Secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Monday, described Igbo leaders who visited President Muhammadu Buhari a day after the May 30 violent clash as Igbo traitors.
A statement signed by the group’s coordinator, Clifford Iroanya, noted that the group will decide on how best to deal with the traitors for not condemning the murderous acts of President Buhari.
In a similar vein, the IPOB in Spain has condemned the killings, saying it was premeditated and unwarranted.
The group made this known in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Mazi Uchenna Asiegbu.
“The massacre, the maiming and forceful displacement of unarmed peaceful people of Biafra on a day we were remembering the atrocious genocide of the same government is utterly unthinkable and absurd.”
“The account of what took place across the Biafra land that day is condemnable by any conscientious average person. It is expedient and expressly essential for the office of the Directorate of State, Indigenous People of Biafra, to state categorically that the acts so meted out on our kiths and kin at home is nothing short of an apparently premeditated, unwarranted and extra-judicial killing of our people, men and women, young and old, even sparing the pregnant of this inhumanity was not the case.”
“As if the killing was not enough, they went all out to fabricate all manner of allegations and accuse the IPOB of being violent. Their deed certainly cannot be justified, and it leaves many unanswered questions.”
“They harassed and gruesomely murdered innocent citizens without sparing even the most vulnerable like the pregnant women. All was executed to please the President of Nigeria and other Igbo haters and came out to defend their callous and unprofessional action with their outdated extant Rule of Engagement, RoE, given self-defense as claimed by the 82 Division Nigeria Army.”
