JUST IN!!! Hope Rises for Biafra Independence, Referendum To Hold Later in the Year – 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.

“IPOB will use this event to conclusively prove to the whole world that we are ready for the upcoming referendum for Biafra sovereignty. “IPOB and its leadership will also prove to the Nigerian agents in our midst that the historic event of the 30th of May 2017 Remembrance Day celebration and sit-at-home order issued by our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be a watershed in the struggle for the liberation of Biafra and a remarkable one in the history of our nation. After this sit-at-home, which is a mini referendum for us, comes the real referendum later this year.

“IPOB is the largest, most potent freedom fighting outfit anywhere in the world right now and we stand to prove this on the 30th of May 2017.
“In Biafraland and certain parts of Nigeria, Biafrans are required to stay at home and not venture outside.

There will be a complete lockdown of Biafraland and major cities where Biafrans have a significant population concentration, like Sabon Gari in Kano, Lagos, Kaduna, Zaria and Abuja.”
Powerful described as pathetic and downright unpatriotic, the attitude of certain individuals, who, he added, hide under the banner of Biafra to be serving a Northern Nigeria agenda.

“These elements and their groups, not content with duping people in the name of Biafra, have brought shame and infamy to themselves and their groups by attempting to discourage our people from honouring our heroes.
“They have collected money from their sponsors to try and disrespect our heroes that fought and died for us.

These people without shame or honour, have forgotten that MASSOB members died at the hands of the same people they have gone to collect money from to stop a remembrance that includes honouring their own members that died in service to Biafra. This is the height of evil and betrayal of the very worst kind,” he further said.
