The leadership of the group who lauded the governors in a statement signed by its Media and publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful said that “The huge success recorded in the sit-at-home order has further demonstrated that with unity we can actualise Biafra sooner than expected.
We therefore encourage all Biafrans to remain resolute in our struggle for self determination which is our fundamental right”.
For this reason it “very warmly commend Biafrans, South East Governors, Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa, friends and lovers of Biafra freedom who made the exercise a huge success”.
It said the unprecedented success and total compliance that greeted the exercise have sent panic waves down the spine of the oppressors and that it is only now that they understood how prepared IPOB are in its irrevocable resolve to restore Biafra republic.
It added: “We immensely thank the people of Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers, Anambra, Abia, Delta, Imo, Edo, Rivers, Bayelsa, and Kogi States as well as Igbanke, Idoma and Igede people for being part of the success story.
We equally extend our appreciation to our brothers and sisters in Ambazonia for their wonderful support.
We cannot thank the Biafran Diaspora community for their inestimable contributions in our struggle for independence. Biafrans in the Diaspora did us proud on Sunday, May 30 when they trooped out in their thousands to celebrate the Biafra Day in their respective host countries. We are very proud of you all”.
The group also thanked the God of Abraham for making the exercise peaceful and hitch-free adding that they are peace lovers and will continue to push for their freedom peacefully.
It said it is not a crime to remember over five million Biafrans who died in the civil war as well as in its struggle for liberation.
It boasted that very soon the stage will be set for referendum to decide their fate and that the oppressors are already jittery because they know what is coming.
It’s already very clear to them that they can no longer stop the birth of our new nation”, it added, concluding that: “It’s now clear to all that the zoo has collapsed beyond redemption. Very soon all the subjugated indigenous tribes in the contraption will be set free”
