The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has written to the executive governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo over the incessant killings in the state.
The secessionists in a statement addressed to Soludo through its spokesman, Emma Powerful, asked the governor to speak up against the slaughtering of innocent citizens of the state.
IPOB claimed that the group in collaboration with the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) were making an unrelenting effort to knock down those perpetrating criminalities in the region.
The Biafra agitators alleged that the ‘Fulani-controlled’ military are responsible for the killings in Ogbaru and Nnewi South Local Government Areas of the state.
IPOB stressed that Governor Soludo’s silence could only mean that he is following the footstep of his Imo State counterpart, Hope Uzodimma, who is allegedly using the military to kill his people.
Powerful in the statement dated Sunday, July 3 admitted that although “there are some pockets of petty criminals in the State as obtainable elsewhere in Nigeria. It is not enough reason for the Nigerian military to randomly be slaughtering our people like chickens.
“The military started shooting innocent people sporadically on the road and some were gunned down in their homes in Ogbaru and Nnewi South.”
“Soludo are you aware of the military exercise? Is this kind of military depopulation of your people part of the deal you entered with the enemies of Ndigbo before being voted into office as Anambra governor last November?” IPOB asked.
