1 Views

The peaceful
Pro-Biafra organization, The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on
its members who majorly control the transportation businesses in the Southeast,
to shut down everywhere on Thursday, October 1st over fears of
potential attack from terrorists and also to protest the refusal of the Nigeria
government to allow the Biafra region peaceful secession.

The IPOB
also called on all Nigerians in the South-West to participate in the
sit-at-home protest and to avoid crowded areas, citing an intelligence report
of an impending attack.

The group in
a statement by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful said, “To those
who think we can drop our agitation for Biafra because of their promise of
Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023 must be smoking mind-bending drugs
because their hallucinations will not get them anywhere.

It cited the example of Nigeria’s 50th-anniversary commemoration on October 1st, 2010 in Abuja where two car bombs went off.

Below is the
statement:

“Take your
useless ‘Igbo Presidency’ and give us Biafra. Biafra is non-negotiable and very
soon we shall restore our dream republic.

“This order
which is a peaceful protest of our discontent with the injustices, misrule,
oppression, genocidal killings and other atrocities perpetrated by the
Government of Nigeria against Biafrans and other indigenous peoples in this
British-created contraption must be observed throughout Biafraland.

 “Any governor, political office holder in
Biafraland or anywhere in Nigeria who thinks he can endear himself to their
caliphate masters by issuing any counter directive must understand that what
awaits every traitor in the history of the liberation struggle is inevitably
waiting for them.

“Those using
the cover of political office to surrender Ebonyi State to the murderous
Miyetti Allah terrorists and their counterparts using the name of
inconsequential and roundly compromised socio-cultural groups to issue
statements designed to attract Fulani patronage must be made to understand that
treachery never pays.

“All markets
and business premises in Biafraland must remain closed from 6:00am to 6:00pm on
October 1. The same way, Biafran traders outside Biafraland should stay away
from their shops and business environment on that day.

“All roads
in Biafraland must be deserted. Every motor-park should be under lock and key,
it must remain closed. Motorists, tricycle and motorcycle operators should keep
off all roads in Biafraland.

“More
importantly, parents and guardians should not make the mistake of allowing
their children to step outside or gather in large numbers as terrorists are
planning a deadly attack on that very day.”
