Those piloting government in exile in the USA are not IPOB members, and they don’t mean well for Biafra freedom and restoration
By Valentine Amanze
The Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised alarm over plot by some individuals in U.S.A to form “Biafra Government in Exile” and float a currency to back it up, stressing that they are not its members; but swindlers.
Condemning the plot through a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB insisted that it was not part of the “kangaroo” Biafra government in exile.

IPOB also exonerated itself from the plot to print Biafra currency, stamps, and other important state documents, stressing, “We are not yet a sovereign nation.
“If we print currencies now, where will it be used as a legal tender?
“IPOB won’t be cajoled into embarking on premature state endeavours.
“Those wild-goose chasers talking about the printing of Biafra currency with their faces on the currency are daydreamers.”
It further said that there were no factions in IPOB. “We do not have any link with autopilot groups.
“Any group operating in whatever name or disguise outside IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the Directorate of State (DOS) is on its own.
“We warn all and sundry to cease and desist from using the name of IPOB, ESN, M-Branch, or Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in their name or in any operation that they carry out.”
It said that those behind the “shambolic” Radio Biafra government in exile in the USA were not IPOB members, advising them to desist from linking themselves to IPOB.
“They are politicians and not non-violent freedom fighting movement like IPOB.”
