NEWSBiafra: IPOB reacts to military declaring it terrorist group


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the declaration by the Defence Headquarters that the group is a terrorist organisation.
The group said it was a non-violent movement and that it had never carried arms or killed anyone.
IPOB’s position was made known by Prince Kanu, the younger brother of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu during a chat with newsmen on Friday.
He said: “It is very funny that is coming from a military intelligence officer. One, IPOB is a non-violent movement.
“We do not carry arms; we’ve never asked anyone to kill for us neither have we killed anyone. If you look at our records, our records are clean and straight.”
“From inception, Nnamdi Kanu made it clear to the whole world that we are non-violent freedom fighters and that is the way it has been,” Prince Kanu said.
Reasons given by the Defence Headquarters for declaring the group a terrorist organisation include the formation of a Biafra Secret Service, claimed formation of Biafra National Guard, unauthorised blocking of public access roads; extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal roadblocks, and militant possession and use of weapons (stones, Molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles among others) on a military patrol on September 10, 2017.
