The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned that it will not tolerate what it called the senseless killing of unarmed Igbo youths in the Southeast states.
The position came in a statement made available to newsmen by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful on the recent killing of citizens in Anambra and Abia states.
While condemning the killings and the incessant humiliation and harassment of innocent citizens, the IPOB said the renewed killings in Igboland by the security agents have become a norm and will soon raise catastrophe in Igboland and Nigeria at large.
The statement read; “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, condemn the rampant and incessant harassment, humiliation and killing of innocent and unarmed citizens of Biafra in Nkpor Anambra state, Aba and Ohafia in Abia State as well as Warri Delta State.
“We cannot allow such barbaric killings to continue unchallenged if the perpetrators don’t immediately stop this cruelty. Any soldier, police or security personnel who takes pleasure in the elimination of life of any Biafran will be made to drink the cup of his wickedness.
“Nigeria military, Police and other security apparatus have in recent days killed more than 20 innocent citizens in Biafraland since coronavirus lockdown started. Some of the victims of this cruelty include: Mazi Ebuka Nwonye, 23, who was murdered in cold blood at Nkpor Anambra State; Mazi Promised, 46, killed at Uratta Road, Aba; Chinaemerem, also killed in Aba; and Mazi Ekene Obieze, 24, stabbed severely with a dagger by Fulani soldiers and police deployed in Biafraland who are determined to reduce our population at all cost.
“Some victims including Mazi Ekene Obieze are still in critical conditions in the hospital. As if this is not enough, the killer squad under the guise of the police SARS, murdered in cold blood, one Mazi Friday Arunsi, a middle-aged man in his home town Ebem Ohafia, Abia state that resulted in a very big uprising in Ohafia on 18th of April, 2020.
“It is ridiculous that Nigeria police and army personnel have abandoned their duties and resorted to chasing rats on the street of Ezego in Nkpor Anambra State and other several roads and streets in Biafraland, massacring innocent and unarmed citizens with reckless abandon,” IPOB said.
