2019: Ohanaeze Ndigbo and IPOB reconcile

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and Ohanaeze Ndigbo have put aside their differences and reconciled. The two groups have been at each other’s throats over the secession of Igbo land from Nigeria.

This development was made public by a statement released by the Deputy Leader of IPOB, Mazi Uche Mefor in Enugu on Saturday.

The statement reads, “Following an important meeting with some respectable Igbo elders, the representatives of IPOB and leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo earlier today July 6, 2017 in Enugu, under the distinguished chairmanship of the very eminent Prof. Ben Nwabueze; IPOB High Command hereby mandate that all forms of verbal attacks and name calling on all media platforms against Ohaneze Ndigbo seize with immediate effect.

No IPOB family member should disparage Ohaneze Ndigbo or its leadership until further notice.This is strictly to give room for a number of representations and demands made by IPOB, to those present at the meeting to be given due attention within the shortest possible time-frame,under an atmosphere devoid of rancour.

The meeting stressed among other things the need for our people, who are presently under siege in parts of Enugu State, to recognize the urgency and need to synergize and constitute a common front against all forms of threats to our existence as a people.

Should this gesture by IPOB, in the face of well-documented betrayal and blackmail by the political class be taken for granted, IPOB shall have no option but to stand in the gap to defend the aspirations and collective will of the people of Biafra against every enemy. IPOB, as the most potent and largest freedom fighting outfit on earth, remains focused, determined and resolute. Our unalloyed commitment to a referendum in pursuit of our emancipation remain sacrosanct and insurmountable.”
