Nigeria at 57: IPOB Members to wear Black

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will be wearing black on Nigeria’s Independence Day to mourn the loss of their loved ones.

Punch spoke to the Coordinator of IPOB in Ebonyi State, Ugochukwu Nweke, who spoke of the group’s intention to make the day a day of mourning of loved ones lost to the raid by the Nigerian Military on their leader Nnamdi Kanu‘s house.

He said people have been instructed to not gather, but to instead go about their normal businesses and stay at home. He said:

“Which country’s independence are we celebrating? God never created us and called us Nigeria. God created countries and gave them their own separate names. We are Biafrans and we are not participating in anything called Nigeria’s independence.

“On October 1, we are not gathering anywhere. People have been advised to go about their normal business or stay in their homes. Every body should wear black.

“We are mourning our loved ones. They invaded our houses and killed some of us. Even now they are still hunting and killing our people. They call themselves Operation Python Dance.”
