Respect Yourself, Biafra Is God-ordained – IPOB Fires Back At Gov. Mohammed



Respect Yourself, Biafra Is God-ordained - IPOB Fires Back At Gov. Mohammed

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed is ignorant about the purpose and activities of the group and its agitation for the actualization of Biafra.

To this end, the proscribed group warned the Governor to stop speaking about them, adding that an independent Biafra will be achieved in his lifetime and it will shock him.

Naija News reports IPOB made the submission in a statement on Sunday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful in response to the call from Governor Mohammed for the members of the group to abandon their agitation and key into promoting the unity of Nigeria.

It will be recalled that Mohammed while speaking on Friday in Anambra State, said most of those clamouring for Biafra don’t understand what they already have in Nigeria.

The Bauchi State Governor while calling on IPOB to abandon the quest to achieve an independent Biafra Nation, said Igbos own more than half of the investments in places such as Abuja, Kano, Lagos and many other cities in Nigeria.

But Powerful in his response stated that what they are after is more than land ownership or property but true freedom for their people who have suffered marginalization in Nigeria.

According to the IPOB spokesman, “The attention of the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our indomitable Leader and liberator of our time, Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been drawn to the laughable, disgraceful and unguarded statements credited to ignoble Governor of Bauchi State, Gov. Bala Muhammed, saying that IPOB cannot achieve Biafra. This self-deluded Fulani irredentist advertised his ignorance by mentioning IPOB in his political ranting thinking that IPOB is in his class.

“IPOB has no time to join issues with a Fulani Governor by default who sees nothing wrong in the atrocities by Fulani bandits but is always in a hurry to fault mere peaceful agitation by nonviolent IPOB and other pro-Biafra groups.

“Bala Mohammed the defender of terrorists should stop commenting on IPOB matters because he has limited and biased knowledge about us.

“Contrary to this thinking, IPOB is not begging for land. Land does not signify freedom, we are fighting for our self determination which will show the world that we are special people. Our land is enough for us to operate as a nation. We don’t need borrowed lands. There are so many countries in the world occupying lesser landmass than we do.

“Gov Bala Muhammed of Bauchi should respect himself and must know that IPOB will achieve Biafra freedom in his time and he will be shocked. IPOB is a God-ordained movement designed to champion the cause of Biafra and liberate its citizens from the Nigeria bondage.”
