IPOB OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
IPOB PRESS RELEASE
11th January 2020
We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu commend South West governors, elders, stakeholders and politicians for their doggedness and courage to protect their people and their region from the evil hands of Fulani terrorists herdsmen and Nigeria government jihadi soldiers- the systematic strategy and effort of the ruling Fulani cabal to continually provide financial and logistical support to Fulani terrorists and Islamic extremists in military and police uniforms to rampage and kill innocent citizens at will.
This is not the first time in recent weeks that our leader's position and approach has been vindicated by events and utterances from other ethnic groups within Nigeria. The inescapable truth remains that Bishop Kukah's commendable utterances about the Jihadi intent of the present regime in Nigeria and formation of a Yoruba vigilante by OPC are all lines of reasoning and event consistently canvassed and championed by IPOB in the past. The fact remains that Nigeria as presently constituted is the greatest threat to life and peace.
The Yoruba decision and effort to launch Operation Amotekun security outfit just like our leader launched BSS in 2017 is most commendable. What we find horribly appalling however is that those who were at the forefront of misrepresenting and condemning our leader for having the vision and foresightedness to challenge Fulani terrorism in Nigeria are today praise singing the introduction of Amotekun. Even the shamelessly treacherous Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East Governors Forum that actively connived with their Fulani masters to launch a deadly military invasion of Biafraland on the back of the launch of BSS are today openly praising Yoruba leaders for backing OPC's Amotekun project when they themselves heartlessly sold out IPOB for a pot of porridge.
Nothwithstanding the barefaced envy and jealousy directed towards IPOB by the Efulefu political class and sections of uninformed talking heads, we IPOB are delighted that we continue to set the pace of radical thinking and social change within and outside Nigeria. IPOB wholeheartedly welcome Amotekun and say good morning to those who out of ignorance, poor sense of vision, lack of reasoning and self consuming jealousy fought against the formation BSS. They should cover their faces in shame if they have any face left after this.
We believe the time has come for all those who ignorantly questioned the modus operadi of IPOB and the vision of Biafra liberation as boldly preached by our leader to tender an unreserved public apology. History and events have continued to vindicate IPOB and its methods. The time has come for every sensible person and ethnic group to swallow their shame and publicly acknowledge that IPOB is always right.
Now that South-West Governors and politicians have openly and commendably armed and supported OPC militants to defend Yorubaland isn't this a clear indication that the black market and thoughtless proscription of IPOB by Fulani government supported by Ohaneze Ndigbo, South-East Governors and Lagos/Abuja politicians only succeeded in making the entire Eastern region a fertile ground for Fulani Jihadi expansionism and impetus for Miyetti Allah terrorism and territorial expasion? IPOB remains the one and only movement psychologically designed and primed to defend the entire East against any aggression from Fulani terrorists. This too is an inescapable fact.
It is about time people acknowledged openly and without shame that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is always right.
COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.
This Amotekun is a real bastard clincher. Look how the whole north is upset by it. Miyetti Allah has been issuing threats. Now they are playing politics – the latest is that if the southwest insist on Amotekun they will risk missing 2023 presidency. Like seriously! Seems Miyetti Allah is worst hit by Amotekun. But was it not the same Miyetti Allah spitting hail and brimstone that the presidency will never leave the north come 2023? Was it not same Miyetti Allah that floated armed Fulani vigilante groups in the Southwest? Were the Fulani armed "Vigilantes" not mounting roadblocks on Southwest roads and robbing the people dry? How much more humiliations can a people endure before they wake up? Amotekun is forcing them to use the lure of presidency as bait to tempt the Southwest to abandon the noble effort. Now there's no better evidence that Amotekun is a divine project. All the demons are scampering away.
Now the Southeast should watch it. The north will now try to use the region against the Southwest. They would want to further deepen the divide between Southeast and Southwest. And willing tools are always handy. A few bite of damned porridge and many will sell their birthright. Southeast should watch it. Already the so called Ohaneze Ndigbo has issued a come-get-me offer. Its president was quoted to have suggested that APC will claim more southeast states before 2023. The undertone of that statement is unambiguous.
It may even be that the bee which stung PDP out of Douglas House was hatched by Ohaneze. It may even be that Ohaneze has aligned with the north already to fill the vacant house-help positions the southwest has vacated by the clear statement of Amotekun. Who knows! We have a situation where we have often been our own enemies. After all operation python dance in the Southeast was the idea of Ohaneze and our criminal governors. They only invited Buratai for the spoil.
