Referendum: This Is The Last Time We Will Warn You, Don’t Stand In Our Way – IPOB To Ohanaeze

The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) has warned the apex Igbo sociocultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo not to stand in the way of Igbos agitating for Biafra.

The group’s spokesman issued the warning while reacting to a comment by a chieftain of Ohanaeze, Barrister Augustine Amaechi, against the Biafra referendum.

Amaechi had said Igbos want restructuring and not a referendum as claimed by IPOB.

Reacting to the chieftain’s comment, the group insisted that they remain resolute in their clamour for the Biafra referendum.

Powerful described those against Biafra’s referendum as political jobbers.

He urged the Ohanaeze to publicly distance themselves from Amaechi’s statement or they would consider the apex Igbo group an enemy of the movement.

A statement by Powerful reads partly: “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the unguarded statements credited to one Abuja-based Ohaneze Ndigbo chieftain, Barrister Augustine Amaechi claiming that Ohaneze Ndigbo wants to restructure not a referendum.

“The few political jobbers in Ohanaeze Ndigbo demanding restructure should perish with it. Biafrans want a referendum.

“IPOB members and supporters worldwide represent over 90% of Biafrans. We have made it clear to the Nigerian government and the international community that Biafrans want a referendum to democratically decide to either remain in Nigeria or exit Nigeria.

“This is our only demand. We are not going back on our demand for a UN-supervised referendum in Nigeria for the determination of Biafra Independence. Once the Nigerian government heeds our democratic demand for a Biafra referendum, Nigeria’s major problem will be solved.

“We shall not warn Ohanaeze again. If this buffoon called Augustine Amaechi is speaking for himself, Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership must make that clear publicly otherwise we shall take his ranting as the position of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and this will only mean that the Ohanaeze has been mobilized by the enemies of our people to sabotage the present momentum and progress being made to hold the Zoological Republic of Nigeria accountable for the violent violations of Biafrans fundamental Human Rights, the crimes against humanity and genocide it is perpetrating against the Indigenous People of Biafra.”
