The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended Biafrans and lovers of freedom all over Biafraland and various parts of Southern Nigeria who contributed in one way or the other towards the successful outcome of sit at home order in honour of its fallen heroes “who sacrificed their precious lives for Biafrans to be alive today”.
The group noted that pictorial and video evidence abound to lend incontrovertible credence to the fact that Biafraland obeyed IPOB sit-at-home order on May 30, 2019.
IPOB also hailed IPOB family members in the Diaspora that rallied in over 100 countries across Europe, Asia, America, Australia, South America and Africa as well as those in Lagos, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, Ibadan and Abuja who decided, without fear or favour, to stay indoors.
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, reads in part: “We salute the uncommon courage, determination and resoluteness of all Biafrans that defied the military and Police threats including intimidation and harassment from Hausa-Fulani cabal in Aso Rock and South East governors to sit-at-home across the length and breadth of Biafraland.
“We commend the people of Ogoni, Ijaw, Uhrobo, Annang, Igbo, Idoma, Igede, Igala, Igbanke/Igboakiri and others who afforded to observe and remember those that sacrificed their youthful lives for us to be alive today.
“From Ogoja in the east to the border town of Igbanke in the west; from the Oturkpo in the north to the island of Bonny in the south, Biafrans observed in their own unique way a day of solemnity, reverence and respect for our departed heroes and heroines.
“Those Hausa Fulani slaves in government houses in the South East including those unscrupulous individuals and groups should cover their faces in shame.
“They threatened fire and brimstone yet the people ignored them and obeyed IPOB order. We expect them to sponsor fake publications seeking to downplay the effectiveness of our sit-at-home directive but that is of no consequence to us. No matter what they do, the material evidence detailing full compliance on social media and other platforms will forever indict them.”
IPOB maintained that Biafra resonated all over the world like never before on the said day.
It further thanked the people of Ebonyi, Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers, Bayelsa, Imo and Enugu States for standing firm to honour its heroes.
Continuing, the statement says: “IPOB is making effort to liberate Biafran people from this iniquitous bondage British brought us into, those saboteurs must remain silent because IPOB has proven to all and sundry that they are in charge of this land called Biafra.
“All Biafran States and its provinces are firmly today declared in the open that this land belong to Biafrans and shall remain so as long as this planet earth continued to exists.
“If one thing became clearer as a result of this 2019 sit-at-home, it is the fact that people listen to IPOB high command not those Abuja contractors and politicians especially those faceless organisations and groups who were sponsored by Aso Rock cabal and northern caliphate to politicise this sit at home order issued by IPOB with the antics of beautifying the event with their kangaroo procession and lectures today.
“Biafrans move on, Biafra referendum is coming in no distant time.”
