The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) warned weekend that no Nigerian flag would be hoisted in
Biafra land from 1st October 2021.
Emma Powerful, the IPOB spokesman, sounded the note of warning saying that the directive not to allow Nigerian flag was in solidarity with Ambazonia’s coming Independence Day Celebration billed for same day as great ally and neighbour to Biafrans.
He said further, “We advise Biafrans to stand with Ambazonia people as they celebrate their God-given freedom and independence. We should bear in mind that our brothers and sisters in Ambazonia are passing through persecutions in the hands of murderous Cameroonian Government just like Biafrans are facing similar ordeals in the hands of Fulani controlled federal government of Nigeria that
sympathatises with terrorist’s but kills peaceful agitators .”
“We therefore urge world leaders to use the opportunity of the on-going United Nations General Assembly, UNGA meeting to discuss the sufferings of the two persecuted nations of Biafra and Ambazonia. Our people have suffered enough in the hands of our oppressors who are in bed with terrorists but derive pleasure in crushing peaceful agitators instead of addressing our genuine concerns.”
“The two old men leading Cameroon and Nigeria – Paul Biya, and Muhammadu Buhari, should be made to answer for the on-going secret genocide by security operatives and Fulani jihadists against the peace-loving indigenous people of Biafra, and Ambazonia. Why have they chosen to decimate us but spare, encourage and even grant amnesty to murderous Fulani bandits on rampage throughout the whole North and Nigeria.”
“IPOB has declared 1st of October 2021 total shutdown in Biafra land as a sign of our rejection of the evil construct called Nigeria and there shall be no movement in Biafra land on this day.
“Also IPOB has declared from today 25th September 2021 that all Nigerian flag mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down, banks exceptional, IPOB leadership will communicate to Banks directly and give them reason they must peacefully bring down Nigerian flag in their banking premises before we do it ourselves in our own way.”
