- IPOB alleged that the government has decided to kill yet another innocent person in Anambra stat
- The group however said Nnamdi Kanu, its leader shall go and commiserate with the families of the victims
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said Nnamdi Kanu will on Sunday, August 20, be at Ekwulobia, Anambra state to condole with the family of his member that lost his life on Wednesday, August 16.
Reports have it that IPOB made this known in a statement by signed Comrade Emma Powerful, media and publicity secretary.
NAIJ.com gathered that Powerful alleged that the police officers in Anambra state were acting on the orders of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
He said: ''The now seemingly regular deployment of a certain kind of Nigeria police in Biafranland especially in Anambra state since the announcement of election boycott in Biafranland starting from the gubernatorial election come 18th November this year is becoming alarming.
''IPOB intelligence unit discovered that those posted to Nigeria army and police formations all over Biafranland were ordered to kill as many civilians as possible in the hope of causing chaos in the country.
''We want to alert Biafrans, men and women of good conscience across the globe that federal government of Nigeria has decided to kill yet another innocent person in Anambra state, in the name of holy war against IPOB.
''It has been reliably gathered also that Hausa Fulani settlements in Biafraland are awash with police and army uniforms, which makes it possible for Fulani herdsmen and other terrorists to kill with impunity.
''There is a disproportionate number of Hausa Fulani police and army officers in Anambra state and other parts of Biafranland who were posted on a mission to kill innocent Biafrans.
''The order to shoot at innocent Biafrans in Ekwulobia today Wednesday 16th August 2017 came from authorities in Abuja because there is no justification for the barbaric savagery frequently exhibited by the army and police in Nigeria against the Ekwulobia incident.
''With IPOB they have failed woefully because our leader Nnamdi Kanu will be in Ekwulobia Aguata LGA of Anambra state on Sunday to commiserate with the families of the victims of the latest outrage carried out by the Nigerian police.
''The frequency of wanton brutality and cold blooded murder in Anambra state in recent times is legitimized ethnic cleansing because these crimes are being sanctioned by the highest office holders in Abuja.
''We are holding the DPO of Ekwulobia police station directly responsible for the murder of IPOB family member by men under his command.
''Also responsible are those faceless individuals hiding behind nonexistent lawyers association in Anambra state that give the moral impetus to embark on this latest round of murder.
''The Nigerian government and her security operatives have continued to bring acts of terrorism to the people of Biafra which we are morally bound to resist. Humanity must stand up now in unison to stop this state sponsored terrorism before it is too late''.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that one person was reportedly died after members of the IPOB clashed with policemen and soldiers over the anti-election campaign in Anambra state.
The incident happened on Wednesday, August 16 in Ekwulobia, Aguata local government area of the state.
