The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has maintained that if a referendum was conducted in Biafraland it would win.
The group was reacting to the President of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) Yerima Shittima, who said Biafra secessionists will not get victory in a referendum.
Speaking with The Punch, the spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful, said it was certain of victory if there was any referendum on Biafra.
”My leadership told me not to respond to any statement credited to the Arewa youths but their fathers, that is, the Arewa Elders’ Forum.
”But you know very well that if they call for a referendum today, we will win.
”We are praying, let them venture to call for a referendum in Biafraland, then you will know that God Almighty has done it for us.
”They don’t know what we are doing and what we are planning to do,” he said.
