By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has petitioned Joe Biden, President of the United States of America, to stop arms sales to Nigeria, following the federal government’s request for the US’ help in the ongoing war against insurgency.
This was contained in a fiery petition written by IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, which accused the Nigerian government of killing Christians with arms supposedly purchased to fight insurgency.
Excerpts of the letter read: ‘President Buhari has made Nigeria the most dangerous country in the world for Christians, Jews and Nigeria’s indigenous peoples, particularly those of the former Republic of Biafra.
‘Hundreds of thousands are routinely plundered, tortured or killed with impunity by Nigerian security forces controlled and populated by Buhari’s Fulani Islamic tribesmen, often in collaboration with Fulani herdsmen (Islamist terrorist group that has been internationally branded the 4th deadliest terrorist grouping in the world).
‘President Buhari is promoting radical Islam in secular Nigeria. He has endorsed Sharia law in twelve northern Nigerian states. He has treated Boko Haram with kid gloves, releasing from detention hundreds arrested by the previous administration’, the letter read.
The letter concluded by stating that the national interests of the United States lay in protecting Christians and Jews in Nigeria, defeating radical Islam and preventing instability in West Africa which will altogether be enhanced by a US-led diplomatic pressure on the Nigerian government to – as a matter of urgency – agree to a UN-supervised referendum on Biafran Independence.
