IPOB Takes Fresh Actions To End Sit-at-home In South-East

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned the Southeast not to join the festering protests by Nigerians against the current economic hardship in the country.

The group insisted that such protests must not take place in the Southeast because Igbos have lost interest in Nigeria and are simply waiting for an opportunity to leave.

IPOB made this known on Tuesday via a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful.

Powerful warned that anyone who organise any protest against economic hardship in the South-East would put Ndigbo in danger.

Powerful said, “The current hardship in Nigeria should be the concern of Nigerians, not Biafrans. Biafrans are no longer interested in the affairs of Nigeria. Biafrans were abused, intimidated, beaten, killed and denied voting rights during the election of this present government. Ndigbo were told to wait, that it was not their turn to rule.

“Anyone who organises any protest against economic hardship in Biafraland will put Biafrans in danger. During the #EndSARS protest, the Federal Government accused Ndigbo of attempting to destroy Nigeria with violence. We don’t want such profiling and targeting to repeat because of Ndigbo’s participation in any Nigerian mass protest.

“Ndigbo should leave the current economic hardship in the contraption called Nigeria for Nigerians to deal with because this hardship is what God Almighty has in store for Nigeria for the crimes they have committed against Biafrans between 1967 to 1970 and up to date.

“We understand that Ndigbo are equally affected by the economic hardship arising from the reckless and thoughtless economic policies of the government, but God is still seeing Biafrans through. We are worried about the suffering of other tribes, but there is nothing we can do. The current situation is why Biafrans are fighting for freedom. Nevertheless, we must apply wisdom.”
