The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that it will not condone insults on its leader’s lawyer or its hierarchy represented by the Directorate of State (DOS).
The group said that neither of the duo has taken any action inimical to the struggle to warrant “the embarrassing and undeserved insults from some uninformed folks.”
It maintained that all the decisions so far taken were in the best interest of the struggle and in accordance with direct directive from detained IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, who it noted is very impressed with the actions and solidarity so far implemented by the leadership since his detention
A statement made available to News Express on Wednesday by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful said: “We can no longer tolerate the barrage of insults being rained on the lead counsel of the Indigenous People of Biafra Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor by some uninformed fellows and mischief makers.
“IPOB is also disappointed that despite our earlier explanations on the rationale behind our decision to suspend the Ghost Monday Sit-At-Home order, some fellows are still disparaging our Directorate of State DoS over the decision.
“We therefore, wish to advise all those playing the devil’s advocate to desist in their own interest and stop giving our enemies room to mock us. IPOB is a well structured and organised movement with clear cut hierarchical structure as well.
“Henceforth, IPOB will no longer take lightly any act of insubordination from anybody or from any quarter irrespective of one’s status.”
The group said that Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor remains IPOB”s lead council and its leader’s lead legal representative, saying that Kanu reposes strong confidence in his ability and capacity.
While pointing out that Ejiofor has not once betrayed or misrepresented his clients IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB noted that it is enough reason for anyone especially IPOB family members not to reciprocate his sacrifices (Ejiofor’s) with insults.
The statement added: “The facts in the public domain evidence multiple attempts by the Nigeria security agencies to eliminate Barrister Ejiofor at all cost because they have failed to get him compromised. Instead of appreciating him for defending our leader who is at the risk of his own life, some mischief makers are trying to accuse him of sabotage. This is not only ridiculous but stupidity taken too far.
“We also wish to clarify that in IPOB we have nothing or nobody known as autopilot. Anybody going by such title is not IPOB, and is flouting our rules. Anybody claiming to be such should immediately disengage before he is embarrassed.”
