The Indigenous People of Biafra on Monday said no intimidation would make it to surrender its fight for an independent Biafra nation, Punch has reported.
The group described the proscription of the group by the South-East governors as well as the declaration of it as a terrorist organisation by the Defence Headquarters as null and void. The group maintained that the only way to end the agitation would be to organise a referendum to determine a sovereign state of Biafra.
Speaking to journalists in a statement made available to journalists in Awka, Anambra State by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, chided the government for declaring IPOB as a terrorist organization while Fulani herdsmen continue to unleash terror on Nigerians without anyone getting arrested or labeled a terrorist group.
It accused the Federal Government of having a secret agenda to exterminate the Igbo race, adding that the Abia State Commissioner of Police was playing a rehashed script.
The group said “We the family of Indigenous People of Biafra and its leadership worldwide under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to place on record that the newly appointed Commissioner of Police posted to Abia State is trying very hard to please his Northern Arewa masters by conducting himself in a manner that is clear to all, as complimenting the murderous scripts of the Nigerian Army and Igbo governors as handed down to them by Abuja cabal.”
