Just In- UN Set To Announce Date For Biafra Referendum? – IPOB

We recall how top leaders of the In¬digenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) said that the United Nations (UN) was well-dis¬posed to their demand for a referendum on Biafra.

They said that the UN may announce a date for the referendum before the end of July.

However, the IPOB leader has been missing since the Nigerian army invaded his house and the date of the referendum has not been announced.

The leaders said that IPOB had intensified inter-national lobby for the UN to facilitate a plebiscite for the people of Biafra to decide if they would continue to be part of a united Nigeria or have their separate country.

A senior IPOB leader in Umuahia, Abia State, said that some influential world pow-ers and members of the UN Security Council had shown positive responses to the request.

He hinted that IPOB had secured an appoint¬ment with one of the world powers to agree on a date for the referendum which would later be communicat-ed to the Nigerian govern-ment through the UN.
