The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on its members to desist from any form of name calling and verbal attacks in the media against the pan Igbo cultural organisation, Ohanaeze.

IPOB made the call after rising from its meeting with some respectable Igbo elders, representatives of IPOB, and leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Enugu.

The meeting, which was chaired by Prof. Ben Nwabueze discussed among other the issues, the need for synergy and constitution for a common front to forestall any form of threat to the existence of the people of Enugu State who are presently under siege.

In a statement made available to journalists and signed by IPOB’s Deputy Leader, Mazi Uche Mefor, the group said their stance on Ohanaeze group was strictly to give room for a number of representations and demands made by IPOB to those present at the meeting to be given due attention within the shortest possible time-frame, under an atmosphere devoid of rancour.

The statement reads in part: “Should this gesture by IPOB, in the face of well-documented betrayal and blackmail by the political class be taken for granted, IPOB shall have no option but to stand in the gap to defend the aspirations and collective will of the people of Biafra against every enemy.

“IPOB, as the most potent and largest freedom fighting outfit on earth, remains focused, determined and resolute.

“Our unalloyed commitment to a referendum in pursuit of our emancipation remain sacrosanct and insurmountable.

“The leadership of IPOB hereby mandate that all forms of verbal attacks and name calling on all media platforms against Ohanaeze Ndigbo should cease with immediate effect.

“No IPOB family member should disparage Ohanaeze Ndigbo or its leadership until further notice.”
