Asari Dokubo, Militant group trying to make peaceful Biafra agitation look violent before the international community – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has issued a warning to Asari Dokubo, cautioning him to keep his newly formed militia group away from the Southeast region. In a statement released on July 26, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, expressed surprise at the silence of Igbo political leaders and the Nigerian media regarding the formation of Asari Dokubo’s militia group. IPOB alleges that this group is contributing to the unrest in the South East.

According to the statement, IPOB believes that Asari Dokubo’s group has two main agendas: firstly, to portray the peaceful Biafra agitation as violent before the international community, and secondly, to create an unsafe environment that discourages Nigerians from the South East from investing in their homeland. The pro-Biafra group warns that if Asari Dokubo’s militia group does not steer clear of the South East, they will face the consequences of IPOB.

The statement reads;

“The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, led by Mazi Nnamdi  Okwuchukwu  Kanu, wish to draw the attention of our people to what is happening and what is about to happen. It is unfortunate that Nigeria media and Igbo political leaders are mute over the formation of Militia headed by Alhaji Asari Dokubo.

The group which is among the groups causing mayhem that is sweeping across Igbo land. When IPoB launched Eastern Security Network, ESN in December 2020 to protect our bushes and forests from terrorists, the Nigeria media and some Igbo politicians were against our self-defense project.

Most of our people did not foresee what we saw then but were deceived to downgrade the danger facing our region from herdsmen with connivance of Nigeria security agents. But today, ESN has managed to secure our bushes and forests for our people to go back to farms, which was hitherto impossible due to Fulani massacring activities.

Currently, Biafrans, particularly Ndigbo, are confronted with threats from the Militia group. Unfortunately, some prominent Igbo men and women are behaving as if they are not aware of the dangers ahead. The ongoing insecurity in our region are masterminded by the fifth columnists and their militias. Their agenda are; first to make peaceful Biafra agitation look violent before the international community.

Their second agenda is to create an unsafe environment in order to discourage our people from bringing their investment home even as they are being victimized in Nigeria”.
