The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Saturday said the People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flag-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, lacks the capacity to stop the Biafra agitation.
Newsbreak.ng reports that IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary who deploys the pseudonym Emma Powerful, described Atiku’s statement that he would put an end to the secessionist movement if he elected president in 2023 as laughable.
IPOB’s statement read: “The attention of global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was drawn to the statement credited to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar at Enugu State where he was ranting how he would stop Biafra agitation if he becomes the President.
“Those deluded South East politicians around Atiku Abubakar should warn him to stop using Biafra agitation championed by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU and IPOB for his political campaigns. He and his politicians in the East should stop talking like morons and bragging about what is beyond their reach.
“Atiku Abubakar and his political gang must know that we allowed them to Enugu State does not mean we don’t know what to do to stop them from entering Enugu State ever again. As much as we are a civilised movement, we don’t want to be used for corrupt election campaigns or we will be forced them to stop their campaigns in our territories.
“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar you can do anything to please your gullible followers but you cannot stop Biafra agitation championed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide. The only remedy to this current agitation is fixing a date for Biafra referendum to ascertain where people of Biafra wish to stay.”
