Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has berated State Governors in the South-East Igbo region for the delay in establishing a regional security outfit to protect Ndigbo.
The exiled Biafra secessionist leader told the leaders in the South-East not to rely on the Federal Government for the protection of the Igbos.
Kanu noted that the recent letter by Chief Nnai Nwodo, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Muhammad, over the public display of AK47 rifles by Fulani herdsmen in Awka, Anambra State, had vindicated IPOB.
He noted that the letter was a confirmation of what his group had been fighting since 2012.
The Biafra secessionist leader however expressed disappointment because none of the herdsmen carrying these firearms would ever be arrested by the police because they are supported by powers from high places.
Naija Buzz News had reported that the Governors in the South-East region would be creating a replicate of the Amotekun Security Network in the South-West region.
Read Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s statement issued in a radio broadcast (as published by Emma Powerful, the IPOB spokesman)
“This is what we have been fighting against since 2012, but Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South East governors called us miscreants that must be shot on sight.”
“The same Anambra State where the Army was ordered to shoot on sight any IPOB member,is where the Fulani boys are fearlessly displaying in broad day light AK47 and Ohaneze Ndigbo President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo is writing letter to IGP to take action.
“Why is he and South East Governors complaining now, have they just woken from their slumber, is Fulani leaders and their herdsmen no more their friends why are they now justifying IPOB’s claim that the Fulani’s will come with AK47 for our people, are IPOB members and Nnamdi Kanu no more miscreants, hoodlums and war mongers who should be shot on sight.
“Why is Ohaneze Ndigbo president general complaining about Fulani boys carrying AK47 publicly in Akwa and the police in Anambra State could not arrest them, how on earth did he expect IGP or any policeman to arrest them, people who are on the same Islamization agenda that you want the Police to arrest, which police on earth will do that under this Fulani cabal administration.
“The IGP will not listen to them, they are the same people who opener their mouth to call us miscreants, hoodlums and terrorist that must be killed, they are eating their words by even mentioning that if it is IPOB that was carrying the hubs will the police keep quiet.”
“Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East Governors empowered Fulani herdsmen and their leaders to be killing Igbos, while Fulani and Hausa Governor and leaders were busy protecting their own and sponsoring them to go and conquer communities, while the South East Governor and Ohaneze Ndigbo are busy betraying IPOB and pointing where its members will be located and killed.”
