Nnamdi Kanu ,the Founder of IPOB has accused the Nigerian military , DSS and the Police of starting the second Biafra war .
News Mail NG reports that Nnamdi Kanu alleged that the Nigerian military used fighter jets, tanks and heavy war equipment to launch attacks on Thursday in Orlu and Orsu Local Government Area in Imo State. The Biafra freedom fighter said this in a statement released by the spokesman of Indigenous People of Biafra, Emma Powerful.
In a statement by Powerful, Kanu, however, claimed that people of the Southeast would defend their ancestral land.
“Finally the Nigerian military has brought war to Biafra but we shall fight to defend our ancestral land.”
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to bring to the attention of the whole world that the Nigeria military has, at last, brought war to Biafra land. Supported by other security agencies including police and the Department of State Services, DSS, they came with military jets, tanks and heavy war equipment against us. Yes, the second Nigeria/Biafra war has begun! The WAR began on Thursday, February 18, 2021.”
Nnamdi Kanu added that the Nigerian military has come again to repeat what it did in South East Nigeria from 1967-1970 which claimed over 5 million Igbos during the Biafran war.
“The wicked Nigeria military has simultaneously launched both land and air attacks on us. After the genocidal war of 1967-1970 in which they killed over 5 million innocent Biafrans, they have come again to bomb the Biafrans under the pretext that they are hunting the gallant personnel of Eastern Security Network ESN guarding our forests against killer herdsmen and terrorists on rampage in our land.
“Days before the raid, they first abducted a synagogue priest, Mazi Egole and his household, branding them IPOB members. Then on February 16, they abducted Mrs NGOZI UMEADI who they learnt took care of those injured during the End SARS protest. Not done yet, they took Dr. Stephen Irochi of Multicare Hospital and some injured End SARS protesters from Obigbo receiving treatment at the hospital.”
Kanu alleged that the Nigerian military has turned Orlu and its environs into a theatre of war .
“Orlu and its environs are now a theatre of war declared by the wicked Nigeria Government against innocent Biafrans. Scores of innocent civilians have already fallen casualty! Orlu and its neighbouring Orsu LGAs have been under heavy bombardment by the Nigeria Airforce since yesterday, February 18, 2021.
“Regrettably, this genocidal war against Biafrans has the endorsement of the Supreme Court Administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodima, who the Fulani Janjaweed Government is using in its futile desperation to actualise its Fulanisation agenda. But he, his likes and their slave masters will pay heavily for this!
Nnamdi Kanu also warned the Igbo elite class who might be selfishly keeping mute and Igbos in the Nigerian military to expect death as rewards from the Fulani.
“Nobody should erroneously think he is exempted from the wicked plots of our enemies. Even our treacherous political elite should know that the Fulani will not spare them after using them against their own people. Our people in the Nigerian military and other security agencies should also know that the Fulani will reward them with death after using them to fight their kith and kin. We must stand united and fight for our children! Now is the time!
“We have no choice but to defend our ancestral land. We have complained enough, written petitions but the world turned blind eyes. The media refused to give us an audience. Nobody seems interested in our story but like the Jews, we must look unto our God and courageously fight back like heroes. In the end, Biafra will come.”
