The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned, in its totality, the alleged attack on Ndigbo in Lagos during the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The group alleged the attack in the West could be a ploy by the Fulani cabal to instigate ethnic conflict between the East and West, should Buhari lose the election.

Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, in a statement, wondered why some Yoruba politicians would allow themselves to be used by “Fulani-dominated” government of Nigeria to attack or stop Igbo people in Lagos and other parts of Yoruba land from voting for candidates of their choice.

Powerful said: “Igbo strongholds in Lagos have been under serious attack and humiliation by the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) thugs since election day. With every event and incident, the stance of IPOB is being justified on a daily basis. Those who doubted us in the beginning can now see that the only solution left is the restoration of the sovereignty of Biafra.

“We condemn, in its entirety, certain utterances and anti-Igbo sentiments emanating from certain quarters in Yoruba west and Fulani-controlled north.

“The brazen attempt to threaten, intimidate and stop Igbo Biafrans from voting for their choice candidate is unacceptable to any right thinking person, and is a confirmation, if any is needed, that Biafrans of whatever persuasion, is not wanted in Nigeria.

“This is the state of affairs we are not prepared to tolerate. Those hatching devilish plans to attack Biafrans and their business interest in other parts of Nigeria must understand the grave consequences their actions portend.

“This latest action against Biafrans living in northern and western parts of the country is not in tandem with the so-called spirit of one Nigeria. We must put it to the knowledge of every Nigerian who wish to know, that Biafrans will not allow a repeat of 1966, when Igbo were massacred in their hundreds of thousands across Nigeria. Those behind this latest plot must not underestimate our preparedness.

“It is unbelievable that some Yoruba leaders and their Fulani counterparts would summon the courage to ask Igbo/Biafran people not to vote for the candidates of their choice because they are not indigenes. Some went as far as saying Igbo should go back to Igbo land if they want to vote for any person other than APC candidate.

“Our people living in Northern and Western parts of the country must be prepared and never entertain any fear, particularly those in Lagos and Kano States, because any attempt to commence another round of ethnic cleansing of Igbo in the north or west, will be reciprocated in the east.

“Those acclaimed paid APC/OPC thugs who had the temerity to threaten Igbo and other Biafrans living in their areas must know they are doing that to their own detriment, because Biafrans are ready to face them, should the need arise.

Our movement and struggle for Biafra freedom, through peaceful means, must not be misconstrued by anybody or tribe in Nigeria, to mean weakness. Biafrans living in any part of Nigeria, outside Biafra land, must gradually prepare for total relocation of their businesses and families, particularly Lagos and Kano States, because they have perfected plans to forcibly eject them from those states.
