IPOB PRESS RELEASE
November 23 2022 | IPOB
The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of the great indefatigable liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU, has been drawn to the constant and numerous massacres of scores of our people in Agu Amede Community of Eha Amufu in Isi Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu (Enugwu) State.
The traditional Ruler of the area, Igwe Christopher Nnamani, President General and Youth Leader of Eha Amufu and its environs contributed in heavy measure to the Fulani MASSACRE in their community. These evil leaders of the Community joined hands with the Nigerian Government Security Forces to chase out ESN operatives from their community, in their desperation to ensure that Fulani takes over the community. Once they succeeded in forcing ESN operatives out of the areas, Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists returned and massacred them.
ESN will not go there again, since by their actions against ESN, they themselves allowed Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists to invade their community and massacre them. “He who fetches ant infested firewood, invites lizards for a feast.”
ESN Command sent a batch of ESN outfit into their community, but they were attacked by the Nigerian agents in the community in collaboration with Nigerian Military and Police, and as a result, many ESN operatives and IPOB members were killed and others detained by Youths of the community.
These communities that betrayed ESN have now discovered scores of dead bodies of their own people massacred by Fulani Jihadists and foot soldiers.
Any community that rejects or sabotages ESN, should not expect ESN operatives to return to their community and they will have a lot of explanations to do to IPOB and Biafrans at the appropriate time.
The Nigeria Military and Police have failed to respond to calls for help from these communities because they are behind and in support of the attacks by the Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists, who are massacring innocent citizens of Enugwu State. Nigeria Military and Police cannot with any measure of certainty, be absolved of direct responsibility for the massacres and mayhem witnessed by our people in Enugwu Provence.
We want to make it clear, and these communities should know that ESN is not coming to defend them, since they collaborated with the Nigeria Military and Police to attack ESN that had come to protect their community. They should call Nigerian Military and Police for help.
After these communities brought in Nigeria Military and Police to attack and massacre ESN operatives in coldblooded, we assured them that Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists will return to take over their communities in no distant time, and it has now happened. However, ESN must avenge the deaths of our fallen members.
We are aware that more than 10 persons were killed by Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists in Agu Amede Community, Eha Amufu town of Isi Uzo Local Government Area of Enugwu State in particular. We mourn them but ESN won’t come to their help or rescue!
The traditional Ruler(s) of the Communities must be prepared to first explain to IPOB why they ejected ESN from their communities.
We are also aware that the numerous attacks and kidnappings going on at “four corner” Enugwu State, are perpetrated by the Commander of 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Umar Musa and the Enugwu State Commissioner of Police. The newly deployed Army Commander was transferred from Kaduna State to Enugwu State to ensure that he gives cover to the Fulani Herdsmen Jihadists Terrorists to continue the elimination of Ndigbo from their indigenous lands so the Fulani can occupy our lands.
The indigenes of the communities affected, told us that the attack began on Saturday, 19 November 2022 and continued on Monday afternoon, 21 November 2022, and more than 100 innocent men and women were murdered in cold-blood without reason in those areas of the State.
The order and instruction have been given to ESN operatives not to deploy into the affected areas except the area of “four corners”, where Fulani Kidnappers are rampaging and murdering innocent citizens of Biafra. We wonder why Fulani Terrorists would be operating freely without hindrance right behind Nigerian Military and Police checkpoints.
We are calling on our people both home and abroad to assist us to fight this battle ahead against Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists in some parts of Enugwu State such as “four corners” and its environs.
Among those killed in one particular community, were six women and four men while five others sustained machete injuries on several parts of their bodies and, were later sent to the hospital.
Members of the community informed us that the terrorizing Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists invaded the community with the intention to kill every male person resident in the community.
They said that the attack on Monday lasted for more than four hours with Nigerian Security Agencies refusing to intervene. It is of note from our past experience that had ESN operatives intervened or been present in the area, Nigerian Security Agencies would quickly deploy in the area to attack ESN and show off their military power!
These Terrorists in Nigerian Military and Police uniforms were deployed to help to wipe out our entire communities in our land, but these communities did not realise at the time that the deployment of Nigerian Security Forces in their areas was a plan to bring in Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists to take over their land. Nigeria Military and Police are deployed in these areas to support and back up the Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists in their massacre of our people and occupation of our lands.
Nobody should blame IPOB and ESN for what is going to happen in that area of Enugwu State in the near future.
Nigeria Government, Military Commander and Police Commissioner in Enugwu, you should all get ready with your propaganda because we must curtail this your criminality in our land, and your senseless killing of our people in our land must stop forthwith.
COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL, MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.
