The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to attack suspected Fulani Herdsmen who reportedly slaughtered a pregnant woman and her husband in their home in Aziko community, Bayelsa State.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB while condemning the killing of the family, assured that the perpetrators of the heinous crime and their sponsors will regret their actions very soon.
The pro-Biafra group vowed to punish herdsmen “footsoldiers and their sponsors” behind the attacks on “Biafraland.”
“IPOB cannot allow these bloodsuckers to go free with these barbaric killings.
“We won’t allow these vampires to replicate their atrocities in Southern Kaduna in any part of Biafraland.
“Should they keep pushing us to the wall, no part of Biafra or even the country will be a safe haven for them anytime we start paying them back in their own coin.
“IPOB has been monitoring and watching them closely, and we know their evil but futile plot to possibly eliminate Biafrans. But that evil mission can never be accomplished in our life,” the group said.
Powerful restated the recent killings of innocent people at Azikoro community in Bayelsa State will show the killers and their sponsors that this present generation of Biafrans is not the same with those of 1967 and 1970.
He said: “May we remind Biafrans once again that everyone both man and woman must be prepared because the right time for revenge is fast approaching, their continued mayhem must be resisted.”
“What is happening in Southern Kaduna where herdsmen, Boko Haram, bandits and other groups are busy slaughtering innocent Christians without any hoot by government is an indication that Nigeria is already a failed state. But IPOB is ready to repel them from Biafra land no matter the cost.”
