Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has petitioned the United Nations over the killings of Biafrans in South Africa and that those affected were majorly Igbo.
The latest killings of Nigerians in South Africa were purely the IPOB members and we demand that the UN should call the President of South Africa to order.
Kanu, in a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Director, Comrade Emma Powerful, urged the UN to move against the rights abuses South Africa are subjected to as he also asks the UN to support the
the secession of Biafra from Nigeria.
He also posited that the Biafrans did not support the killings and would not tolerate how our people are dying every day.
The statement said: “He (Kanu) demanded urgent action against the numerous rights abuses inflicted daily upon Biafrans and the need to support the undeniable right of Biafrans to self-determination as
enshrined in law, statute and various UN conventions.
“Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.
‘Every issues concerning our people’ as mentioned by Kanu ranges from the incessant killing of Biafrans in South Africa and extortion and killing of Biafrans and taking over their businesses
Our case with Nigeria is still with UN Parliament as“Exploiting the rights of indigenous people to self-determination as provided by the UN charter 2007, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his usual charismatic poise has conscientiously pursued freedom for the oppressed people of Biafra.”
“From every indication, there is palpable air of assurance that all the years of neglect of Biafra as a global issue requiring serious attention is now a thing of the past,” it added.
