The Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPoB, allegedly gave the Nigerian Army the order to drive out the IPoB and the Eastern Security Network, or ESN, from the state’s Ohafia, Isiukwuato, Umunneochi, and Bende Local Government Areas. Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, a former governor of Abia State and the senate candidate representing Abia North Senatorial zone, is accused of giving the order.
The pro-Biafra group also informed Senator Kalu that while they have nothing against anyone issuing an order against it, they are still expecting him and the Nigerian Army to carry it out. They added that it is not enough to simply issue an order; it is also important to follow through with it.
In a statement titled “ESN ready for Orji Uzor Kalu in collaborative efforts with Nigerian Army to wipe those defending our bushes and forest areas against terrorist herdsmen,” IPoB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, claimed that numerous governors and elements from the South East had previously tried unsuccessfully to neutralize ESN so that their masters would have sent their terrorists for the occupation of Igbo land. Instead, the military only succeeded in killing innocent civilians.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) released the following statement to the public: “The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, under the governance and authority of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, desire to let the public understand that IPoB authority and participants have been familiar with the risk from former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, in which he has given a command to the compromised Nigeria security agencies to wipe, “IPoB has nothing against somebody making such a threat, but making an order and carrying it out are two different things. We have a time period that Orji Uzor Kalu has given us, and we are prepared for him and his other travelers when they arrive. After the attack, Orji Uzor Kalu will pay because he will realize that IPOB is not a pushover. “Many dishonest governors and South East elements have attempted to weaken ESN in the past so that their Caliphate masters will deploy their terrorists to conquer our territory, but they have failed. In contrast, the tainted military killed innocent civilians.
We shall confront Kalu, the former governor of Abia, and those he intends to deploy to strike IPoB-ESN in Ohafia, Isiukwuato, Umunneochi, and Bende, the Local Government Areas he named in his popular films posted on social media, if they attempt to attack us this time. “Anyone who knows Orji Uzor Kalu, his partners, friends, and family must advise him to stay away from ESN activities because, while serving as governor of Abia State, he brought Fulani terrorists into our country. If he persists, however, we are prepared to subdue him and all of stooges of the Fulani Caliphate. “They should question why the Caliphate hasn’t utilized fighter jets even against terrorists and criminals in the North but they want to deploy adversaries and fighter jets to bomb ESN who defend their moms and sisters in our jungles and forests from invading Fulani terrorists.
We cannot afford to enable Orji Uzor Kalu to reintroduce Fulani terrorists posing as herders into our bushes, hence IPoB-ESN is defending our bushes and woodlands so that our people can quietly grow in their farmlands in the wake of terrorist attacks in those areas. “Orji Uzo Kalu cannot manage to trade with the blood of our people to further his petty political ambitions. He must be stopped, and we in IPoB must defend our people from homicidal Fulani terrorists. Orji Uzor Kalu and his APC traveling companions in the South Eastern Region were responsible for the issue at Lokpanta and numerous kidnappings on the Umunneochi and Isiukwuato routes.
