The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday July 1, 2021, said that the groups struggle for a Sovereign State of Biafra is not just the desire to establish a geo-political entity called Biafra, but to ensure freedom from every influence hindering the full realisation and development of the endowed talents and gifts of its people by God.

The leadership of the pro-Biafra group while frowning at the arrest of their Kanu even when he had long ago denied his Nigerian citizenship said “Our peaceful agitation notwithstanding, the Nigerian government continued unhindered its plan to exterminate our race and take over our ancestral land and resources through the instrumentality of the Fulani Herdsmen on the one hand and the Nigerian terrorists in Uniform comprising all its security forces (the Army, the Navy, the Airforce, the Police, DSS, Civil defense and all other of its armed agencies).”

“Today they have not only taken their due place amongst the comity of nations, they are accorded their due respect as well and Israelis can now live in any place of their choice with the assurance that they have a nation and government that will come to their aid at every given time and moment in any part of the world they may reside.”

ADDRESS TO THE BIAFRAN PEOPLE BY THE HEAD OF DIRECTORATE OF STATE OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB) WORLDWIDE MAZI CHIKA EDOZIEM.1st July 2021
“Good evening to you great Biafrans. Good morning and good afternoon to you depending on your location time. My name is Mazi Chika Edoziem, I am from Iheoma in Biafraland. By the mercy and grace of CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA PURU IME IHE NILE, I am a servant of the great and wonderful Indigenous People of Biafra and the Head of the Directorate of State.
“On Monday the 28th of June 2021, Biafrans and the world at large woke up to the news making the rounds that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was in the custody of the Nigerian security agency the DSS to be precise. The IPOB leadership has of course through my office confirmed this to be the case. I wish to use this opportunity to inform the Biafran people, friends, and well wishers that our leader Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was abducted criminally in Kenya and illegally brought into Nigeria.
“This criminal violation of international law was carried out by Nigeria in spite of the fact that Onyendu does not possess any Nigerian travelling document having repudiated any previous connection he may have had with the contraption called Nigeria.
“Great Biafrans let me state without equivocation that our leader Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is at the helm of our match to freedom not withstanding the present turn of events. While Onyendu is temporarily and illegally in the custody of the Nigerian government, the Directorate shall be implementing every one of our fundamental objectives which he has laid down.
“Our struggle for freedom is not just the desire to establish a geopolitical entity called Biafra, of course that is a fundamental objective of our Self Determination struggle but muchmore imperative is our hunger and thirst for true, honourable and irrevocable freedom from all manner of subjugation and oppression, freedom from every debilitating influence that retard and hinder the full realisation and development of our heaven endowed talents and gifts.
“We pursue that freedom which a Sovereign and Independent Biafran Nation shall provide our Children and our generations yet unborn to dream big dreams and achieve those dreams in dignity and in liberty.There is no substitute to a Sovereign and Independent Biafran Nation if we must survive as a people. We must recognize and accept the hard reality that there is no safety for us as a race anywhere in the world except in a free and Independent Biafran state.
“As we reflect upon this unpalatable truth, we must begin to contemplate what shall become of and befall our children without a restored Biafran Nation.
“Our Heroes and Heroines past gave great thought to this truth and chose to fight for their freedom and the freedom of their children. This generation of Biafrans have chosen to toe the part of our Heroes past and will not allow our Children to be subservient to any race or Nation.
“We must let history be our guide and learn from history what happened to the “Jews” who were hounded all over the world for extermination until they joined hands to fight for their existence and for the creation of the state of Israel.
“Today they have not only taken their due place amongst the comity of nations, they are accorded their due respect as well and Israelis can now live in any place of their choice with the assurance that they have a nation and government that will come to their aid at every given time and moment in any part of the world they may reside.
“Therefore, this generation of Biafrans must accomplish this work for our Children and generations unborn. We must remain firm and focused in our pursuit, we must refrain from allowing the enemy to distract us and derail our match to freedom.
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu affirm our immutable right to determine our cultural, economic and political systems, as well as our right to Self-determination as guaranteed and proclaimed by the United Nations Declaration on the
Rights of the Indigenous peoples to Self-Determination and Articles V, VI, VII and XII of the African Charter on Human & Peoples Rights (ratified and domesticated by Nigeria in 1983).
“In recognizing and upholding our right as Indigenous People, we made a deliberate choice of nonviolent methodology to achieve our stated objective as Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“Despite the provocations, arrests and torture, notwithstanding the degrading and inhuman treatment meted out to Biafrans and the cold blooded murder and execution of unarmed peaceful Biafran civilians, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has resisted the efforts of the Nigerian government through its security agencies to compel us into violent agitation.
“Now by this blunder of criminally abducting the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. The Nigerian government alone shall be held responsible for the resulting consequences.
“It should by now have become very obvious to the Nigerian government that its state sponsored acts of violence and terror, abductions and extra judicial murders cannot change our resolve to extricate ourselves from the oppressive and humiliating servile existence imposed upon us by the creators of the contraption called Nigeria.
We remain undaunted in our conviction; we remain resolute in our belief in the justness of our cause and we shall remain focused and dedicated in our pursuit of freedom for the Indigenous People of Biafra.The IPOB worldwide family and all Biafrans must close ranks and stand behind the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“It is time to activate the famed discipline for which we are admired all over the world. All principal servants must adhere very
Strictly to our fundamental principle of COMMAND AND CONTROL and apply the chain of command in the exercise of their functions and duties.
“To the politicians of Biafran extraction, a small window of opportunity still remains for you to turn a new leaf and stand up in defense of your people because you do not have time ad infinitum.
“Going forward, the Directorate will be using the twitter handle @real_ipobDOS as its official medium to communicate and update Biafrans and the global community of new developments. I will encourage everyone to follow the handle.
“On 26th July 2021 being the date the Abuja court of Justice Binta Nyako has fixed hearing, all roads must lead to Binta Nyako’s court and both the Nigerian government and the court must understand that the attention of the world community is fixed upon the Zoo and their legal system.
“Prior to this date however, the Directorate of State demand that our leader’s personal physician and any other international physician put forward by the DOS must be granted access to him for a holistic medical examination because of his deteriorating health condition.
“Finally, the Directorate of State appreciate all the solidarity from our Ambazonia and Oduduwa brothers as well as from all well-meaning lovers of freedom for your words of support and encouragement.
“The directorate of State condemn in its entirety the violation of Sunday Igboho’s residence which resulted in the death of many people. IPOB stands ready to assist our Oduduwa brothers in any manner they may request.
“The God of our ancestors CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA is in charge of this great family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and HE is in total control of our match to freedom.
“It is therefore into HIS protective hand that I commit our leader Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. CHUKWUOKIKE shall grant him victory over all our enemies and traducers.
