The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday, accused President Mohammadu Buhari, the APC led federal government, the Nigerian military, Department of State Services, DSS and the police of launching another civil unrest also termed “second Biafra war” in the Southeastern States of Nigeria.
Kanu alleged that the Nigerian military used fighter jets, tanks and heavy war equipment while launching the attacks which started on Thursday in Orlu and Orsu Local Government Areas of Imo State.
According to the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, Kanu, claimed that people of the Southeast would defend their ancestral land come what may.
His statement read: “Finally the Nigerian military has brought war to Biafra but we shall fight to defend our ancestral land come what may.”
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to bring to the attention of the whole world that the Nigeria military has, at last, brought war to Biafra land. Supported by other security agencies including the Nigerian Police Force, and the Department of State Services, DSS.
“I want it to be on record that they came with military jets, amored-tanks and heavy duty war equipment against us”.
“Yes, the second Nigeria/Biafra war has begun! The WAR began on Thursday, February 18, 2021” he said.
“Indeed, the wicked Nigeria military has simultaneously launched both land and air attacks on our people again after the genocidal war of 1967-1970 in which they killed over 5 million innocent Biafrans, they have come again to bomb the Biafrans under the pretext that they are hunting the gallant personnel of Eastern Security Network ESN guarding our forests against killer herdsmen and Fulani terrorists on ampage in our ancestoral land”.
“Few days ago, there was a raid, and they abducted a synagogue priest, Mazi Egole and his household, branding them IPOB members. And on February 16, they abducted Mrs NGOZI UMEADI who they learnt took care of those injured during the End SARS protest. Not done yet, they took Dr. Stephen Irochi of Multicare Hospital and some injured End SARS protesters from Obigbo receiving treatment at the hospital.
“Orlu and its environs are now a theatre of war declared by the wicked Nigeria Government against innocent Biafrans. Scores of innocent civilians have already fallen casualty! Orlu and its neighbouring Orsu LGAs have been under heavy bombardment by the Nigeria Airforce since yesterday, February 18, 2021.
“Regretably, this genocidal war against Biafrans has the endorsement of the Supreme Court Administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodima, who the Fulani Janjaweed Government is using in its futile desperation to actualise its Fulanisation agenda. But he, his likes and their slave masters will pay heavily for this!
“Nobody should erroneously think he is exempted from the wicked plots of our enemies. Even our treacherous political elite should know that the Fulani will not spare them after using them against their own people”.
” Our people in the Nigerian military and other security agencies should also know that the Fulani will reward them with death after using them to fight their kith and kin”.
“Now is the time and we must stand united and fight for our children” he adviced.
“We have no choice but to defend our ancestral land. We have complained enough, written several petitions before but the world turned blind eyes”.
And guesswhat? “The media refused to give us an audience. Nobody seems interested in our story but like the Jews, we must look unto our God and courageously fight back like heroes and in the end, a brand new Biafra will emerge.”
“No Retreat No Surrender, we will continue to defend our ancestral Land, he charged the ESN troops!
