Forever ready to voice its opinion, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has once again accused South East governors and politicians of betraying Ndigbo for ‘crumbs’ from the All Progressives Congress federal government.
In a statement released on Thursday by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful, the secessionist group alleged that South East governors have been compromised, hence their indifference to the attacks of Fulani herdsmen on their region.
“The first attack by Fulani herdsmen in Enugu state that resulted to the arrest of over 76 persons who were searching for the whereabouts of their loved ones after the attack, and their subsequent arrest by the security agents, particularly the police and detaining them at Police Zone 9 Umuahia and subsequently arraignment was not condemned by the South East governors and politicians, and that emboldened them for the next attack in the state of Ukpabi Nimbo community in the state.”
“If that is not the case, how do you explain a situation communities were attacked and instead of the people that attacked them being arrested, the relations and victims of the attacked were arrested and detained by a government that claim to be responsible. Yet, the state Chief executives and their politicians kept quiet and were clapping and praising the government that is humiliating their people.”
“IPOB, other Biafra actualization agitating groups expected these politicians, the governors, the National Assembly members and other South East political appointees and others close to the corridors of power to stoutly react against the injustice, but they never did.”
“Today, we are talking about another attack that claimed the lives of over 40 persons in the same state and nothing is being done to assuage the pains of the people, while a blatant lie by the Department of State Service, DSS, that five Fulani herdsmen were killed and buried in Abia State.”
“This unsettled the country, and the South East governors, and politicians were never moved by the killing of over 20 and arrest of their over 76, and now the recent killing of over 40 people at Nimbo.”
