IPOB salutes Southwest elders for condemning military operation in Southeast

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended the apex Yoruba socio-cultural group Afenifere, Yoruba Elders’ Council for speaking out against the recent launch of a military operation in the south eastern zone of the country tagged, operation Python dance 11.

IPOB said it had noted that it was a clear testimony that there still abounded good men in the zone.

A press release signed by the media and publicity secretary of IPOB, Mr Emma Powerful thanked groups and individuals from the zone for condemning the invasion of the zone by military men in a manner he described as overwhelming tide of tyrannical oppression and genocide against the people of Biafra.

Part of the release stated, “You rose up to condemn evil and their well oiled propaganda machinery that sought to turn truth upside down and make us believe that light is now darkness and darkness light.

“Your collective and individual condemnation of the evil Python Dance II, staged by the Buhari regime to suppress legitimate agitation for freedom through intimidation, slaughter of the innocent and military occupation has earned you an enduring legacy which history will never forget.”

The group described as rare courage and forthrightness by the south western groups in coming forth to speak up in defence of freedom of speech, expression and association, while commending them for rejecting the tag of terrorist organisation on it.

The group stated further that, “We also commend those men and women of good conscience from across all ethnic divides in Nigeria and across the globe that condemned the genocidal campaign of this Buhari regime against innocent civilian populations across Biafraland.

“With this public display of courage, we are hopeful that many more courageous men and women across West Africa and Africa in general will rise up against this APC tyranny and oppression in black Africa as other races have managed to do.”

The group said it will remain steadfast and committed to the pursuit of the finest ideals of liberation to set free all oppressed and marginalised people in Nigeria and beyond.
