The pro-Biafra group made the statement while reiterating its determination to actualize the sovereign state of Biafra.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB insisted that no amount of arrests, killings, detentions, harassments, tortures, judicial extortions and sabotage would stop it from achieving its aim. He said:
“The worldwide family of IPOB commend Biafrans in Lagos State for their fearlessness, doggedness and effort towards organising this peaceful protest to prove that we are ever formidable wherever we are domiciled.
“It is now beyond every doubt that IPOB is more determined than ever to pursue this cause of Biafra independence to its logical conclusion regardless of human and material cost.
“The protest today in Lagos will send an unmistakable signal to the powers that be and enemies of Biafra alike that struggle for Biafra independence, championed by the one and only indomitable IPOB ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu dead or alive, is duty bound to restore Biafra no matter the odds against us.
“Anybody or group of persons doubting our resolve is in for an Almighty shock soon. We say to those reeling under the brutal suppression of the present regime in the Middle Belt and elsewhere that only IPOB has the solution that can save you.”
