The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday, September 25, praised the apex Yoruba socio-cultural group Afenifere, Yoruba Elders’ Council and other outspoken leaders from the South West, for speaking out against the recent launch of operation Python dance 11 in the south eastern zone.
The group in a press release signed by Emma Powerful, the media and publicity secretary of IPOB, thanked groups and individuals from the zone for condemning the invasion by military men in a manner he described as overwhelming tide of tyrannical oppression and genocide against the people of Biafra.

IPOB while commending them for rejecting the tag of terrorist organisation on it, also described as rare courage and forthrightness by the south western groups in coming forth to speak up in defence of freedom of speech, expression and association.
“You rose up to condemn evil and their well oiled propaganda machinery that sought to turn truth upside down and make us believe that light is now darkness and darkness light.
“Your collective and individual condemnation of the evil Python Dance II, staged by the Buhari regime to suppress legitimate agitation for freedom through intimidation, slaughter of the innocent and military occupation has earned you an enduring legacy which history will never forget,” part of the release stated.
The group stated further that: “We also commend those men and women of good conscience from across all ethnic divides in Nigeria and across the globe that condemned the genocidal campaign of this Buhari regime against innocent civilian populations across Biafraland.
“With this public display of courage, we are hopeful that many more courageous men and women across West Africa and Africa in general will rise up against this APC tyranny and oppression in black Africa as other races have managed to do.”
The group further said it will remain steadfast and committed to the pursuit of the finest ideals of liberation to set free all oppressed and marginalised people in Nigeria and beyond.
NAIJ.com reported earlier that IPOB declared its readiness to stand before a commission of inquiry into the activities of the Operation Python Dance 2 in the southeast.

IPOB said but for the senate, the security operatives under the operation were ready to commence the ‘mass execution of innocent members’ of the organisation.
In a statement released by Emma Powerful, its spokesperson, on Saturday, September 23, the group commended the senate for standing against what it calls an illegality.
