IPOB Releases Guidelines For May 30 'Biafra Day' As Nnamdi Kanu Gives Order

A Coalition of 52 Northern Groups (CNG) has called on the international community to help pressurize the Nigerian government and United Nations to facilitate the final actualization of Biafra.

In a communique after an emergency meeting, CNG spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman described as empty and of no effect “threats and promises” by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Between December 2020 and April 2021, over 970 students were abducted from their schools in the northern part of Nigeria with a substantial number still in captivity and some violently executed,” he said.

The group lamented that Northern Nigeria is currently experiencing a very high level of criminal activities

He said, “The CNG hereby resolves to call on our friends and the international community, the UK especially, to understand that our bilateral friendship is guided by the principles of sovereignty, promotion of peace and the standards that guide legitimate interference.

“Hence, their intervention, exclamations and actions should not be drawn to discountenance the effort of the Nigerian state to protect citizens from violence and terror.

“We finally wish to renew our request for the global community’s intervention in persuading Nigerian authorities and the United Nations to facilitate the final actualisation of the Biafran dream by the Igbo.

“The world should keep in mind that by far, a destabilised Nigeria will certainly threaten the peace and security of the entire sub-Saharan Africa.

“In the South, gangs of armed IPOB militia, violent secessionists and an assortment of militant groups appear to sense a huge vacuum in the capacity and political will by the Federal Government to challenge them, which they exploit with disastrous consequences on the nation’s security assets and specifically on northern communities and individuals living as minorities in the South while the presidency wallows in deflecting the issue.”
