The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which was proscribed by Nigerian government, has called on the National Assembly and the United Nations (UN) to investigate allegations of extra-judicial killings in the South East.
While commending the South East Senate Caucus for faulting the declaration of the group as a terrorist organization by the Federal Government, it accused the men of the Nigerian Army under the ongoing Operation Python Dance II also known as Egwu Eke II, of committing the acts.
Its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, in a statement, made the call, urging the African Union, European Union (EU) United States, (US) to also investigate the alleged killings in the zone.
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra and its leadership worldwide under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to commend the caucus of South-Eastern senators for standing firm and bold in condemning the Nigerian government and her judiciary for proscribing and labelling IPOB a terrorist group.
“The South-East lawmakers refused to be cowed into submission to tag IPOB as a terrorist and unlawful organisation”, the group stated.
