The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commenced widespread mobilisation and sensitisation for referendum ahead of the emergence of the independent state of Biafra.

According to a press statement signed by the group’s spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful, “IPOB family members worldwide are working tirelessly to restore our long lost freedom and political independence from the Luggardian creation called Nigeria without bloodshed.”

it continued: “We invite the international community, men and women of goodwill to come and monitor this peaceful referendum in Biafraland.”

The statement noted that the pro-Biafran agitators required no clearance and permission of the Nigerian State or its officials to grant IPOB’s independence.

Urging Biafrans both home and in Diaspora to prepare for the forthcom ing referendum on their independence, the group said “we as a people have the right under international law to decide our fate through a referendum the same way Britain exercised their right to leave the European Union without the permission of the European Parliament or European Council.

“Scotland has also exercised this right to self-determination and so have the Quebec region in Canada. If these nations populated by humans like us Biafrans can exercise this right, so can we.

“The path to Biafra independence will not pass through Abuja because it is a process that will be considered by Biafrans only and no other people.

The organs of the region are the people designated to call the referendum for independence of Biafra and we have partners, not the Nigerian government, but the United Nations which will have the mandate to monitor the referendum processes and ensure compliance with the will so expressed.”

IPOB argued further that the same path to independence had also been implemented by South Sudan, Greenland, Kosovo, Albania, East Timor, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro among others.
