PHILIP EFFIONG JNR, TIM MODU AND OTHERS WELCOMED BY IPOB IN THE ONGOING BIAFRA GENOCIDE EXHIBITION IN LONDON

The family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the United kingdom, heartily welcomed late General Philip Effiong's son - Philip Effiong Junior, Colonel T. C. Modu (Amalidike of Arondizuogu) and other members of IPOB leadership in London, for Biafra Genocide Exhibition. The event which kicked off on Friday 16th August 2019, holds at Goldsmiths University in London.

The Exhibition will showcase criminal starvation to death as well as the unwarranted military attacks carried out on Biafrans by the Nigerian government with the full backing of Britain. This spake of murderous onslaught commenced in 1966.

IPOB leadership, in a statement signed by it's spokesperson, Comrade Emma Powerful, said that the Genocide Exhibition "will draw the attention of good people of the world, especially the British who were not aware of what their government did to Biafrans between 1967 and 1970".

Recall that late General Philip Effiong  whose sons arrived for the Genocide Exhibition, hail from Akwa Ibom State in Biafraland. He was the second in command to late General Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu in the Republic of Biafra  during the Nigeria/Biafra war. In that war which received logistic and other supports of the British government, over 3.5 million Biafran children, women and men were gruesomely massacred.

At the end of hostilities in 1970, the Nigerian military government ordered that all Biafran currencies must be immediately deposited in one bank account or become outlawed. It is noteworthy to state here that after compliance, the same Nigerian government ordered that all former Biafran account holders be paid only a paltry sum of twenty pounds each, regardless of the total amount in personal deposits.

Up until now, over five hundred (500) Biafrans especially of IPOB stock have been killed, with others kidnapped and incarcerated by the Nigerian security forces as a result of agitations for the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafran.
