IPOB Press Statement
We the global family of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, condemn in very strong terms, the constant harassment, abduction, torture, and secret killing of Biafrans or anybody suspected to be IPOB member throughout Biafraland. This deliberate ethnic cleansing has continued unabated despite our repeated alarms.
For no just cause, the Nigerian security operatives on Friday, September 18, murdered one Mazi Onyeka Udechukwu, a vigilante, in Enugu State. These terrorists in security uniform also shot and shattered Udechukwu’s father’s private part with bullets at Ogui Road Enugu. The victim’s badly wounded father is currently receiving intensive medical treatment in a hospital.
It’s still a surprise how the Nigeria security agents suddenly became a willing tool in the hands of the Fulani-led federal government for the elimination of Judo-Christians and Biafrans. There is no gain saying the fact that the failure of Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to set up a panel of inquiry to investigate the recent unprovoked attack and barbaric killing of unarmed IPOB members at Emene, has only emboldened the perpetrators of this atrocity and criminality.
We are equally aware of the ongoing abductions at Omuma Road Aba, Abia State, Obigbo in Igweocha, River state are being perpetrated by the Fulani terrorists in Nigerian security uniforms. More than two people have already been murdered. IPOB is monitoring all these atrocities, and those behind them must be prepared to face the consequences when the time comes.
The latest victims of this criminality include Mazi Chukwudi Idika and 10 others who committed no crime known to mankind. The Fulani dominated security officers in Abia State, also tortured an innocent woman and took her into custody without any provocation.
Fulani is desperate to conquer our land with the support of Nigeria army, police and other security apparatus. They have equally engaged their foot-soldiers – the Fulani terrorist herdsmen, Boko Haram, Ansaru, bandits, ISWAP and other terrorist groups who are busy killing, raping, burning down villages, and destroying farm lands and taking over communities in Southern Kaduna, Plateau and other parts Middle Belt region. The security agencies are watching them ravaging the land without hindrance. Terrorists now walk freely in Nigeria, brandishing Ak47 and other deadly weapons. But the hypocritical security agencies are very much busy pursing unarmed citizens in Biafra land.
Nigerian security agencies must stop using high handedness on the peaceful members of IPOB, and innocent citizens of Biafra from now, otherwise they will regret their actions soon.
Enough is enough!
