…Blames Ohaneze And South-East Governors For Attack
The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), has condemned the alleged death and detention of some members of the Biafra Independence Movement, (BIM), by security agencies during a gathering. The group made the condemnation in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Wednesday.
It stated that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South East governors are to be blamed for the development.
The group also told the Nigerian Military, instead, should focus on using its hardware and fire power on Fulani terror herdsmen in Benue, and other terrorists in the North-East region of the country.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that IPOB also issued a warning to some of its members allegedly “romancing with Arewa politicians,” adding that those involved in the act should cover their heads in shame as their “duplicitous character will never endear them to the oppressor.”
He said: “There remains only two constituencies to blame for this and they are Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Igbo governors. Their repeated silence over the slaughter of their own people makes them accomplices.”
“Those agitators romancing with Arewa politicians by night, but jump up during the day to shout Biafra must cover their faces in shame. Their duplicitous character will never endear them to the oppressor.”
“We are asking the Nigerian government to focus its military hardware and fire power on Fulani terror herdsmen in Benue and other Northern terrorist groups active in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.”
“The senseless killings of unarmed Biafra agitators must stop because it will only breed more diehard activists that may choose to abandon the non-violence stance of IPOB. One day, violence will surely beget violence if this ongoing anti-Biafra persecution is not stopped.”
