The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that Boko Haram, Ansaru terrorists, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) and bandits’ main target is to Islamize Nigeria and to also kill Biafra soldiers.
The pro Biafra group made the claims in a statement released on Saturday, June 2 by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, Naija News reports.
According to Powerful, the terrorists have made the Igbos their enemy because they halted their plan to Islamize the Southeast and Nigeria as a whole.
He also alleged that Fulani military men have been drafted in the North to eliminate the Igbo-speaking people, urging the South-South and South-Eastern people living in the Northern region to be more careful.
According to IPOB, late Nigerian economist and elder statesman, Obadiah Mailafia had hinted about the events unfolding in the country but was killed for voicing out.
IPOB’s statement read: “The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu condemn the recent pre-planned attack by bandits, Boko Haram, Ansaru and ISWAP terrorists that consumed the lives of young Igbo soldiers and (Christian) Military officers who recently passed out from the Nigerian war training college at Jaji Kaduna state.
“We are advising Igbo citizens living in the North that they must be very careful because their lives are not safe, and the Fulani military men drafted in the North were instructed to eliminate the Igbo people, and they will blame it on bandits and terrorists. The soldiers drafted to the South East are all repented Boko Haram terrorists and recruited into Nigeria army, and their locations for attacks were designed and mapped out to be in the South East and the area of northern Nigeria where Igbo people are resident. Southerners living in Northern Nigeria will fall victims of these planned attacks.
“The late Obadiah Mailafi of blessed memory gave a chilling revelation of the plan to overrun Southern Nigeria through the use of Fulani terrorist Herdsmen, Boko Haram, and ISWAP before the Fulani government of Nigeria killed him with poisonous chemicals. He warned that the Fulani has prepared to start a civil war in Nigeria in 2022 before the 2023 elections; therefore everyone should be careful and prepared for the jihad that is about to start.
“Igbo people are the target because they stopped Fulani from Fulanizing Nigeria and deepening their Korean into the Atlantic ocean via the Eastern region at the very projected time.
“That single plan to start a war in Nigeria made them instruct and put Igbo soldiers where they will be murdered by bandits and terrorists that they formed and equipped.”
Powerful stressed that the Biafra agitators would not back down from stopping the Fulanis from Islamizing the country, saying any formula the terrorists apply will consume them.
“All Biafrans must join hands with IPOB to restore Biafra because without Biafra being a Free Sovereign and Independent Nation, we are doomed being in this failed contraption called the Zoological Republic of Nigeria,” he added.
