IPOB Press Release
Following the numerous sponsored criminal activities of the enemies of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB restoration Movement to smear our reputation, we the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi KANU The Great, once again ask the public to ignore the concocted lies associating IPOB with the burning of INEC facilities, owning a bomb factory, and destructions of electoral party paraphernalia in Biafraland .
It's obvious that the Nigeria government and its compromised Security Agencies are working with the criminals to blackmail IPOB because we have refused to give up on Biafra restoration. They set INEC offices on fire and said it is ESN. They assassinated politicians and medical practitioners to damage our hallowed name and say IPOB did it. We know that they want to rig the elections in the southeast against Peter Obi and blame it on IPOB and ESN. They burnt markets and different properties of our people and tagged it on IPOB. They declared a 5-day ignored sit-at-home and killed our people and even killed a pregnant mother using IPOB and ESN identity. All these activities were sponsored by the Fulani terrorists government of Nigeria, and that's why there haven't been any arrest or prosecution of the perpetrators. They targeted to blackmail IPOB locally and internationally.
Today, they are in disarray because we have known their plans, and we have exposed them.
These criminals were groomed to ensure they demonise IPOB and ESN. Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the DOS members established ESN for one reason; That is to protect our people after countless number of our communities were invaded and many people murdered without mercy by Fulani terrorists herdsmen. Prior to ESN formation, the Nigeria government abandoned our people to be massacred by these imported Fulani terrorists.
Thanks to ESN, who has been able to secure many parts of our bushes and forests that were hitherto occupied by Fulani terrorists.
As they could not defeat IPOB with imported terrorists, they recruited internal criminals and cultists to infiltrate IPOB and ESN, yet the IPOB leadership decoded and exposed their agents. They thought that kidnapping Mazi Nnamdi KANU and sponsoring internal enemies would weaken the struggle, but they forgot that the foundation of IPOB was built on solid rock, not on Sand.
Today, our people and the foreign intelligence community know the truth that IPOB is a nonviolent movement and also that ESN are volunteer vigilantes protecting our people from both sponsored internal enemies as well as imported ones.
The Fulanized Government of Nigeria realized that it is not easy to destroy IPOB and ESN and so have resorted to concoct all manner of blackmail.
We thank all lovers of freedom across the world who have stood and supported us as we surmount these raging storms. In the end, Biafra will come, and our people shall celebrate and build a robust nation that many responsible nations will court as ally.
We maintain that IPOB has no interest in the selection process called Nigeria election 2023. We are also not responsible for any attacks on their political rallies or destruction of political paraphernalia. These criminals and cultists recruited by the federal government of Nigeria and its compromised security agencies have caused a lot of harm to our people and our land. We promise that they will regret their actions in due time.
As the Zoo Republic 2023 election is fast approaching, anybody or group attacking political campaigns or destroying political materials in Biafraland should not be associated with IPOB. Those persons should be treated as common criminals. We know that some media houses are working with the agent provocateur blackmailers to tag IPOB in the activities of these sponsored criminals, but we are not bordered and will never be distracted.
Ndigbo as a whole must be prepared and know that IPOB will not be involved in the Nigeria electoral process in Biafraland. Our concern and demand is unconditional release of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, and a referendum date for our people to ascertain their fate in the contraption called Nigeria.
IPOB has already released emergence numbers to call to report any criminal using IPOB or ESN's name to commit any crime in Biafraland.
