There is heavy tension as the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra has seemingly made a U-turn in their non-violent struggle to actualize Biafra.

The position of the separatist group was made known by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra on Wednesday following the military occupation in Nigeria's southeast. 

Kanu in a statement announced that his group would re-consider its “non-violent” separatist struggle amid military operation in Nigeria’s Southeast.
Punch reports that “On Friday the 15th of September 2017, the leadership of IPOB through the instrumentality of the Directorate of State (DOS) headquartered in Germany, will be meeting to vote on the viability or otherwise of continuing our struggle in this non-violent manner,” Mr. Kanu was quoted as saying.

“There is urgent need to begin the process of defending ourselves in the face of relentless murderous attacks from the Nigerian state,” he added.
