IPOB insists on ''no Ohaneze summit in Awka tomorrow' , warns invitees

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has again, said there is no going back on its resolve to scuttle the proposed Ohanaeze summit scheduled for today ( Monday) in  Awka  Anambra State.

IPOB in a press statement released Sunday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said members of the pro- Biafra group were ready to make any sacrifice to achieve their aim.

This is coming in less than 48 hours IPOB warned invitees to the summit to stay away or be included on the list of Igbo traitors and sabotures.

IPOB gave reasons for its stiff opposition to the summit with focus on restructuring, saying it has become impossible to restructure Nigeria, hence any attempt to that effect would amount to efforts in futility.

The pro- Biafra group said it had lost faith in the continued existence  of Nigeria as indivisible entity, and would not want to mortgage the future of Biafrans which might not be guaranteed under 'one Nigeria'.

"We don't want another meaningless restructuring debate that will lead to further enslavement of our people for another 100 years.

 "If some individuals and groups are comfortable with their slave status in Nigeria they should permanently relocate to the North as some of them have done already. We the Indigenous People of Biafra will not be slaves in our own land.

"We will sacrifice everything sacrificeable, including our lives, to ensure we live as free men in the land of our ancestors as God intended before the white man came."

IPOB predicted that the event may be chaotic,   alleging that security operatives might kill innocent citizens under the guise of resisting those opposed to the summit.
It, therefore, advised invitees to the event to steer clear from the exercise as their safety might not be guaranteed.

IPOB also warned members of the public to keep off from the venue of the event to avoid becoming victims of " stray bullet" from overzealous security operatives.

"We, the worldwide family of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) once again warn anybody contemplating attending the Fulani sponsored restructuring jamboree to think twice before heading to Awka, on Monday  because their safety will not be guaranteed. 

" A socio-cultural association relying on their oppressors to come and protect them is a disgrace. The Fulani controlled Nigeria Police and Army have made it clear their armored tanks will be stationed around the venue to protect their stooges in Ohaneze Ndigbo. 

"We are certain that these Fulani armed men in uniform are under orders from whoever sent them to shoot people at sight. Any person could be an unintended victim of a stray bullet. 

"When the pandemonium starts on Monday, a codeine charged Fulani army or police officer armed with AK 47 will not know who is who. Documented incidents of stray bullets killing innocent bystanders abound. If you don't want to be a victim don't venture into Awka on the 21st of May 2018.

"Therefore, we are warning those invited by Ohaneze to stay away from Ekwueme Square in order to allow IPOB settle this issue of Hausa/Fulani collaborators and saboteurs once and for all time in Igboland."

IPOB said its threat to stop the summit should not be regarded as empty threat , boasting that the Anambra governorship election it earlier threatened to boycott recorded low voter turnout.

"Anybody equating what is about to happen at Ekwueme Square in Awka on Monday 21, 2018 with what obtained in  November 18, 2017 Anambra governorship election is a very poor student of social dynamics.

 "For starters,  IPOB said it would boycott Anambra elections and it did so successfully. That less than 2% of registered voters bothered to turn out on polling day is testament to the persuasive clout of IPOB.

"However you look at it, IPOB boycott of Anambra elections was a resounding success. If not why the continued witch-hunt against IPOB before 2019 elections?

IPOB said Nigeria was " fraudulently" stitched together against the will of the people just to satisfy the selfish interests of those behind the forceful amalgamation.
"Nigeria is a country conceived in fraud and sustained by a corrupt group of people that care only about themselves and their families".

IPOB however, said it would not compromise its non-violent philosophy despite any temptation but added that it would achieve its objective through civil disobedience.

"Our consistency in confronting this crumbling corrupt edifice with our civil disobedience is what distinguishes IPOB from any other group. We will not stop until our freedom is achieved. Anybody responsible for the death of any indigenous person of Biafra on Monday in Awka will surely .... Ohaneze Ndigbo should take note. "
