"Stay Away From IPOB Peaceful Rallies Anywhere In Biafra Land" - Ipob Warns The Nigerian Army
9th September 2017
The Nigerian jihadist Army has once again launched a military operation code-named "OPERATION PYTHON DANCE" phase II in Igbo land area of Biafra, unconstitutionally referred to as 'South East'. They are to commence operation any moment after the launching of the military operation as September 15 was mentioned.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (De Great) hereby issue a stern warning to the Nigerian Army to stay away from any IPOB peaceful rallies anywhere in Biafra land. IPOB saw it necessary to give this serious warning to the Nigerian Army commanders in the South East to return their officers to the barracks because there is no security threat anywhere in Biafra land. If there is anywhere thousands of Army officers are desperately needed, it should be Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States due to the menace of Boko haram and not in Biafra land.
The world is presently aware that the Nigerian government has been using her jihadist Armed Forces, the Army in particular to push IPOB to violence in order to tag IPOB as a terrorist organization. The phase II of "Operation Python Dance" launch in South East is yet another serious means of provoking IPOB to violence due to the countless times of provocation of peaceful and law-abiding Biafrans at checkpoints around Biafra land.
The Nigerian government enjoys seeing her jihadist Armed Forces massacre Biafrans for no reason other than arch-hatred on Biafrans. If not, what is the need of "Operation Python Dance" in Igbo land which is presently the most peaceful place and crime free society in the world? The only sign of corruption still noticeable in Biafra land is caused by the Nigerian corrupt Police. They extort money from law-abiding Biafrans through incessant and illegal arrest as well as checkpoints under severe intimidations.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, under the supreme leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, hereby warn the Nigerian Army not to allow its officers come near IPOB peaceful rallies. IPOB has her own internal security, trained in good management of crowd no matter the surge of the crowd unlike the overzealous and intellectually bankrupt Nigerian Armed Forces who cause stampede by themselves because of poor training in such gatherings.
The Nigerian army officers must not come near IPOB rallies as Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (De Great) is about to hit Enugu for the continuation of his rallies all round Biafra land. The world is hereby put on notice that Biafrans have not recorded any casualty since they started their rallies in any city in Biafraland. Should there be any stampede, violence or any form of ugly situation which may erupt as expected, if any interruption of IPOB rallies occurs from the trigger-happy Nigerian jihadist army, the world will be the witness that we have been having peaceful rallies in many cities of Biafra land such as Aba, Onitsha, Obigbo, Owerri, Abakaliki and many others which the Nigerian army did not interrupt and they went successfully.
It is necessary to let the world know that IPOB is not in any competition of might with the Nigerian government or her Armed Forces because all we need is a date for Biafra referedum so that the people will willingly choose where they want to belong through a peaceful plebiscite. The Nigerian army is not needed anywhere near IPOB rallies because our rallies have never turned violent anywhere conducted, hence there is no need for military siege around our venues.
The army officers should operate within the globally recognized rules of engagement which begin with a retreat to barracks until invited to suppress outrageous riots or insurrection or a declaration of state of emergency which will be constitutionally placed in the government official gazette. If such situations analyzed above have not arisen, it is absolutely out of the globally recognized rules of engagement for the Nigerian jihadist army to carry guns up and down in Biafra land causing problems in a peaceful society and brutalizing law abiding citizens of the land. The Nigerian Army laying siege in Biafra land is uncalled for. They must go back to their barracks or the world will see their operation in Biafra land as pure dictatorship in a democratic society. A word is enough for the wise!
