IPOB says it’s still open for ‘dialogue on peaceful exit of Biafra from Nigeria’

The Indigenous People of Biafra has declared that they are now prepared to engage in negotiations with the Federal Government on a peaceful secession from Nigeria through a UN-monitored referendum.

The pro-Biafran group said that the nonviolent, non-criminal agitation for Biafra independence began in 2012, but the Federal Government has persisted in attacking its members.

This was revealed in a press release that the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, released on Saturday.
