IPOB PRESS RELEASE,
The reckless and unguided statement from Nigeria Vice President Alhaji Shettima, who said Tinubu's government will end insecurity in the Southeast, is an indication that Tinubu's government is planning a genocide against Ndigbo. Moreso, it is a smart way of diverting attention from the genocide his boys are committing in Plateau State. The founder of terrorist and sponsors can deceive or divert the attention of some gullible Nigerians but not the IPOB movement led by the indomitable and unbreakable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the Great.
In a recent visit of the Vice President to the country home of the Deputy House of Representative, in Bende, Abia State, the Nigeria Vice President was quoted as saying that Tinubu's government will end terrorism in the Southeast. The hypocritic vice president didn't condemn the barbaric murder of innocent Christians in Plateau State by his boys, the fvlani terrorist herdsmen nicknamed, bandits, but had the temerity to talk about State sponsored insecurity in the Southeast. The whole world knows that the Southeast has been the most peaceful region in the zoo called Nigeria, according to the United Nations peace index report. Those responsible for the violent crimes and kidnappings in the Southeast are the Federal Government of Nigeria's sponsored Fvlani herdsmen bandits and some misguided Igbo criminals hired just to blackmail Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB movement. However, if Tinubu's government has found it worthy to restore peace in Alaigbo by calling their recruited criminals and their Boko Haram security outfits to order, that will be a welcome development.
The only way Tinubu can stop insecurity and insurgency in the southeast region is to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Every Dick and Harry need to calm down and start checkmating the criminals in our mist. This event held in the personal house of the Deputy House Speaker in Bende is an APC political party or jamboree to congratulate themselves of rigging themselves back into state and local governments. Hope Uzodinma had done the same in Owerri three months ago, Dave Umahi did it in Ebonyi state during his term as governor of that state. All these did not work because it was political show-off or jamboree by APC politicians and their governments.
There will be no peace in the southeast until Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released. The following conditions should be met:
1). They should release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS solitary confinement because everyone in the Southeast is behind him.
2). Withdraw all Fulani herdsmen and order them to desist from killing our people and taking our farmlands, raping, and attacking Biafran communities in their bid to forcefully occupy our land for grazing their animals and to stop displacing the indigenous people from their lands all over Nigeria but in Biafra territory, in particular.
3). Stop all the military and police checkpoints stationed across Alaigbo to harass, extort, kidnap, and kill innocent Biafrans at any little provocation. Until these dangerous checkpoints on our roads are removed, there will be no peace.
4) Release all the IPOB members abducted unjustly by the Nigeria DSS and taken to the North And placed in dungeons of the army, the police, and DSS. There will be no peace until these are done.
5). The northern oligarch must stop insisting on imposing criminals and murderous individuals on us as Igbo political leaders, like Nyesom Wike and others. The gathering of PIPE-P is a gathering of political vultures and have no different agenda from their predecessors who have displayed such political wickedness during their tenure in the past.
It is said that charity begins at home. We expect that the Vice President Alhaji Shettima address the murderous activities of Boko Haram and other terrorist groups ravaging the Northern Nigeria before addressing the menace of their state-sponsored criminals in Biafraland. He can't claim innocence and ignorance of the activities of the wahhabi terrorists in the North. Alhaji Shettima was among the Northern elites who sponsored and propelled the Islamic Jihadist movement in Nigeria. The idea of blackmailing Ndigbo with the State sponsored insecurity while hiding their marauding jihadists and terrorists boko haram is dead on arrival.
The deceptive statement from the Vice President, Alhaji Shettima, should be a source of concern to Ndigbo. Every Biafran should understand that the fulanization agenda is still much on course.
Shettima, you can only deceive those political jobbers, not intelligent people like IPOB members. The recent massacre of Christians in Plateau State is a pointer for what is to be expected from the Jihadist government of Nigeria. The unfortunate statement from Alhaji Shettima is a pointer that the Jihadist government in Nigeria perhaps has concluded plans to commence a long-awaited ethnic cleansing agenda against Ndigbo in the name of quelling insecurity that they created in Biafraland. Ndigbo should be careful and not be carried away by the divide-and-conquer tactics of the government.
The federal government of Nigeria and its media strategy are used to hype up the insecurity in the East while playing down the terrorist activities in the North. There have been bubbling peaceful Christmas season activities in the East on Christmas Day and throughout the season of Christmas. On the contrary, there had been a massacre of Plateau Christians by Fulani terrorists disrupting the season's festivities for those Christians. The more they try to demonize Ndigbo, the more our God vindicates us.
If there is a region of terrorism concern, it should be the Northern region of the damnable Republic of the an!mal kingdom known as Nigeria, not the Southeast region.
If indeed Tinubu's government is serious about addressing the insecurity in the East, the antidote to that manufactured insecurity is the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. If Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released today, the double agents terrorizing Alaigbo will have no more justification for using his name in their criminalities. But the idea of intimidating the Supreme Court Justices to use the instrumentality of laws to illegally detain Mazi Nnamdi Kanu so that the government can buy time to unleash more blackmail on IPOB will be resisted. It is unfortunate that Nigeria's Supreme Court Justices condemned the Federal Government for the illegal abduction and extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu yet lacked the courage to deliver justice. The weakness and cowardice that the Supreme Court Justices displayed in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu have shown to the world that Nigeria is a pariah state.
Any time you hear such a bloody statement from a terrorist sympathetic government against Ndigbo, they are up to something no good.
Therefore, IPOB is warning Tinubu's government to abort any plans of military invasion of Biafraland or of sending their foot soldiers, the Fulani bandits, and herdsmen, to start mass killings in the Southeast IPOB volunteers and ESN will always defend our land against murderous criminals.
