IPOB berates security agencies over Enugu killings, vows to fight back

By Lawrence Njoku, Enugu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has lampooned the police and other security agencies over the ethnic cleansing in the South East while turning blind eye to the killing of innocent people by Fulani herdsmen in Enugu State.

In a statement, yesterday, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, claimed that no fewer than eight persons, including a pregnant woman, were killed and several others injured on Sunday night, when suspected Fulani herders invaded Ogbuji community in Isi-Uzo Local Council, Enugu.

The incident, according to him, was the second in the council, as the herdsmen had earlier attacked Eha-Amafu community.

Entitled ‘Fulani killer herdsmen slaughtering farmers in Enugu State will be taught a lesson in the language they understand’, the IPOB statement reads:

“The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by terrorists masquerading as herdsmen have, once again, exposed the hypocrisy of the Nigerian military, police and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Biafrans.

“The same Nigerian security agencies hunting the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) are watching Fulani herdsmen as they continue their killing spree across Biafra land. Instead of halting these genocidal attacks against innocent Biafrans, the security agencies take pleasure in hunting and killing our volunteers defending our ancestral land.”

The unchallenged massacre of innocent Biafrans at Eha-Amafu on Wednesday morning by the security agents, IPOB added, is another confirmation of the role of the Nigerian security agencies in the Fulani agenda in Nigeria.

IPOB, therefore, reminded the suspected “Fulani jihadists” masquerading as herdsmen and their mentors that they would not succeed in Biafra land as long as it exists.

It threatened: “Our gallant men will again teach them in the only language they will understand.

We did it before and they attested to that, and we shall do it again. Since the Nigerian security agencies have chosen to provide cover for known terrorists killing law-abiding and innocent citizens, it has become an existential duty on IPOB to keep defending our ancestral land, no matter the cost.”

“The army, police and Department of State Services (DSS) are quick to use their bombs and tanks against us, but look the other way when Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen embark upon their pillage and massacre of innocent Biafrans.”
