|Muhammadu Buhari Shaking Hands With Dozie Ikedife During One Of His Visits To Aso Rock|
The Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide, chose Nnamdi Kanu as its leader and thus, empowered him to lead the Biafra restoration movement. Nnamdi Kanu, being the director of Radio Biafra in his wisdom noticed that many Biafrans still do not understand what Biafra stands for and which led to misunderstandings amongst Biafrans. In this vein, he coherently instituted The Supreme Council of Elders to swiftly and quickly put a check to our fast eroding cultures and tradition. The sole duty of this council was to be a custodian of our cultures and values and advice accordingly when contacted.

The IPOB later realized months after the Supreme Council of Elder has been constituted, that these group of elders are not fully interested in anything relating to the Biafra restoration but for self-aggrandisement by lobbying for contracts and sorts from the Nigerian government and all other manners of anti-Biafra behaviors alien to us as a people. After many months of cautioning these men from such acts, their refusal to yield to correction necessitated Nnamdi Kanu to disband the ''Supreme Council of Elders.''
Bilie Human Rights Initiative is a non-governmental organization in Nigeria and it often requests for monetary grants from all Nigerians alike including the dreaded Fulani herdsmen that are presently killing Biafrans at will. Its membership is open to all Nigerians regardless of ethnicities.
Seeing that IPOB is waxing stronger without some of these expelled individuals, Bilie Human Rights Initiative quickly cajoled some of these gullible old men that they can actually actualize Biafra by fraudulently foisting the already dispersed council on Biafrans and renaming it ''The Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB.'' Bilie's approach was that it will apply for Biafra's independence from the courts of Nigeria. One is forced to ask this questions:
"How could a self acclaimed Biafran leader, dabble into politicking with the Biafra restoration cause and yet claim solidarity with same cause? "Is it right to claim that he is a Biafran, but still fraternizing with Muhammadu Buhari; who has done nothing but brutalise and slaughter our people with impunity?
"how can Bilie that solicits funds from Nigerians use the same funds to fight Nigeria in the court of law?
Nnamdi Kanu told them that this is a futile mission but these people refused to listen.

Biafra is not Igbo neither is Igbo, Biafra. Igbo happens to be the language spoken by some Biafrans, just like we have the Ijaws, Anangs, Efiks, Ibibios and so on.
The war on Biafra by the Nigerian government was not fought only by the Igbo speaking Biafrans but by all Biafrans. Even Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu's second in command was a non-Igbo speaking Biafran from Akwa Ibom, his name is Major Gen. Phillip Effiong.
If Dr. Ikedife claim he is a Biafra elder statesman, why then did he in the company of his band of beggars utter this statement while giving Buhari the nod to continue the abduction and killing of Biafrans: “Our private visit to the president-elect was to let him know that he is the president for all and that he has to accommodate people from the South-East in his administration, whether they voted for him or not. Afterall, Ndigbo are not saying that he did not win the election.”

Therefore, it is pertinent to correct all these abnormalities by these geriatrics. Salvaging our lives and protecting our future is a mission we the younger Biafrans must accomplish. Nnamdi Kanu promised the IPOB to never associate himself with any of these deadly and wicked politicians neither to solicit funds from them. It is self-evident that these group of disgruntled elder statesmen and their irrational followers tend to tarnish the image of IPOB and bootlessly render the efforts and hard work all IPOB worldwide have contributed towards projecting Biafra restoration to the world.
Their avaricious disposition is a renowned one indeed, this became evident when they succumbed to being bribed by Buhari, so as to create discord among Biafrans, and ultimately sabotage the restoration project. Their jealousy towards Nnamdi Kanu is legendary, and as such they will not hesitate to tarnish his image nor give it a second thought to derail this noble cause which he initiated, even if it means licking Buhari's feet. Nevertheless, the hardcore and unrelenting Biafrans will continuously silence these maligners by constantly telling the world the truth about who and what they represent-SABOTAGE.
