“We recall very vividly the carnage of September 12” 2018 by the Nigerian army which through its “Operation python dance ll” without any provocation and without any reason whatsoever invaded and occupied Biafraland humiliating, maiming and massacring our people. It is sull fresh in our m nds when on the 14th of September, these murderers and terrorists in army uniform went further to desecrate the traditional stool of the Afaraukwu kingdom in Umuahia shooting and killing everything in sight resulting in the cold blooded murder of more than 36 Biafran youths and arrest of an unspecified number of Biafran men and women.

On SEPTEMBER 14” we observe a TOTAL LOCK DOWN of Biafraland to acknowledge the sacrifices and keep the memory of all Biafrans who were betrayed by Saboteurs alive.
“The Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) reaffirm our unwavering commitment to our struggle for the emancipation of the Biafran People from the oppressive, dehumanizing and degrading conditions imposed upon us by reason of our forceful inclusion in the evil construct called the Zoological Republic of Nigeria.
