Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has raised the alarm over the alleged killing of farmers in Enugu State by suspected herdsmen.
IPOB said the renewed attacks in different communities of the state had exposed the hypocrisy of the military, police, and
It accused the Army, Police and the Department of State Service (DSS) of always turning the heat on its members and looking the “other way when jihadists masquerading as herdsmen …massacre innocent Biafrans
The group also berated Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, other politicians and traditional rulers of remaining mute over the killings in the state.
IPOB stated this yesterday in a statement by its Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful.,
The statement reads in part, “The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by terrorists masquerading as herdsmen, have once again exposed the hypocrisy of compromised Nigeria military, police, and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic-cleansing of Biafrans.
The same double-faced 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 compromised and complicit Nigeria security agencies take pleasure in hunting and killing our volunteers defending our ancestral land.
”The massacre of innocent Biafrans at Ehamufu in Enugu State Wednesday morning unchallenged by the security agents is another confirmation of the criminal role of Nigeria security agencies.
“The barbaric attacks on the hapless people of Eha-Amufu and Ogbuji communities in Isi-Uzo Local Government Areas have proven that Nigerian soldiers singular agenda in Biafraland is to be distracting the ESN and IPOB and thereby create the environment for herdsmen to continue with their land grabbing tendency and atrocities against Biafran communities.
“IPOB, therefore, wants to remind the jihadists masquerading as herdsmen and their partners in crime that they won’t succeed in Biafra land as long as we exist…
Since the Nigeria 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.”
