The leadership of the Indigenous Peoeple of Biafra, IPOB has warned the federal government to desist from its plan to invade any part of the South East and others that make up Biafra, else it will order youths of the area to join the Niger Delter Avenger, NDA to wreck havoc.
In a press release made available to our correspondent in Awka and signed by the duo of Barrister Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, both spokespersons for IPOB, the group commended the NDA for the work it is doing, while describing it as its kith and kin.
In the release, IPOB stated that the NDA was doing a good job by coming to the defence of its brothers as they were both one and the same. It also condemned others who were distancing themselves from the activities of the NDA as cowards.
It added that those distancing themselves from NDA were people who have long been settled with oil wells after they compromised the struggle for freedom.
Part of the release reads, “We plead with the NDA not to be discouraged by the comments and antics of these so-called leaders of these compromized groups and some other charlatans who parade themselves as freedom fighters. The NDA should know that the only ally they have now is IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu.
“IPOB is warning the Nigerian Government of Buhari that should they invade any part of Biafraland, as intelligence indicate they are planning to, then IPOB will order every youth in Biafraland to join NDA to defend Biafraland.
“Muhammadu Buhari and his gangs massacred Biafrans in their millions at Owerri in 1968 but Biafrans will never allow such atrocity to be repeated on Biafraland ever again. We shall fight to the last man standing because Biafra is our life and the restoration of the nation of Biafra is a task that must be achieved.“
The group also added that the NDA since its struggle has harped on the release of Nnamdi Kanu as the only precondition for negotiation with the nigerian government, but attributing it to amnesty will only magnify it.
