The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared its support for the Niger Delta Avengers’ plan to break away from the country on October 1.
The group said its support for Avengers is borne out of their philosophy that is related. It, however, reiterated the fact that it has no working relationship with Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND).
The spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful, said: “We have nothing to do with MEND, but our philosophy aligns with that of Niger Delta Avengers who bravely called for the release of our leader and had maintained it till date. Avengers and IPOB are one in pursuit of freedom for all the peoples of Biafra. IPOB is in total support of the proposed independence declaration proposed by Avengers on the 1st of October.
“IPOB recognises the efforts of the reformed MASSOB as they have publicly stated that they are no longer working with the now discredited leadership of BIM and former MASSOB. As long as they maintain this stance and do not engage in activities capable of undermining the pursuit of freedom, we shall continue to acknowledge their efforts. Some so-called Igbo leaders are mere Hausa-Fulani stooges and will kill their children if the North demands it. Thankfully, we still have honourable Igbo men left.”
He asserted that the group would not be soft pedal in spite of the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.  “IPOB is not in the business of soft-pedalling like previous groups that may have given the impression they were campaigning for our freedom when all they were after was a settlement. At the end of this battle for freedom, the world will know that there are those who cannot be bought nor compromised like Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB that he leads.
