The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Tuesday said that its supporters “home and abroad remain the source of our sponsorship”.
This was made known in a statement by its Publicity Secretary who has the pseudonym, Emma Powerful.
“For the umpteenth time, no single individual can sponsor Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). We are a global movement and millions of our family members home and abroad remain the source of our sponsorship.
“We have never hidden this fact because we are not a secret or terror organisation. IPOB is well grounded and we don’t need any Okorocha, Uche Nwosu or Hope Uzodinma or any politician for that matter to sponsor us. We have no dealings with corrupt politicians and people with questionable source of wealth,” IPOB said.
However, on the arrest of the Imo state 2019 governorship candidate of the Action Alliance, AA, Uche Nwosu at St Peter’s Anglican Church on Sunday, the group condemned the incident, saying that “It’s now transparently obvious to all who the masterminds of the abductions/ killings of many traditional rulers and religious leaders including politicians in Imo State and other parts of South East are.
“It is also now clear who created unknown gunmen to demonise and implicate IPOB and ESN operatives. God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama who designed this fight for Biafra freedom and independence has always vindicated us and will continue to vindicate IPOB/ESN.”
