The Leadership of IPOB has condemned in all its entirety the unnecessary name calling by some groups and individuals, during the #Endsars Protests across the country. The IPOB said it is aimed at tarnishing the hard earned reputation of IPOB which is known world wide for Peaceful demonstrations.

This was made known to the media in a Press Statement issued by IPOB's Media and Publicity secretary Comrade Emma Powerful. Details of the Press Release as attached.

The laughable accusations from of some groups, individuals and other mischief makers that IPOB killed some northerners living in Biafraland particularly in Rivers State during the #EndSARS nationwide protests is idiotic and condemnable.

First it was some ethnic jingoists that began to peddle this wicked narrative in failed efforts to twist glaring facts. They accused IPOB of hiding under the protests to destroy Yoruba properties in Lagos which is another black lie engineered by agents of neo-colonialism and southern weaklings. We gather that some reactionary groups have joined the fray - all targeted at isolating Ndigbo and other Biafrans living in the north for possible extermination as they did after the 1966 coup.

It's not in doubt that the #EndSars protests w a spontaneous reaction of angry Nigerian youths against the Police and Army brutality in addition to bad governance. The protests were very peaceful until the 12th day when soldiers and police massacred protesters at Lekki and other parts of the country.

Nigerian youths quite rightly retaliated these barbaric killings by Nigeria's overzealous security operatives. The reprisal attacks occurred in different parts of the country and not limited to Biafraland.

How come the enemies of Biafra are now beginning to point accusing finger at IPOB? Are they telling us that IPOB are responsible for the burning of Igbo properties and the car Mart at Apo Villa Abuja? What about the destruction of Igbo properties in Kano, Lagos and the killing of Igbos in Obigbo Rivers State where thugs backed by soldiers were caught on camera attacking Biafrans in broad daylight?

Maybe the people in dark suits ferrying thugs with DSS SUV Jeeps to attack protesters in Abuja were IPOB members, or the people that used Lagos State owned BRT buses to ferry known APC thugs from Mushin to protest grounds to hack innocent protesters to death are also IPOB family members. The Janjaweed reprobates that attacked Apo mechanic village were they IPOB family members? The criminals that destroyed properties at Nnewi are they also IPOB members?

It is imperative we remind Nigerians that IPOB does not engage in barbaric acts like killings and destruction of properties like Fulani terrorists, including those in military and police uniforms. We are not like any of the numerous Fulani terrorist herdsmen killing, raping and pillaging at will and we do not intend to become one. 

It's very appalling that enemies of freedom and caliphate slaves, with the support of traitors and selfish politicians are busy twisting the narrative to blackmail IPOB, we know their game plan; they are seeking to justify their long held desire to militarize Biafraland using the purported destruction of property as an excuse.

But we want to quickly remind them that such lame excuse cannot fly. It is on record that Biafraland was not the only place where there were destruction of properties during the #EndSARS protests. Casualty figures were even higher in some states outside Biafra, yet the ongoing heavy deployment of soldiers in Biafraland, especially in Imo State is not witnessed anywhere else. Shame on the political class for conniving with age long enemies of Biafra to bring war to our land.

We cannot be intimidated any more. They have shown us that we can never be accepted in their one Nigeria and they cannot deploy Boko Haram terrorists in military uniform in our land to kill us in cold blood and expect us not to defend ourselves and our land.
