APGA responsible for death of 2000 Biafran Agitators–IPOB
APGA responsible for death of 2000 Biafran Agitators–IPOB
By Larry Onwutra
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leadership worldwide have described those gazing at self determination and referendum like a call for war as uncivilized and uneducated people.
The media spokesman of the IPOB Emma Powerful yesterday said in a press statement that the antics of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) should be seen as a jealously laden, derisory attempt to deflect attention away from the fact.
Comrade Emma Powerful alleged that APGA as the governing party in Anambra State was responsible for the death of innocent Biafrans numbering over 2000 since the formation.
He said the two notable instances being the infamous Ezu River bodies and the heinous massacres at Nkpor and BridgeHead Onitsha respectively, stating that Willie Obiano, from APGA superintended the wholesale slaughter of innocent unarmed Biafrans on different occasions.
In his words, “The party employed wholesale slaughter of their people as a way of stopping the agitation for restoration of Biafra not knowing that we are prepared to keep dying until Biafra is restored as we swore”.
“In the purported letter written by the party in Anambra State threatening a showdown with IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which gave order of no election in all Biafraland starting from Anambra Gubernatorial election come November 2017, APGA failed to mention the fact that Biafrans and IPOB in particular campaigned and voted for both Peter Obi, Rochas Okorocha and Willie Obiano but were rewarded with shoot at sight orders issued by both men”.
IPOB expressed dissatisfaction and regretted that APGA as a political party preoccupied with feathering the nests of a select few, underestimate the desire of every genuine Biafran to be liberated from the slavery and bondage that Nigeria has come to represent.
“APGA is motivated by personal greed and self aggrandizement unlike IPOB that is purely focused on the liberation of our people and by extension, other oppressed people in Nigeria”.
“The spurious and childish accusation that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is also the Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra Television to stop parading himself as emperor smacks more of envy borne out of desperation than a reasoned assertion”.
“There is no one more humble than the IPOB leader, that is why he is loved by millions of people, so the little anti Biafra rant by APGA will only encourage us the more to ensure that the lockdown of Anambra State come 18 November 2017 is total and compete”.
“We would prove to APGA that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never in his life, since the inception of IPOB, indulged himself or arrogated any powers to himself”.
“He has advisers, but more critically he is under the guidance of the supreme Almighty Creator Chukwu Okike Abiama that sent him. Mazi Kanu is an easy going, caring and deeply passionate person when it comes to Biafra”.
The IPOB media person noted that perverse insinuation that he made himself a god is a clever ploy designed to appeal to the envious nature of certain individuals who wish to be like him but can never.
He however described such statement as insulting, according to him, a party that supervised the killings of thousands of IPOB family members, which they connived with the APC Government of Buhari to cover up, has no capacity to advise the same people they killed to turn against IPOB.
“History will remember the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) as the party that murdered those that voted her into power”.
“The founding father APGA General Dim Chukwuemeka Oduegwu Ojukwu will be turning in his grave because of the way Willie Obiano and co used the party as a vehicle to murder thousands of people seeking out collective freedom”.
Emma Powerful alleged that the incompetent hands and political contractors in the society have ruined the party, they have turned the party into a killer political machine that appear harmless during campaigns, only to unleash terror on innocent citizens once they are enthroned in office.
“We are not deterred by the noise coming from APGA because after November 2017 they will cease to exist as a political force because they killed innocent Biafrans fighting for the liberation of all of us”.
“We stand strongly to tell the whole world the position of IPOB under the command leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that we IPOB will not be participating in any party politics or electioneering in Anambra State or elsewhere for that matter. All we are asking for is a date for referendum not war so the people of Biafra can decide their fate in this abominable entity called Nigeria”.
“The political vampires who are APGA members and other politicians in Biafra land claiming to be lovers of Biafra and her freedom should know that if Nigeria Government fail to give Biafrans a date for referendum to ascertain the will of the people in no distant time, there will be no more elections in Biafra land”.
“Every sensible human being, civilized and lettered person or group in the whole world knows that quest for self determination is not a call for war and also a call for referendum is not in any way tangled with any hate speech”.
“We hope men and women of good conscience and integrity can assimilate the meaning of the words referendum and self determination, then prevail on Nigeria Government to fix a date for referendum for the people of Biafra”.
IPOB more so maintain that they have never been a time the organization asked for war or confrontation of any sort, that they need referendum to settle this burning issue concerning Biafra, no more no less. According to the statement, only those who regard self determination and referendum as a call for war are the uncivilized and uneducated ones.
