The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has told the United Kingdom (UK) that referendum - and not asylum - is what it desire.

IPOB - led by diaspora-based Nnamdi Kanu - made this known in a recent statement issued by its media and publicity secretary, who has the pseudonym, Emma Powerful.

IPOB - agitating for the breakup of Nigeria - reiterated its freedom quest in the statement in reaction to a plan by the UK to grant asylum to its members.

“The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has noted with satisfaction the news that the United Kingdom has agreed to grant asylum to persecuted Biafra agitators resident in the UK,” outlawed IPOB’s statement reads.

“While we commend them for this bold initiative, we wish to most graciously remind them that what we Biafrans need and cherish the most is referendum and not asylum in the UK.

“We are tired of living in bondage in the devilish contraption called Nigeria they single-handedly created.

“We would not wish our children, now and generations unborn, to share the same geopolitical space with those that reward terrorists and criminalize law abiding citizens.

“That Nigeria is a country run by terrorists for the benefit of terrorists has been confirmed by this noble move by the United Kingdom.

“Aso Rock, the seat of power in Nigeria is a terrorist haven with serving ministers who are openly sympathetic to terrorists and their activities coming and going as they please, while freedom fighters are languishing in jail.

“We want freedom, not asylum.”
