IPOB Bans Nigerian Anthem In South-East Schools and Slaughtering of Cows for Ceremonies
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has announced a ban on the singing of Nigeria’s national anthem in schools across the Southeast.
IPOB’s Head of Directorate of State, Chika Edoziem, made the announcement as part of its action plan for the year 2022.
He also announced the ban on the use of “Fulani cows” during festive seasons in the Southeast.
Edoziem also said IPOB would campaign for the unconditional release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Edoziem said IPOB members should prepare for a worldwide protest with a focus on the British Embassy, Nigerian Embassy, Kenyan Embassy, and the United Nations.
A statement signed by Edoziem and IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, reads in part;
“The following are some of the programs and actions which the leadership will vigorously pursue in 2022.
“These are the ones we can make public for now. Others will be made known at the appropriate time.
“Worldwide campaign for the unconditional release of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (A Prisoner of Conscience). The Campaign will be called THE PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE CAMPAIGN. In furtherance of this CAMPAIGN, all IPOB family members, Biafrans and friends of Biafra are hereby urged to change their profile pictures on social media with our official campaign poster.
The statement added: “The DOS will be creating a new department in IPOB to add to those already existing under the Directorate of State. The department will be designated as IPOB EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. Primary responsibility is to teach our history.
Beginning from tonight, no more Nigerian National Anthems in all Schools in Biafra land. Our Children must no longer be reminded daily that they are under oppression by singing the national anthem of the oppressor. School authorities and proprietors have a responsibility to teach our children our national anthem. The Biafran National Anthem.
“The ban placed on Fulani cows will take effect in April 2022. Effective this month Fulani cows will not be used for any social or ceremonial events and festivals in Biafralan
