IPOB denies killing Muslim family of four in Anambra, says culprits would be identified

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied killing Muslim family of four including a pregnant woman in Anambra and warned criminals parading in the South-East to stop killing Hausas in the region.

IPOB disclosed this in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, saying the Hausas have suffered like Biafrans, and that the group will not allow anyone to touch Hausas again.

Recall, the proscribed secessionist group was alleged to have killed a Muslim pregnant woman of Hausa extraction and her four children on Monday, May 23, 2022 along Isulo, Orumba South LGA the state.

IPOB said that Hausas have the right to walk freely and do businesses like any other person in the region.

The group emphatically stated that those who murdered mother and children of Hausa extraction in the past few days in Anambra should wait for them.

“We reiterate once again that Hausas have suffered much in the hands of Fulani like Biafrans and we will not allow any criminal to touch them again, they are free to do their business anywhere they like in our land and those who killed mother and children of Hausa extraction to be ready and wait for us we are coming for them”, the group said.

Yesterday, the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu who is in DSS custody has also demanded immediate stoppage of the senseless killings going on in the South East.

He was quoted as saying that all those behind the current killings in the South-East must be held accountable for their atrocities, saying that Ndigbo is not known for cannibalism.

Meanwhile, a Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has promised to retaliate against the alleged killing of its kinsmen in the South-East geo-political zone, the development it claimed, had been greeted with the conspiracy of silence.

The organization also threatened to boycott patronage of the media over what it termed bias by media managers on the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network.

The statement issued by the group’s spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman partly reads; “We note that hate campaigns and propaganda being conducted by created by certain interest groups in the South-East in the form of regional and ethnic agitators have emboldened the outlawed terrorist IPOB/ESN to carry out these unprovoked evictions, attacks, killings, destructions of properties and other forms of violations against northerners in various parts of the South East.

“We are particularly disturbed by the reports of the brutal murder of a mother and her four children for the only sin of being Northerners. This followed other reports that some trucks conveying goods to the South were also set ablaze in Anambra at the weekend and the drivers and other occupants were killed, injured or disappeared without a trace.

“In sets of gory video clips trending online and seen by CNG, the victims were seen lying in the pool of their blood with bullets spread around and a narrator speaking in Igbo saying, “Everybody should look at this video that they have shot a woman and her four children. They are from the North. And they are shooting everybody they see on the street; so people should be careful.

“Regrettably, we also note the manifestation of a dangerous conspiracy of silence when days after the Sunday’s killing of the Northerners without any provocation, the story has not been told by any of the national print and broadcast media despite wide coverage by the social media with graphic photos of the mayhem and condemnation by security operatives, groups and individuals.

“We have watched and studied these events carefully and with considerable restraint and maturity, to the point of condoning and accommodating several unreasonable and unacceptable actions that have been perpetrated against Nigerians collectively, and northerners in particular.

“The intrinsic bias of the media and the double standards, hypocrisy and cowardice of regional, traditional, cultural, political and religious leaders from both the South and the North have become more glaring when they condemned the Deborah incident in Sokoto but conspiratorially and deliberately decline comments on the murderous activities of IPOB/ESN terrorists including the slaughter of a legislator.

“We note also the deliberate attempt by the media and southern leaders to conceal the true identity of the murderous IPOB/ESN terrorists by concealing it as ‘unknown gunmen’ while in actual sense they are known.

“We are aware that the activities of the IPOB/ESN terror groups are supported morally and politically by the vast majority of the pliant Igbo elites, politicians, traditional rulers, business persons, and the larger population of this ethnic group. It is also a situation that feeds on the docility of the affrighted section of those who pose as Northern leaders today.

“The recent attacks have pushed matters to a point whereby silence has become complicity and inaction is no longer an option, making it impossible for us to remain indifferent or silent in the face of such extreme provocations.

“As the representatives of various interest groups from Northern Nigeria, the CNG today declares enough is enough,” the statement said.
