Nigerian Lawyer Blasts Buhari Govt Over Death Of IPOB Members In Enugu

A Nigerian lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, has berated the President Muhammadu Buhari government over the attack on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a secessionist group in Nigeria.

Naija News understands that officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) clashed with members of the pro-Biafra group in Emene community primary school, Enugu state on Sunday. The clash in its wake left 21 IPOB members dead as well as two DSS operatives.

Reacting to the attack in a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Effiong “for the Buhari regime, members of IPOB poses a greater threat than Boko Haram and ISWAP”, adding that “Buhari and his surrogates have shown more hatred for IPOB than the murderous herdsmen and so-called bandits.”

The Nigerian lawyer questioned what the “worth of a Nigerian life” lamenting that “human beings have been reduced to statistics.”

Effiong tweeted: For the Buhari regime, members of IPOB poses a greater threat than Boko Haram and ISWAP. Buhari & his surrogates have shown more hatred for IPOB than the murderous herdsmen and so-called bandits. What is the worth of a Nigerian life? Human beings have been reduced to statistics.”

Also reacting to the attack during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu said henceforth, IPOB ceases to tolerate further killings of Biafran citizens across the length and breadth of Biafraland (Southeast and some parts of south-south).

The apparently furious IPOB leader added that “anywhere the Fulani Islamic army and police get involved in the killing of unarmed innocent Biafrans, they would retaliatorily be killed equally, in their numbers.

His words: “This evening, Sunday 23rd August 2020, I am giving the order that wherever a Biafran is killed, I want 100 police and army officers that perpetrated the crime, to be killed. We are no longer going to allow that impunity to continue.

“They are going to bury their own soon and that is if they will find their dead bodies. I will make sure that they will never find them. You see these Fulani idiots in our land, in eight weeks, we are not going to give them a dime.

“They think that we are going to keep quiet because we value life. “I am suspending all IPOB family meetings in Enugu and we are going to deal with these people. We own our land, you people (Fulanis) are visitors including the idiot who calls himself, a police commissioner. “You came to our land to kill our people.

“The day we will come out armed, you will be crawling on the ground. Anywhere the police or the army kills a Biafran henceforth, we will retaliate”, Kanu vowed.
