The Indigenous People Of Biafra, Has Urged United States President,Joe Biden, Not To Honour The Request Of The President.
The Indigenous People of Biafra, has urged United States President, Joe Biden, not to honour the request of the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to assist Nigeria with its military and weapons.
In a letter titled, “Re: request for United States military assistance by President Mohammadu Buhari of Nigeria”, signed by the IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, which was made available to The PUNCH on Saturday evening, the outlawed group claimed Buhari had made Nigeria the most dangerous country, especially those of the former Republic of Biafra.
The letter read, “We, the Indigenous People of Biafra applaud your election as President of the United States, the most powerful office in the history of the world. We salute your adept and muscular discharge of presidential duties during your tenure in the White House.
“Mr President, as you consider Buhari’s request for military assistance to Nigeria, we respectfully urge you to also consider the following:
“Buhari has arbitrarily branded and terrorised the Indigenous People of Biafra, a nonviolent group pursuing the Independence of the former Republic of Biafra. Mr Buhari’s draconian measures were geared to retaliating against peaceful demonstrations favoring the restoration of Biafran independence that was cruelly extinguished by a genocidal military campaign Buhari partly led between 1967 and 1970.
“He has concocted treason charges against IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu to crush Biafran self-determination, despite the fact that self-determination is legal under Nigerian law.
“We respectfully suggest that you consider, among other things, denying weapons sales or transfers to Nigeria under the Leahy Amendment; listing Nigeria complicit in persecuting Christian and Jews under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act.
