In a recent move, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have vowed that no human being can stop the programme to mark the 50th anniversary of the creation of Biafra, slated to hold on Tuesday, May 30, across Igbo land.



The reaffirmation of the resolve of the two self-determination groups to go ahead with activities planned to mark Biafra Day came against the background of the order by the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris, directing his men to deal decisively with Biafra agitators.

The two groups in their separate reactions described the IGP’s directive as naive, primitive and unfortunate and held that all the security operatives in Nigeria put together would not be able to thwart the Biafra celebration.

Speaking to newmen, the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful said: “It is unfortunate that the IGP would give orders to his men to deal decisively with the freedom fighters on May 30 remembrance day and 50th year anniversary of Biafra declaration by Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu. He must have known that he cannot stop the sit-at-home and the 50 years remembrance anniversary."

"Is he going to stop it in 120 countries of the world where this will be observed?" he asked.
