A faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dissociated itself from a suggesting that the separatist group would not support the upcoming election in Anambra State.

Ndubuisi Anaenugwu, its Director of Information, in a statement issued on Tuesday, said: “It has increasingly become necessary to reiterate that IPOB stands for Indigenous People of Biafra, and there are about 70,000,000 of these indigenous Biafrans living everywhere across the globe. All of these people are referred to as indigenous persons of Biafra.

The statement advised the public “to note that the IPOB being referred to by Emma Powerful are people who pay allegiance to a company called IPOB Limited, registered in the UK.

“The Customary Government of IPOB being administered by Engr. Anthony Aniebue under the leadership of Rtd. Justice Eze Ozubu and Dr. (Dozie) Ikedife has been in the Federal High Court, Owerri with the Nigerian Government since 2012 and the case is still progressing with positive results.

“From the beginning, the Solicitor for IPOB, Barr Emeka Emekesiri, has made his approach to restore Biafra known to all parties including the Nigerian Government. These approaches are legal, diplomatic and political. The legal is still ongoing, and the Indigenous People of Biafra through Bilie Human Rights Initiative just sent a delegation to the United Nations. The IPOB has also created a political platform known as MOBIN (Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria). This movement will be used by Biafran politicians to participate in Nigerian politics while still living in Nigeria.

“MOBIN has gone into alliance to act as a mobilisation agent for a registered political party in Nigeria known as United Progressive Party (UPP).

“The Customary Government of IPOB will continue to preach peace, love and unity among all Biafrans living in Nigeria and elsewhere. Let nobody be confused as our rule of engagement is intellectual battle built on truth and nothing but the truth.”
