The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the rampant and incessant harassment, humiliation and killing of innocent and unarmed citizens of Biafra in Nkpor Anambra State; Aba, Ohafia in Abia State; as well as Warri, in Delta State.

The group warned that it cannot allow such barbaric killings to continue unchallenged if the perpetrators continue with the cruelty.

In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB insisted that any soldier, police or security personnel who take pleasure in the elimination of the life of any Biafran will be made to drink the cup of his wickedness.

It stressed that the renewal of killings in Biafraland by the Fulani-dominated army and police have become a norm, that if left unchecked, will soon raise catastrophe both in Igbo land and Nigeria at large.

The statement partly reads: “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 elimination of life of any Biafran will be made to drink the cup of his wickedness.

“The Nigeria military, Police and other security apparatus have in recent days killed more than 20 innocent citizens in Biafraland since the Coronavirus lockdown started. Some of the victims of this cruelty include Mazi Ebuka Nwonye, 25, who was murdered in cold blood at Nkpor Anambra State; Mazi Promise, 46, killed at Uratta Road, Aba; Chinaemerem, also killed in Aba; and Mazi Ekene Obieze, 24, stabbed severely with dagger by Fulani soldiers and police deployed in Biafraland who are determined to reduce our population at all costs.

“Some other 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 to 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 several other roads and streets in Biafraland massacring innocent and unarmed citizens with reckless abandon.”

IPOB wondered “why Nigeria army and police would prefer slaughtering lives of Biafrans extrajudicially during a time when people were facing hard time because of lockdown issued to curb the spread of Coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging the entire world.”

The Nigerian government “in its deceptive attitude refused to give Biafrans their own share of money and food stuff during this Coronavirus lockdown that is ravaging the whole world but shared palliative gifts only to the people of northern Nigeria. Biafrans were left out during this government sharing from Abuja. It is on record that the entire former Eastern region comprising the South South and South East zones are the economic backbone and power force of this cage called Nigeria,” the group said.

It added: “Nigeria government refused to include Biafrans in its COVID-19 palliative but allowed its security agents to be killing our fathers, mothers and youths who ventured to come out and look for food materials to buy for their families.”

The group urged traditional rulers, Presidents-General of Town Unions, women groups and organisations, youth associations, politicians and stakeholders in every community and state in Biafra land to advise their people never to involve themselves in the vaccine being moved around in different states particularly in Biafra land, saying, “we reject it totally.”

“We were reliably informed how money was distributed to state governors in our land to allow and lure our people into taking this deadly vaccine. We therefore warn the compromised governors to retrace their steps before it's too late. They can’t be allowed to jeopardize or sacrifice the lives of the people on the altar of politics or personal gains. A day of reckoning is fast approaching,” it added.
