The Indigenous Individuals of Biafra, IPOB, on Wednesday, mocked stakeholders within the South-East, saying the best mistake some members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Igbo political elites and South-East governors made was conniving with enemies of Ndigbo to proscribe the group.
IPOB, in an announcement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Highly effective, alleged that by conniving with the enemies to eliminate IPOB, which is the one defence line of Biafra nation, the South-East governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Igbo political elites concerned have solely succeeded in opening Igboland for fixed assault and humiliation by terrorists-herdsmen and bandits.
The IPOB assertion was entitled “IPOB to South-East Governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Political Elites: You proscribed IPOB to impress your northern masters, now they’ve unleashed terrorists in opposition to your villages”.
Asking them how they’d fared “after the treacherous act,” IPOB mentioned: “Conniving with the enemies to eliminate IPOB which is the one defence line of Biafra nation is the best mistake made by South-East governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and a few self- acclaimed Igbo political leaders.
“The treacherous and ignoble position of South-East governors, some self-acclaimed Igbo political elites and Ohanaeze Ndigbo within the proscription of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, and the next invasion of Afaraukwu Umuahia nation residence of our chief, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on September 14, 2017 and what Igboland goes by now within the palms of terrorist-herdsmen and bandits are sufficient lesson for traitors.
“It’s a fixed reminder of the Igbo adage that claims “once you kill your hero in an inside squabble, throughout an exterior struggle, you should keep in mind him’.
“Three years down the road, we need to ask these traitors, how have they and Igboland fared within the palms of their northern masters and their terrorist-herdsmen and bandits?
“The reward of treachery is disgrace and everlasting remorse! By conniving with the enemies to eliminate IPOB that’s the solely defence line of Biafra nation, these saboteurs have opened our land for fixed assaults and humiliation.
“First, of their shameful bid to appease and impress their northern masters for political reward, these traitors outlawed IPOB, a peaceable motion and paved the best way for its eventual proscription as a terrorist organisation.
“Ever since then, how have they protected or defended Biafraland in opposition to incessant unprovoked assaults? To their disgrace, Igboland and your entire Biafra territory have been rendered susceptible because the enemies on complete annihilation and conquest mission have turned it right into a slaughter floor.
“It was their treachery that gave the Nigerian Military the effrontery to raid the house of Nnamdi Kanu on September 14, 2020 beneath the guise of Operation Python Dance.
“Their mission was to kill him in any respect price, however God thwarted their evil plans.
“Not carried out with the latest bloodbath of 21 unarmed Biafrans at Emene by the depraved Nigeria safety brokers, the Military, DSS and Police have now resorted to house-to-house abduction of IPOB members and different Biafra agitators.
“The query is: the place are the treacherous Igbo governors, political elites and Ohanaeze that proscribed IPOB?”
