Stop glorifying IPOB, FG tells western media

The Federal Government has berated some western countries for giving credence to the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this in Washington DC during his official engagements with some international media organisations and policy institutes.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the minister is in Washington to engage with international media organisations and think tanks on the just concluded 2023 polls

“IPOB is a terrorist organisation so declared by the Nigeria Government, yet some western countries harbour them and have been dealing with the illegal body.

“They allow them to raise funds, some allow them to lobby their congressmen and lawmakers and whatever funds they realise  they use it to destabilise the country,”  the minister said.

Mohammed said it was hypocritical for the western world to claim it is fighting terrorism yet turn around to be supporting a terrorist organisation.

The minister also used the opportunity of the interactions to call on the foreign media to stop regurgitating “social media fables” on the Nigeria’s 2023 elections on their platforms.

He said they should be critical and interrogate the information they get on the social media before reporting them on their platforms.
