IPOB faults the Nigerian government for declaring it a terrorist organization. The group says despite its proscription in Nigeria, its members can still meet openly in other countries without been viewed as terrorists. Nnamdi Kanu’s family dismisses claims that police recovered lethal weapons when they raided their compound at Afara Ukwu on October 8.
Some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have held a meeting in Switzerland despite being tagged a terrorist organisation by the Nigerian government.
The pro-Biafra group in statement on Sunday, October 15, criticised the Nigerian government for declaring it a terrorist organisation. The IPOB said despite its proscription in Nigeria, its members can still meet openly in other countries without been viewed as terrorists. The group said IPOB is a monster that can’t be defeated by the Nigerian government. Read the full statement by the group below:
“Unstoppable ~ Indomitable ~Worldwide “IPOB Switzerland General meeting in Basel.
“Now tell me which terrorist organisation meets openly in Switzerland? Do you see how foolish Jubril a.k.a Muhammadu Buhari and his Arewa North APC ruling party are. When you have a compound illiterate in power, you bring shame upon your country. “Nigerians can now see why IPOB is a monster that can’t be defeated intellectually by the morons that run the Zoo.”
Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu’s family has dismissed claims that police recovered lethal weapons when they raided their compound at Afara Ukwu on October 8. Emmanuel Kanu, a brother to the missing leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, dismissed the allegation and urged well-meaning people to ask the police how the weapons that were allegedly recovered from the house got there. Kanu also accused Anthony Ogbizi, the Abia commissioner of police of disrespect, asking him if he could have raided the palace of the Obong of Calabar under any guise the way he raided his father’s palace, the Nation reports.
