We Shall No Longer Burn Biafra’s Flag, We”ll Surrender It to Nigerian Govt – TRIPOB


Two splinter groups of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, The Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIPOD, and Renegade Indigenous People of Biafra, RENIPOB, have nominated incarcerated former militant leader, Henry Okah, to hand over the Biafra flag to Nigerian government on January 1 2017.

Both groups in a statement released on Friday by TRIPOB’s spokesperson, Chima Pillip Effiong Osuji said the ‎original plan was to burn the Biafra flag on October 1, 2016 in Abuja but that it would now instead surrender “the defunct Republic of Biafra flag on the symbolic date of January 15, 2017″ to the Nigerian government at the Eagle Square Abuja.

The new date signified the day the Nigerian Civil War ended, on January 15, 1970.

According to the statement, “The Re-branded Indigenous People of Biafra (TRIPOB), gladly and warmly welcomes into its fold, the Comrade Emma Powerful-led breakaway faction from theNnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who now go by the name Renegade Indigenous People of Biafra, or RENIPOB.

“Following this development, all subsequentTRIPOB/RENIPOB statements shall be jointly signed by Comrade Emma Powerful and the undersigned. Any statements from IPOB using “Emma Powerful” as its signatory are that of an impostor.

“And following appeals by well-meaning Nigerians across the world, especially civil war veterans of the defunct Biafra Republic, TRIPOB ‎shall no longer burn the flag of the defunct Biafra Republic as earlier planned for October 1, 2016, a date which has also been rescheduled.

“Replacing the burning of the flag ceremony shall be the ‘surrender’ ceremony of the defunct Republic of Biafra flag on the symbolic date of January 15, 2017 at the Eagle Square Abuja, FCT. The general public as well as all relevant agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria, particularly, the Presidency is please, advised to take note of the date.

“We strongly believe that the leaders we have nominated shall use their respective offices to help propagate an intense campaign of inclusiveness, love, peace, progress, industry and free enterprise, social justice and democracy within and amongst our compatriots in an indivisible, united and prosperous Nigerian federation.”



  1. Insanity and more insanity all the way, all as a result of monumental mess by Nnamdi Kanu and his mindless self-serving gangs! Anyone fool playing with Biafrans liberation or trying cash in on the pain of the people will eventually pay the nemesis.
    Nnamdi is not supposed to be where he is now if not for his arrogance, power-drunk, wickedness and abuse of Biafrans, especially those who came out and joined him in the struggle with all their heart, thinking he meant well, not knowing he and his gang is only interested in titles, fame, self-enrichment, living large and ego-trip!
    Hijackers of Radio Bafra's continued arrogance and indiscipline is only causing Biafra struggle more problem and backwardness, but sadly most of the blind, uninformed but understandably desperate Biafrans following them as saviours are not aware of the truth that made many genuine Biafrans to leave them! They have no remorse in their brain to appeal to Biafrans they hurt and destroyed with their lies, blackmail and blood of Biafrans in their hands while mocking and challenging 'Chukwuokike' all the time to destroy them if they are lying to Biafrans.
    But to the new faceless imbeciles of so-called 'TriPod', 'Rogue-pod', 'Renpod and all that crap of nigeria-Buhari vultures, those around those fools need to warn them to quickly move to Sambisa forest before the God of Biafra strike them to dust soon in His raging anger! Why is every idiot making mockery of Biafra restoration
