Response To The Purported Rating Of The Indigenous Individuals Of Biafra (IPOB) As The tenth Most Harmful Group In The Simply Launched International Terrorism Index
There is no such thing as a gainsaying the very fact, that it might be misplaced if the well-orchestrated, high-powered conspiracy between the Federal Authorities of Nigeria (FGN), its safety Companies and the international establishment concerned, at arriving at a stereotyped scripted final result of their determined effort to blackmail and demonize IPOB; will not be rebutted/clarified.
The Federal Authorities of Nigeria has been effortlessly pushing this clearly mischievous and malicious narrative, and relentlessly attributing all violent crimes and legal actions being perpetrated within the South-East, as an IPOB contrive.
Verifiable proof abounds, which conclusively exonerates IPOB from these heinous crimes, nonetheless, pointing at IPOB as these perpetrating these atrocious acts within the South-East is a effectively scripted conspiratorial agenda within the grand scheme that was got down to be completed by the Institution.
There are a number of cases, the place even the chief executives of the states within the South-East have overtly and publicly declared, based mostly on safety intelligence out there to them that the criminals behind these relentless bloody onslaughts on harmless residents within the South East usually are not IPOB, however a recognized dissident group being commandeered by a Finland based mostly Nigerian, who has no affiliation in any way with IPOB.
IPOB as a non-violent group, had a number of occasions prior to now, publicly disassociated themselves from the heinous actions of those marauders, who’re desecrating our land. From these plethora of publications, all within the public area, the management of IPOB often undertakes to take part in fishing out/flushing out these soulless beings from our land. The IPOB publications underneath reference are accessible on all social media platforms and print media.
What’s most shocking, and past comprehension, is the truth that at any slightest violent or legal prevalence/assault within the South-East, and its environs, the Nigerian Safety Companies will instantly name out the IPOB as these answerable for the heinous crimes, with none try at investigating the precise state/ non-state actors concerned within the alleged crimes.
What will not be contestable is the truth that the state is absolutely conscious of the methodology and modus operandi of this harmful group whose type is to cover underneath the guise of Biafra battle to perpetuate violent crimes, while they aren’t members of IPOB.
Unarguably, the essence of the FGN pushing this false narrative to the worldwide area is to twist, and consequently bias their notion of the IPOB, to erroneously settle for the dummy being bought to them that IPOB is answerable for the legal actions, killings and kidnappings happening within the South-East of Nigeria.
No surprise, the Federal Authorities of Nigeria’s first public response to the heinous actions of the Finland-based Nigerian, who has been desecrating our land along with his harmful group, was made solely few days earlier than the simply concluded Nationwide elections.
We want to once more, categorically reiterate, that the Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB), is a non-violent group, registered and recognised in a number of international locations the world over; particularly made up of residents who’re constitutionally exercising their globally recognised proper to self-determination as extantly enshrined within the structure of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, African Constitution on Human and Peoples Proper (Enforcement and Ratification) Act Cap A10 LFN 2004, and different worldwide devices, treaties and charters; and which group has no connection/hyperlink in any way with the legal actions within the South-East being perpetrated on our hitherto peaceable land, by some legal and violent dissidents, who falsely disguise underneath the guise of the Biafra battle, to perpetuate their atrocious and heinous acts.
Nonetheless, we will problem this misguided and misinformed rating by the Institute for Economics and Peace, headquartered in Sydney, Australia, earlier than the suitable fora.
We’re due to this fact interesting to all involved establishments to be correctly guided, cross verify their standards, details and indices, earlier than dashing to public house to defame, and demonize an innocuous /non-violent group legitimately exercising their constitutionally assured rights to self willpower.
Let the clever counsel prevail.
