The Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has bemoaned what he termed the resumption of the second Biafra/Nigeria civil war, with the Nigerian Military, Department of State Services (DSS) and the police allegedly launching an all out air and land attack of the South-eastern Nigeria.

Particularly, Kanu accused the Nigerian Government of resuming the war on Thursday, February 18, by using its military fighter jets, tanks and heavy war equipment in Orlu and Orsu Local Government Areas of Imo State.

Declaring this in a statement by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, Friday, Kanu vowed that his organization will not sit idly by and watch the wanton destruction of the South-East, saying they will not hesitate to defend their ancestral land.

The statement read: “Finally, the Nigerian military has brought war to Biafra, but we shall fight to defend our ancestral land.

“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to bring to the attention of the whole world that the Nigeria military has, at last, brought war to Biafra land. Supported by other security agencies, including police and the Department of State Services, DSS, they came with military jets, tanks and heavy war equipment against us. Yes, the second Nigeria/Biafra war has begun! The WAR began on Thursday, February 18, 2021.

“The wicked Nigeria military has simultaneously launched both land and air attacks on us. After the genocidal war of 1967-1970 in which they killed over 5 million innocent Biafrans, they have come again to bomb the Biafrans under the pretext that they are hunting the gallant personnel of Eastern Security Network, ESN, guarding our forests against killer herdsmen and terrorists on rampage in our land.

“Days before the raid, they first abducted a synagogue priest, Mazi Egole and his household, branding them IPOB members. Then on February 16, they abducted Mrs Ngozi Umeadi who they learnt took care of those injured during the EndSARS protest. Not done yet, they took Dr. Stephen Irochi of Multicare Hospital and some injured End SARS protesters from Obigbo receiving treatment at the hospital.

“Orlu and its environs are now a theatre of war declared by the wicked Nigeria Government against innocent Biafrans. Scores of innocent civilians have already fallen casualty! Orlu and its neighbouring Orsu LGAs have been under heavy bombardment by the Nigeria Airforce since yesterday, February 18, 2021.

“Regrettably, this genocidal war against Biafrans has the endorsement of the Supreme Court Administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodima, who the Fulani Janjaweed Government is using in its futile desperation to actualise its Fulanisation agenda. But he, his likes and their slave masters will pay heavily for this!

“Nobody should erroneously think he is exempted from the wicked plots of our enemies. Even our treacherous political elite should know that the Fulani will not spare them after using them against their own people. Our people in the Nigerian military and other security agencies should also know that the Fulani will reward them with death after using them to fight their kith and kin. We must stand united and fight for our children! Now is the time!

“We have no choice but to defend our ancestral land. We have complained enough, written petitions but the world turned blind eyes. The media refused to give us an audience. Nobody seems interested in our story but like the Jews, we must look unto our God and courageously fight back like heroes. In the end, Biafra will come.”/SHARE THIS
