Recall that TRIPOB had recently announced its breakaway from the pro-Biafra group, saying IPOB under Kanu was too rigid and negative.
The breakaway group had also expressed its readiness to negotiate with the Federal Government.
However, IPOB, in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, described as “laughable” the claims by the splinter group.
The frontline pro-Biafra group alleged that the Federal Government fabricated the story of the splinter group to create the impression that there is a crack in the camp of IPOB.
Insisting that there is no division within the ranks of IPOB, Emma Powerful stressed that the battle for Biafra continues.
According to the statement, IPOB said the Federal Government will surely fail in its bid to deceive those who believe in the Biafra struggle.
The statement reads, “The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, worldwide under the leadership of the prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has laughed at the new emerged group called TRIPOB and the government of Nigeria and it’s security agencies on their moves to deceive the general public. It’s unfortunate that government cannot tell their citizens the simple truth.
“It is quite amusing, effort being made by the DSS to create the impression that their recent laughable creation is a faction of the great, indefatigable IPOB, is a confirmation that the two daura gentlemen, (one in Aso Rock Villa and the other at the DSS) have finally ran into a cul de sac.
“They have clearly run out of ideas. They are at their wits end, their stubborn refusal to let our people go has landed them in a tight corner, and their attempt to create a DSS-sponsored faction is a proof that they don’t know what else to do. We will not dignify their latest attempt with a response. We merely join citizens of the world as they laugh their hearts out. With this misadventure, the APC, FG and the security agents have even lost their would be convert…we Laugh.
“They failed in their attempt to use so called MEND and their own creation, Reformed Avengers to cause spilt in the Niger Delta Struggle. Resorting to the same idea here, simply confirms that they are confused, frustrated and defeated.
“We wonder what they will do next as this latest antics will surely pop like a ballon. At least they should have advised this TRIPOLI_LIBYA ORGANIZATION TO PRETEND TO BE FOR BIAFRA RESTORATION INSTEAD OF TELLING THEM TO PLEDGE LOYALTY FOR THE CONTRAPTION CALLED NIGERIA.
“The power of truth has set the oppressors running helter shelter. As all pass leaders frantically troop to the Villa daily to deliver grave warnings privately, the oppressor defiantly refuses to do the needful. This last ditch effort to create a false impression of division amongst our ranks has already failed, like all other unintelligent antics before it.
“We advise the DSS to do better, next time. Their very poorly scripted plots always expose the I.Q level of the people in charge there.
“We are unstoppable and divinely ordained. Horrific killings, like the Zamfara Polytechnic arson two days ago, confirm to the world that we do not belong together. The childish attempts to deceive the public, only confirms that the oppressor is confused.”
