The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Australia has announced that its members will hold rally across Australia on May 30th in honour of Biafra fallen heroes.
This is even as the group has thrown its weight behind the Comrade Uchenna Madu led Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASOB) who are planning to mark this year’s Biafra Day with a sit-at-home protest on May 31st in Nigeria.
The Director of Membership and Mobilization of IPOB in Australia, Mr. Kennedy Ochi in a statement made available to the Nation on Monday, disclosed that the rally which is scheduled to happen in Victoria was in commemoration of the remembrance of Biafra’s fallen heroes.
According to Ochi, IPOB in Australia will on May 29 hold a candle night and peaceful demonstration at Federation Square, Melborne, Australia will run currently in other European countries.
Ochi who backed the May 31st sit-at-home call by the leadership of group in Nigeria stated that the rally is to further draw the attention of the global community to the plight and marginalization of the people of old eastern region in the hands of the Nigerian government, adding that they; IPOB and pro-Biafran agitators, would continue to use every legislative means within its reach to continue to push for a sovereign State of Biafra.
The group while condemning what it termed as “senseless” killing of “innocent Biafrans” by the “Nigerian security agents” lamented that the killing of Biafrans have been a norm among the security personnel who have gone unpunished.
