IPOB tells Fulani herdsmen to forget attack plans against Anambra, Imo communities

 IPOB tells Fulani herdsmen to forget attack plans against Anambra, Imo communities

The group accused Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, of being behind the planned attacks, urging concerned residents to be vigilant, while warning the herders to drop the idea.


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that some Fulani herdsmen are planning to attack some towns in Anambra and Imo states. 

The group accused Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of being behind the planned attacks, urging concerned residents to be vigilant. 

The group identified the communities the assailants are planning to raid as including Ibiasoegbe, Mgbidi, Nnempi, Orlu and Akata in Imo State, as well as Ihiala and Ubuluisiuzor in Anambra State.

In a statement made available to SaharaReporters on Thursday, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful urged traditional rulers and local authorities to mobilise their youths against the alleged attacks. 

The statement read, "The attention of the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the recent plot and plan by Supreme Court Administrator Hope Uzodinma to use Fulani terrorists in Nigerian army uniforms to attack more communities in Biafra land.

"We, therefore, want to advise the following communities to be careful and watchful against the impending evil. They must not be taken unawares.

"IPOB intelligence unit uncovered this wicked plot, hence the decision of the IPOB leadership to alert the affected communities of this impending attack. 

"The communities according to our intelligence include Ibiasoegbe Imo State, Ihiala Anambra State, Mgbidi in Imo State, Ubuluisiuzor Anambra State, Nnempi in Imo State, Orlu, Imo State, and Akata, Imo State.

"We want the traditional rulers, and other local authorities in these communities to be at alert and mobilise their youths to be vigilant and watch out against any invasion by terrorists under any guise. 

"They should mount cameras and use drones to capture the scene as evidence against these criminals who must one day certainly stand trial at the Hague. 

"We want to place our people, and indeed the world on notice of the ongoing secret genocide in Biafra land. The most annoying thing is that after committing these atrocities, the Nigerian Government and its agents of death still point accusing fingers at innocent IPOB members and the Eastern Security Network, ESN operatives.

"Our oppressors have continued their systematic killing of our youths and burning down of communities in different parts of Biafra land. mentioned here. Our people must unite against this barbarity. 

"Our enemies are not relenting. They want to continue the orgy of violence and senseless killings witnessed in the wake of the Anambra governorship election. Before the election, the oppressors and their recruited hoodlums in their desperation to take over Anambra spilt a lot of blood including that of Dr. Chike Akunyili, the widower of Professor Dora Akunyili who they eliminated because of her hard stance against fake drugs. 

"Now these agents of death are on the prowl again across Biafra land. Our people must be vigilant and resist them. IPOB will stop at nothing in ensuring our people enjoy peace and safety, especially in this festive season. We did it before, we shall do it again. 

"Biafra land must witness peace again no matter how hard the enemies try to unleash mayhem. Don't forget that soon after ESN was launched in December last year criminality went down across Biafra land but the oppressors who were embittered that Biafra was the safest place planned to destabilise the region and make it as insecure as the North. But CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA shall defend our cause."
