The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has claimed that the killings across the country was an indication of an impending catastrophic end to Nigeria.
IPOB warned that the killings would destroy Nigeria unless its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is “released from military detention” and allowed to conduct “referendum in peace”.
The group said its leader foretold the persistent killings across the country.
The pro-Biafra group also faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid, saying he was coming to enthrone Hausa, Fulani supremacy over the rest of Nigerians.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the pro-Biafra group said, “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu via Radio Biafra broadcasting from London foretold what is to befall Nigeria
“It should be noted that when Buhari was crying his eyes out and agonizing over whether to run for presidency for the umpteenth time; at a time when grazing reserves and cattle ranching had not even entered the lexicon of political discourse in Nigeria, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu via Radio Biafra broadcasting from London foretold what is to befall Nigeria.
“As they campaigned vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another. No! they are coming to enthrone Hausa/Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen in order to drive their ethnic domination of the south.
“When IPOB came with their message of freedom and hope, some people, probably misguided by sponsored propaganda against Biafra due to their dependency on oil and gas, came up with the narrative that IPOB was preaching hate and would cause another civil war. What those that bought into the Aso Rock lies never knew was that war had already been declared by marauding terrorists under the false cover of herdsmen/farmer clash. This blatant misrepresentation is still being propagated by BBC, Bloomberg, CNN and their likes, hence the lack of urgency from international community in tackling the menace.
“The feudal lords are not remotely worried over their open declaration and execution of a deadly covert war on the people of Middle Belt and the rest of Southern Nigeria. This same fate shall befall all Nigerians unless Nnamdi Kanu is released from military detention to lead the people to freedom and safety.”
