The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have accused the Nigerian government of feeding the country with fake news. The group went ahead to talk about the real identity of the unknown gunmen who have been killing people and destroying properties in the south eastern part of the country. IPOB on Wednesday expressed certainly that President Muhammadu Buhari led government is not telling Nigerians the truth.
According to IPOB, innocent people are being killed by security operatives in the south east and later tagged them as unknown gunmen because they are Biafrans. The group made particular reference to the killing of, what it described as, innocent persons in Okporo and Umutanze in Orlu, Imo State. It cautioned the perpetrators to stop the dastardly act or face mass resistance.
Speaking through a statement signed by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB accused the Nigerian army and the Nigerian police of killing people in Biafra land and burning their houses while blaming the actions on unknown gunmen. It also called on the Nigerian police to immediately release persons they picked and tagged Eastern Security Network (ESN) operatives or charge them to court.
The statement reads in part; “The Nigeria Police should stop parading innocent people and tagging them ESN personnel because nobody is missing in IPOB. Parading innocent persons as ESN operatives shows that the police and army have failed and don’t know their job anymore.
“Since government abandoned their duty to focus on dishing out false information to the public, we also are out to expose them. Those you paraded before the public are not ESN members. Nigeria must stop ridiculing herself before the world because everyone is watching her activities.
“If this secret genocide is not halted, both the perpetrators and their sponsors will be dealt with in no distant future. It is regrettable that some shameless politicians would connive with oppressors to kill their own who committed no crime other than demand their freedom from the Nigerian contraption.”
“These ‘Efulefus’ and evil politicians decided to sponsor the Nigerian army and police to attack innocent Biafrans in Orlu and other places in Biafra land, to implicate IPOB and ESN. We are warning the politicians and traitors among us supporting this evil agenda to call it a quit or brace up for the wrath of the people. We are aware that Fulani terrorists in Abuja instructed Hope Uzodimma, the Imo State governor to implicate IPOB and ESN. But we will prove to them that we are smarter. It is ridiculous to think that IPOB, which has been operating for many years, will now suddenly start killing,” the statement concluded.
IPOB earlier in the week threatened to bring down Nigeria’s economy as it doubles down on its resolve to exit the country and free their master from captivity. The group stated that every Monday of the week will be declared a public holiday in Biafra land until Nnamdi Kanu is released from the captivity of the DSS.
IPOB said this while reacting to the statement credited to the former Anambra State Governor, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, who said the sit-at-home protest planned by the group is detrimental to the southeast.
Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife had on Monday stated saying; “What do we achieve by staying at home? What do we achieve by making the South-East less secure? Who bears the brunt of it? Who suffers for it? Such actions will make investors avoid the South-East. This can make the unemployment situation get worse. So what do we achieve with all these? I should appeal to IPOB not to carry out their threats. It is not in our interest as it doesn’t help in any way.”
Reacting to Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife statement, IPOB stated saying; “Former Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife has the right to say his opinion but has no right to direct IPOB. IPOB is an institution that provides guidelines for its members.
“Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife or any other body can suggest, but if IPOB likes their suggestions we take it, but if we don’t like it we leave it,” the group stated.
The secessionist group said the abduction and extradition of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government has revealed the leaders want the country’s economy in disarray, and they would help in getting it done.
According to the words of IPOB spokesman; “Abducting Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria has completely shown that Nigeria definitely with clear evidence want their economy to be in shambles and comatose. IPOB will help them bring the economy into ruin and down unless they release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We are entitled to whatever we are doing.
“The only thing we want is the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and give us a date for a referendum for Biafra to ascertain our fate whether to continue to stay in Nigeria or not. We are sure that every indigenous nationality and tribes in Nigeria wants to opt out of this evil cage British lumped us together inside since 1914.
“We are tired of this contraption called Nigeria and continue keeping us in the hell hole will continue to bring Nigeria into disaster and economic challenges. Therefore we are calling on global leaders to prevail on Nigeria Government and her partners in crime and Fulani cabals running the country to leave us.
