The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said shedding blood is not needed in actualizing Biafra.
While condemning the bloody attack of Nigerian security officers at Ehime Mbano area of Imo State, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful no fewer than eight police officers and military officers were killed.
Condemning the incident, Powerful lamented that Biafra’s agitation had been peaceful until the Nigerian government started sponsoring splinter groups.
A statement by Powerful reads partly: “We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable brave leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU condemn the bloody attack that led to the death of 8 Police and military officers at Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo State.
“Such reckless attacks and shedding of blood are not needed to achieve Biafra freedom in our territory.
“The Biafra agitation championed by IPOB since 2012 has been peaceful until the Nigeria government started sponsoring splinter groups in order to blackmail IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Today, the monsters they have spoon-fed are consuming them. We in IPOB for years have been shouting about the evil plan of the Nigerian government towards IPOB’s peaceful agitation which is simply demanding for a referendum date for the Biafran people to determine their own fate as Indigenous people.”
