Vanguard reports that the Pope, during his Angelus address, from his balcony at the Apostolic Palace, publicly welcomed and greeted the IPOB members.

Speaking more on the event, the IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful said “The IPOB bombarded Pope Francis with 5,500 calls and the Pope answered the calls and gave his word to make sure he talks about Biafra and its restoration and  yesterday, about 35,000 Biafra agitators in Europe, Asia and America visited the Pope at Vatican City and the Pope and other Catholic leaders addressed them as Biafrans and prayed for them."

“That was  the first  time a world leader at that level addressed us and called us by the name Biafrans and prayed for us," he added.

The IPOB spokesman also said “We urge the Christian leaders, Archbishop of  Canterbury, Anglicans worldwide, World Christian Society, WCS, American Christians to pray for Biafra actualization and freedom. This is the time to stand up for the truth because the Boko Haram members who are killing people on daily basis have not been visited with the type of extrajudicial killings with which this APC government has visited us.”

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was charged to court for treason, by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
