The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that anybody, including he former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, can form a group to fight for the realization of Biafran Republic from Nigeria, but that Nnamdi Kanu remains the indefatigable leader of the struggle.
Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Mr. Powerful in a statement today, March 17, said: “IPOB and its indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have been in the forefront of this struggle for our freedom, and nobody can controvert that. Formation of any pro-Biafra group is no threat to IPOB. Rather, the coming on board of more pro-groups makes the burden of IPOB lighter.
“When Biafra comes eventually, the joy of the new nation will surpass whatever sacrifice made by any group.
“Biafra is for everybody not for one man, therefore IPOB is not against any group both old and newly formed group.”
“IPOB is not interested with the formation of Biafra agitating group. Anybody can form his and her own group but one thing is certain let them maintain stand to fight for Biafra freedom and independence. IPOB will support any group genuinely formed to fight for Biafra freedom.
“We have said it time without number that anybody can form any group it likes and use it to pursue the Biafra cause. We are not against any group genuinely fighting for Biafra restoration.
