IPOB splits, new faction TRIPOB emerges, to burn Biafran flag on October 1st

In a statement released by one Chima Osuji, a faction named "The Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB)", which is a breakaway group from Nnamdi Kanu's Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has decided to denounce Biafra Republic and burn its flag on October 1st - Nigeria’s Independence day. The statement read;

At an emergency meeting convened by some disaffected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday, August 22, 2016 in Aba, Abia state, it was resolved that due to the rigid and fatalistic position of the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, several of us with like minds shall breakaway and form The Rebranded Indigenous People of Biafra or TRIPOB.
TRIPOB now sees the Biafra question from a different perspective. Biafra will now become to us a powerful metaphor for change, development and greatness of the Igbos inside a united Nigeria, where the South East axis will be a utopia from the sheer determination borne out of the Biafra metaphor.
We believe in being a part of a united Nigeria, and a new way of thinking, where the victim mentality will no longer be acceptable.
We have accepted the fact that the Biafra Republic is not a reality but an anachronism, and doubt that the South South region will become a part of a Biafra Republic, except by force; after a declaration of another civil war.
That the lessons and history of the civil war will only reinforce the belief in ourselves to reach the zenith in this great country, Nigeria, where opportunities abound for every one regardless of tribe or religion, and even where such narrow sentiments exists, we will not see ourselves as victims. Never!
In view of this new mindset, members of the TRIPOB and any new defectors will on October 1, 2016 make a public denunciation of a Seccesionist Biafra Republic at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
The event will also include recitation of the Pledge to Nigeria our Country, singing of the National anthem, followed by a solemn burning of the Biafra flag and unveiling a new Biafra flag representing pride, change, potential and spirit of the Igbo race which can thrive any where in the world.
Long live the Biafra Spirit! Igbo…Kwenu!!!
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria! Nigeria…Kwenu!!!
