IPOBThe Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has declared support for the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, saying the militant group is fighting for the freedom of the enslaved people of the South East by an oppressive Nigerian government.
The IPOB made this position known in a statement, entitled, ‘IPOB supports our kith and Kin- the NDA’, and jointly signed by the spokesmen of the organisation, Mr. Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, yesterday.
In the statement, the pro-Biafra group stated categorically that IPOB under the leadership of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, has no connection with some groups that have dis¬tanced themselves from the NDA, which it described as “our fellow freedom fighters”.
IPOB alleged that the Ralph Uwazuruike faction of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, which disowned the violent campaign by the Avengers last week, had been bribed with oil block allocations in the oil-rich areas of Biafra land.
It stated that “This same compromised group is known to have started the ugly incidence of kidnapping in Biafra land with its members often used as thugs and hired killers for politicians in the country.
“The NDA had consistently stated that the release of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is a precondition for any discussion with Nigeria. Unfortunately and disgracefully, the incompetent Nigerian government has swept this demand under the carpet while magnifying the notion of amnesty payments and resource control as reasons for the NDA‘s actions.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the NDA is fighting for the freedom of the people of Biafra and not for amnesty payment or for resource control as some commentators would like to believe. When Biafra is finally liberated from the bondage called Nigeria, resources shall be controlled by the owners of the land where those resources are located.
“The incompetent Nigerian government should stop deceiving the entire world into believing that what the freedom fighters of NDA are demanding is resource control. Amnesty is associated with criminality and a people who are fighting for their freedom should not be unjustly termed criminals”.
“The notion and talk about amnesty for our own freedom fighters, the NDA, is a misnomer and should be taken out of any discourse. On the contrary, amnesty should be granted to the Nigerian government, especially to those from the criminal class masquerading as elite, who unjustly appropriated oil and gas wells and other resources in Biafra land to themselves and their cohorts to the detriment of the masses”, it added.
