Telling Igbos to leave is the best gift from North since 1970 – IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has thanked Northern youths for the quit notice given Igbos in the region.
IPOB said the move would only help to hasten the actualization of Biafra.
This statement has drawn outrage and condemnation from different parts of the country.
IPOB, however, said it welcomed the quit notice by the Northern youths, while describing it as an exciting order and expressed its appreciation to the youths for the decision, which it said was going to hasten the actualization of the Biafra state.
“This is the best action that has come from Nigeria since the struggle began. We equally thank them for giving our people a time frame within which to leave; if they had been doing like this, there would not have been any problem.”
He urged Biafrans living in the north to come back without hesitation to avoid being killed as was the case in 1967.
He also appealed to governors of the South East to make enough vehicles available to bring Igbos in the north back home.
Also speaking on the investment of Igbos scattered all over the north, which was put at over N44 trillion, Prince Emmanuel said the investments were covered by the relevant sections of the United Nations, UN, charter.
According to him, “They should know that Biafra of today is not that of 1967, we are now more organized and united.
“The period of taking properties belonging to Ndigbo is gone and gone for good; it will not happen again because we are now even more sophisticated.”
