New Biafra Group Emerges; Threatens to Denounce Biafra Agitation (READ)
A new group by the name "The Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIOPOB" has broken out of the main group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over alleged inflexible and defeatist position of IPOB led by Nnamdi Kanu, currently in detention.
“It was resolved that due to the rigid and fatalistic position of the Nnamdi Kanu- led IPOB, several of us with like minds shall breakaway and form The Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIPOB,” he stated.
“In view of this new mind-set, members of the TRIPOB and any new defectors will on October 1, 2016, make a public denunciation of a secessionist Biafra Republic at the Eagle Square, Abuja”
“The event will also include recitation of the pledge to Nigeria, our country, singing of the national anthem, followed by a solemn burning of the Biafra flag and unveiling a new Biafra flag representing pride, change, potential and spirit of the Igbo race which can thrive anywhere in the world.”
