The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied calling for protest in the Southeast even as it maintained that no amount of blackmail or threats will make the group lose focus on the restoration of Biafra.

Spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful who disclosed this in a statement he released to newsmen on Monday also distanced itself from some names of hoodlums wanted by the Enugu State government.

According to Powerful, those names listed by governor Peter Mba are not members of IPOB.

He said “IPOB did not call for protest in any part of the Southeast. Nevertheless, whether rumors of protest or not, IPOB won’t succumb to any blackmail or threat.


”IPOB is focused on the restoration of Biafra Independence as a sovereign nation and is not against or after any governor and we are not interested in their political blackmail and propaganda”.

Some of the names of the hoodlums listed by the governor are : Mazi Sunday Obodo, Mazi Destiny Okoye, Mazi Chukwura Okey, Mazi Emeka Onu, Mazi Friday Egwu, Mazi Orji Ndu, Mazi Stephen Madu and Mazi Buchi Eze.

”For clearity and record purpose these Peter Mba linked to IPOB are not IPOB members and the movement never seen these Peter Mba thugs as IPOB members, so Peter Mba you must stop mentioning them as IPOB members IPOB doesn’t engage criminals.
