How we’ll relate with Trump - IPOB reveals


As Donald Trump is sworn in today as the 45th President of the United States of America, indications emerged yesterday that Nigeria’s separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), will explore every available opportunity to present its demand for self-determination.

Co-founder of Radio Biafra, Dr. Chukwuma Egemba told newsmen that the group would not say it had any form of relationship with Trump because he was yet to be sworn-in.


However, the United Kingdom-based Biafra campaigner said the group would have relationship with him just as they had with other governments of the world, adding that IPOB will present its case to him once he settled down.

“When he takes office and settles down, then, I am quite sure the issue of Biafra will be one of the things that will be handed to him; that he will inherit or will come to find out. Of course, Biafra people will present their case to him directly. I will not say we have relationship with him directly because he is not yet the US president,” Egemba stated.

He expressed happiness with the level of attention Biafra agitation had received from leading countries of the world, adding that the awareness so far generated by IPOB and other groups in the Biafra movement globally can no longer be wished away.


Egemba, who paid a solidarity visit to detained IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu at Kuje prison, said the group had adopted diplomatic and political approaches in pursuing their objective.

“We have representation and doing representation to various governments of the world; to major governmental centres, to governments and political organisations that matter. We have been doing inroad to AU, UN; there is hardly any foreign government that does not know that Biafra exists, that Biafran people through IPOB and other organisations are fighting for their freedom. They are seeing what we are doing so far; what is happening and at the right time, they will come out to prove that they know what is happening,” he stated.
