The group in a statement on Thursday said that the call by Obasanjo to stop Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members was a systematic way of telling the whole world that he had plans on the way to over throw this present government and assassinate Nnamdi Kanu and others who are calling for the restoration of Biafra.
The group further said that if anything happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others or military takeover in Nigeria the whole world should hold Obasanjo responsible. The IPOB statement read thus The members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide and it’s leadership worldwide wish to put the whole world on notice of the call by the two times former president of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra through the Military coup.
We are drawing the attention of the well meaning civilised society across the globe that Obasanjo has decided to put Nigeria into coax by calling Nigeria Army to plot a coup in Nigeria to justify his call to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other members of IPOB who are bent in using peaceful means to restore Biafra. Since the inception of IPOB and emergence of Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu we have maintained the nonviolent posture towards the restoration of Biafra, IPOB has never killed any fly rather the Federal Government of Nigeria and her security operatives has been killing the innocent members of IPOB and Bisfrans without provocation.
IPOB and Biafrans are not calling for war or any confrontation with Nigeria Government, individual or group, what we are requesting is referendum to ascertain whether the people of Biafra would choose to remain in Nigeria or not.
