The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Nigerian army to wipe out Igbos from the country.
IPOB said it was shameful that Buhari has ordered the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai to kill anyone supporting the Biafran cause instead of focusing on the Boko Haram insurgents, which had take over the northern region.
The group in a statement on Sunday by its spokesman, Emma Powerful said Buhari had sworn to wipe out Biafra citizens from the face of the earth.
The statement reads in full.
“We wish to alert humanity about the wickedly undemocratic silent Jihadi war unleashed on peaceful Biafran populations, in order to complete the extermination of the Igbo race under the pretext of military exercise in a peaceful civilian environment. This act of primitive criminal intimidation and provocation by Fulani Islamic fundamentalists in the Buhari regime, must not go unchallenged by men and women of good conscience.
“Major General Muhammadu Buhari was supposedly elected to preside over a transparent civilian democratic government. However, what we have today is an administration of Fulani ethnic jingoists and unprecedented levels of religious bigotry never before witnessed in Nigeria. This Buhari administration is the very worst kind of elected dictatorship. This latest attempt to use military show of force in Biafraland to deal with legitimate peaceful agitation for self determination vindicates IPOB position that Nigeria is irredeemably primitive and incapable of human development.
“Where on earth is it heard that combat ready troops are deployed within the borders of a country to deal with a non-violent civil matter; only in Nigeria. It makes a mockery of the role of the military and a nonsense of the constitution that soldiers can be ordered by one army officer, without the permission of the Senate, to kill civilian populations in an area devoid of any conflict. This is one of the many reasons we IPOB cannot share the same geo-political space with people that can hardly reason like humans.
“These clueless and uninformed members of APC Party in Aso Rock under the supervision of Major General Muhammadu Buhari have once again proven their undemocratic and savage nature. For Fulani Caliphate to think they can intimidate Biafrans the same way they intimidated and conquered Hausa people along with other indigenous ethnic minorities of the North, proves they are not good students of history. Previous Fulani Jihadi campaigns to conquer and subjugate Biafraland have always ended in failure, that is why Biafra has remained till date untainted by virulent Jihadi Islam unlike other coastal regions of West Africa.
