The Nigerian separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has disclosed that Biafra and Ambazonia in Cameroon are at the threshold of their collaboration in the struggle for independence.
In a statement by the Biafra group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, obtained by SaharaReporters on Sunday September 12, it says the Nigerian Government and its Cameroonian counterpart met recently to plan ways to frustrate any attempt by IPOB and Ambazonia leaders to come together because any such agreement would be a nightmare to both nations.
According to the Biafran group, Cameroon and Nigeria enjoy the spilling of the blood of their innocent citizens and that Nigeria’s Buhari facilitated the meeting with the delegation from Cameroon, while hiding under claims it was for security and border control.
The statement makes it clear that no matter what the Governments of Nigeria and Cameroon will put in place to stop the two separatist groups in their moves to obtain independence, they will not succeed.
“The meeting in Abuja between both countries shows the fear of the agreement between Biafra and Ambazonia. The agreement between the two emerging nations has become a nightmare for Nigeria and Cameroon but unfortunately, there is nothing they can do to stop their emergence…” Part of the statement reads.
"Biafra and Ambazonia have been divinely ordained to come, and they are at the threshold. No antics of Nigeria and her partner in crime can stop Biafran and Ambazonia actualisation.” It further reads.
The group is sure that the only way out for peace to dwell in the Sub Saharan region would be by letting them get their independence. “The independence of Biafra and Ambazonia and Biafra are the only things that can guarantee peace in the gulf of Guinea and the African sub-region because they are the countries that can guarantee peace in the region.”
It has thus called on world leaders and the international community to guarantee referendums for the separatist groups to peacefully break away from their mother nations. “We are also calling on world leaders and the international community especially America, Israel, European Union and civilised nations across the globe to prevail on Nigeria and Cameroon to allow Biafra and Ambazonia to conduct their referendum to decide their fate.”
“The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari and Paul Biya of Cameroon should be held responsible for whatever happens to Biafrans and the good people of Ambazonia and Biafra.”
The Biafra group ended by confirming it signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the self-proclaimed State of Ambazonia to see into it that both “nations” obtain independence.
“We signed MOU for collaboration in our struggle for independence. We shall continue to work together as brothers and the oppressors understand our resolve to synergise, hence their morbid fear and anxiety. The agreement and MOU have come to stay and nothing can change it.”
It is worth mentioning that after news of a possible alliance between Biafra and Ambazonia groups went viral last April, the later distanced herself from the reported association, indicating the claim was propagated by opponents who intend to place a wedge between their movement for an independent nation and the Nigerian Government.
