The recent statement credited to the Northern Elders in which they pleaded to President Buhari to crush IPOB, is illegitimate, foolhardy and uncalled for and as such, should be disregarded. The Boko haram terrorist sect has been busy killing and bombing everywhere in the North, yet this shameless elders have not made any meaningful effort to see that this bloody terrorists are wiped out. Calling on the Federal government of Nigeria to wipe out IPOB is an act of tribalism, immaturity and violence.

IPOB is never a violent group, IPOB has never killed anybody like some extremist groups like Boko Haram rather it is an internationally recognized lawful organization agitating for the freedom of their people.
Is IPOB the problem of Nigeria now, that will warrant such unguided and hopeless statements from these so-called elders? Why are these Northern elders so reluctant or hesitant to voice out the heinous crimes and atrocities committed by Fulani herdsmen?Why have they not called on the Federal government to crush them or treat them as terrorists they are?
It is very unfortunate that these rogue elements are more interested in tribal gain than that of national security. This will go a long way to prove that Biafrans can no longer continue to inhabit a country where tribal interests surpasses that of the safety of the citizens of the country. Since some people thinks they are majority and as such can marginalize others, it is about time other regions agitate for their independence. Therefore it is quite disappointing the manner this group of supposed elders reasons, especially concerning the people of Biafra.
It is noteworthy to mention categorically that our people must continue the agitation for their freedom despite what anybody may say or do about it. It is a divine mandate which no human can quench, no matter how hard they try. Assurance is being given to these evil men called elders that nothing can stop Biafra from been restored.
It is either Biafra or no British establishment called Nigeria.
