The Indigenous peoples of Biafra, IPOB, have once again taken to the streets, in a peaceful protest, to celebrate the re-appearance of their Leader , Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who went missing after the Nigeria army invaded his father’s compound on September 14, 2017.
The assassination attempt was unsuccessful but left about 28 innocent people dead in and around the compound.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was the target of the kill mission miraculously vanished from the premises only to resurface at the wailing wall in Jerusalem, Israel about a year later.
This peaceful demonstration slowed down commercial activities in major South eastern cities.
Demonstrators were seen chanting pro-Biafra songs, carrying pro-Biafra Banners and flyers, some with the portrait of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
They also reiterated their earlier stand of no elections in Biafra land unless a referendum was conducted.
There’s not been any reports of harassment and intimidation by the Nigerian security forces which is usually not the case, although its still too early to conclude.
In a press statement released by IPOB media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, he warned the Nigeria handlers that the 2019 general election would be totally boycotted in the entire Biafra land.
He said :
“This is to inform the general public and entire world that IPOB Volunteers marched along all major streets and roads of Biafraland today to register their happiness over the second coming and reappearance of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Jerusalem, the state of Israel last month.
“Our leader’s reappearance in Israel after the Nigerian government and her security forces including the Nigerian Army, Air force and Naval forces invaded his compound at Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia in Abia State last year September is clearly an indication to all and sundry that God Almighty (Chukwu Okike Abiama) is behind the struggle for Biafra liberation.
“Biafrans are equally today showcasing to the world that we are ready to boycott every Nigerian elections come 2019 especially presidential election next year.
“Our march today on the roads and streets across Biafraland must send signals to politicians and saboteurs among us that Biafrans are determined to leave the prison called Nigeria where British
government experimented to lead black Africans and other black nations across the globe but failed to live up to the expectations for over 100 years because of the Hausa Fulani caliphate domination.
“IPOB rally and march today been 23rd November, 2018 is ongoing in all the States across Biafraland like Rivers, Enugu, Abia, Anambra, Delta, Imo, Ebonyi, Cross Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa and other Biafra clans and tribes fraudulently caved into Kogi, Benue and Edo States, the unrelented efforts by IPOB family worldwide to restore Biafra sovereignty must continue unless Nigeria Government and it’s handlers give us date for Biafra referendum to ascertain whether our people wants to continue stay in Nigeria or not.
“We are much aware that some unscrupulous individuals and groups including those Biafran stocks who works with Nigeria Government and those who prefer to be slaves in their own fathers land to
the detriment of Biafra restoration project.
“IPOB is divinely ordained to restore Biafra sovereignty out of this enclave called Nigeria. We are coming to show Nigerians and it’s handlers including their security apparatus what is called civil disobedience because IPOB is more of intellectuals than daft.
The peaceful demonstrations were still ongoing at the time this report was filed but we’ll keep you posted on our Facebook page as events unfold.
