The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) “have concluded their plans to attack political campaigners that are against the candidate of their appointees’ political party”.
Newsbreak.ng reports that IPOB through its Media and Publicity Secretary who deploys the pseudonym Emma Powerful, on Monday said it is never interested in Nigeria’s elections.
IPOB has been linked with attacks on police personnel in recent months, thus the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali, recently frowned against affront on the lives of its personnel as the Nigerian general election (2023) approaches.
“We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, is amused by the laughable and disgraceful statement credited to the Nigerian Inspector General of Police, IGP, linking Eastern Security Network, ESN and IPoB to their already planned attacks on political campaigners for Nigerian fraudulent election,” IPOB said.
“The corrupt government of Nigeria and their compromised security should know that IPoB and ESN volunteers don’t engage with Nigeria’s shambolic political campaigns and selection process they call election.
“IG of Police should, therefore, leave IPoB volunteers and ESN operatives alone to focus on things that matter instead of trying to get them involved in Nigeria’s government and its fraudulent political processes.
“Nigerian Police have concluded their plans to attack political campaigners that are against the candidate of their appointees’ political party.
“They have planned to commit many crimes during political campaigns because the candidate of the IGP” appointee party has lost the election from the day he emerged and their IGP appointing authority has told him what to do against their opponents and they have concluded the evil plan to carry out the attack and tag it on IPOB and ESN but they will fail as usual.
“Any time Nigeria security agencies raises false alarm, know that they have planned attacks to blackmail IPoB and ESN operatives, but we cannot allow them to continue their business of blackmail. These compromised security agencies have killed innocent people to blackmail IPoB but Chukwu Okike Abiama has always disgraced them and vindicated us.
“We have always maintained that we are not interested in anything that has to do with Nigeria let alone taking any side in their fraudulent political process, and crooked election, where the winners never emerge victorious, but the losers. IPoB members are not Zoo politicians. The only political process that IPoB will participate in is an UN-supervised Biafra Referendum that will usher in Biafra sovereignty and Independence.
“Anyone intending to link ESN operatives, volunteers, including IPoB members in their planned political attacks is deluded and regret will always be their portion. The Inspector General of Police and his criminal officers should stop their planned attacks because they will always be exposed and disgraced. IPoB hands are clean.
“In their attempt and process of blackmailing IPoB,they will plunge Nigeria into a political crisis that will consume the already half-dead country called Nigeria and their corrupt politicians, who never see anything wrong in what the present administration is doing in Nigeria.
“If the government wants IPoB to be part of their politics, they should fix a date for the Biafra referendum, then they will see the civilized political prowess of IPoB.
“Desperately linking IPoB with their fraudulent election shows that the government has lost focus and confidence in its candidate whose popularity is waning on daily basis.
“IPOB has remained peaceful and non-violent in its quest of seeking Biafra freedom from Nigeria State, and no amount of blackmail can change our resolve to restore Biafra from the shackles of Nigeria’s pitiable, confused, and clueless government.
“Nigeria government should leave IPoB/ESN alone. We are bigger than the political strategies the Nigerian government and the Nigerian Police are applying.”
“They can link or lure other groups into Nigerian politics but not IPoB and ESN because we remain focused on our mission and can’t be attracted to what we abhor. We abhor anything in Nigeria and can’t be attracted to what we have rejected, we don’t eat our vomit like the present leaders of Nigeria do.
“We know that Fulani IG and him Fulani appointee have perfected plans to kill people for politics and link it to IPoB for their usual blackmail.
“We also know they have mobilized some compromised media houses to help them spread their lies against IPoB and ESN. We are already used to their blackmail and are waiting to expose their lies they are not good liars because each one they tell is found to have many exposing and disgraceful characters known to Nigerian Police.
“The whole world knows that IPOoB is not interested in the selection process they call an election in Nigeria because it doesn’t meet our standards to achieve Biafra freedom.
“IPoB will achieve Biafra freedom, not through Nigeria politics or election, but an UN-supervised referendum or an outright declaration of Biafra.”
