise exclusively, in attacking civilians in the east.
“This shameful statement from Nigeria Army proves that the Nigeria Army and her sisters security outfits in Nigeria have lost control of their phony war against Boko Haram and as usual are looking to blame IPOB for their pitiful plight.
“Northern elders (allegedly) formed and sponsored Boko Haram to perfect their plans to islamize and Fulanize Nigeria and to make Jonathan’s government ungovernable which they succeeded in doing. We must not forget that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was named the chief negotiator by Boko Haram for the failed talks in Saudi Arabia in 2014.
“Nigeria soldiers should leave IPOB alone and focus on fighting the monster they created.
“We pity Nigeria Army and gullible Nigerians who cannot see the inevitable violent collapse of Nigeria. What is happening today in Nigeria is the worst form of organized state sponsored hypocrisy.
Recruiting Boko Haram members and other terror groups into the Nigerian Army, Police, DSS and other security formations in Nigeria is a recipe for disaster which IPOB is rightly sensitizing the world about.
“Nigeria is imploding gradually and no amount of lies against IPOB will avert the impending doom of the failed British contraption”, Powerful said.

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.”
