The military made the declaration in a statement on Friday by the Director of Defence Information, John Enenche.

Read the statement below:


  • The Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) group which has posed to be a security challenge in the Country, has been metamorphosing from one stage to the other. After due professional analysis and recent developments, it has become expedient, to notify the general public that; the claim by IPOB actors that the organization is non-violent is not true. Hence, the need to bring to public awareness the true and current state of IPOB. In this regard, some of their actions, clandestinely and actively, that has been terrorising the general public among others include;

  • The formation of a Biafra Secret Service.

  • Claimed formation of Biafra National Guard.

  • Unauthorised blocking of public access roads.

  • Extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal road blocks.

  • Militant possession and use of weapons (stones, molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles among others) on a military patrol on 10 September 2017.

  • Physical confrontation of troops by Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB actors at a check point on 11 September 2017 and also attempts to snatch their rifles.

IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu are campaigning for an independent country of Biafra made up of ethnic Igbos. Although they had said their campaign was non-violent, Mr. Kanu said this week that that stance would be reviewed, accusing the military of attacking unharmed members of his organisation.

The recent clash between "Operation Python Dance" Squad and IPOB members in Abia State have left several people wounded. Although there have been reports of deaths particularly of IPOB members, none has been confirmed.

Meanwhile, the governors of the South-east states have entered into a meeting in Enugu State expected to deliberate on the recent rising tension in the region.

  1. Badoo group that has been killing people in Lagos every day wasn't declared a terrorist group. The Fulani herdsmen that have been massacring innocent lives weren't declared terrorist group, it's IPOB that have never been violent. The Nigerian military attacked them with guns and ammo they defended themselves with sticks, now they are terrorists group.
    Can't you see that this country is really sick?
