Indigenous People of BiafraThe Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to Rev Father Ejike Mbaka’s counsel to Pro-Biafran youths agitating for the release of Radio Biafra Director and Leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, to go back to their businesses as the protests could lead to their death.

Speaking at his weekly Adoration Ministry, the Enugu-based Catholic priest had described the protests as “evil”, saying rather than add value to their businesses, the protests were crippling economic activities in the South-east and South-south states and had led to the deaths of some of the protesters.

“Locking up your shops and disrupting economic activities will not add any naira to your pocket, whatever grievance you have could be resolved through dialogue”, Rev. Fr. Mbaka was quoted as saying.

Reacting to Mbaka’s comment in a broadcast on Biafra Radio, IPOB denounced him as a compromised priest speaking from both sides of his mouth.

Deputy Leader of IPOB, Uche Mefor, who fired back at the cleric, noted that “Biafra is more than money!”

Mefor noted that the youths are protesting against injustice, oppression and subjugation, which is motivating them to seek their freedom.

The IPOB deputy leader further wondered why Mbaka, who is a priest, could not find courage to condemn government’s extrajudicial detention of Kanu.

He also advised the Catholic priest to refute his statement immediately if he was misquoted.

According to Mefor, Biafran youths have seen the truth having been enlightened on the need to restore Biafra, and nothing can stop them from demanding their rights.
