Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB,
yesterday released a text of the Catholic Pontiff, Pope Francis’ address to thousands of IPOB members who
gathered last Sunday at the Vatican City for the weekly Angelus.
The message said the Pope has cautioned their oppressors, the Nigerian government and its military and their agents. to repent and stop killing Biafra agitators or face the
wrath of God that will be catastrophic.
The text of the Catholic Pontiff address was made available to Vanguard by the IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful.
It was reported that the message disclosed that the Pope advised the Biafra agitators and the crowd that gathered at St Peter’s Square from the balcony of the Apostolic
Palace to be patient in all they are doing, that God’s patience towards their oppressors is without limit but the time to end their oppression is now.
The Pontiff according to IPOB, welcomed the need to firmly and unreservedly focus on negotiations and dialogue between governments and agitators all over the
world including Biafra agitators and the government of Nigeria, like it was done in Syria which has brought the current ceasefire in the country, involving government and rebel forces.
“I invite all to pray so that this window of opportunity can give relief to the suffering people and agitators and encourage the necessary humanitarian aid, and open the
way to dialogue and much desired peace” he said.
