Secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said it would open an headquarters in Germany so as to be able to coordinate its activities from across the world, which, according to the group, has risen to a high height as a result of the massive sensitisation of Biafrans all over the world.
The group said the move was in preparation of an expected referendum on the demand for independent state of Biafra.
IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said in a statement the headquarters would be declared open by its Deputy Leader, Uche Mefor, and all members of the ruling Directorate of State (DoS) on December 8 and 9, 2017 in Langenfeld Germany.
Powerful said reads: “Due to increased global awareness generated by the activities of the lPOB and the need to effectively harness the positive attention this has brought on the activities of our movement, we the family members of IPOB and it’s leadership worldwide wish to proudly announce the public opening of our brand new official world administrative headquarters.”
He added that the new headquarters would demonstrate the commitment and zeal of IPOB to meet the administrative challenges of its renewed diplomatic offensive and demands of the upcoming mid-2018 independence referendum of the territory of Biafra.
“It will also serve as notice to all friends and well wishers of Biafra that Langenfel, Germany is now the one and only officially recognised world headquarters of IPOB from which every authentic information regarding the agitation for Biafra liberation will emanate from.
“The public is hereby warned to desist from corresponding with any other office except the one in Langenfeld, Germany.
“We however must point out that IPOB have official regional liaison offices in London in United Kingdom, Tel Aviv in Israel, Ankara in Turkey, New Delhi in India, Los Angeles, California in USA with many more expected to open in major countries of the world before the last quarter of 2018.
“These offices will continue to serve as regional points of contact but are not authorised to issue any diplomatic directive. That prerogative is the exclusive preserve of the world headquarters in Langenfeld, Germany under the direct supervision of Mazi Chika Edoziem the Head of the Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
“Any correspondence from any other quarter not sanctioned by Langenfeld, Germany and signed by Mazi Edoziem should be regarded as fake and unauthentic.”
