Enugu killings: Fulani herdsmen will be taught lesson in language they understand – IPOB
The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has warned that they will teach Fulani herdsmen lesson in the language they understand following the recent killings in Enugu State.
IPOB gave the warning in a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful.
In the statement titled “Fulani killer herdsmen slaughtering farmers in Enugu State will be taught a lesson in the language they understand”, Comrade Powerful regretted that Fulani-controlled Nigerian security agencies are hunting for the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), while watching Fulani herdsmen in killing spree across the South East.
He said: “The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen, have once again exposed the hypocrisy of the compromised Nigeria military, police and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Biafrans by the Fulani.
“The same double-faced and Fulani-controlled Nigerian security agencies hunting for the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), are watching Fulani herdsmen as they continue their killing spree across Biafra land.
“Instead of halting these genocidal attacks against innocent Biafrans, the compromised and complicit Nigeria security agencies take pleasure in hunting and killing our volunteers defending our ancestral land.
“The massacre of innocent Biafrans at Ehamufu in Enugu State Wednesday morning unchallenged by the security agents is another confirmation of the criminal role of the Nigeria security agencies in the evil agenda of the Fulani in Nigeria.”
Emma Powerful noted that the barbaric attacks on the hapless people of Eha-amufu and Ogbuji communities in Isi-uzo local government has proven that Nigerian soldiers singular agenda in Biafraland is to distract the ESN and IPOB.
He said security operatives create the environment for Fulani Herdsmen to continue with their land grabbing tendency and atrocities against Biafran communities.
He stressed: “We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, therefore, want to remind the Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen and their partners in crime that they won’t succeed in Biafra land as long as we exist.
“Our gallant men will again teach them in the only language they understand. We did it before and they attested to that, and we shall do it again.
“Since the Nigeria security agencies have chosen to provide cover for known terrorists killing law-abiding and innocent citizens, it has become an existential duty on IPOB to keep defending our ancestral land no matter the cost.”
He noted that the army, police and DSS are quick to use their bombs and tanks against ESN/IPOB but look the other way when Fulani jihadists masquerading as Herdsmen embark upon their pillage and massacre of innocent Biafrans.
He said that “Enugu state governor and other politicians including traditional rulers has suddenly gone blind, deaf and dumb over the killing of innocent citizens in the state”.
He asked: “Where is their forest guard nonsense which he set up obviously to fight ESN?
“Where is their ‘Ebube Monkey’ joke which their masters compelled them to set up as a counter force against ESN?
“Now that pregnant mothers are being killed, their stomach ripped open and the foetus ripped apart, where are politicians and stakeholders in the state, the Chief Security officer of Enugu State and all the security apparatus set up?”
Comrade Powerful wondered how most politicians and stakeholders are not protecting citizens from Fulani terrorists attack in the hands of this killer squad sent to eliminate innocent people.
He assured that IPOB and ESN will not allow that to happen as they are going to display their might to Fulani terrorists in every part of Biafra.
