Biafra: Igbo Youth Condemns Right Group's Attack On Amnesty International

Friday 9 December 2016

The Igbo Youths Forum (IYF), a socio-cultural group, has condemned what it described as the orchestrated attack on the Amnesty International for its report alleging that the Nigerian security forces killed over 150 members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Movement for the Actualization of Biafra (MASSOB) and other Biafran activists.

The President of the Forum, Comrade Kenneth Emeh, told the Daily Times that the attack by Rev Christe Amor, the promoter of the Stand Up for Nigeria, a civil society organization, on Amnesty International, showed the obvious partisanship of the group. He said the case of Amor was a clear indication that some civil society groups were set up by government to hold brief for it, accusing Stand Up Nigeria as being one of such groups.

Emeh described Amor as “an agent of darkness to truncate the move for the sovereignty of the people of Biafra”, saying that this would surely fail. “Where was he when IPOB members were massacred in a church at Nkpor, near Onitsha, by the Nigerian army. As a civil society group, they are supposed to be neutral but they are not, which means they are government stooges.

“Where were they when the Fulani herdsmen killed over 200 Igbos in Nimbo, Uzo-Uwani Local Government of Enugu State, when our sister was murdered in Kano and the the killers were set free” he said. Emeh called on Igbo youth to wake up from slumber, saying they cannot watch while ndigbo were being massacred, stressing, “we will join forces with other Biafran activists to liberate ndigbo. Whether they like it or not ndigbo must be liberated. Before the amalgamation (of 1914), we were on our own. We want to be on our own now. We cannot fold our hands. Biafra must be a reality.”

The youth leader lambasted the former Lagos State Commissioner, Abubakar Tsav for his continuous attack on the Igbo race, saying that Tsav, although a Tiv, was suffering from stooge-mentality of the Hausa –Fulani oligarchy. He challenged Igbo youths to wake up from slumber, saying that they cannot watch while the entire Ndigbo were being massacred by their avowed enemies. Emeh said “we will join forces with brother Biafran activists to liberate our people. Whether they like or not, ndigbo must be liberated. Before amalgamation, we were on our own. We cannot fold our hands. Biafra is a reality”, he vowed.
