IPOB Vows To Unmask Killers Of Anambra Lawmaker, Hausa Woman, 4 Children In Anambra

May 24, (THEWILL) – The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to the Anambra State Governor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, to capture and expose the hoodlums behind the beheading of a state lawmaker, Okechukwu Okoye.

IPOB, angered by the gruesome murder of the lawmaker and an army couple in Imo State, in a statement on Tuesday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, described both incidents as abominable in Igbo land.

Powerful also noted that the incident was intended to rope in IPOB and frustrate the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu and the actualisation of Biafra.

The group in the statement, wondered why the abduction and the killing of the lawmaker occurred a day after governor Soludo visited their leader in detention, when everybody including IPOB was rejoicing in the attempt made by Soludo to free its leader.

Powerful said: “Governor Chukwuma Soludo must prepare to meet these evil men humiliating and killing our people head-on.

“We want to also state categorically that contrary to insinuations in some quarters, the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), could not in any way have had anything to do with this abominable act.

“It is imperative to state here that enemies of Biafra freedom and traitors in our region, are seriously pulling all stunts to derail the freedom of our leader and the freedom of our dear Nation Biafra.”

Powerful has also accused the Fulani herdsmen, who he said are disguised in Nigerian security uniforms, to commit various criminal acts.

“Those pointing accusing fingers at us are the same people sponsoring the disturbing insecurity in our land. Biafra land has been infiltrated by Fulani terrorists wearing Nigerian security uniforms and operating under this guise as agents of death and destruction of Biafraland.

“It simply fits into their game plan to accuse IPOB of these horrendous crimes, having failed in their initial plan to destroy the ESN created to checkmate the excesses of these Fulani marauders hiding in our forests and bushes. But one thing is certain, IPOB will hunt these criminals down either directly or indirectly.

“Those causing confusion and terrorising in Nnewi LGA will hear from us soon, how could criminality and killing of a lawmaker bring about the independence of Biafra, which IPOB is after? These killers should vacate our land while they still have the opportunity because judgement day is fast approaching.

“IPOB is not in the business of kidnapping or car snatching and has never been and will never be and therefore, we absolutely have nothing to do with the kidnap of Okechukwu Okoye.

“These kidnappers kidnapped this man on the day the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, visited our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in the DSS custody and every member of IPOB was very happy, because he was the only Governor in the whole of Biafraland who summoned the courage to visit our leader in Abuja since his extraordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria.”

Similarly, IPOB has reiterated its resolve to protect Hausas in Igboland.

THEWILL reports that the woman, an indigene of Adamawa State, who lived in Orumba South, Anambra State, was on Sunday ambushed by the gunmen unleashing mayhem on innocent people in the South-East region.

She was murdered alongside her four children, but the motorcyclist conveying her escaped the attack.

On the same day, five commercial motorcycle riders were also killed and their bikes burnt at Onocha LGA.

Their bodies were deposited in the morgue, while the fifth one was burnt to ashes.

Reacting to the recent senseless attacks, Emma Powerful, said the northerners have “suffered” enough, and do not deserve to be targeted.

“We reiterate once again that Hausas has suffered much in the hands of Fulani like Biafrans and we will not allow any criminal to touch them again, they are free to do their businesses anywhere they like in our land and those who killed mother and children of Hausa extraction to be ready and wait for us, we are coming for them.

“So, it will be an irony to accuse IPOB that welcomed the courage of Gov Chukwuma Soludo in visiting our leader when his brother governors are too afraid to do so. What is going to benefit us by killing the Governor’s lawmaker? What will be our gain in such wickedness? IPOB does not give life and we don’t take life.

“They should stop dragging IPOB into something we know nothing about, because of their hatred for us and their desire to scuttle the freedom of our leader and freedom of Biafra Nation.”

Also, Powerful revealed that its M-branch has uncovered a plot by the government to destabilise Anambra State and replicate a similar insecurity situation witnessed presently in Imo State.

“They are not comfortable with the genuine efforts by Soludo to secure the release of our leader. They just want to frustrate and distract him by making his state ungovernable the way they did with Hope Uzodinma in Imo State. They only want to divert his attention by trying to rope in IPOB into their evil enterprise.

“For the umpteenth time, the ongoing senseless killings going on in Anambra State are not by IPOB or ESN operatives, so our people must be ready for these terrorists because Fulani terrorists masquerading as Nigeria security agents, have systematically declared war against us and we must unite against them.

“They began by burning houses and properties of our people and have now fully graduated into kidnappings and beheadings of our brothers and sisters in our own domain, the killings of Biafrans and gruesome beheadings of the victims will lead to unimaginable results soon.

“IPOB/ESN cannot behead our brother and dropped notes bragging that we are behind the gruesome murder. The world should take note of the similarity between the beheading of this lawmaker and the way they gruesomely murdered the two army couple last month”, Powerful stated.
