It’s insulting, wicked comparing IPOB to bandits – Spokesman

•Says no plan to disrupt Anambra Governorship election Uchenna Mercy, Abakaliki

The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says comparing it to bandits and Boko Haram, was not only wicked, but insulting.

This is as the group said those using media propaganda against it lacked real clue of what it stands, stressing that it was a peaceful movement.

IPOB’s Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, stated this in a statement, on Monday.

The seccesionist group further noted that it had no intention to attack part of the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones of the country, saying the rumour making the rounds that it vowed to stop Anambra Governorship election, was a mere ruse.

The statement read, “The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have read with amusement, a fallacious media remark by one inconsequential Shekau, a self acclaimed supporter of President Muhamnadu Buhari where he displayed his ignorance and cluelessness about IPOB, our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and the goings-on in Biafra land.

“As much as we would not want to dignify this amorphous fellow with a response, the pertinent question is: who is this Shekau without a surname that a national newspaper like Daily Trust should publish?

“It is a pity that this ignoble fellow and attention seeker compared a non-violent movement like IPOB to Boko Haram terrorists created and groomed by the North to kill Jewish and Christian adherant, Indigenous Northerners and security agents.

“IPOB has seen numerous false propaganda in the past and we are not in any way moved by this latest vomit. We know the antics of our enemies who are never tired of sponsoring media lies to cover up their evil and rubbish our struggle for independence but we are not deterred.

“Contrary to the vomit by this inconsequential fellow, IPOB has no plans to attack South Easterners and South Southerners. In the first place, violence is not part of our philosophy. Assuming we want to resort to violence, how can we attack our people whom we are fighting for? It does not make any sense. But we know their motive for peddling this falsehood as our intelligent report confirm the importation and stock pilling of arms from Pakistan for their planned invasion of Biafraland but we are waiting for them.

“We are so astonished that a terrorist like Shekau without surname will be the one telling Biafran people to hate their own while he and his kinsmen openly protect their own terrorists and bandits maming and killing them in the the entire Northern region.

“It is also important to note that contrary to speculations, IPOB has not officially declared ‘no election in Anambra State’. Our preoccupation is Biafra restoration. Anybody equating IPOB strategy with Boko Haram terrorists, bandits and Fulani herdsmen is ignorant and mischievous.

“Many acclaimed Northerners don’t know what we are doing to restore Biafra.”
