IPOB USA is the American branch of Indigenous People of Biafra. We, the Indigenous People of Biafra, are seeking the restoration of the sovereign, independent, and Judeo-Christian Nation-state of Biafra. We are also fighting against radical Islamic terrorism that has slaughtered millions of our people and is hell-bent on the occupation of our land and Islamization of our people. Biafra was annexed into Nigeria - a British colonial contraption with an abysmal record in governance and human rights.
IPOB USA’s MESSAGE TO BIAFRANS
Our right to self-determination is guaranteed by both the UN and African Union charters, but it is unlike other freedom struggles: We are not trying to "secede" from Nigeria. We are rather determined to Restore the Independence and Sovereignty of the Biafran Nation, a country that once existed, receiving official recognition from 5 nations (Gabon, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, and Zambia) and unofficial recognition from several others before it was conquered and occupied by Nigeria. Other nations such as Israel, Poland, Ukraine, or Armenia share such an experience of being occupied by a another state but later regained their independence and freedom.
Why Restore Biafra? Because as Nigerian governments have deliberately failed in providing our people with the Security of Life and Property, and the basic right of citizenship which is the primary responsibility of all civilized nations. Rather Nigerian governments have, for several decades, been involved in serial pogroms and massacres of Biafrans, including committing Genocide in which 3.5 million Biafrans were killed (and continue to be killed today). We are determined to Restore the Biafran Nation so that our people can live in Freedom, Peace and Security- protected from Islamic Genocide and terrorism.
According to the UN doctrine known as the "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P), the international community has the "obligation" to intervene and protect ethnic groups whose governments have consistently failed to afford them the basic right of citizenship: Security of Life and Property. And today, in international law, national Sovereignty no longer means only the right of leaders of countries to protect the "territorial integrity" of their countries from foreign invasion or interference and to do as they please within the borders of their nations in the name of "national security". It rather now includes the "obligation" of those leaders to safeguard the life and property of their citizens. A country that cannot perform this basic function has no right to the obedience and allegiance of the citizens it has serially slaughtered and deliberately failed to protect.
