The Indigenous People of Biafra through its Deputy Leader, Mazi Alphonsus Uche Okafor-Mefor has responded to Asari Dokubo for calling the Igbos cowards, and accusing their Supreme Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of working for the enemy – Nigeria’s Government.
IPOB said Asari and his people were serving the Hausa-Fulani Oligarch commonly referred to as the, “Fulanis,” and “Gambaris” of Nigeria as “oil pipeline security contractor,” when they ought to control the rich resources of Niger Delta.
Earlier, Alhaji Asari Dokubo made a video, and registered his disappointment and disagreement with Nnamdi Kanu for asking IPOB to boycott the forth coming 2019 General Elections.
Mazi Uche Okafor-Mefor made IPOB’s response to Asari Dokubo known via his Facebook account yesterday, February 13, 2019. The separatist non-violent organisation urged Asari, and his people of Niger Delta to focus on how to get hold of their rich oil resources, and stop serving the “Fulanis,” and “Gambaris.”
The response reads:
“You are brave, vicious, warriors…Igbos are not ..they are cowards but the oil well in your own backyard is owned and controlled by the “Gambaris”, the Fulanis, your enemies? and yet you the brave and warrior prefer to be an ordinary “oil pipeline security” contractor to them?
A warrior and just wait… the liberator of his people? Still more, you seek to renew and cement that warrior-turned-coward status for Atiku and his Arewa brothers who ganged up against Jonathan, your brother when you have the greatest weapon to use against the system that ensures the continuation of Fulani hegemony?
And just still yet, you are an Amakiri who is not subservient to anybody?
Let me remind you that IPOB has a command structure with highly entrenched ethos founded on the irreducible, supreme principle of ideological consistency that is so sacrosanctly refined and led by the inspirational and charismatic leader, Nnamdi Kanu from whom IPOB and hardcore Biafran faithful take instructions and draw inspiration.
At a time like this, certain inescapable truth must be projected—–you all in the coastal regions should be property owners, resource owners, employers of labour in the oil sector and not security men for the plunderers.You must leave a legacy and a lifeline for the younger generation who are still drinking from the same water they urinate and defecate in, I expect you to be mobilising your people for freedom and not for oil pipeline security contracts, you owe them freedom, aim for it and not slavery, that is only sure way, that is what Nnamdi Kanu is fighting for! I advise you to define your parameters strategically, choose your fight very well and very carefully too! ”
