The leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday said it will begin Operation David Dance to counter Army’s Exercise Python Dance in the Southeast.
The move, IPOB said, would show the Army that the organisation was also capable of coining words to intimidate people.
In a statement in Awka, the Anambra State capital, by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group cautioned its members to exercise restraint in dealings with security agencies.
IPOB said God would not permit the extermination of its members because they were non-violent in their struggle.
The statement said: “IPOB worldwide advises the people of Biafra and IPOB members to be sure they don’t fall victim in the hands of the Pharaoh’s soldiers, called Operation Python Dance in the Southeast.
“The IPOB devices a means of Operation David Dance, which is recognised by the God Almighty in the Bible.
“It was the dance that gave David victory over Goliath at the battle front because God Almighty does not sleep…” (The Nation)
