BREAKING! Press Statement From The Office Of The Biafra Spokesperson – The Indigenous People Of Biafra [IPOB] 14/10/2022


Our attention has been drawn to the misleading analysis published by the Premium times on 9th of October 2022, titled, ‘Can Peter Obi’s victory in 2023 presidential election end Biafra Agitation’.


In that publication, the premium times tried to position IPOB as a mere political pressure group & Biafra Agitation as a mere pressure emanating from the decades of marginalisation of Ndigbo in Nigeria as they claim. They went ahead to say that IPOB is factional; one headed by Mazị Nnamdi Kanu and one headed by someone they identified as a Nigerian Finnish Citizen, Simon Ekpa. 

They also said that our Servant leader Mazị Nnamdi Kanu was a staunch supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan’s presidential bid before he lost to his predecessor General Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. All these statements are big fallacies and highly misleading just to clement their nonfactual claims that the Biafra Struggle is a struggle for political belonging and end of marginalisation of Ndigbo in Nigeria.


It is a work of a continuous poor media propaganda to narrow the name BIAFRA to the South-East or Igbos alone and refer to the Biafra liberations struggle as an agitating group that supports a Nigerian political candidate with the hope of redeeming the region from endless marginalisation. 

As earlier stated, Biafra encompasses the Igala, the lower Benue and the Old Eastern Region, which is South-East and South-South and no level of divide and conquer tactics for such a narrative of referring to Biafra as Igbos or South-East alone to sell anymore.

 Any social-cultural group that is therefore lamenting over marginalisation, Igbo presidency or yearning for a sense of belonging in the Nigerian project cannot be linked in any shape to IPOB or the collective voice of the Biafran people.

Anything that has Nigeria attached to it in any nomenclature is a threat to the Biafrans and we forbid it totally.


*Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never liked or supported Goodluck Jonathan politically. His calls for election boycotts in Biafraland, started in 2014 and he has severally in his Radio Biafra Broadcasts lashed out at GEJ for being too weak to his liking in serving the Fulani. There was never a time that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu supported Goodluck, or PDP as alleged in the premium times publication. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Called for Election boycott in 2015 and never supported anybody.

*We never said we are going to disrupt Nigerian elections in the Southeast, in 2023. Rather we said we are going to stop any further sham elections from holding in Biafraland as a whole, in 2023 and no one can dispute that. 

*Mazi Simon Ekpa is not a Nigerian and There is no faction in IPOB. Biafrans only expelled the faceless criminals who are employed by the politicians to turn IPOB into a political pressure group in the absence of our Servant leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The defunct DOS criminals are the ones making it look as if IPOB has factions. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the only IPOB leader and Mazi Simon Ekpa is the only legitimate Biafra Spokesperson till Mazi Nnamdi Kanu returns. 

*The agitation for the restoration of Biafra is in no way a struggle to gain political relevance in Nigeria or end the marginalization of the southeast as claimed by the premium times. 

Our struggle to restore Biafra is to save our common values as a people, culture and most importantly, a fight for survival as a race. Do not let anybody deceive you that a president of Igbo extraction is going to end the Struggle for Biafra. Never.


Peter Obi is a Biafran who has because of greed and avarice presented himself as only but a politically willing tool of distraction to the Biafrans dreadful and tensioned quest for outright freedom from Nigeria by 2023. 

It is no longer news that Peter Obi is on double contract. First, by Britain and secondly by the Northern Fulani sultanate caliphate to help quell the extremely heated liberation phase of the Biafra struggle, and create a room for Nigeria’s political relevance on Biafra soil once again by luring the people of Biafra into participating in Nigeria’s fraudulent election and thereby  renewing the slavery of the people who all they need is absolute freedom from Nigeria.

Biafrans will never tolerate such.

We want the British and their Nigerian Government of Fulani to understand that their political strategy against the Biafrans by picking one among the people to serve the interest of the neo-colonial British and Fulani is over. Not even Peter Obi’s presidential bid can reverse the collective resolve of the Biafran people. 

Our eternal leader Odumegwu Ojukwu said to General Yakubu Gowon; “ON ABURI I STAND” the same way we are saying today that there shall be no 2023 election in Biafraland and upon it we stand.

We are aware that Peter Obi represents the interest of both the British and Nigeria and we do not care about him and the one Nigerianists who supports him, his activities should end in Nigeria and never dabble into Biafra for any reason under the sun.


Biafra is exiting Nigeria in 2023 and as you make electioneering your target, so is freedom our target and we would break Nigeria up and set the route for other ethnic nationalities locked down in Nigeria to emerge. Biafra would take the lead.

We are exiting Nigeria to prevent the extinction of our race as a people, to have the chance to live and develop as humans, to preserve our heritage and give a great future to the unborn generations. 

We are Biafrans! We are neither moved by threats nor actions of our enemies against us. We do not offer any room for whatsoever reason to debate our freedom with anyone of any shade, color or continent and we are unperturbed by propaganda.

All we want is Biafra and only Biafra we will achieve in 2023.
