IPOB condemns killing of Christians in North, attacks by Fulani herdsmen, amalgamation of 1914
Biafra agitators

Pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has cried out to the whole world that they are not a terrorist organisation as the Department of Security Service, DSS, is trying to portray them in the eyes of the public.
Reacting to a media statement credited to DSS, IPOB spokesmen, Barr. Emma Mmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya respectively pointed out that tagging IPOB a criminal and terrorist organisation is the handiwork of President Buhari and the DSS to give the impression that IPOB is destructive like other freedom fighters.
Accusing President Buhari pointedly as the mastermind of the smear campaign against IPOB, the released posited that Buhari has failed in his attempt to criminalise the organisation.
“Retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari and his Department of State Services, DSS, have once again failed woefully in their spurious attempt at criminalising Biafrans and branding the IPOB a terrorist organisation.
“In an incoherent and error-filled statement sent to the media, the DSS stated, “sequel to increasing threat posed to public peace by the activities of IPOB, this service arrested one Chidiebere Onwudiwe, a graduate of mechanical and chemical Engineering and known member of IPOB, on 22nd June, 2016.”
“The stark illiterate-filled DSS in their statement further noted, ‘Onwudiwe and his associates within and outside the country, were planning to carry out coordinated attacks against religious bodies/edifices, police check points and the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos State, with Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDS,’ and that “The suspect was apprehended while making logistics supplies for their nefarious plan.
“First of all, let us just point out only two out of the several errors in this pack of lies from the DSS’ statement.
“(1) We are Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and NOT “Independent People of Biafra”. Even in the records of all the court cases concerning the illegal kidnapping and unconstitutional prosecution of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to which the DSS have been part of, there was no place where the word “independent” was used.
“(2) At which University in Nigeria can someone graduate in both Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering at the same time? Even in the more advanced countries it is very difficult to achieve such a feat not to talk of the Buhari’s run-down universities in Nigeria.
“It is laughable that the DSS is accusing IPOB of posing increasing threat to public peace while they have not made a single official statement concerning the mayhem and havoc being exhibited everyday by Boko Haram and the so-called Fulani herdsmen.
“Up till today, the DSS has maintained stoic silence on the killings at Agatu and Nimbo.
“Perhaps those killings do not pose threats to public peace because the people killed were “infidels” that deserve to die as they are not of the Hausa-Fulani Islamic blood.
“It is very interesting to know from the DSS that IPOB can now manufacture IEDS and Chidiebere was probably manufacturing them in his sleep when DSS hooligans broke into his house and kidnapped him at about 2.00 a.m. on June 22, 2016.
“We want to tell the DSS that we know their objectives and every discerning mind knows them too.
“The DSS is trying as much as possible to tag IPOB a violent group. The questions we want to ask the DSS are: Do we cover our faces when we march on the streets around the world? We are registered at the UN, if we are a violent group won’t the UN know? “Kidnapping people in the middle of the night, denying them access to food and water, legal and medical help in the hope of getting IPOB members to testify against the leader of IPOB will not work.
“The fact that this bumbling and idiotic DSS even contemplated insinuating that Computer Village, mostly owned by Biafrans of Igbo extraction, is a target for such an attack exposes the idiocy of those that run Buhari’s Secret Police.
