IPOB laments killing of 1 000 members since Kanu's arrest

11 February 2016, 17:30

Delta - The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) has revealed that over 1 000 members of the group have been publicly and secretly killed since their leader, Nnamdi Kanu was arrested and detained.

The IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful made the disclosure while addressing newsmen in Nnewi after their meeting to review their activities and to determine options that will be followed to check the incessant killing of the members for engaging in peaceful protests.

He said the group is wonders what soldiers and policemen who are killing their innocent members because they embarked on peaceful demonstration to demand the unconditional release of their leader and director of Radio Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, are doing in the South East when their marksmanship is needed in the North East to check the activities of the Boko haram insurgents who are killing people on daily basis.

“The case of our leader has exposed the emptiness of APC government in Nigeria and some former presidents of Nigeria who are supporting the extra judicial killing of harmless IPOB members who have not carried guns or any dangerous weapons for a day.

“We know the activities of a former president of Nigeria who has been visiting and interacting with the Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, on how to deal with IPOB members in Abia state.The former President has been romancing with the APC and we are looking forward to seeing him declaring for APC. Let him be bold enough to do that instead of working with Abia state Governor to push out IPOB members for their pay masters in APC. We know their role in the killing of our members and very soon we will ask them questions.

“We must make sure that all the past and present Nigerian presidents who are killing our members extra judicially are tried for genocide. The international community is watching. They should remember what happened to the former President of Liberia and his Ivorian counterpart who were killing people while in office, and now nemesis has caught up with them. They are answering questions on the people they killed and the same thing will happen to these heartless Nigerian leaders who are not anything better than the Boko Haram insurgents because of their approval and order to the security agencies to shoot at sight, IPOB and other Biafra agitators and people who embark on protest to air their grievances,” he said.
