A member of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Innocent Chigbu, has been appointed an officer of the "IPOB Welfare Department Worldwide".
Before his appointment, Mr Chigbu was declared wanted by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
We had reported that the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, promised to supply free gas and oil to West African countries including Nigeria when the Republic of Biafran is eventually realised.
Kanu also pledged that persecuted Northern Christian communities would be granted political asylum in Biafra to save them from genocidal attack by terrorists.
Kanu who made the pledges in a live broadcast said that the struggle for the independence of Biafra was not borne out of greed to control oil money contrary to insinuations in some quarters.
The IPOB Leader rather explained that the quest for Biafra autonomy was borne out of the desire to liberate the entire black race from subjugation and neocolonialism.
