Nnamdi Kanu leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pampering terrorists, bandits and kidnappers from the Fulani tribe. Nnamdi Kanu made the remark in response to bandits’ demand of N110 million ransoms for students of the Salihu Islamiyya School in Tagina Town of Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State in the northern part of Nigeria.
Bandits had recently abducted over 200 students from the school before making such a huge demand. The bandits, who threatened to kill the students if their demands are not met by Tuesday midnight, reportedly contacted the school Headmaster, Alhaji Abubakar Alhassan, to make their demands known.
Nnamdi Kanu was angry about the development and accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pampering terrorists, bandits and kidnappers from the Fulani tribe. According to Nnamdi Kanu, Buhari knows very well that the bandits are from Fulani tribe that is why he is allowing them to continue with their kidnap for ransom without sending any military force on them because they are his people.
But for the fact that he has so much hatred for the Igbos, Buhari has decided to channel all his military force on the south east with the intention of wiping out the Igbo tribe from the surface of the earth. But we will prove to him that we are hard stone to chew.
Nnamdi Kanu also accused Buhari of planning another genocide attack on the Igbo tribe with his genocidal tweet which was deleted by Twitter. He assured Buhari that IPOB is not scared of his threat insisting that 2021 is not 1967.
He stated that IPOB has the highest weapon, machineries and manpower than the Fulani janjaweed and that the Yorubas will not side with them as they did in 1967. He went further to state that it will be a mortal kombat between the Igbos and the Fulani janjaweed.
