IPOB Urges Igbo Traders to Safeguard Investments by Relocating to Southeast Amidst Demolition Concerns

…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on Igbo traders operating in the western and northern regions of Nigeria to relocate their investments to the Southeast in order to safeguard against potential destruction.


This appeal comes in response to the recent demolitions of buildings at the Alaba International Market in Lagos.

The spokesperson for IPOB, Emma Powerful, emphasized the need for proactive measures, asserting that being forewarned is being forearmed.

Victims of Economic and Human Destruction:

IPOB sympathizes with fellow Igbo individuals and Biafrans who have faced ethnic profiling and prejudice, particularly in Lagos.


The group believes that the Igbo have historically suffered economic and human destruction, tracing back to the amalgamation of Nigeria.

Powerful highlights the countless lives and properties lost by the Igbo in religious and tribal riots in Northern Nigeria.

Acknowledging the removal of illegally constructed buildings, IPOB warns that due to the animosity of Yoruba politicians towards the Igbo, further demolitions within the market may occur, prompting the need for preparedness.

Calculated Strategies to Impoverish Biafra:

IPOB asserts that the ongoing destruction of major business establishments, such as portions of the Alaba International Market, is a deliberate tactic to push hardworking Biafran youths into poverty.

They view this as part of a phased strategy aimed at damaging the economic well-being of Biafra.


The group cautions against allowing hard-earned money to be lost in Lagos and urges the return of families and investments to Biafra Land.

Rebuilding and Economic Independence:

In light of the situation, IPOB calls upon Igbo individuals and all Biafrans in Lagos and the northern parts of Nigeria to relocate back to their homeland and contribute to the development of shopping malls, modern markets, supermarkets, and plazas in Biafra Land.

Additionally, the group encourages large-scale farming of Biafran staple foods.

IPOB reminisces about the region’s prosperous economic past before detrimental government policies forced many Biafrans to leave the East, emphasizing the need to reclaim their economic strength.

Silence of Yoruba Leaders and Divine Arrangement:

Expressing disappointment at the silence of some Yoruba leaders regarding the demolitions, IPOB urges Yoruba politicians not to destroy Biafrans’ properties but to grant them time to relocate their assets to Igboland.


The group sees the ongoing events as a divine arrangement, bringing Biafrans closer together in their fight for independence from Nigeria, which they believe will occur in the near future.


According to IPOB, the Igbo people have made considerable efforts to integrate into Nigerian society, but due to persistent challenges and limited options, they are now left with the necessity of pursuing Biafra’s independence.

The group asserts that time will prove the validity of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and IPOB’s long-held beliefs.
