IPOB Dismisses ‘Stand Up Nigeria’, Slams FG Over Amnesty Report

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has condemned what it refers to as a ploy by the Federal Government and the security agencies to fool Nigerians by using a non-existent group, ‘Stand Up Nigeria’.
Pro-Biafra group, IPOB, has dismissed the ‘Stand Up Nigeria’ group as a smokescreen by government to cover their faces following the Amnesty International report on the senseless killing of unarmed Easterners and IPOB members agitating for the emancipation of the South-East region.
In a statement signed by their Spokesman, Emma Powerful, the separatist group held that the ‘Stand Up Nigeria’ group was just another shameless strategy to hide government atrocities and stifle their voices, Vanguard writes.
“The indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, worldwide and its Directorate of State, DOS, criticise the so-called Stand up Nigeria and the fake Rev. Christie Amor who never understands the meaning of Amnesty International report on the killing of unarmed members of IPOB,” the statement read.
“The shameless strategy of propping up non-existing groups to make frivolous press statements in a spurious bid to cover up the blood stained activities of the oppressive Nigerian state has suddenly gotten to an embarrassing level. One unknown group, which actually is a pseudonym for the public relations wing of a security service has been hired in an unsuccessful attempt to dilute the Amnesty International report backed up by videos, pictures/photos and live witnesses/direct victims of the attacks (which are currently trending all over the world).
“The non-existent group branded Stand up Nigeria, led by an unknown “Rev” Christie Amor, fruitlessly embarked on an attempt to water down the impact of the damning Amnesty International report on extra judicial killings of Easterners/IPOB members by Nigeria’s military in the last twelve months.
“Nobody has heard of Rev Christie Amor anywhere before now; the only Stand Up Nigeria anybody has ever heard of is the stand-up comedy shows held by Basket mouth and co.”
IPOB recently accused President Muhammadu Buhari of ignorance of their cause, stating that they’re closer than ever to “liberation”.
