The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on people – mostly politicians, clergymen and women who strongly believe in rebuilding one Nigeria – to retrace their steps in supporting the idea, saying that the country’s governmental leadership has been hijacked by Fulani people.

A statement made available to journalists in Awka on Monday by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, regretted that Fulanis, whom IPOB described as parasites and strangers in Nigeria, have unfortunately taken over the control of over 200 million indigenous population because of British support to them.

IPOB said that its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, during his weekly radio Biafra broadcast from the holy land of Israel on Saturday evening reaffirmed strongly that there would an election boycott on February 16 in Biafra land.

The statement reads in part: “IPOB will stand on the decision of election boycott in Biafraland on the 16th of February 2019.

“The boycott of presidential election next month will showcase our readiness, determination and seriousness in the pursuit for Biafra freedom and sovereignty.

“It is crystal clear that one of our major lethal weapons to achieve this present Biafra demand is civil disobedience, therefore we urge Biafrans, both home and abroad to advise and caution their families not to vote and totally boycott this coming election no matter the level of promises and inducement politicians of this days might have given them.”

The group said that it will in few days release a blueprint on how the election boycott will be achieved and what Biafrans stand to benefit from it adding that it will also evoke high level of civil disobedience next month to make it effective and enable Biafrans realize how determined the group is.

Continuing, the statement said: “Federal Government of Nigeria, South East governors mostly Okezie Ikpeazu, David Umahi and Willie Obiano including Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Nnia Nwodo conspired and brought in operation python dance to frighten our people to trigger panic, apprehension and fear in the minds of Biafrans who believe in Biafra restoration project.

“IPOB will inevitably bring those governors and few Abuja/Lagos based politicians who believe in serving Hausa Fulani caliphate to account in no distant time.

“It is in the light of this recent distortion, twist and adulterated truth and propaganda against IPOB decision by unscrupulous individuals, groups and politicians in our land that prompted our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to come on air last week Saturday to state unequivocally without mincing words the position of IPOB in Abia and Ebonyi states gubernatorial elections come next month.

“Okezie Ikpeazu and David Umahi who unbeknown to most people has donated a portion of our sacred land of Biafra to Miyetti Allah cannot support Operation Python Dance and expect the people not to revolt accordingly.

“IPOB is at the fore front of this coming revolution next month.”

The group said that the potency of the agitation for Biafra will be made clear for all to see noting that the group remains unwavering and determined as ever to bring this divine and ordained mission to its successful conclusion.

“Our freedom is paramount therefore ongoing politically motivated abductions, high levels of humiliation, intimidation, abduction, arrest, massacre and sponsored propaganda against a peaceful group like IPOB will not shake our resolve, instead it will make us stronger,” the statement added.
