The indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) has lauded the move of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party for extending a VIP invitation to their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to Trump’s campaign rally which took place at Des Moines Iowa on Thursday January 30, 2020.
In a statement published by Vanguard News on Monday, the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, disclosed that it’s leader who has been labelled as a terrorist by the Nigerian government, got invited to a rally which was attended by the President of the United States of America.
According to the group, the move is a slap on the face of the Nigerian government and assured it’s members of the reality Biafra.
The statement said;
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to appreciate the leadership of the US Republicans Party in Iowa for their invitation to our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a special guest at Trump campaign rally on Des Moines Iowa on Thursday, January 30, 2020.
“Our leader was granted entry to the VIP section of the arena reserved for the top echelon of the Republican Party in the state including the Iowa State Governor Kim Reynolds whom he met briefly.
“It is ironic that a man injuriously labelled a terrorist by a biased, corrupt, discredited and dysfunctional judiciary in Nigeria is being accorded VIP status in an event attended by the president of the United States of America whereas Nigeria has been placed on a list of terror ravaged countries banned from entering the US. What this proves is that rulers of Nigeria are the real terrorists.
“Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra (DOS) are working very hard and round the clock with stakeholders and most powerful countries in the world to ensure that Biafra is restored peacefully and as soon as possible.
“The Nigeria Government, South East governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo led by John Nnia Nwodo that proscribed and tagged IPOB terrorists can now see that IPOB momentum is unstoppable and Biafra restoration inevitable.
“We are calling on every Biafran both at home and abroad, particularly the IPOB family worldwide, to remain strong and determined because we are nearly there.
“No mortal born of a woman can stop Biafra from coming or the freedom that will bring for all other trapped nationalities in Nigeria.
“Our freedom is ordained from the most high God in heaven. The success of our ongoing global engagement and diplomatic strangulation of Nigeria will set all captives free.”
