IPOB to international community: Investigate insecurity in South-East

By Chimaoni Nwaiwu

PRO-BIAFRA group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, has called for an in depth independent international investigation of continued insecurity in South East.

IPoB also urged the international community to prevail on Nigeria and British government to investigate the insecurity in South East.

The pro- Biafra group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful entitled “IPoB call for international independent investigation of the insecurity in the Eastern region of Nigeria, further alleged that the Federal and a state government are complicit in the insecurity in the South-East.

IPoB’s statement reads, “The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, calls for International Intelligence community, the British government, and the Nigeria government to investigate the continuous insecurity in the Biafra Land. IPoB maintains that insecurity in Biafra Land is state sponsored.

“According to the United Nations Development Program, UNDP, report of 2016, the South East region was named the most humanly secure geopolitical zone in Nigeria. South East or Biafra land has been the epicenter for IPoB peaceful rallies in Nigeria since 2010.

“IPoB has never recorded any form of violence in all the crowded peaceful rallies we have held all over the world. However, when the last administration before President Ahmed Tinubu came in 2016, they applied several brutal forces to stop IPoB’s peaceful rallies for Biafra’s self-determination.

“In the process of this, a lot of IPoB members were murdered in cold blood during peaceful rallies. Some IPoB members were permanently deformed by bullets, injuries, acid, and chemicals and tortures by security operatives.

“Irrespective of all these provocations, IPoB remains undoubtedly strong and peaceful. Globally, in over 100 countries where IPoB is permitted to operate, including in Nigeria, no IPoB member has ever been convicted for any crime while performing IPoB functions.
