dbo:abstract

La etnia mayoritaria del estado son los igbo —8 millones—, y las religiones más extendidas son el cristianismo y las creencias animistas.​ En abril de 2016 la policía secreta de Nigeria anunció el descubrimiento de 55 cadáveres enterrados en una fosa común al sur del país en la de Abia, bastión del movimiento IPOB.​ En noviembre de 2016 Amnistía Internacional anunció que al menos 150 seguidores del grupo separatista habían sido asesinados por el Ejército de Nigeria en el último año. Según una investigación de esta organización, sustentada por fotografías y vídeos, los militares dispararon munición real "con poco o sin ningún aviso" para dispersar a manifestantes en actos de protesta celebrados entre agosto de 2015 y agosto de 2016. También denunció haber encontrado "indicios de ejecuciones extrajudiciales masivas" perpetradas por las fuerzas de seguridad y que en una de ellas mataron al menos a 60 personas en un espacio de dos días.​​ En septiembre de 2017 el gobierno de Nigeria declaró grupo terrorista a este movimiento.​ (es)

As of May 2022, the United Kingdom started denying asylum to members of IPOB who engaged in human rights abuses, though the U.K. government clarified that IPOB had not been designated as a terrorist organisation. IPOB has criticized the Nigerian federal government for poor investment, political alienation, inequitable resource distribution, ethnic marginalization, and heavy military presence, extrajudicial killings in the South-Eastern, South-Central and parts of North-Central regions of the country. The organization rose to prominence in the mid-2010s and is now the largest Biafran independence organization by membership. In recent years, it has gained significant media attention for becoming a frequent target of political crackdowns by the Nigerian government. It also has numerous sites and communication channels serving as the only trusted social apparatus educating and inculcating first hand information and news to its members. (en)
  • Povos Indígenas do Biafra (em inglês: Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB) é uma organização separatista na Nigéria. Seu principal objetivo é restaurar o Estado independente de Biafra na antiga Região do Leste da Nigéria por meio de um referendo de independência. O grupo foi fundado em 2012 por , um ativista político nigeriano-britânico conhecido por sua proeminente defesa do movimento contemporâneo pela independência de Biafra. Foi considerada uma organização terrorista em 2017 sob a Lei de Terrorismo da Nigéria. O Povo Indígena do Biafra critica o governo federal nigeriano pelo pouco investimento, alienação política, distribuição desigual de recursos, marginalização étnica e forte presença militar, execuções extrajudiciais nas regiões Sudeste, Centro-Sul e partes do Centro-Norte do país. A organização ganhou destaque em meados da década de 2010 e atualmente é a maior organização independentista de Biafra em número de membros. Nos últimos anos, ganhou significativa atenção da mídia por se tornar um alvo frequente de repressão política por parte do governo nigeriano. Também possui vários sites e canais de comunicação que servem como o único aparato social que educa e inculca informações e notícias em primeira mão aos seus membros. (pt)
  • «Коренные народы Биафры» (англ. Indigenous People of Biafra; сокр. IPOB) — сепаратистская организация, возглавляемая , выступающая за отделение от Нигерии части её юго-восточных земель, населённых в основном народом игбо, и образование независимого государства Биафра. Группировка требует от нигерийского правительства проведение референдума и обещает продолжать свою пропаганду об отделении Биафры до тех пор, пока Нигерия не установит дату его проведения «для урегулирования вопроса о Биафре цивилизованным и демократическим способом». Риторика лидеров группировки сводится к тому, что богатый нефтью регион, в котором проживают преимущественно христиане из племени игбо, не должен «кормить остальную мусульманскую Нигерию». 20 сентября 2017 года Верховный суд Нигерии установил временный запрет на деятельность организации.
