Our attention has been drawn to the press release making round the Nigerian media  which claims to be from one non-existent Igbo Community Group in Finland. It was signed by one Mr. Kingsley Orji who claimed that they have disassociated themselves from Mazi Simon Ekpa and his Campaigns for the freedom of  “The Biafran People”. 

It has been proved beyond reasonable doubts that the major strategy that the people that operate on the corrupt system of Nigeria, have always employed to push Biafra into submission is by creating fake and non-existent groups to be used through their brown-envelope media houses to push lies, blackmails and Propaganda against the Biafran People. 

It also happens to be that, in several communities, some people have decided to lose their fatherhood, brotherhood, sisterhood just to make a point in order to satisfy the will of the enemy for money and other material things for them and their children alone, not minding whether other people around them will survive or not. Very very sad indeed!

When we came across the misleading statement from the shameless coward  -the so-called Mr. Kingsley Orji, who couldn’t gather the courage as a man that he claims, to use his real image and his ganged-up Nigerian political errand boys. As a result of the resultant mess, the IPOB in Finland has decided to release a  communique that :

1) There is no existing group whatsoever known as the ‘Igbo community in Finland’ that converged a meeting on the 18th of December 2022 as claimed in the misleading press statement from the so-called Mr. Kingsley Orji whom who’s picture is attached herein for proper identification for those who wish to know him. His dirty tricks were aided and  abated by some unreliable media houses in Nigeria. Setting the fact straight,

what we have in Finland is autonomous Igbo Union sub-groups, which Mazi Simon Ekpa was once the Chairman of the Igbo Union Finland for 4years from 2015 to 2019, the same group Kingsley Orji parade himself as Chairman with less than 20 members since almost all Igbos people in Finland are now active Biafra agitators or sympathisers.

2)There was a gathering of Igbo individuals in Finland on the 18th of December with Mazi Simon Ekpa in attendance. He objectively answered  all questions asked  him by individuals concerning the “No Election-In-Biafraland” stance by the overwhelming number of the Biafran people. The meeting ended with no resolution; and was strickly agreed earlier that no information about the meeting must make it to the public. However, this agreement was violated as we suddenly started hearing misleading claims of the “non-existent Igbo Community in Finland with no logo”! This was a meeting that many of us attended in a closed door; 

3) The Vanguard News Paper and Sahara Reporters were very biased in their reportage of the press statement from the non-existent Igbo group just to mislead the general public. A simple call to Igbo individuals in Finland or a publication of the logo of the so-called Igbo Community group, would have gone a long way in dismantling those bogus lies and deception; and 

4) Mazi Simon Ekpa is not representing or speaking for Ndigbo as a tribe in Nigeria, but he is representing Biafra and speaks for the Biafran People in general which Ndigbo and other tribes are part of.

5) IPOB Finland has ordered the release of the Zoom meeting held on the 17th of December 2022 and also the subsequent release of the audio recording of the meeting on the 18th of December 2022, they will be released to the public today.

On the whole, IPOB is the only group that connects and represents every Biafran ethnicity like:  Igbo, Ijaw, Ibibio, Uhrobo, Idoma, Itshekiri, Igede and so on, in Finland, as one people with common values.

So, on behalf of IPOB Finland, we are authoritatively making it clear that anyone that has come across the “disingenuous press release”  -full of lies, blackmails and propaganda from the so-called Mr. Kingsley Orji, should disregard it. 

Our call for Independence is irreversible and cannot be thwarted by those “men without spine”. They should “speak clearly” to the enemy at the gate, not serving their stomachs at all times.

Freedom fighting is not a pity party. While the meeting was going on, one Mr. Obi Caleb Uchechukwu (Obi-West) was taking minutes of the meeting and have collaborated with Kinglsey Orji who issued one greedy man’s resolution, it should vehemently be disregarded as he has no authority to speak on behalf of Igbo people how much more for Biafrans, in general.

Mazi Simon Ekpa is not doing anything on his own volition as a Biafran but he’s doing things as he was sent by Chukwuokike Abiama and millions of Biafrans as one indivisible people. 

Our target and only resolution remains the total restoration of Biafra, and we are fully behind Mazi Simon Ekpa. He has the mandate to continue to speak for us against the overwhelming injustices and the continuous persecutions of our people in Nigeria.

Signed By:

Mazi Clement Anyaegbu
