We Are Not A Terrorists Group – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday downplayed the declaration by the Defence Headquarters, that the group is a “militant terrorist organisation”.

Prince Kanu, younger brother of the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, in a phone interview with the Channels Television, said the group is a non-violent movement and that it has never carried arms or killed anyone.

The Defence Headquarters on Friday branded the IPOB as a “militant terrorist organisation’’ and urged parents to dissuade their wards from joining the group.

But the group said they are nothing near to becoming a terrorist group.

“It is very, very laughable that that is coming from a military intelligence officer,”

 “One, IPOB is a non-violent movement. We do not carry arms. We’ve never asked anyone to kill for us, neither have we killed anyone.
 “If you look at our records, our records are clean and straight.

“From inception, Nnamdi Kanu made it clear to the whole world that we are non-violent freedom fighters, and that is the way it has been.”
