The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed that it was not a terror organization contrary to the position of government.
IPOB faulted presidential spokesperson, Mallam Garba Shehu, who was said to have urged the international community to declare IPOB a terror group.
The group said the world did not need to be told who terrorists were as they already knew them.
IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday urged Shehu to support the international advocacy for a referendum.
“The world does not need to be told who terrorists are because they already know them. The world knows that IPOB is for freedom of Biafra.
“IPOB operates in over 100 different countries and they know what IPOB stands for. None of those countries has ever declared as terrorists. Garba Shehu’s cries cannot change their conviction about IPOB.
“Garba Shehu should instead, call Western powers to help organize a referendum for Indigenous Peoples in Nigeria to decide where they want to be, whether in Nigeria or standing on their own.”
