Biafra: 30th May Heroes’ Day not Just ‘Sit-at-Home’, to Involve Protests, Rallies etc -IPOB



AS the 30th May, 2017 Biafra Day remembrance draws near, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has urged its members, including those in the Diaspora, to use the day to show the world that they still cherished the efforts of their heroes who paid the supreme sacrifice for Biafrans to live.

IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, said in a statement yesterday that all IPOB units within and outside Biafra had been directed to participate in street demonstrations, rallies, lectures and prayers, saying the day would go down in history as one of the greatest events ever organized by man.

According to him, the leadership of IPOB had also noted with satisfaction the preparations being made in some countries for the event, including the United Kingdom, Angola, Mozambique, Congo DR, Namibia and Tanzania.

He said: “IPOB, under the leadership and supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wants every IPOB family member to prove to the entire world that we remain the pre-eminent freedom fighting outfit anywhere on earth at this moment.

“We have been directed by our leader to demonstrate our formidability and resoluteness in our respective countries of residence across the globe in such a manner that our heroes, wherever they lie, even in unmarked graves in forgotten battlefields, will be proud of what they achieved 50 years ago.
“Biafrans, both home and abroad, must honour and remember our heroes and heroines that died to stop the total Islamization of the sacred land of Biafra and perpetual enslavement of the children of God.

“The exceptionally gallant soldiers of the class of 67-70 and the fearless IPOB family (including MASSOB members killed over the years) during numerous protests and rallies to free Biafra, paid the ultimate price by sacrificing their lives that we may live.
It is therefore the patriotic duty of every right-thinking Biafran to respect the sacrifice these brave men and women made for our survival as a race.
