The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has hailed the people of Aba, Abia State, for shunning Tuesday’s campaign rally in the commercial city by President Muhammadu Buhari and the federal-ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The group, said in a statement issued yesterday that the people have, through their action, demonstrated their obligation to honour the memory of its fallen heroes as well as victims of Operation Python Dance.
IPOB condemned APC governorship candidate, Uche Ogah’s choice “to align himself with a party whose hands are allegedly stained with the blood of the innocent,” adding that “anyone associating himself with APC across Biafra land is an enemy of the people.”
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, reads in part: “We shall never forgive nor forget what APC at national level alongside their agents in PDP like Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu together with Willie Obiano did to our people.
“Metaphorically speaking, they are all dead men walking because they are all dead men walking. They have been rejected by the land and the people alike.
“We equally thank all those that obeyed the impromptu order from IPOB leadership to stay away from the stadium and areas of business as a mark of respect to those that fell at various locations in Aba under the rain of bullets from soldiers sent by this same APC regime in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
“No doubt, heavily photo shopped pictures will be circulated by Femi Adesina to distort the truth and hoodwink the gullible but indisputable fact remains that Aba rejected APC, Buhari, Igbo political prostitutes, Fulani errand boys and all they stand for.”
IPOB said that what happened in Aba is a test run of what is to come on February 16, saying that polling stations will be as deserted as Aba township stadium was.
Continuing, the statement said: “Every civilised government on this planet earth and political observer worth his or her salt around the world will know that Biafrans have collectively made up their mind to be a self governing independent nation.
“Those living in Aba and its environs have led the way for others to emulate.
“Almighty God has once again covered traitors and caliphate slaves in shame. They are APC politicians, Okezie Ikpeazu, David Umahi, Willie Obiano and those in PDP working for Jubril. But more especially those that planned this rally in Aba today will understand that IPOB is the people and the people is IPOB.”
