The Indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB) has threatened to attack the Ohanaeze Ndigbo again if it holds any event to canvass restructuring of Nigeria anywhere in Igbo land.
The group said that the attack they carried out at the Eastern Consultative Assembly a few backs was child’s play compared to what Ohanaeze will face if they organize any event on restructuring.
In a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Mr Emma powerful, the group revealed that it had information of an upcoming event being organized by Ohanaeze to promote restructuring, pointing out that nothing but a referendum will be accepted.
“What happened at Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) will be nothing compared to what shall become of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, should they attempt to convene any public meeting anywhere in Biafraland to discuss restructuring or how to keep Nigeria one.”
The pro-secession group also responded to a statement attributed to Ohanaeze Ndigbo that the group was made up of mostly inexperienced jobless people. It said;
“It is a well-known fact that IPOB is made up of both the old and young, with experienced public administrators all over the world that pilot the affairs of the movement. So the tag of inexperience is both misplaced and misconceived.
IPOB is well-organised movement and platform to restore Biafra and with it the lost dignity of a once proud race. A few Abuja based errand boys that call themselves politicians cannot understand why we have roundly rejected their approach which is nothing short of the appeasement of an obnoxious, brutal, oppressive alien regime from the Sahel.
Any day these so-called Igbo leaders gather in public, we will make sure we show them how upset we are. The era of selling the collective interest of the masses to the highest bidder has come to an end. All we want is referendum not restructuring; we want Biafra not Nigeria.
We have buried too many people, we have lost too many souls, we are pained by the innocent who are still languishing in illegal detention all over Nigeria and we are enraged by the betrayal of those we call socio-political leaders. Only the total restoration of Biafra will suffice, anything else is mere waste of time”.
