Warns Miyetti Allah against linking Obi-dient movt to group

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the leadership of detained Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has declared that it has no interest in legitimising the flawed political system in the country.

The separatist group, therefore, warned one Saleh Alhassan of Miyetti Allah to stop linking the obi-dient movement to IPOB.

The group cautioned Miyyeti Allah should face its political opponent and stop linking Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, with IPOB agitation.

In a statement, the Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, said IPOB knows that these terrorists masquerading as cattle herders, linking Obi with IPOB and Biafra agitation, are doing so because of their hatred against Igbo and their fear for Biafra.

The statement reads: “The attention of IPOB has been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful statement credited to one Saleh Alhassan of Miyetti Allah, linking the Obi-dient movement to IPOB.

“Miyetti Allah is not well informed to know that IPOB does not engage in seasonal jamboree and selection process called Nigerian election.

“IPOB can not drag its reputation to the mud of the farce called Nigerian politics. We have no interest to legitimise the Nigerian flawed political system by coming down to the level of their crooked and retarded political aberration. Obi is involved in and playing the dirty Nigerian politics while we in IPOB play advanced internationally accepted politics, targeting Biafra Referendum.

“If Obi believed in what we are pursuing, he wouldn’t have come out, in the first place, to contest for Nigeria’s president.”
