The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has vowed to haunt down and kill any commanding officer of the Nigerian security agencies that kills members of his group.
Recall that a yet-to-be-identified Nigerian soldier had warned residents of Orlu town in Imo State to either relocate or be vigilant as some personnel had allegedly been given a shoot-on-sight order in the ongoing battle with the Eastern Security Network operatives.
In the audio obtained by SaharaReporters, the soldier said, “They first carried us (deployed us) to Maiduguri (Borno State). Then, 25 of us came back hoping that the matter was ended. Then they carried us to 302 Artillery, Onitsha. All of us were inside the barracks in Onitsha till 12 pm this afternoon.
“When the fight ended in Orlu, the commander now said anybody we see, we should fire them.
“I beg you, because of God, if your person is in Orlu, from now till Monday, try to inform them. Tell them to change the location for now. Immediately I left the barracks, the commander said I was going out to expose them and make sure they get me and kill me.
“See the clothes that I am putting on. I didn’t buy these clothes with my money, if you follow this line, I was given these clothes and I have kept my uniform.”
Reacting in a statement by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, Nnamdi Kanu warned that the uniform or rank of such a soldier or policeman will not shield him from the punishment.
The wanted IPOB leader added that the pro-Biafra group keeps records and takes time to act.
He said, “If you’re a commander of troops in the Nigerian army or police, hear this: That you’re wearing a uniform and adorned in a rank does not make you invincible. If any #Biafran is killed on your orders, you will be hunted and punished, sooner than later. We’re taking stock and bidding our time.”
