The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has told its members to halt all forms of attacks against the Yoruba nation with immediate effect.
Leader of the IPOB worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu gave the directive in a statement signed by Mazi Chika Edoziem, the organization’s Head of Directorate of State.
By the new directive, according to the statement, all media personnel operating on different segments and platforms of the organisation as well as the generality of IPOB members, are not expected to attack the Yorubas going forward.
“Consequent upon the directive by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the IPOB, worldwide during his live broadcast of Sunday, 19th of July 2020 to the effect that all attacks on Yoruba people should cease forthwith, Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra has deemed it instructive to reiterate and reaffirm the adherence by all to that directive from our leader.
“To this effect, all IPOB media personnel operating on different segments and platforms be it on print, radio, visual and social media as well as the generality of IPOB family members must strictly obey that directive as given by our leader.
“lt is time to exhibit once again the discipline for which IPOB is known for. We must use the knowledge and information acquired from Radio Biafra during Kanu’s teachings and those attained from individual research to present our viewpoints on issues of public interest and debate.”
