The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has berated the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) over a statement credited to the group, asking the government to deal with Biafra agitators decisively.

ACF reported urged President Muhammadu Buhari to crush IPOB and other pro-Biafra groups with the full weight of the law as they have shown lack of understanding in the concept of actualization of sovereign state of Biafra.

According to a statement issued by IPOB spokesman Mr Emma Powerful, he described the ACF as “a group of clueless and misinformed old wicked men and women."

He accused the Arewa members of "keeping quiet while the present administration lacked understanding of what governance is all about and has in the process subjected the country into untold hardship, caused by high cost of petroleum products, lack of electricity and bad economic management”.

“They lack understanding of what is happening now about the restoration of Biafra, all they know is how to display wickedness and the hatred they have against the people of Biafra, but they forgot that Biafra is a spirit no man born of a woman or forum and organization can defeat.

“Again, ACF should remember that during the time of Nigeria’s Independence, Biafrans like Mazi Mbonu Ejike, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Dr. Michael Okpara, Dr. Akanu Ibiam, Margaret Ekpo and others were at the forefront of the struggle for the independent of Nigeria, these great individuals were all Biafra, where was your vision when these individuals were fighting for independence of Nigeria you are today claiming to be your property,” the statement said.

The group's leader, Nnamdi Kanu alongside two others, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, are facing criminal charges of felony, illegal possession of firearms and assisting in the management of an unlawful society.
