The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has insisted they will honour the heroes of the Biafra war on May 30, 2017.
IPOB said that their supreme leader, Nnamdi Kanu has made it clear that he will not rest until Biafra is liberated.
According to Vanguard, the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful also called on ‘Biafrans’ to ignore reports that the rally has been cancelled.
Powerful said “This annual event, which is now observed by Biafrans all over the world as a mark of perpetual respect to the bravery of the few men and women who stood for three years to resist the combined murderous might of Britain, Egypt, Soviet Union and OAU is an event that cannot and should not be toyed with.
“If not for these men and women of the Biafran Army, the Biafran race, especially Igbo, would have been wiped out from the face of this earth. We owe these heroes a great debt of gratitude which can never be fully repaid. Therefore, we must honour them.
“Any person working against the remembrance of our heroes deserves nothing less than death. These evil men, who are in constant meetings with agents of the government of Nigeria to frustrate the remembrance and honour of our soldiers, including IPOB and MASSOB members that fell during protests and rallies deserve a fate worse than what befell saboteurs of the civil war”
