Nigerian Govt Reveals Identity Of IPOB Sponsors

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Sunday accused “politically disgruntled treasury looters” out to sabotage the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government of sponsoring the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.




Mohammed said the disgruntled looters are using IPOB to sabotage the current government under the guise of fighting for the rights of the people of the South-east.

This is contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi and sent to DAILY POST.

Mohammed said IPOB sponsors were trying to “destabilize the country and trigger chaos to realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”

“Nigerians must understand that IPOB was not set up to fight for the right of anyone or group, but as a tool to destabilize the nation, divert attention from the efforts of the Buhari Administration and obliterate the laudable achievements of the Government.

”IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the Politically Disgruntled and the Treasury Looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”



Wondering why IPOB activities became heightened under Buhari’s government, Mohammed said, ”If this is coincidental, then that coincidence is uncanny, at the least. Remember that Nnamdi Kanu, who led a protest at the Nigeria House in London against Boko Haram insurgency and in support of Nigeria’s unity, under the Jonathan Administration, has suddenly metamorphosed into an IPOB monster who will rather set the nation ablaze.”

Mohammed said IPOB thrived on exploiting the nation’s fault lines, and that its modus operandi ”is to trigger conflagration nationwide through attacks and reprisals”.

”Thankfully, IPOB has failed in its evil machinations. The good people of Nigeria have seen beyond those cheap tactics and have avoided being incited against one another. We must remain vigilant and resolute. We must all say no to the incendiary and divisive tendencies of IPOB and its cohorts.”

Mohammed also commended the Nigerian military for labelling IPOB a terrorist organization and for checkmating the group, and the South-east Governors for proscribing the organization.



”But for the military’s quick and decisive intervention, IPOB could have set the nation on fire. Thanks to the decisiveness of the military, the Governors of the states in the South-east have wisely proscribed IPOB,” he said.

Alhaji Mohammed accused IPOB of harvesting gory videos from the distant past and from other lands to deceive the international community that the people of the South-east are victims of state-sponsored ethno-sectarian violence, describing such tactics as ”lies and propaganda”.

”Such videos, which have very high emotive quotient, are circulating on the Social Media. We call on all to subject such videos to the greatest scrutiny so as not to be misled. In particular, we urge the international community not to jump to any conclusion on the basis of such videos,” he said.

The Minister also appealed to the media to show greater restraint and avoid sensationalism in their reporting of the military exercise, Operation Python Dance II, in the South-east.

Mohammed added that the Nigerian media cannot afford to sit on the fence or engage in irresponsible journalism when the issue at stake is the very survival of the nation.


”The divisive and jaundiced opinions of some anarchists have been given a big play by a section of the media. This is wrong. Let me remind all of us of the role of the media, especially the radio, in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda that left about 800,000 people dead,” he added.

Such a foolish way of reasoning what had ipob got to do with the last government? This man sounds foolish always and has nothing good to offer.

You are just as foolish as Lai, this has nothing to do with the last government.

DON™ said...

It's the losers from last administration that's sponsoring ipob, Annon you are the fool here.

DON™ said...

Igbo never voted for Buhari, that's why they want this administration to fail. Where was Kanu when Jonathan Was The president of this country?

DON™ said...

I know it's the losers from the last government that are trying to disrupt the peace in the south east.
Kanu is a pawn in the hand of Jonathan sympathisers and some pdp sore losers.
People like that lunatic ffk and fayose.
This government will not hesitate to send them all to jail soonest. They all don't mean well for Nigerians, the earlier the gullible ones know and channel their engery somewhere

Aurora said...

And the Minister of Information, keeps goofing anytime he speaks. I wonder if he read this statement throughly, before he asked for its release.

Anonymous said...

It has a lot to do with the last government. Not everybody is as foolish and daft as you agitators.

Anonymous said...

So if you can confirm the sponsors of IPOB could you also confirm the sponsors of BOKO Haram? You organise amnesty for boko haram but did operation python for defenceless people from the SE.

I m sorry but most times ur post/quotes aren't related to the topic and it is a bit distracting. No offence pls.

Don, everyone must not vote for one candidate. That is why it's politics. Different parties with their own candidates and supporters. And don't forget that APC also got some votes from the South East even if the votes were not much.

On the other hand, you can't compare Jonathan's regime with Buhari's own. Jonathan ran an all-inclusive government. He didn't discriminate. Buhari has shown his discrimination with his appointments and ways he has addressed certain issues in the country. If you are ruling a country with diverse ethnic groups (like Nigeria), you have to put everyone into consideration and not act like it's only people from your own zone that matter. Has Buhari visited any South Eastern state since his two years plus in office?

We knew truth sir long before now. They couldn't believe their fifty years plan of looting the nation treasury is over and they are too scared to be investigated by this government. We shall overcome thisI IPOB issue igba di e loku.

You accept evil and evil shall also fall on you.on the other post you claimed GEJ killed this country and a barrel of crude was $100 in his time.so Nigeria was doing great before GEJ came into power?na for GEJ time we started having power issue and all the bad things. A barrel of crude was $100 and a liter of fuel was 87naira,now a barrel is $50 and a liter is 145 naira. So mr Dons plz explain o!

Coward talk!! You guys should leave Biafra alone and deal with your recession. Cowards decide to remain slaves under Fulani. Cowards eat crumbs from the useless dirty table of Fulani. Cowards shout 'one Nigeria' because they have slave mentality. Cowards are okay with the way Nigeria is because they are limited by the level of people who lead them. Rulers who can't measure up to their international counterparts. Cowards in a zoo country, ruled by a zombie soldier.

I can't join and follow a person I don't know, and haven't seen what achievement or plans he has for the igbo people, Do you even understand what the agitation is costing?? Making our young men close their works and come out and fight a well armed government with sticks and machete while they are killed??(and he flees,?? If that his plan and the irrational Biafra he intends building, then I curse him and his plans.If he has a sincere agenda and heart,this is not a fight of our young men and women! Let him go meet the heads and the pillars of each state, there are the ones for the fight if they sense is a good fight! We have been killed enough! Igbo ozoemena!

EESAH (Mr Nobody) said...

True, where was Nnamdi Kanu when Jona ruled for 7 years. There was little or no agitation. In fact, he was even canvassing for one Nigeria then. Then Buhari comes in and they realize that they have been margin for a inalized. That's to show you that politicians hijacked Ipob and are their sponsors

Issorai said...

Nnamdi Kanu had been agitating for Biafra all through Jonathan's regime but he was ignored and treated like a nonentity. This made him irrelevant and largely unknown outside the SE. It was when Buhari came into power and arrested him that he shot into the limelight.
That we don't support what Nnamdi Kanu is doing doesn't mean one should swallow the governments propaganda. And to think this is coming from the chief of lies himself, Liar Mohammed.
