Police and other security agencies have been lambasted by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over what they claimed is an ethnic cleansing going on in the South East while turning blind eye to the killing of innocent people by Fulani herdsmen in Enugu State.
IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement yesterday, title ‘Fulani Killer Herdsmen Slaughtering Farmers In Enugu State Will Be Taught A Lesson In The Language They Understand’ claimed that eight persons, including a pregnant woman, were murdered and several others injured on Sunday night, when suspected Fulani herdsmen invaded Ogbuji community in Isi-Uzo Local Council, Enugu.
The incident was the second in the council, as the herdsmen had earlier attacked Eha-Amafu community as he claimed.
The statement reads: “The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by terrorists masquerading as herdsmen have, once again, exposed the hypocrisy of the Nigerian military, police and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Biafrans.
“The same Nigerian security agencies hunting the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) are watching Fulani herdsmen as they continue their killing spree across Biafra land. Instead of halting these genocidal attacks against innocent Biafrans, the security agencies take pleasure in hunting and killing our volunteers defending our ancestral land.
“Our gallant men will again teach them in the only language they will understand. We did it before and they attested to that, and we shall do it again. Since the Nigerian security agencies have chosen to provide cover for known terrorists killing law-abiding and innocent citizens, it has become an existential duty on IPOB to keep defending our ancestral land, no matter the cost.
“The Army, Police and Department of State Services (DSS) are quick to use their bombs and tanks against us, but look the other way when Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen embark upon their pillage and massacre of innocent Biafrans,” he concluded.
