Biafra: IPOB has no government in exile

PLACE YOUR ADVERT HERE

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday dissociate itself from the Biafra Government in exile that was said to have been set up by the group outside the country.

This is coming after Finland-based Simon Ekpa, who is a self-professed disciple of IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu declared what he called full activation of Biafra Government In Exile (BGIE), on Wednesday.

However, reacting to the statement, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said the declaration should be disregarded as Ekpa is a scammer who is only using the name of the group for his personal gains.

The statement read, “We the global movement and noble family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to reiterate once again to Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom across the globe that IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu has not set up any Government In Exile (GIE). We, therefore, dissociate ourselves completely from the purported Government in Exile.

“IPOB has legitimate and well-established Institutions and well structured administrative hierarchy that oversees the day-to-day running of Biafra affairs. Already, all Diplomatic Missions and countries of the world know about Biafra agitation and they communicate with IPOB as the responsible authority that oversees the affairs of the Biafran people be it nationally or internationally.

“IPOB has international contacts and connections not through any worthless Government In Exile but through our established institutions and structures “So, anybody or group peddling or claiming to have set up Government In Exile has again embarked on a jamboree like those who came before them claiming to have formed a Government in Exile at one point in time.

“They simply do not deserve to be given any attention because this is the avenue that the Nigerian government wants to use to  water down our agitation  for total freedom. We are not unaware that some dissidents expelled from IPoB including a former deputy to our leader had once suggested this Government in Exile, to our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, but he did not buy into it knowing fully how needless it is at this stage of our struggle.

“It is unfortunate  that now  our leader is in detention, these same elements saw it as an opportunity to actualise their selfish ambition by quickly claiming to have set up the non-existent  GIE. We know  that their ultimate  aim is to use it to sell the Biafra  struggle to our enemies but they have failed woefully, We  knew that many infiltrators sponsored by some unfortunate politicians are fighting strongly to sell Biafra freedom through their main infiltrator hiding in Finland,” he said.
