The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has acknowledged that Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari’s name on the residents of the state to bear weapons in defending themselves in opposition to the murderous bandits has justified its chief, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group acknowledged that Kanu’s main task had been to alert the Nigerian folks about defending themselves in opposition to assaults by bandits – a quest which made him to kind the Eastern Security Network, the IPOB’s militant arm.
IPOB additionally urged the governors of the South-East area to imbibe Masari’s daring step by instructing residents to bear arms in opposition to invaders.
This was contained in a press release issued by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, obtained by SaharaReporters on Saturday.
Masari had on Tuesday in keeping with a press release issued by his Director-General on Media, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, urged the folks of the state to resolve to self-help in opposition to marauders.
Reacting, IPOB’s assertion reads, “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the call by Governor Masari of Katsina State, urging residents of the state to acquire arms for self defence against the rampaging Fulani bandits in the state.
“This call by the Katsina State Governor has vindicated our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been consistently advising Nigerians and particularly Biafrans to defend themselves against the jihad Fulani terrorists.
“This is a clarion call on South-East Governors who do not understand the tactics and gimmicks which Fulani are playing in their desperation to conquer and islamise the indigenous people living in Nigeria. The politically correct South-East governors and political elite should stop living in the past. They had better wake from their slumber and decode the obvious signals of the call by Masari.
“Let Nigerians prepare because the much talked about Fulani agenda is about to be fully executed. Kanu warned Nigerians but they called him a terrorist instead of appreciating him.
“However, we can assure them that they will not succeed in Biafra land. We are prepared to repel Fulani in their quest to take over our ancestral land. IPOB is peaceful but they should not dare us or take our peaceful disposition for weakness.”
