IPOB Condemn Alleged Killings Of Innocent Igbo Youths By Military



IPOB Condemned Alleged Killings Of Innocent People

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the alleged killings of innocent people with no traceable links to criminals, by Nigeria’s joint military operation in Ogbaru and Nnewi South Local Government Areas of Anambra State.

The secessionist group, therefore, urged the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, to speak against the killings, as his “silence” showed that he is allegedly competing with the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, in using the military to kill his people.

IPOB also wondered if the governor was aware of the military invasions of the communities.

The group added that recent events showed that the governor was allegedly being persuaded and blackmailed into dancing to the tune of using the military against his people.

While the group acknowledged that the military operatives are getting rid of criminal elements in the state, it said it was not enough reason for them to randomly be “slaughtering” innocent people.

In a statement on Sunday, July 3, the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said it was unimaginable that the “Fulani-controlled” military deployed in the area have been killing innocent people, without any of the governors from the region condemning the act.

It said;

We don’t know if Soludo is aware of this military exercise or is it the Federal Government’s plans to wipe out a larger number of Ndigbo.

Yes, we are aware that there are some pockets of petty criminals in the state as obtainable elsewhere in Nigeria, but that is not enough reason for the Nigeria terrorist military to randomly be slaughtering our people like chickens. The military started shooting innocent people sporadically on the road and some were gunned down in their homes in Ogbaru and Nnewi South.

Soludo are you aware of the military exercise? Is this kind of military depopulation of your people part of the deal you entered with the enemies of Ndigbo before being voted into office as Anambra governor last year November?

Do you also derive joy seeing your people being murdered by Fulani terrorists and jihadist masquerading as Nigeria security agencies? Soludo what crimes did people of your state commit to deserve being unleashed with military and police brutality?

The group further claimed it was worrisome that the security agencies are killing the South-East youths, while the Fulani bandits are allegedly being recruited into the army and sent to the South-East.

It added that IPOB and the Eastern Security Network operatives were doing their best to stop those perpetrating criminalities in the region.

The statement read in part;

IPOB family is deeply saddened with the ongoing massacre of innocent people with no traceable links to criminals by Nigeria Joint Military in an effort to curb criminality in the East, particularly in Anambra State and Imo State.

It is unimaginable that the security agencies murder our people leaving the footprint of the Fulani-terrorist of Nigeria military yet no eastern governor has condemned or spoken out against this outrage and ethnic cleansing.
