The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has berated Governors Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State and Willie Obiano of Anambra State for trying to stand on their way during its May 30 sit-at-home order.
The pro-Biafra group, however, commended seven governors in the South-east and South-south for not coming out to attack its members like their two counterparts did as they observed the sit-at-home order across the states in the regions.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, who made this known in a statement issued at the weekend said: “We appreciate the fact that some governors such as Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Rochas Okorocha, Nyesom Wike, Ifeanyi Okowa, Seriake Dickson, Udom Emmanuel and Ben Ayade did not belittle their offices by coming out to act as attack dogs for Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) as Umahi and Obiano did. Powerful, who thanked “the people of Biafra” for the successful sit-at-home order, said that it was declared to honour the fallen heroes of the civil war and those who died in the cause of the struggle for the restoration of a Biafra state.
Expressing the group’s gratitude to all ‘Biafrans,’ he said that “this year’s event had resounding success across Biafraland and all over the world despite all odds and machinations of the enemy. He said that the success of the order would “go down in the annals of history as a confirmation that IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was exceptionally indefatigable and the dominant force across the entire East not just in Igboland.”
Powerful said that the order was a confirmation that the vast majority of the people were with IPOB and remained committed to its collective pursuit for self-determination for all.So, as Asaba, Owerri, Enugu, Igweocha, Aba, Onitsha, and all Biafraland sat at home this 30th May 2018, we are emboldened that, like in South Africa and Kenya, it is only a matter of time before IPOB prevail and lead our people to freedom. It is a duty we owe to the dead, ourselves and posterity.But like Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu once said ‘Biafra is of the mind’, so no one can kill or suppress it. How could anyone ever believe that it is possible to prevent us from remembering and honouring our dead, our maimed, our persecuted?
These were the very first words that, in 1967, brought into being that great nation of Biafra, inspired by the indomitable will of a people to resist evil, to resist genocide, and in defense of liberty. It was an epoch in the lives of Biafrans of that generation and like no other place in history, they stood shoulder to shoulder to defend their lives, their land and their freedom. Many paid the supreme sacrifice. So, it lies within our rights and conscience to never forget.

IPOB is the frontline group fighting for an Independent State of Biafra from Nigeria with presence in about 88 countries of the world. IPOB is led by Nnamdi Kanu.
