The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB threaten to Avenge the Killing of their Members

The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB on Sunday [Christmas day] has thrown a warning to Nigerian Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari that the IPOB group will start to avenge the killing of their members, should the Nigerian security agencies kill any of their member again.
According to source, the IPOB made this statement available to news men in Awka, Anambra State capital, by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the IPOB group, Mr. Emma Powerful, the group warns that the era of killing it member and they wouldn’t take any action is over.
According to source, the statement read in part, “Many have paid the supreme sacrifice at Igweocha, Port Harcourt, Rivers State; Aba in Abia State, Nkpor and Onitsha in Anambra State, which Biafra and posterity will never forget. We shall honor all those that fell on this long and painful march to freedom.
“Having said this, we will not hesitate to invoke the right to self defence, should the government of Nigeria attempt to kill even one peaceful IPOB protester.
“Biafrans are, naturally, law-abiding and peaceful people without the history of conquest like any other major ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.
“The European Union and other internationally-recognized institutions in the world have taken time to study IPOB’s grievances and have come to the conclusion that the Nigerian government, headed by Muhammadu Buhari, is hell-bent on annihilating the people of Biafra.”
The group said it would not have any talk with the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari until the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“IPOB worldwide and its leadership are pleased with every effort people are making towards the restoration of the Biafra nation. We are highly committed to making sure Biafra comes under the command of our ordained leader and prophet, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“We wish to clarify that there will be no negotiation talks until our leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and other members detained illegally by the Nigerian security agencies are released unconditionally as two courts of competent jurisdiction have ruled in Abuja.”
