Police, army teamed with Umahi to kill our members in Ebonyi – IPOB
The leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Nigeria Police, Army of collaborating with Ebonyi State’s government to unjustly arrest, illegally detaining and attacking its members.
In a press statement Wednesday, signed and made public by the group’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful condemned what it described as ‘distasteful’ act queried why the joint security operatives look away from insecurity ravaging the Eastern states of Nigeria.
The statement noted that selected political leaders will come out, lament over incessant killings by Fulani Herdsmen yet, go behind to collide with same operators to kill their people, mainly, IPOB members.
The group expressed as troubling the continued killing of innocent civilians in Ebonyi state both by the state government and intruders, including herdsmen, charged the governor to stop or pay dearly for it.
The state read: “Dave Umahi and Nigerian joint Fulani army incessant and unwarranted attack against IPOB continues in Ebonyi state.”
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) find it distasteful that rather than confront rampaging and murderous Fulani herdsmen, the Nigerian army and police in connivance with some Igbo Efulefus like Dave Umahi have continued their incessant and unwarranted attacks against the peaceful family of IPOB in Ebonyi State. These attacks have been going on since the beginning of this year. We expect better from Governor Dave Umahi and his fellow Fulani slaves who come out during the day to lament Fulani impunity in our land but connive with the same Fulani killers at night- only this time in police and army uniform, to continue the federal government policy of reducing the population of Biafrans through targeted mass executions.”
“We peaceful IPOB continue to be subjected to the most unwarranted and unprovoked attacks at the hands of Fulani terror groups aided by Dave Umahi and his fellow Fulani lapdogs in our land. Those who are in the habit of telling us about the need to work with South-East governors can now see very clearly they are stooges prepared to keep sacrificing the lives of their people in a determined effort to please their masters in caliphate northern Nigeria. Our people can now understand why we don’t want to see any of these heartless evil men on foreign soil.”
“A combined team of Nigeria Armed Forces invaded the venue of a peaceful IPOB gathering in Ebonyi LGA at 5 pm on Sunday 27 October 2019 with more than 50 Hilux vans during an inauguration ceremony and opened fire on defenceless mothers and fathers without warning. Such mindless and animalistic brutality cannot happen and has never happened in the north where the top four most deadly terror groups are operating freely without restriction.”
It also revealed that the Northerner states governors are currently negotiating with people causing insecurity their states, called on southern states leaders to emulate same.
“Northern Fulani governors are busy negotiating with Fulani killers, rapists and genocides but South-East governors led by Dave Umahi are busy plotting the public execution of his people.”
“The security operatives, who are mainly northerners and led by Fulani officers, opened fire on everybody at the venue of the meeting which resulted in many casualties. 17 people sustained severe gunshot wounds while over 70 people were abducted and taken to an unknown location. If the same murderous zeal exhibited by the Nigerian army and police in Ebonyi can be exhibited in the fight against terrorism, banditry and lawlessness in Arewa north peace and tranquillity will reign. Unfortunately, Governor Dave Umahi and his collaborators continue to allow themselves to be used by Fulani caliphate to kill Biafrans. No northern governor would be as slavishly naive as Dave Umahi in actively supporting the wholesale massacre of innocent people.”
“The continued killing of innocent civilians in Ebonyi State by Fulani terror herdsmen on one hand and Fulani Nigerian army on the other is troubling. Therefore it must be considered a perfected plan by Dave Umahi and co to oppress, eliminate and prepare Ebonyi for eventual Islamic conquest all in the name of the promise of Igbo presidency.”
“This continued invasion and intimidation of Biafraland must stop. All those responsible for this attack will pay dearly for it, them and their children.”
