Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have raised the alarm over alleged threats to life of its members by suspected Nigerian security agents.

It said while some of the members have been marked for elimination, others were being hunted by the security personnel.

In a statement issued by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB added that the threat had compelled many to flee to other countries, while others were being trailed for arrest and torture.

The group regretted that those who fled the country were passing through trauma and emotional stress as they were being prevented from visiting their homes to attend the burial of their beloved ones.

The statement read in part, “We the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to put the whole world on notice that the lives of our members are in grave danger in Nigeria. Our members have been marked for elimination, and are being hunted by the Nigerian security agents.

“Some of our members who are lucky enough to escape to other countries escape untimely death while others who are not are being trailed for arrest and torture. Even those who fled the country are passing through trauma and emotional stress as they are being prevented to visit home to attend the burial of their beloved ones.

“Till today, operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS and other security agencies in Nigeria are still trailing IPOB Media Supervisor in Rivers State, Madam Obiageli Vivian Mboma (a. k. a Oby Mboma), who fled Nigeria since 2016.

“This Biafran activist could not attend her mother’s burial which held recently for fear of arrest by the Nigeria security agents. Madam Oby’s fate is common among thousands of other Biafran agitators who have today been made fugitives in their ancestral lands because the wicked security agencies in Nigeria have placed them on their wanted list.

“Our members are facing serious persecution in Nigeria. Security agents keep trailing and hunting them. Some of them are languishing in various detention facilities across the country without trial. Instead of fighting terrorists, bandits, killer herdsmen, Boko Haram and ISWAP that are at the verge of taking over Nigeria, the Nigeria Government is only busy hunting down peaceful Biafran agitators.

“Our members are in serious danger in Nigeria. We appeal for global assistance so that the Nigeria Government will not succeed in its evil agenda to decimate Biafra activists. We are peaceful people seeking the restoration of our beloved Biafran Republic. Our only crime to the Nigeria State is that we demand self-determination which is our fundamental right.”

While commending European countries and other nations for providing refuge to many of its members and other Biafran agitators being hunted for elimination in Nigeria, IPOB appealed to other countries of the world to come to its members rescue.

“The God of heavens will not leave them unrewarded for this humanitarian gesture. When Biafra is fully restored, we shall certainly reciprocate this goodwill,” the statement added.

Dokubo had said: “I am out for you. And I will get you. I just asked that our people be allowed to vote and you sent your dogs. I’ve broken their teeth.

Nnamdi Kanu, I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra.”

Dokubo has been against the IPOB leader following a rift between them. The disagreement between the duo is believed to hinge on ideological differences regarding the agitation for Biafra.

“When world leaders or respected commentators talk about Biafra, I respond. I can’t dignify a petty pipeline security guard with a response. He should focus on his business ventures and leave freedom fighting to freedom fighters.

“For a man of his bloated stature to belatedly realise that his father is Fulani, tells you all you need to know about him.

The Igbo leaders have said unequivocally that they oppose Nigeria’s split. On behalf of the Northern Governors, Governor El-Rufai assured the Igbo Leaders that everyone in the North is safe.

Senator Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State, has stated that the main reason Igbo politicians are not speaking out against Nnamdi Kanu is that they do not want to anger their youngsters.

Many of the South East elders are not in support of Nnamdi Kanu and his objective, according to the Federal lawmaker who was answering questions from BBC Hausa, but they are only wanting to stay safe.

The leaders, he claims, are attempting to avoid losing their children if they come out and express what they really think.
Okorocha also blames a lack of work in the region for the region’s security problems.

As a result, Okorocha urged the government to enlist the help of the monarchs to resolve sectarian tensions in the country’s southeast.
