Biafra agitators coordinated by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday replied to comment credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigeria would not tolerate Biafra.
IPOB in its reaction maintained that Biafra would also not tolerate Nigeria, arguing that “Biafra is a long and arduous process”.
Buhari in a recent interview lamented the renewed agitation, which led to the killing of over two million people decades ago.
Spokespersons of IPOB, Emma Mmezu and Dr Clifford Iroanya, in a statement titled “Response to Ohanaeze and Buhari’s disparaging remarks about Biafra on Al Jazeera,” reiterated that “for record purposes, our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has not mandated Ohanaeze or any youth group to negotiate for his release.
“The agitation for Biafra is a long and arduous process and the entire IPOB family all over the world understands this approach as espoused by our detained leader.
“We have not come to merely agitate, we have come to restore or die in the process. Some people think we are joking or can be easily dissuaded from this divine path that God-Chukwu Okike Abhiama has mandated us to follow.
“Any negotiation on Biafra must be led by Nnamdi Kanu and nobody else. If roads, bridges and a few junior staff at Aso Rock are our problems as Biafrans, then IPOB worldwide can fund such infrastructural development alone and very soon, we shall do it. Our quest is Biafra- nothing more, nothing less.
“On the issue of Buhari’s Aljazeera interview on Biafra, we welcome his comments because Biafra would not also tolerate Nigeria. Lord Lugard created Nigeria not Chukwu Okike Abhiama, God Almighty. So, like USSR, it will collapse”, the IPOB said.
