IPOB, in a separate statement, yesterday, also told the rampaging Fulani herdsmen wreaking havocs in different parts of the country especially agrarian Christian communities that their secret agenda to Islamize Nigeria would not succeed.
This was contained in a press statement released yesterday by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful, while reacting to the recent invasion of Nimbo in Uzo- Uwani community by herdsmen.
According to IPOB, the main motive behind the orgy of attacks on Christian-dominated Southern communities by Fulani herdsmen is to destabilise Christians in the affected areas to pave way for full Islamization of the country.
The pro-Biafra group, however, said that the evil plot would not succeed but advised Christians in the country to be vigilant and unite against the antics of the herdsmen and their sponsors.
His words: “They tried this their Islamisation agenda before during the era of Usman Dan Fodio and Ahmadu Bello, but they did not suceed and they did it again in 1966-1970 when they decided to kill Biafrans from two years up. We know that they will still fail again.
“To Christians in this country, are you still waiting for the total Islamisation before you do something? This is the time to take our destiny in our hands before what happened to the Christians in the North Africa and Turkey happens to you.”
IPOB mocked the security operatives for their inability to stem the tide of herdsmen menace across the country, wondering why they are not using similar force used against protesting Biafran agitators!
“Now, the Hausa/Fulani Boko Haram terrorist group under the guise of herdsmen are killing, raping our women and girls, destroying our farmland and kidnapping our people with impunity on daily basis yet nobody is saying anything because the victims are Biafrans. The DSS will never come up with their concocted intelligence report again. Let the world hear it now,” they stated.
IPOB also criticised a Northern governor for his anti- Christian policies and actions, saying his activities give morale to herdsmen.
“Let them go and see what the governor of Kaduna State is doing to the Christians in that state and their master in Aso Rock is not saying anything because it is a strategy to Islamise the Biafrans and Christians. While Fulani herdsmen kill hundreds all around the country daily, we remember this tweet from “@elrufai never forget” – anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.”
