IPOB Welcomes Arewa Quit Notice, Pleads For Time To Relocate by sharpden: 5:03pm On Jun 10, 2017
THE Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has expressed gratitude to Arewa groups for having the courtesy to give the Igbo an advance warning to vacate northern Nigeria.

The group, however, pleaded for ample time for Igbo to relocate back to the south.

Some Arewa youth groups had recently issued three months quit notice from the north to Igbo residing there.

Although the call was roundly criticised by northern governors and stakeholders, spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) Ango Abdullahi, on Friday, expressed support for the youth groups.

Reacting in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB assured the Arewa groups that its people will heed the warning and leave northern Nigeria.



IPOB called on all southerners in the north to start exiting the region as soon as possible.

“We the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it’s leadership worldwide wish to sincerely thank the Arewa Elders Forum(AEF), Arewa Youths and Arewa Consultative Forum for seeing sense in what IPOB has been saying about the need for a referendum to be conducted in Nigeria to decide the fate of the component ethnic nationalities criminally lumped together by the British in 1914,” the statement read.

“Biafrans in general also wish to thank these vocal Northerners for at least having the courtesy to issue advance warning this time before embarking on their routine massacre of Igbos and other Biafrans living in Northern Nigeria; unlike what their fathers did in 1966 when death, destruction and mayhem were unleashed upon unsuspecting innocent civilian populations from the South comprising of mostly Igbo men, women and children.

“Igbo massacres in Northern Nigeria has occurred so many times that it has almost become some sort of an annual sporting activity for blood thirsty Northern youths. That is why we are particularly grateful to Arewa Youths and Elders for having the decency to give us prior notice before the slaughter commences.

“We promise to adhere to your warning to leave Northern Nigeria because a word is enough for the wise. Biafrans and other Southerner should start packing their properties to come down to the South. We also advice the Northern youths and their Elders to keep it on because all they have done is exercise their right to free speech which is not a crime under any law known to man. We are therefore against those calling for the arrest of these Arewa Youths and their Elders.

“It is abundantly evident from the genocidal statements coming from certain influential segments of Northern Nigeria that the British socio-political experimentation and economic fraud we know today as Nigeria, should not have been created in the first place. IPOB is very much aware of the covert blackmail and implied threat inherent in the utterances emanating from Islamic Northern Nigeria.



“Furthermore, the assumption that economic investments of Biafrans in the Northern part of the contraption called Nigeria is an impediment to Biafra restoration project is misguided and most definitely misplaced. This is cheap blackmail designed to trigger rancour among Biafra populations because the North have always assumed and wrongly too, that Igbos will place economic well being over and above their life. This assumption is based on a false premise and one we are determined to prove same as events unfold in the coming weeks and months.

“IPOB under the divine leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the instrument Chukwu Okike Abiama (God Almighty) is using to restore Biafra, therefore we are not afraid of our enemies, neither will any threat or violence from any quarter deter us. We remain peaceful in our noble quest to restore Biafra but we must caution that we always retain the right as a people to defend ourselves should the need arise.

“The civilised world is aware that we IPOB have been adopting peaceful means to restore Biafra since 2014. It is the Arewa Islamic Northern Nigeria dominated Army, Police, Navy and Civil Defence that has brought torture, killings, massacres and mayhem to communities and populations in the South. Till date, nobody has been held to account despite the existence of a comprehensive Amnesty International report to this effect.

“We are aware that these Northern youths and their sponsors Britain, have perfected plans to begin another round of killing of innocent people as the did in 1966. We advise them not to make this mistake because Britain will no longer protect Islamic Northern Nigeria because in this digital age, the world is watching. Allow Biafrans time to relocate peacefully back to Bafraland, that is all we ask.”

Mehnn! This shiiit is getting very real.

A very beautiful and well articulated writeup, i must confess. Not the mumble jumble style of tge Arewa almajiris. Not surprising though. The igbos have always had a way with words. They have a way using language in a rich and sophisticated manner that used to even annoy the British in the colonial era. A fact that even Chinua Achebe highlighted in some of his books

Among the Igbo the art of conversation is regarded very highly. And proverbs are the palm oil with which words are eaten-Things Fall Apart.

The Commissioner did not understand what Obierika meant.....One of the most infuriating habits of these people was their love of superfluous words, he thought--Things Fall Apart

Thanks Emma powerful for this intelligence response, its a Thank you messages and also a reminder that self defense will be inevitable when needed, I read lots of people saying northern ultimatum is the medicine that cured Biafran/IPOB madness but, what they refused to understand is that a wise man will pause and reason to reinforce intelligently.. its a one step at a time and every thing done to bring us down is actually turning to a stepping stone, whatever is thrown at us from whatever dimension will surely have a hook to helping our dream so its worth taking our time to examine how it would benefit the struggle..

That's right

Next,
Their senators, ministers, political appointees representing the "Zoo" should start resigning.

If they're not greedy, they should all vacate their respective offices

I am still trying to understand why the Igbos are complaining? It is IPOB that was asked to leave, not IPOD. Or is there something I am missing?

It is the Arewa Islamic Northern Nigeria dominated Army, Police, Navy and Civil Defence that has brought torture, killings, massacres and mayhem to communities and populations in the South.

We advise them not to make this mistake because Britain will no longer protect Islamic Northern Nigeria because in this digital age, the world is watching.

Meanwhile, has the North forgotten that it also has people living in the South? Intolerance is a really bad thing. Islamic Northern Nigeria. Hmm. Is that the grand plan? Only Muslims in the North and all others in the South.. in a country that is supposedly one. What a joke.

As for Britain, they have enough on their plate right now to bother about Nigeria.

Nigeria and it's component nations now more than ever need a referendum. There should be no fear in organising one. If we decide to remain one nation then we must also negotiate the terms of our union and correct the many anomalies that bedevilled us from independence. This is the only way we can move forward and quench any further agitation.








On a side note: Given Nigeria's history of rigged elections and figure manipulation beyond the naked eye, we should keep in mind that a referendum can also be rigged especially considering the fact that our 'elected' favour the continuous existence and sustenance of the current union Nigeria!
