The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has come out to state recent events in Nigeria have shown that Igbos are not wanted in the country.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the treatment being meted out to Igbos is unfair.
Powerful lamented that security agencies allowed Shi’ites to protest peacefully but attacked its members in Aba, Abia State.
The Eastern Updates reports that recently, several IPOB sympathisers protesting for Nnamdi Kanu’s release were reportedly killed in Aba by a combined security team.
Powerful said in a statement that: ‘We are surprised that the Nigeria government and its security agencies, especially their army and police allowed the Shiite Islamic group who protested peacefully twice in Abuja to do so without humiliation or attack, but murdered IPOB members who were protesting peacefully in Aba, Abia State for asking for the unconditional release of their leader, KANU on the 3rd of April 2023.
‘It is now on record that Ndigbo are not wanted in Nigeria due to the hatred shown to us. We must organize ourselves immediately and leave Nigeria for the other nationalities who are allowed to act freely in Nigeria.’
He pointed out that the actions of the Nigerian government had shown that Igbos were not wanted in the country.
