The indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB Sunday called on Biafans all over the world, friends of Biafra, lovers of freedom and all freedom fighters across the world to come out on Monday to witness the peaceful remembrance march of the Biafra fallen heroes and heroines who died during the Biafra/ Nigeria civil war of 1967 to 1970 and those who died during our peaceful protest and evangelism in Anambra, Aba Abia, Rivers and Delta states.
“IPOB in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Officer Mr. Emma Powerful, said the peaceful remembrance march will equally be used to honour, remind and reassure leader and Director of Radio Biafra Mr Nnandi Kanu, who is currently being incarcerated by the Federal Government of Nigeria that he has not been forgotten by members.
“IPOB family meetings worldwide invites all electronic and print media companies and international medias to the Remembrance day of Biafra fallen heroes on 30th of May 2016.
We are also calling on all the clans in Biafra, be you Izon (ljaw), Isoko, Ishekiri, Efik, Ibibio, Idoma, Isobo, Igede, Igala, Igboakiri (Igbanke), Igbos and others to come out and be part of the peaceful even. People will gather at IPOB organized centres all over the world to show their respect, but all those in Biafra land should attend the gathering in Anambra state” he said.
Mr Powerful however, warned infiltrator who may want to use the peaceful march to bring about break of law and order that IPOB will deal decisively with them.
“We are therefore, calling on the Governor of Anambra State and Chief Security Officer of the state, Chief Willie Obiano, Commissioner of Police, Army Commander and Navy Commander to call their men and security agents to order, because we are a non-violent organization that is bent on the restoration of Biafra and nobody born of a woman can stop us, because this is the project of Chukwuokike Abiama (God Almighty)” he said.
