Enugu - The Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) on Tuesday issued a 72-hour ultimatum to President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene and free the 76 people currently being detained in Enugu for defending their property and women against Fulani herdsmen.
The men, who are from Ugwuneshi in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State were arrested by soldiers after a clash with some Fulani herdsmen in the area.
The pro-Biafra group also demanded the immediate release of two women allegedly abducted by the herdsmen who have not been accounted for since they disappeared on their way to their farms.
The ultimatum was contained in a statement issued by the spokespersons of IPOB, Emma Nmezu, and Dr Clifford Iroanya, saying it was high time President Buhari intervened on the marauding herdsmen.
It warned that failure to heed its call would result to pushing it to bare its fangs and the world will witness the first true feel of the anger of IPOB worldwide.
The pro-Biafra group said no matter who is giving the herdsmen the courage and tacit support to act with impunity must stopped now
