The IPOB Customary Government of Biafra has broken its silence regarding the ongoing media war between the different camps of the Biafran struggle.
Jungle Journalist Media Limited gathered that the Customary Government is established under the guidance of the Supreme Council of Elders of the Indigenous People of Biafra, and runs a Customary Government on behalf of Biafran indigenes in Nigeria.
The Statement which is signed by the Vision Bearer of the original IPOB, Barrister Emeka Emekesiri is reproduced here in full:
“We have noted the ongoing social media war and attacks between various factions in the Biafra Struggle who are not under the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra. There have been accusations and counter accusations among those factions touching upon some issues of criminal responsibilities and civil liabilities.
“We condemn these unhealthy rivalries among the factions. Unfortunately, we are unable to help in making peace among them because they are not subjects of the Customary Government Administration under the supervision of the Elders of Biafraland.
“Consequently, we hereby advise, instruct and direct all the indigenes of Biafra under the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra to refrain from making any comments whether for or against any of the warring factions. You are advised to be focused on our VISION and MISSION without any distractions.
“Please ensure that you attend the Town Hall Meetings of the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra wherever you reside and participate fully in their activities. Other information shall be given to you at the Meeting.
“The Customary Government has given approval for the Biafrans who live abroad or outside their States of Origin to put their names in the Registers of their States of Origin as well as their States of Residence. The Biafrans who believe in politics are advised to contact the MOBIN Directors in their Secretariat on +2347068031176, +2348181830307, +2348032620750,
+2348036853927 +2348035798085 or +2348063641413 for assistance.
“If you need any further information on the activities of the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra, you can send your questions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall get back to you. Please be guided accordingly.
