President of Alaigbo Development Foundation, ADF, Prof Uzodinma Nwala has pointed out why the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, must be declassified as a terrorist organization.
Nwala said the declassification of IPOB was in the interest of the Igbo nation.
Speaking with The Sun, Nwala said the people of the South-East will be able to integrate IPOB and other pro-Biafra organizations as instruments of development and freedom.
According to Nwala, “ADF believes that it is in the interest of Ndigbo to have IPOB de-proscribed and declassified as a terrorist organization.
“One, it is not a terrorist organization. Two, it is non-violent in its agitations. Three, Ndigbo needs IPOB and other self-determination organizations for their own political struggles for survival and relevance in the scheme of things in the country.
“Employing the methods the Igbo society employs in the handling of the activism of their youth, Ndigbo will be able to integrate IPOB and other pro-Biafra organisations as instruments of development and freedom.
“The Yoruba nation has been able to do this successfully with the OPC. Ndigbo can do so with the youths in search of freedom and equality.”
