IPOB condemns killing of Christians in North, attacks by Fulani herdsmen, amalgamation of 1914
Biafra agitators

Leadership of pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has come down hard on Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, for making what they consider an ‘unfounded statement’ that Biafra agitators were armed on the day of their last anniversary.
IPOB alarmed that Arase alleged that the pro-Biafra groups were armed during commemoration of the Biafra Day on May 30 and should be disarmed, but reacting to IGP’s directive, IPOB’s spokespersons, Barr. Emma Mmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, stated that Arase is suffering from dotage because he was at the verge of retiring from service and may have lost touch with realities.
They wondered how Arase who is highly educated, would not know the difference between ‘Independent and Indigenous,’ as he alleged in his order statement to his men to clamp down on the Biafra agitators.
In flooring the IGP for the clampdown order, the group pointed out that Arase would face the International Criminal Court in Hague to answer for his crimes while in office.
“It is appalling that someone with this level of education cannot differentiate between “Indigenous“ and “Independent“ or can he attribute this stupid error to the printer’s devil? It is laughable that this retiring “quota system-based“ IGP is alleging that IPOB members were armed and that we undertook premeditated attacks on Police Officers. I hope Mr. Solomon Arase is aware that there is a case of genocide already hanging on his head at the International Criminal Court, ICC, in the Hague—Netherlands and it will worsen his case with this spewing of lies against IPOB.
“How can the Police disarm people who are not armed in the first place? By the way, did the police disarm Buhari’s killer squads who go by the name Fulani Herdsmen?
“How come you never issued any press statement when Buhari’s armed gang called Fulani Herdsmen massacred thousands of Biafrans in Agatu, Nimbo, Aba, and other areas in Biafraland? This murderous and worst-performing IGP went further to state that: “the targeted attacks on Police personnel, who have been performing their statutory functions in the most professional and civil manner since the latest resurgence disorder, portrays the IPOB activists who are orchestrating the insurrection as having crossed the threshold in their misguided attempt to test the common will of the nation,” the group fumed.
They challenged the IGP to prove that the Biafra agitators were armed on the fateful day.
“Can this decrepit and tired IGP provide any proof that Biafrans attacked police personnel and at what point in time did this so-called “resurgence disorder“ come into existence? Does this supposedly educated man know the meaning of insurrection or is he throwing out words to see which of them may stick on IPOB? Probably he is trying to make the job easier for Buhari’s Department of State Services, DSS, who have been hopelessly looking for the “smoking gun“ with which they will convince the trial Judge, Hon John Tsoho, that IPOB is a violent organization so that the Judge will uphold charge #2 in the case against the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,” the statement challenges.
The group who believes that they are innocent of Arase’s allegation, posits that nothing will stop Biafra from being actualised.
“The restoration of the nation of Biafra is an ideology and no human being born of a woman has ever defeated or exterminated an ideology. For those of you who participate in the wanton killing of Biafrans, there shall be consequences and the boundary of these consequences is limitless and can include members of your family both immediate and extended. No one takes a Biafran life and goes scot-free,” they posit.
