JUST IN: IPOB declares support for Anya over comments on Queen Elizabeth.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended Prof Uju Anya over her remarks on late Queen Elizabeth of England.
The group said Anya's views on Queen and the British government represented the opinion of over 98 percent of Biafrans.
In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, denied knowledge of the person of Anya, until her viral comment and counter comments on Twitter, insisting that what was certain was that pains and scar occasioned by Biafran genocide lives with Ndigbo.
The statement reads in part: "British Government and her allies under the leadership of Queen Elizabeth supplied military equipment and manpower to Nigeria to wipe out Biafrans. They used their propaganda media BBC to label Biafrans rebels and prevented any assistance to Biafrans.
"As a result many Biafran lives were wasted including the family members of Prof Uju. The world should know that, Biafrans both young and old will not forgive the late Queen and the British people especially the politicians unless the British Government allows Biafran to regain their Sovereignty through Referendum.
"The late Queen and British Government changed Aburi agreement between Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the Biafra leader and Yakubu Gowon with the sole aim of teaching Igbo or Biafran people lessons because of their resilience, determination and resistance from British colonization through Ekumeku warriors and other groups that stood on their ways.
