The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, on Tuesday, said it is not distracted by many lies and blackmail allegedly being perpetrated by the Nigerian Federal government and its security agencies against it.
Fidel Info reports that the pro-Biafra group also accused the Nigerian federal government and its security agencies of working with the criminals to blackmail it because it refused to give up on Biafra restoration agitation, adding that the security agents set INEC offices on fire and engage in some heinous activities and turn back to accuse ESN.
A statement by IPoB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, also alleged that the security agents are being used by politicians, to assassinate their opponents, who turn back to accuse IPoB of being responsible for such heinous crimes.
IPoB’s statement read: “Following the numerous sponsored criminal activities of the enemies of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPoB restoration movement to smear our reputation, we, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, once again ask the public to ignore the concocted lies associating IPoB with many criminal activities being levelled against us by the Nigerian federal government and its security agencies.”
The claim by the Nigerian federal government and its security agencies that IPoB is involved in the burning of INEC facilities, owning a bomb factory, and destruction of electoral party paraphernalia in Biafraland, are all aimed at our image.
“It is an obvious fact that the Nigerian government and its compromised security agencies are working with the criminals to blackmail IPoB because we have refused to give up on the Biafra restoration agitation. They set INEC offices on fire and turn around to claim it is ESN.
They assassinated politicians opponents and medical practitioners and turn around to claim it was IPoB just to damage our hallowed name, but we refuse to be distracted. We have uncovered their plan to rig the elections in the southeast against Peter Obi and blame it on IPoB and ESN.
“That was the same way they burnt markets and different properties of our people and tagged it on IPoB. They declared a 5-day ignored sit-at-home and killed our people and even killed a pregnant mother using IPoB and ESN name. We know their daily evil activities and will continue to expose them. They are in disarray because we uncover their evil activities before they are carried out.”

Non-Indigenes In Kwara State Declare Support For Gov AA
Non-Indigenes in Kwara State have declared a total support for Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in his re-election bid, pledging to vote overwhelmingly for him in the forthcoming election.
Fidel Info reports that they made this known at a consolidative forum meeting where they said they would continue to cooperate and support the administration of Governor AbdulRazaq.
In a statement by the Total Coordinator of the Amalgamated Non-Indigenes Associations, Barrister Adokutu Jafaru Ibie, previous administrations were condemned for playing politics of exclusion with non-indigenes in the state.
“Past governors only remember non-indigenes when it comes to getting our votes during electioneering periods. This time around, however, only the AbdulRazaq administration in the history of Kwara State has truly accorded non-indigenes the required recognition in the governance of the state.
“This is one government every non-indigene from the six geo-political zones of the country resident in Kwara must appreciate and work and accept for fulfilling promises made to the people. We’ll ever remember Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq as a promise keeper, and has truly activated the substance of his promises to the people of the six geo-political zones resident in Kwara State.”
Adokutu urged non-indigenes in the state not to be swayed by the deceit of opposition, telling them to queue behind the ruling APC in the forthcoming election.
“We accept the reorganization process of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Non-Indigenes, Hon. Caleb Ono Bobi, which has helped to better reposition all affiliate associations, clubs, unions etc of non-indigenes resident in Kwara State. He advised non-indigenes not to allow themselves to be swayed by the deceits of opposition parties in the state but to queue behind the All Progressives Congress led administration of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to return his government to power in at the March elections.
“In the same vein, the President of the South-South Community in Kwara, Sir Christopher Ozonuwe appealed to all non-indigenes in the state to be very watchful of political hawks during this election year so that they do not fall to their empty promises and open deceits but to always align with the purposeful governance of the current administration of AbdulRazaq.
“Our SSA and other government appointees on Inter-Community Relations are men of good professional and intellectual clout. So, we believe the governor has truly done us a good turn by appointing them into his cabinet. We are solidly behind them in the onerous task to re-elect our governor for another four years of untarnished governance of our Kwara State.”
Adokutu also announced that non-indigenes in the state will carry out a Non-Indigenes Solidarity Rally for the Governor’s second term re-election soon.
