See why IPOB is asking the US not to sell weapons to Nigeria
There is news about the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
In a letter to United States of America government, IPOB asked that the country ignores President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for military assistance in Nigeria.
The letter revealed that Buhari asking for weapons were geared to retaliating against peaceful demonstrations favouring restoration of Biafra as the President has has terrorised the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The letter reads, “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.”
