British Government Afraid Of Success We've Achieved In Biafra Restoration Project - IPOB

By The Oriental Times
7th March 2017

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB yesterday alleged that the success it was recording towards the restoration of Biafra Republic was sending panic to the British government, arguing that it was for that reason that the former Nigerian colonial masters chose to counter the report of the Amnesty International on the killing of many Biafran agitators and the recent ruling of the Federal High Court, Abuja that IPOB was not an unlawful organization.

IPOB was reacting to a statement credited to the Nigerian foreign minister, Mr. Geoffrey Onyema, that the agitation for a sovereign State of Biafra was unacceptable because it was detrimental to the peace, unity, stability and development of the Nigerian state.

A statement by IPOB spokespersons, Mr. Emma Nmezu, and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, claimed that the British government was only using the Nigerian Foreign Affairs ministry as a cover up, insisting that the Nigerian foreign minister was speaking for Britain.

The statement read: “It is hypocritical of the British government to support Nigerian government in violently suppressing the quest for Biafra self-determination when the same British government opted out of European Union.

“This same British government allowed Scotland to conduct referendum without using B52 bombers to bomb the Scottish people. Why is it that the British government is so livid when it comes to the right of self-determination of the Biafran people?

“The most laughable aspect of British government‘s objection to Biafra exit from Nigeria is the lame excuse of believing in the territorial integrity of pre-independence Nigeria.

“But Nigeria’s territorial integrity is not the same from independence till date because the world is aware that a section of Nigeria called Bakassi had been ceded to the Cameroons, even though the Nigerian Constitution was not adjusted to exclude that ceded section.

“Also, the British government tried everything to resist the phasing-out of colonialism, but its resistance came to naught because colonialism was defeated even though the British played a trick on the world by giving the impression that Nigeria is no longer colonized whereas, in practice, Nigeria is still controlled and pillaged by the British government.

“The latest gimmick of hiding behind Nigerian officials will not do any good to the British government because Biafrans can read in-between the lines to decipher when the British government is speaking through these Nigerian government officials.

“We will like to advise the Nigerian government officials being used by Britain that they are wasting their time because the restoration of the nation of Biafra is unstoppable and irreversible.

“One incontrovertible fact the British government and their Nigerian collaborators must bear in mind is that the civilized world had determined that self-determination is an inalienable right and there is nothing anybody can do about it. Biafra is a must, whether the purveyors of iniquity in the name of keeping Nigeria one, like it or not.

“The British government can continue to speak through Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama as it recently did, but the fact remains that discerning individuals and governments of other countries now know the truth concerning the non-violent and peaceful nature of IPOB and its activities, which was corroborated by the recent judgment of Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako of Abuja High Court.”
