YOU’RE UNINFORMED, SOUTH-SOUTH IS A PLOY TO DIVIDE US, IPOB REPLIES EX-GOV

YOU’RE UNINFORMED, SOUTH-SOUTH IS A PLOY TO DIVIDE US,  IPOB REPLIES EX-GOV

Published By Family Writers


From JEFF AMECHI AGBODO, Onitsha

THE Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has again given former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Obong Victor Attah hard knocks over his latest comment that the group is misguided.

IPOB Media and Publicity sec­retary, Mr. Emma Powerful, while reacting to Attah’s interview with Saturday Sun, described him as uninformed.

According to the group “Attah is not alone in the unreasonable assertions of many, I would say, uninformed elder statesmen who are like the proverbial old man who sits at home and watch the she goat deliver while tethered.

“On what basis did Victor At­tah base his allegation that IPOB is being misguided? Is IPOB mis­guided in our quest for the resto­ration of our fatherland Biafra, or for deciding to opt out of a One Nigeria that has failed to work since the amalgamation of 1914 to which the founding fathers, Sir Ahmadu Belo, Obafemi Awolo­wo and Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe at various times made various state­ments that point to the fact that there were no basis for the unity of Nigeria.

“This was also reiterated by General Yakubu Gowon after the Nigeria/Biafra war? Is it not clear to Obong Victor Attah that a Ni­geria where the Biafrans are the targeted people at any slightest misunderstanding is not work­able? IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu was able to re­discover our root”.

“We are able to discover that the fragmentation of Biafra land from the original South Eastern State to East central State, until now, South-south are a ploy to divide us. And an elder states­man like Obong Attah should be able to direct his people on the marginalization of his people. But no, he is so blind to see that Nigeria wants to impoverish his people”.

“But IPOB, under the leader­ship of Kanu was able to see the destruction of the Nigerian state on our people and the lies they propagated against Biafrans by making us hate our brothers. Now, this people who Obong Victor Attah is alleging is mis­guided has realised that we are one and brothers. If this is what Victor Attah term as being mis­guided, then that is of good pur­pose”.

“Now, IPOB led by Kanu has been able to expose all the atrocities of the Nigerian state in the unimaginable marginaliza­tion of Biafrans to the extent that over 90% of all the oil blocks in the so-called Niger Delta region of Biafraland is owned by the northerners. Is this exposé an act of being misguided? Well if this is so, then, the misguidance is in the right direction”.

“IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu, started the propagation of Biafra self-de­termination in the most civilized manner. By not taking up arms and by utilizing the provisions of the charter of the rights of In­digenous people to self-determi­nation. If all these amount to be­ing misguided, is it when IPOB turn lawless just like the Nige­rian government is lawless, that Victor Attah will declare IPOB as moving in the right direction?”

On the allegation that Igbo el­ders are not supporting the agi­tation for Biafra, Powerful said: “That is also not true. A lot of Igbo elders support the Biafra ag­itation even though they are not making public, the declaration of their support while some people mounted the platform to propa­gate a total sell out of Biafra land to the Hausa-Fulani hegemony.

“Dr. Ike Ekweremadu once threatened that he was going to move a motion for the secession of the sovereign state of Biafra when the North wanted to move a motion for a separate caliphate for the Boko Haram. These are Igbo elders who believe that the agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra is a legitimate one. A Bishop of the catholic church in Enugu is an open advocate of the need to restore the state of Biafra. There are millions of Igbo elders who may not be open in their support but will in the fullness of time.

“But then, there are the Hau­sa-Fulani Slaves who are out to sabotage the struggle for the restoration of Biafra and have been receiving and sharing blood money from the government in power who are using these abom­inable Igbo elders to undermine the Biafra restoration effort.

“These are the Ohaneze Ndig­bo and all the corrupt politi­cians in Biafra land who are not ashamed to feed on the crumbs that fell off the tables of their Hausa-Fulani slave masters. If Obong Victor Attah is referring to these disgruntled class of Igbo elders, IPOB do not require their support. These are saboteurs who will have no place in Biafra when Biafra is restored.”

On the allegation that IPOB has lost track, “then we ask him, in what ways? Our leader Kanu was arrested DSS, and the IPOB did not go violence, instead, We took to a lawful peaceful pro­test. Does this amount to losing track?.

“The IPOB decided to follow the rule of law to free its leader, does that amount to losing track. IPOB members on peaceful pro­test were massacred in numbers, yet IPOB maintained the line of peace, is this what Victor Attah meant by IPOB losing track

“Right now the IPOB has taken Nigeria government to the ICC at the Hague to address the issue of human right abus­es. Does this amount to losing track? IPOB has also sued the Nigerian law enforcement agen­cies to the ECOWAS Court to address all the injustices taking place against the leader of IPOB in the Nigeria Court. Is this what Attah, who has opted to pitch his tenth with saboteurs call losing track.

“Let it be made known to Obong Victor Attah that nobody can dictate the pace of the Bi­afra Restoration effort except the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to whom all IPOB reserve their loyalty. We can not be stam­peded into any form of illegal­ity no matter the pressure by the government of Muhammadu Buhari.

“We don’t know the Biafra he is talking about died with the instruments of surrender it is not this Biafra Nnamdi Kanu is pi­loting and if he have the docu­ments where Philip Efiong and co signed for the surrender let him bring it to the world.”
