PERSISTENT TERRORIST ATTACKS ON BIAFRANS BY THE NIGERIAN STATE
From June 17th to June 19th, 2015, the Nigerian State bombed Akwa Ibom and Cross Rivers States with the banned NAPALM BOMBS killing scores of innocent Biafrans and leaving some of them with severe burns on their skins. The reason adduced for these indiscriminate and heartless bombings was that they are targeting kidnappers but these two states are never known to have any history of kidnappings. On the 31st of July, 2015, agents of the Nigerian State shot and killed a defenceless Biafran at his shop in Ariaria International Market located in Aba, Abia State in the Biafran region. Investigation revealed that these agents wanted to smoke cannabis and wanted the victim to provide them with the cannabis but he politely told them that he does not consume nor keep such in his possession and he was shot dead. On August ih, 2015, at Whimpy Junction in Obio Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State in Biafra region, a Nigerian Policeman shot dead a Biafran bus driver from Ogoniland. The reason for extra-judicial killing of this Biafran was because he did not have money to give to the Policeman and the Policeman fatally shot him.
On Sunday, August 30th, 2015, Nigerian Navy personnel opened fire at over 10,000 unarmed Biafrans who were peacefully giving out fliers and leaflets to fellow Biafrans and educating them on the need for the nation of Biafra. This incidence which left many dead and thousands seriously injured from stray bullets, took place at Onitsha in Anambra State in Biafran region. A benevolent Police Officer who was at the point of the incidence requested the Naval personnel to stop the mayhem but he was promptly informed by the leader of the Naval Team that they were shooting at Biafrans based on instructions from their Commander-in-Chief. Pictures of some of the corpses of the affected Biafrans are attached to this notice. Since the beginning of September 2015, Biafrans have been severally abducted by the Nigerian State as ordered by the country's Police Chief.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) hereby bring the attention of the world to these ceaseless terrorist acts and abductions perpetrated against Biafrans by the Nigerian State. We are informing the world that we cannot stand idly by and watch Biafrans being kidnapped and murdered by the Nigerian Government. Biafrans have the fundamental human right to defend themselves against these terrorist acts being visited upon them by the Nigerian State.
It is very important to note that the Nigerian Government tarted these terrorist acts against the Biafrans and NOT the other way round. The world is hereby put on notice that Biafrans will henceforth exercise their fundamental human right to self-defence. What we shall not accept is a situation where the Nigerian State, and their terrorist-supporting allies, will embark on smear campaign of labelling IPOB as a terrorist organization when actually it is the Nigerian State that is terrorizing Biafrans. We shall resist any attempt to tag us as terrorists just because we are merely defending ourselves and stopping the Nigerian State from exterminating us through their act of terrorism. The Nigerian Government had already killed over 6 million Biafrans beginning from June 22nd, 1945 in Jos to January 12th, 1970 and the killing is still ongoing. Biafrans shall defend themselves in order to put a stop to further genocide and this should NEVER be construed as an act of terrorism but rather an act of self-defence.
The real terrorists are the Nigerian State and her agents. The world should take note!!!
