Biafra: Suspend South-East visit – IPOB tells British envoy

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has advised the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, to suspend her planned visit to the South-Eastern part of the country.

IPOB made the call after it raised the alarm over an alleged plot to assassinate Laing during her visit to the South-East.

According to the proscribed group, which claimed it got the information through its intelligence arm, the M-Branch, the idea is to assassinate the envoy in the South-East and blame it on its members.

This was revealed in a statement by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Thursday.

The statement partly read, “The global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of our Liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, wish to advise the British High Commissioner, Catriona Laing to be more conscious of her environment.

“The reason for this sincere security advice is to save her life.

“The leadership of IPOB do hereby advise that Ms Catriona Liang, must as a matter of life and death suspend all her planned activities involving travels within Biafran Territories.”
