IPOB Customary Government reacts to allegation of gratification

Press Release

The attention of the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra has been drawn to a media report that the adopted Political ideology of the Customary Govt is a ploy to secure gratification from the Nigeria Politicians. The Customary Government of IPOB wishes to reiterate her resolve to restore Biafra through the instrumentalities of legal, diplomatic and political processes. The issue of national liberation movement is a serious business that requires a lot of tact, diplomacy and professionalism-not mere media propaganda.

The general public should, therefore disregard any insinuation suggesting that freedom fighting cannot be mixed with politics. It is important to note that the Customary Government of IPOB has laid a legal foundation  for the activation of other strategies to pursuing the Biafra Independence .It is no longer news that the case between the Indigenous People of Biafra led by Rtd Justice Eze Ozobu OFR and Federal Republic of Nigeria is still pending in Federal High Court ,Owerri.This historical Court case is being led by the wisemen as acknowledged by Nnamdi Kanu himself (click the link below) and there is no indication that they have compromised.


It is rather laughable that a group of people who have wasted their goodwill and have exhausted their plans to restore Biafra would now turn around to tag Customary Government ‘mushroom organisation’. We pray that the deceit game should come to an end so that the public will know the whole truth behind the current Biafra struggle. Does it make commonsense to see all Politicians as HIV patients? Does it make street sense to boycott elections organised in Nigeria? To us in the Customary Government of IPOB,we are still Nigerians by Citizenship but Biafrans by indigenous identities.

Even Prof Charles Soludo recognized the power of the Customary Government of IPOB during the book launch: The politics of Biafra and the Future of Nigeria(see the link below):


As Indigenous People still living in Nigeria, we have inalienable rights to chose who become  Governors of our various states including Anambra State.It amounts to irresponsibility to exclude ourselves from the political process in Nigeria even when we have not secured Biafra.It makes sense to chose one of us or  sympathizers to preside over the affairs of our states  as we are not in a state of war with Federal Republic of Nigeria.A rational mind would have converted IPOB mass movement to take over the political space of former eastern Nigeria.

Finally,we want to assure our people that our international contacts are yielding positive results, the Anambra election will serve as a mini Referendum as we need to prove to our international friends that our people at home desire Biafra and freedom.
