By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The secessionist Biafra Zionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that there are ongoing plans by South-East Governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo,to generate a list of its members and those of the Eastern Security Network, to facilitate their arrest and incarceration by the Federal Government.
This was contained in a statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, a copy of which was made available to newsmen, on Saturday.
In the statement, IPOB pointed out that the plan was meant to weaken its resolve and that of the ESN from flushing the Fulani herdsmen out of the zone, adding that since the formation of the ESN, efforts to flush out Fulani herdsmen out of the zone had intensified, regretting, however, that politicians, local authorities and others were sabotaging the efforts.
Excerpts of the statement read, “It has come to the attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that South-East Governors; Ohaneze Ndigbo led by George Obiozor; treacherous traditional rulers and President Generals of some communities are secretly compiling names of suspected IPOB members and ESN operatives across Biafraland. This wicked move was suggested by the Nigeria Government and her security operatives with the hope to weaken IPOB and ESN making every effort to flush Fulani terrorist herdsmen out of our land.
“Our efforts to stop Fulani terrorist herdsmen in the East have indisputably intensified since the formation of ESN but regrettably, the politicians and government officials including local authorities in some communities in South-East are sabotaging these efforts. They have bargained with Nigerian security agencies to abduct anybody suspected to be an IPOB member or supporter.
