Indigenous People of Biafra has advised the Coalition of Northern Groups against embarking on killing any Igbo, saying they should not start a fight that would not end in the country.

The Biafra agitators made this known while responding to threats made by the CNG that it would retaliate the alleged killing of their kinsmen in the South-East

IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, told Punch on Tuesday night that they had no hand in the alleged killing of a Hausa woman who was with her children.

“We have many things in our hands to respond to this group called CNG because they are non-issues; we are expecting them to start killing in Nigeria and see our position.

“We remain peaceful in our pursuit for Biafra freedom and if they could not call the criminals they brought in our land and thinking we can run for them, they are jokers, let them start this fight and see what the end will look like.

“IPOB has nothing whatsoever to do with the death of a Hausa woman who was with her children on Sunday and we strongly condemn the dastardly act by criminals sponsored by Northern politicians.

“Before they threaten us, they should, first of all, remove those terrorists and bandits transferred into Obinze barracks in Owerri, Imo State where they operate from and they were brought to kill and murder and blame it on peaceful IPOB and ESN.

“The ESN (Eastern Security Network) does not work like bandits and terrorists because we know what human blood represents. The killers of this woman and children were Fulani terrorists and jihadists they transferred into military barracks and want soldiers to protect them.

“They are sharing them with ID cards to operate and the world must ask the military why they were giving these terrorist cards for identification.
“The army was giving them coverage, if these people kidnap, the military will provide them with a place they will keep their victims and bring someone who will receive ransom from victim relatives or family members.

“The type of killing going on in our land now is the type Fulani terrorists kill and type of beheading. There is no iota of truth in what they are saying that IPOB hates Hausas living in our territory. What IPOB is after are Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen who are raping our mothers, wives, and sisters in our bushes and forests,” he explained.
