The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has come to Nigeria to instigate another civil war.
The pro-Biafra group raised the alarm following the recent visit of Blair to Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
They alleged that it was the same British godfathers’ military and diplomatic support to the core North that enabled the Nigerian government defeat Biafra between 1967 and 1970.
A statement by the IPOB director of media and publicity, Emma Powerful, said Blair’s visit would likely instigate another Ethno-religious crisis.
He also alleged that the former prime minister’s visit was also targeted at causing violence against Christians and Biafrans in Northern Nigeria.
Britain, a supposed Christian country, for reasons best known to it, has persistently worked against the interest of Biafra and majority of Christians in Nigeria. What Tony Blair is doing today is a well trodden path for the British government.
They have come to officially give their blessings to the impending massacre of Biafrans and other Christian minorities in the North. Simply put, Tony Blair has come to instigate another civil war in Nigeria the same way he started the one going on in Iraq today.
Arewa Consultative Forum, along with Northern Elders Forum, must know that 1967 is not 2017 because Britain will not defend them when the chips are down.
