On Saturday, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) gave her voice on the Arewa Youths’ quite notice to Biafrans living in the Northern part of the country and asking her people to comply with the notice as for the first time the youth has been reasonable to give a warning than the past where several Igbos lost lives and properties to the northern clash.
This were the statements of POB’s secretary on media and publicity Emma Powerful in Awka as he further appreciated the protesting Northerners for giving the notice as IPOB will continue to encourage Igbos to comply with the directives.
According to the press statement, “ Igbo massacres in Northern Nigeria has occurred so many times that it has almost become some sort of an annual sporting activity for blood thirsty Northern youths .
That is why we are particularly grateful to Arewa Youths and Elders for having the decency to give us prior notice before the slaughter commences. “ Biafrans in general also wish to thank these vocal Northerners for at least having the courtesy to issue advance warning this time before embarking on their routine massacre of Igbos and other Biafrans living in Northern Nigeria ; unlike what their fathers did in 1966 when death , destruction and mayhem were unleashed upon unsuspecting innocent civilian populations from the South comprising of mostly Igbo men , women and children .
He further appreciated the Arewa Consultative Forum, Arewa Elders Forum and Arewa Youth for being logical in the agitations of IPOB and need for a referendum to be conducted in Nigeria to decide the fate of the component ethnic nationalities criminally lumped together in 1914 by the British.
