The proscribed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has accused Miyetti Allah of allegedly sending a suicide bomber to a market in Ebonyi.
In a post on his Twitter page on Tuesday, the IPOB leader urged the Fulani herdsmen group to stop fighting like cowards.
According to the pro-Biafra activist, operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) defeated them despite the alleged backing of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian security agents.
Nnamdi Kanu wrote: “Miyetti Allah should STOP fighting like cowards. Sending a Fulani suicide bomber to attack a market in Ebonyi today (Tuesday) is the height of buffoonery.
“ESN defeated you despite the might of the President, Nigerian Army and the Police supporting you.
“We are waiting for your ISWAP next.”
Naija News reports that a suicide bomber on Tuesday allegedly blew himself to pieces when a suicide vest he was wearing exploded in Afikpo town, Afikpo LGA of Ebonyi state.
A source in the area had told The Nation that the incident happened around 12noon after the bomber tried to gain entry into a Primary School.
“He made an attempt at entering Amaizu/ Amangballa Primary School but was turned back by the school security since he couldn’t justify his reason for visiting. He immediately started running inside a nearby bush before a big bang was heard,” the source said.
According to the source, residents took to their heels when the bomb exploded but later reconvened at the scene of the incident few minutes after only to discover the suspected suicide bomber laying dead in the pull of his own blood.
But the Ebonyi State Government in a statement later yesterday after denied the attack of a suicide bomber.
