The President of Ghana, H.E Nana Akufo Addo has been issued a strong warning by leaders of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB to stay away from their affairs.
IPOB is a separatist group in the South East of Nigeria that is clamoring for the independence of the Igbo States from Nigeria. IPOB has accused Ghanaian President, Nana Akufu Addo, of oppressing some members of the group who have taken refuge in Ghana.
The spokesman of the separatist group Emma Powerful issued a statement in response to the arrest of 82 IPOB members in Ghana who were holding a meeting.
Read the full statement below;
“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the arrest, intimidation, harassment and incessant torture and humiliation of Biafrans living in Ghana by Ghana government and its security agencies.
“It’s quite unfortunate that the Government of Ghana has made itself a willing accomplice to the oppressive Fulani -controlled Nigerian Government to suppress the agitation for Biafra restoration. But BIAFRA is irrepressible no matter how hard the enemies try!
“We still remember the role by Ghana during the genocidal war unleashed to the good people of Biafra between 1967 and 1970. IPOB has not forgotten how Ghana refused to help the children of Biafra during that war of annihilation by Nigeria Government supported by British authorities in their botched bid to annihilate Biafra from the surface of the earth.
“It is shameful and unfortunate that Ghana government and her security operatives could arrest Biafrans living in their country about 107 people in their monthly meeting, detained and deported 25 people of them to Nigeria and others were nowhere to found. Our family in Ghana were still looking for whereabouts of them, we are telling good people of Ghana to look for our people living in Ghana and produce them to Biafrans government or they ready for the consequences.
“We are looking for 82 citizens of Biafra in Ghana. Ghana arrested 2 years citizens of Biafra and detained her incommunicado for two weeks in Ghana prison yards without taken them to court.
“Recently Ghana government led by Nana Dankwa Akufua Ado and his security agencies renewed their hatred on the people of Biafra. Since 2019 till date Ghana government and her partners in crime have been clamping down on Biafra businesses in Ghana. This is sheer wickedness.
“We are calling on Ghanaians and friends of Ghana President to inform him that he should stop collaborating with the Fulani-controlled federal Government of Nigeria to oppress Biafra. We are keeping records. Nana Ado should not be allowed to make Ghana perpetual enemies of Biafra because of his selfish interest.”
