The indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB has said that the federal government is working towards causing enmity between the Igbo speaking Biafrans and the ijaws.
A press release by the group signed by the spokesperson of the group, Comrade Emma Powerful, which was made available to our correspondent in Awka stated that by creating perceived splinter groups of IPOB and naming its leader as an ijaw was an attempt to pitch the Igbo’s with the ijaw.
The release stated that, “By carefully inserting a fabricated Ijaw name as the leader of this non-existent group of reprobates (for RE-IPOB), Buhari is looking to generate enmity between the Igbo-speaking part of Biafra and the people of Ijaw.
“In Buhari‘s thinking, he hopes to further make the restoration of Biafra an impossibility by entrenching perpetual enmity among various sections of Biafraland.” He said.
The group berated Ohaneze Ndigbo, describing it as political jobbers who are not ashamed of their lowly political status in Nigeria.
He said, those thinking that IPOB is a pushover group are in for a shock. It added that it will make them understand that no amount of divide and rule tactic will prevail.
Mr Powerful said its leader, Mr Nnamdi Kanu had on August 10, 2015 predicted creation of new fake IPOB groups, and has since prepared for it.
