The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has described insinuations from the Ijaw National Council (INC), that the group has already drawn up a map of the Biafran Republic, as “lie from the pit of hell,” meant to cause disaffection in the South-East.
IPOB, in a statement issued on Saturday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said the allegations were falsehood sponsored by enemies of the Biafran Nation “intended to set Biafrans against themselves” as the issue of a Biafran map should not generate any heat because “Biafrans know themselves.”
In the statement, Powerful said the incarcerated leader of the group, Nnamdi Kanu, did not draw up any map of Biafra, neither had he authorised nor commissioned anyone to do it.
“We are the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,” the statement reads.
“Our attention has been drawn to the blackmail being sponsored by our detractors that IPOB has drawn the Biafra map. We, therefore, want to debunk such fallacious narrative. We did not draw any Biafra map.
“We understand that some people in the coastal region of Biafra are misinformed and deceived with false information that IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu and Igbos have drawn the map of Biafra.
“It is false and intended to set us against ourselves. The issue of Biafra map should not generate any heat because we know ourselves
