Further Clarifications Surrounding Our Dialogue with Ohaneze Ndigbo - IPOB

The Biafra Times | July 11, 2018

By Charles Opanwa

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has given further clarification on the much talked about peace parley with the apex Igbo group Ohaneze Ndigbo.

According to Comrade Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB in a press statement released by the group, he stated, “The meeting between Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), selected Igbo elders and Ohaneze Ndigbo is the first of many such meetings that will be held within the next two months to map out and agree an unambiguously strategic approach to the myriad of problems afflicting our people”.

“Our expectation is that at the end of the process, all thorny issues regarding the role certain individuals and groups played in the instigation of the murderous Operation Python Dance II will be adequately ventilated and addressed”. 

He said: Other major issues such as the illegal proscription of IPOB and terrorist tag dominated the deliberations, those that hastily banned IPOB activities in the South East that precipitated the illegal moved by the  Federal Government to proscribe IPOB has been given between now and the next meeting to do the needful.

“It is our conviction that it is immoral and makes a mockery of natural justice for peaceful, non-violent IPOB to be hamstrung in its efforts to checkmate Fulani terrorists by a ban imposed by the same South East governors whose states are under siege”.

Mr. Powerful also said “The fate of Biafra leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his father, HRM Eze Sir Israel Okwu Kanu, the Egwu-Ukwu 2 of Afaraukwu and his mother Ugoeze Sally N. Kanu were also tabled”. We are confident that at the next meeting a lot of satisfactory answers will be provided to enable IPOB to close this sad chapter in our history.

“For reasons bothering on integrity and confidentiality, we are not at liberty to delve into the minutiae of what transpired at the meeting or to disclose the identity of those that attended”.

Mr. Powerful went further and reinstated that IPOB is the largest mass movement in the world with an impeccable global reputation and are not in the business of public disclosure of confidential exchanges regardless of pressure or temptation.

“At this present time, we are engaged in sensitive discussions with institutions, governments and agencies around the world. They need to be reassured that under no circumstances will any aspect of our deliberations be divulged to a third party or made public without their prior consent and approval. The same principle applies in our meetings with Igbo leaders until a joint final communiqué is issued”.

“Our ongoing dialogue with Igbo leaders and Ohaneze Ndigbo has come at a very critical stage when the might of IPOB is required to address common security challenges. IPOB would not like to be seen as exerting undue pressure on those involved in making difficult life-changing decisions that will undoubtedly determine the success or failure of the parley”
