What We Will Do To Hausa/Fulanis If Any Igbo Is Killed In North – IPOB Reveals
IPOB, while issuing the threat warned the North that, “Biafrans of today are not the same breed as those they massacred in 1967 and 1970 at will, without retaliation.”
The pro-Biafra group also cautioned Arewa youths, saying they should be more civil in their utterances because “threats and intimidation do not work with IPOB.” This was contained in a statement signed by the spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful.
IPOB also lashed out at the Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso for asking Igbo leaders to publicly denounce the secession struggle.
Kwankwaso had over the weekend asked leaders of the South East to denounce those clamouring for Biafra in a bid to show sincerity to Nigeria’s unity.
Reacting to Kwankwaso’s call, IPOB in the statement said no Igbo leader allegedly “handpicked by Hausa-Fulanis in Aso Rock” can stop its struggle for secession.
Read full statement below;
“The Indigenous People of Biafra has berated former Governor Kwankwaso of Kano state for asking Igbo leaders to disown Biafra agitators and campaigners to show sincerity to Nigeria unity, as if the so called Igbo leaders feels can influence the activities and leadership of Biafra agitators like IPOB.
“We condemn the statement credited to Kwankwaso that he does not understand the working, what IPOB stands for, including its agitation for the restoration of Biafra.
“IPOB and its leadership worldwide led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not working with the so called Igbo leaders, we believe that IPOB quest for restoration of Biafra are not for everyone who does not believe freedom and we are ready to work with anybody who is sincere and not those who sabotage the struggle for their selfish gain and even if they, so called Igbo leaders hand picked by Kwankaso and his fulanis in Aso rock disown IPOB and other Biafra agitating group, it will not stop the activities and determination of IPOB to achieve Biafra restoration.
“IPOB is a mass movement and they are more than all the so called political leaders in Nigeria put together because it is God ordained project, just as it is more than Kwankwaso and the people he and his cohorts are sponsoring against Biafrans of Igbo extraction in the North, but we pity them because they do not know that Biafrans of today are not the same breed as those they massacred in 1967 and 1970 at will without retaliation.
“If they try the same nonsense today they will get a dose of their senseless attacks and stupidity back. Britain should take note of the war mongering by Arewa Northern Nigeria and caution them to be more civilised in their utterances because threats and intimidation does not work with IPOB.
“Is Kwankwaso bereft of the fact and knowledge of what his so called Igbo leaders did when Gov. Willie Obiano supervised the slaughter of over 800 unarmed innocent IPOB members that attended remembrance event at Nkpor in 2016.
“Kwankwaso should be made to understand that those his Igbo leaders he is hoping to call upon to destabilise IPOB no longer matter in the society as they are the ones causing the delay in the restoration of Biafra because of their sabotage.
“We in IPOB do not care if anybody or hired group from anywhere in Nigeria, disown us, our focus is on Biafra restoration. In as much as our leader and Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra Television Mazi Nnamdi Kanu respects genuine Igbo leaders, he does not care what name the few Hausa Fulani errand boys in Igboland call him.
“He only does what IPOB requires of him to do. Our leader is focused, determined and unyielding in his quest to achieve Biafra and nothing will make him and all of us to change our minds, not even the threat by the savage blood thirsty Northern youths against Biafrans living living in the North will make us change our mind.
“Kwankwaso has just revealed to us by his statement that he is one of the numerous Northern elders sponsoring their poorly educated youths against Biafrans residing in the North and we will not tell them what will happen until any Igbo man or any other Biafran for that matter is killed as a result of their quit notice.”
