Press Statement


Published By Family Writers

The British Government which is the closest ally of the Nigerian Government must, as a mark of exemplary leadership, guide Muhammadu Buhari and his colleagues to organize a BIAFREXIT akin to the recently organized BREXIT. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) congratulate the Government and people of Britain for organizing the BREXIT vote and applaud the British Government for respecting the wishes of her citizens. However, it smacks of hypocrisy that the same David Cameron that initiated the BREXIT vote has been propping up the Buhari‘s Government in their murderous acts of suppressing the quest by Biafrans to exit from Nigeria. This leaves Biafrans to ask if David Cameron’s hypocrisy is because Biafrans are blacks and if black Africans are inferior to white British people?

Why does David Cameron think that what is good for the white British people is not good for the black people of Africa especially Biafrans? Mr. David Cameron, in organizing BREXIT is taking advantage of the rights of people to make their choice. But in denying Biafrans the right to choose their own nation, David Cameron is telling Biafrans that they are inferior because of the colour of their skin. David Cameron is directly telling Biafrans that because they come from an inferior race, they do not deserve to exist as a nation of their own choice.

There are indications that Scotland will restart their agitation for separation from Britain and both David Cameron and his would-be successor will not stop them nor will they roll out tanks and other lethal weapons to mow down the Scots like the British-supported Nigeria has been doing to Biafrans. We have to re-emphasize here that self-determination is a right that must be exercised by all free people. Even Donald Trump, the presidential candidate of the Republican Party in the USA tweeted on the 24th of June, 2016 that “Self-determination is the sacred right of all free peoples.” By blocking the self-determination efforts of Biafrans through overt and covert supports to the killer called Muhammadu Buhari, is David Cameron telling the world that Biafrans are still in slavery despite the abolition of slavery in 1833?

IPOB have also observed with keen interest the consistent British Government’s official policy of not supporting any Christian nation that needs support for independence or that is going through any form of internal/external aggression. On the other hand, the British Government have always supported a Muslim nation against a Christian nation in any conflict just as they supported the Muslim-dominated Nigeria to carry out genocide against a Christian Biafran nation between 1967 and 1970. While IPOB is not against the religious inclinations of any nation, we do note with concern the British Government’s penchant for supporting Muslim nation against a Christian nation.

We also note the faulty argument by David Cameron and the British Government that they do not want to alter the pre-independence territorial integrity of Nigeria. But this same territorial integrity of Nigeria was tampered with by the ceding of Bakassi to Cameroun. We recall that in 1982 Britain went to war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands but this same Britain never supported Nigeria to prevent the ceding of Bakassi to Cameroun and this distortion of the pre-independence territorial integrity of Nigeria is the same excuse used by Britain to continue to keep Biafra under Nigeria.

From the success of BREXIT, we call upon the incoming Prime Minister to work with Buhari to speedily organize BIAFREXIT. In addition, we warn the incoming Prime Minister that failure to probe the criminality of Buhari against the Biafrans will make Britain culpable in the re-enacted 21st century Biafran genocide. It is unfair and hypocritical that the British Government will allow free expression of the wishes of her citizens while on the other hand supporting Buhari in his brutal mass-murder of Biafrans who are exercising their God-given freedom to determine their nationality. We believe that the days of slavery are gone and the black race should not be treated as an inferior and expendable race.

The time has come for BIAFREXIT and Britain must support it.

Spokespersons for IPOB


  1. The United Kingdom EU referendum has taught all peoples a big lesson of how national and international issues and relationship should be handled in the modern world. The killing and destruction life and property of the ancient world has been scrapped and replaced with wisdom, understanding and progress of the technological modern days.
    Nigerian government should embrace this modern system of peaceful resolutions instead of the might is right which does nobody any good. The federal government of Nigerian should demonstrate to the world that Nigeria can conduct her affairs peacefully without the trumpets of war and bloodshed.
    Nigeria should conduct referendum on Biafran which only those who are agitating will vote and freely choose where they want to belong.
    Any unbiased observer will testify that the BIAFRAN agitators are not ready to throw in the towel. To force them to continue living in Nigeria is a terrible disservice to Nigeria which will do country to backwardness and deterioration. But a free referendum will decide the issue once and for all.

    1. This is the voice of the people of Biafra. This is my voice and the voice of my whole family. The voice òf my children born and unborn. PLEASE BIAFRA HAVE TO GO!

  2. The result of the decision of Britain to leave the European Union demonstrates the working of democracy. Democracy seeks the opinions of the governed. Elected officials respect and uphold the wishes of the citizens. Force is never an instrument of choice used by the elected officials towards their citizens for making their wishes known. Common sense and critical thinking are the tools people in a democratic nation use to solve national problems. Democratic nations realize that peace and the preservation of human lives are more important than any other thing in the world. They also strive to maintain the perception other people hold for them. My question to elected British leaders and its citizens is; 'Have you extended the same freedom of choice you are now enjoying to the people of Biafra? If you have not, make it your priority to do so because Biafrans are under constant agony, every day second by second killings, and never ending humiliation in Nigeria under the leadership of Muhammed Buhari. Britain, Biafra wants its freedom from Nigeria just as Britain realized her freedom and independence from the European Union[EU]. Put this in your consciousness that Biafran freedom must be attained and nothing will hamper our resolve to fulfill our dream.

  3. An excellent press release on BIAFREXIT by IPOB spokespersons. However, it is a mistake and waste of time to be asking and begging Buhari and Nigeria government to organize a referendum for Biafra. They will not do that. Biafrans will have to conduct a referendum and send the result to Buhari, UN and other global community for them to start the process of granting Biafra independence from Nigeria. It’s also insane to compare BREXIT with Biafra’s independence or even comparing a civilized people with the zoo Nigeria. Africa is the reason Whites do not have any regard for Black people worldwide.

  4. l applaud your idea of the citizens of Biafra to organize their own referendum and to send the result of the referendum to Mohammed Buhari, the Nigerian captain of the ship. Before Biafrans carry out this exercise, It is rational to follow these guidelines;
    1. Get Muhammed Buhari notified officially through letter. In the letter, Biafrans will give Mr. Buhari a length of time to call for a referendum. If Buhari does not honor Biafran people's request, Biafrans will begin to plan for the referendum
    2. Biafrans will get the United nations, European Union, and Organization of African Unity informed of our intention. These organizations are important for various reasons among which are as observers and protectors of the lives of Biafrans from the bullets of heartless,hateful and blood hungry Nigerian army and police.
