September 15, 2017 – The Nigerian Army Names IPOB A Terrorists Organisation, Urges Parents To Warn Their Children Against Group

The Defence Headquarters on Friday branded the Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB ) as a “terror organisation’’ and urged parents to dissuade their wards from joining the group.

In a statement on Friday, the Director of Defence Information, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, restated the commitment of the armed forces to confront all security challenges facing the country.’

He said military would ensure the protection of lives and property in all parts of Nigeria.

The spokesman said IPOB posed a security challenge to the country and had been metamorphosing from one stage to another.

Enenche said: “After due professional analysis and recent developments, it has become expedient to notify the general public that the claim by IPOB actors that the organisation is non-violent is not true.

“Hence, the need to bring to public awareness the true and current state of IPOB.

“In this regard, some of their actions, clandestinely and actively, that have been terrorising the general public include:

“The formation of a Biafra Secret Service, claimed formation of Biafra National Guard, unauthorised blocking of public access roads and extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal road blocks.

“Militant possession and use of weapons (stones, molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles, among others) on a military patrol on September 10, 2017

“Physical confrontation of troops by Nnamdi Kanu and other Indigenous People of Biafra( IPOB ) actors at a check point on September 11, 2017 and also attempt to snatch their rifles.

“Attack by IPOB members on a military checkpoint on September 12, 2017, at Isialangwa, where one IPOB actor attempted to snatch a female soldier’s rifle.’

“From the foregoing, the Armed Forces of Nigeria wish to confirm to the general public that IPOB from all intent, plan and purpose as analysed, is a militant terrorist organisation.”

  2. JOKERS! YOU NAME IPOB a terror group, that is your skewed thinking. The world at large does not see them like that.

  3. Now that they labelled them terror group you all raged. They are terrorists. In your world, only Muslim are terrorists. IPOB is a judeo-christisn terrorist. What the world think is irrelevant.

    If a group tries to agitate for cessation in USA they will be considered a terror group or extremist group.

    • Amanda… your muslim jihadist group in the north carrying AK47s attacking innocent civilians unquestionably deserved to be called terrorist and not unarmed Igbo youths from the southeast peacefully calling for freedom. And mind you, there group of muslims alongside Christians calling for secession in the US state of California and they have never been called and will never be called terrorist because they are peaceful unlike your terrorist muslim brothers from the northern Nigeria terrorizing the peace of the country. So get it straight into your mind and heart that there is a stark different between IPOB and your terrorist muslim BOKO HARAM.

  4. This announcement by the Nigerian Army is extremely provocative and egregious. It is something that no doubt will markedly heighten tension in the country and it is unacceptable. The misuse of power by Buhari-led government is now dangerously edging to a new height. Blacklisting and leveling IPOB a terrorist organisation as if they are gun wielding BOKO HARAM only serve to notify the world of the regime’s repression, oppression, cruelty and despotism. If left unchecked by other arms of Government, the latest development could spill out of country and could degenerate to an arm race between the Nigerian army and the youths of the southeast further sending the country into a more chaotic war zone . I think It is high time the former rulers come together and quickly advice president Muhammadu Buhari to give a command that the Nigerian army retract there statement of calling IPOB a terrorist organisation and should immediately withdraw the army from there occupied base in the southeast. Rather than handling IPOB matter diplomatically, the president of the North has choosing the part of violent. This is highly regrettable.

  5. I am an Igbo man but I have to say to I support the Nigeria army 100%. Any group of people that tries to divide the country is a terror group and should be labeled a terrorist. Every tribe in Nigeria have mixed and have Offspring in all part of Nigeria so you fools that are calling for separation where do you want their children to go??? Thank you once again Nigeria army it’s about time!!!

  6. hahahaha Hausa s with their thinking how can you call 95% of Igbos terrorist you people are just mad can’t you see the reason of their agitation because u people reason backward holding NIG at ransom with your military brothers this is madness ok
