IPOB Hits Back at Asari Dokubo For Insulting Nnamdi Kanu
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has defended his leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu oer the comment made by ex-leader of Niger-Delta militants, Asari Dokubo.
IPOB deputy leader, Uche Mefor, in a statement yesterday said the pro-Biafra group does not need Dokubo’s ‘lectures’ on how to achieve its goals.
Nnamdi Kanu had earlier ordered IPOB supporters in the two geopolitical zones of south east and south south to boycott the 2019 general elections.
However, Asari Dokubo was disappointed over the call to ignore of the 2019 general elections by Nnamdi Kanu.
Replying to the ex-militants statement, Uche said, : “Whether Catalonia, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Hamas, used election to control their territories or not, that is their business. Their examples are incongruent and serves no purpose in our circumstance as it stands. On our part, IPOB has taken a decision to use civil disobedience manifesting in so many ways including election boycott and that we must do.
“We do not believe in the recalibration nor extinguishing of our averred principles on the altar of political expediency and certainly, don’t need any lectures on what or how to go about the path we have chosen.
“Hamas started by fighting wars, IRA started by fighting wars and same with Catalonia and even Scotland and these violences gave rise to their attaining political statuses they have today. Why then are those who claim to be Biafra freedom fighters not fighting like Hamas, IRA, etc if citing them is a standard?”
