On Sunday, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, alleged the Nigerian Military of carrying out massive killing against the people of Biafra and South-East, all in the name of maintaining national security.
This came after the Nigerian military denied killing of IPOB members.
The media and publicity Officer of IPOB, Mr. Emma Powerful, who stated that the military has been killing IPOB peaceful protesters under the pretense of maintaining security.
He further noted the denial of these atrocities indicate their level of cowardice.
“The military has exhibited the greatest level of cowardice by denying that they did not shoot and kill peaceful protesters. The blood of the people they killed will continue to hunt them. They are restless and that is why they are denying the evil and senseless killings.
“The Indigenous People of Biafra condemns the relentless denial of the killing of the members of IPOB by soldiers and other security agencies.
“The denial that they did not shoot and kill peaceful protesters means that the entire Nigerian Army pretended that it did not see the barbaric crimes committed against members of IPOB during the peaceful demonstrations in Biafra land.” He said
Mr. Emma added that the footage of the crimes committed by the Nigerian soldiers against their members could be seen online.
“Prominent leaders and countries in the world and those who do not have the videos for the killings should go online and watch the heinous crime against the peaceful members of Biafra during the peaceful rallies and demonstrations in all the Biafra cities of Aba, Onitsha, Owerri, Igweocha (PH), Calabar, Uyo, Asaba, Enugu, Bayelsa and other cities.” He stated
IPOB is a group of individuals agitating for the independent of Biafra. In other to achieve this end, they have adopted various means to air their voice.
