The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that the Igbo tribe are no longer wanted in Nigeria as they are being treated unfairly in the country.
They further stated that the recent happings killings, attacks and destruction of properties of Igbos in very part of Nigeria most especially Lagos, Kaduna and the recent killing of peaceful protesters in Aba shows the Igbos and South East region are no longer in the scheme of things in Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement released by the Publicity Secretary Of IPOB Comrade Emma Powerful on Sunday.
According to him, the treatment being meted out to Igbos is unfair lamenting that security agencies allowed Shi’ites to protest peacefully but attacked its members in Aba, Abia State.
Recently, several IPOB sympathizers and members of Eastern security network,ESN protesting for Nnamdi Kanu’s release were reportedly killed in Aba by a Joint Security Taskforce in Aba.
The Statement Reads;
“We are surprise 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.”
