IPOB Press Release

Published on the Biafra Post

February 9, 2023

We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU wish to bring to the attention of the international community and particularly the US  Government, the indiscriminate bombings  being carried out by the Nigeria Armed Forces in Biafran communities using the *Super Tucano* military jets acquired from the United States of America.

Innocent civilian communites in Ebonyi, Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Rivers States,  Igweocha and other places in Biafraland, have been bombed repeatedly causing a lot of civilian casualties and destruction of our people's property and means of livelihood.

It is on record that the USA Department of State restricted the use of the Super Tucano Jets to Northern Nigeria to fight Boko Haram, who are destroying people's lives in that part of the country. 

The  Nigeria Government is however, knowingly and deliberately violating  the  terms of the Military jets sale agreement by using them to  bomb villages and rural communities in the Southeast. The US Government  asked Nigeria to restrict the use of the Super Tucano Jets to the Northern part of Nigeria where terrorist groups are very active. In flagrant disregard to the terms of the sale agreement, Nigeria, which is known for breaching agreements and acting outside the bounds of legal norms, have now exposed their true intention of purchasing the Military jets by turning the use of the bombers on Biafran communities and villages in the Eastern Region. This one-sided war being waged by the Nigerian Government against the Biafran people with the help of Military hardware delivered to them by the US  Government  goes to show the conspiracy of the entire Western governments against the people of Biafra. What is our crime one may ask? The crime of the Biafran people is that we dare to demand for our Freedom and Self-Determination as a people, we dared to demand for a Referendum as well as  demanding for the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU from unlawful imprisonment in accordance with the order and ruling of the Nigeria Court of Appeal. 

It is obvious that the hidden agenda  behind the sale and purchase of the Super Tucano Jets from the US Government is to use them to bomb Biafran territory and annihilate the people of Biafra from their ancestral land, and obviously not to fight terrorists in Northern Nigeria. These same Super Tucano Millitary Jets have not been used anywhere in Northern Nigeria against insurgents because the Fulani led Government of Nigeria has no interest in fighting their terrorist brothers. To them, "any attack on Boko Haram and ISWAP is an attack on the North."

We demand that the US  Government recall the Super Tucano Jets sold to Nigeria for violating the terms of the sales agreement. If the US Government fails to question the use of the Super Tucano Jets on Biafra soil, we shall be left with no option but to believe that the US Government is fully aware,  and supports the use of their military equipment to bomb and kill Biafran civilian population. 

The continued use of these fighter jets on the civilian population of Biafra and in Biafran territory can only confirm our suspicion of the role played by the US Government in the first Biafra Genocide of 1967-1970 and in the ongoing second Genocide against the Biafran people.

The world should notice  and take note of the crime against humanity being committed by the Nigerian Government using Super Tucano Military fighter jets sold to them by the United States of America. 

In another development, IPOB totally condemns the recent attack on a Police Station and on INEC office by unknown gunmen (UGM) in the Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra State. This level of violence and attacks are foreign to Igboland and are against Igbo culture. We maintain that most of these attacks are politically motivated and sponsored by the Nigerian Government and their agent provocatuer Unitary One Nigeria politicians to justify the use of Super Tucano Millitary Jets in Biafra territory against the civil population. 

We are warning all those agent provocateurs being used by the Nigerian Government in pepertrating this heinous crimes against humanity to stop aiding and abetting enemies of Biafra. The attackers and their sponsors are not representing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB, ESN or the Biafra Freedom Movement.

IPOB is a non violent Freedom and Self-Determination  Movement. We have maintained neutrality in the upcoming Nigeria selection that they call 2023 presidential elections. 

The attackers are either aggrieved persons on a revenge mission against the Nigerian State, or they are double agents of the Nigeria Government used to blackmail IPOB and to find false  justification for the wanton bombing and destruction of Biafran peoples' lives and properties. This explains why, as soon as these attacks happen, without any investigations, the Nigeria Army and Police would run off to the media and falsely claim that the attackers are IPOB members. A recent publication of daily mail, online news in the UK, quoted a Nigeria Police Spokesperson in Anambra State who made such false claims against IPOB. This indicates that the UK Daily Mail publishing house has joined the other British journalists in their blackmail of IPOB. It is most important that Journalists properly  investigate their information and stories  before publishing Nigerian Government propaganda against IPOB and Biafran people with the sole aim to demonize IPOB before the International Community.

IPOB will not be distracted or intimidated with media propaganda and blackmail.

Every man and woman of goodwill knows that IPOB is a victim of a grand plan to stop Self-Determination struggle of the Indigenous People of Biafra, while the Nigeria Government, working in concert with the British Government together with other Western nations are the aggressors. The same Nigeria Government is carrying out the killings, abductions, arson and massacres, while falsely  blaming IPOB for their crimes against humanity in Biafraland. 

One thing is certain though, and that is that in the end, Mazi Nnamdi KANU will be freed, and Biafra shall be restored by the grace of Eze Chukwu Okike Abiama.
