The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has dared the Nigerian government and its security agencies over its October 1 sit-at-home order earlier announced.
The Biafra agitators in a statement on Wednesday, September 30 by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, warned the federal government and security agencies to steer clear.
According to Powerful, nobody could reverse the call on Igbo people to sit-at-home on October 1 as earlier declared by the group.
He said, “Nigeria Police and those claiming to be fighting for Biafra freedom but stand against the coming of Biafra are inconsequential because they cannot afford to stop us.”
IPOB reiterated its commitment towards ensuring the speedy and successful actualization of Biafra, adding that Nigeria cannot scuttle their resolve.
The group urged other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria eager for change to demand freedom.
“Our people must be strong to encourage all other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria who wish to change their lives by demanding freedom. Freedom for all oppressed people is what IPOB is all about”, Powerful added.
Meanwhile, Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Youth Council, (OYC), has warned its people from giving support to the Western region of Nigeria towards achieving Oduduwa Nations.
The Igbo group said it recalls how late Chief Obafemi Awolowo betrayed the Igbos years back to the interest of the western region, Naija News reports.
