- The Biafran agitation has generated tension all over the nation
- This has been fueled mainly by hate speeches from different groups
- A leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has advised supporters of the group to thread with caution
A United States of America-based IPOB leader, Candy Stallworth, has cautioned supporters of the group to quit hate speeches in their quest for the sovereign state of Biafra.
Stallworth who is IPOB's mobilization leader in the US, sent the message to supporters of the group via her Facebook page today, Thursday, July 20.
She wrote: “Biafra do you know that my wall is watched by thousands of Americans daily, please if you are true to the struggle don't embarrass IPOB or Biafra in front of America when you speak hateful messages.
“Please present IPOB and Biafra as a non violent entity so that Americans will want to help and build for us but when they see you attack and bring ugliness it makes them think less of you !
“So Biafrans make a positive mark in US soil so that we can gain our freedom without restraints.”
