The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to avenge the death of youths, women and children allegedly murdered in Obigbo, Rivers State.
The group warned supporters of the mass killing to brace up for the consequences of their atrocities.
A statement on Friday by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are watching with keen interest, the murder of our people in cold blood in every part of Nigeria particularly in Obigbo, Rivers State, by Gov. Nyesom Wike and the Nigeria security agents who derive joy in slaughtering innocent people.
“We want to remind anybody who supports or partners Wike in murdering our people in Obigbo to brace up for the consequences of their atrocities because IPOB must avenge for the death of those innocent youths, women and even children murdered in cold blood.
“Anybody who is still in doubt of the status/boundary identity of Igweocha (Rivers State), should read the Supreme Court judgment on the case between Ikwerre and Okirika in 1958 when Wike was not yet born. Wike’s utterances on this simply portrays his ignorance. It shows that his father and uncles did not teach him history of Rivers State. Even Elechi Amadi affirmed that Rivers was part of Igbo land when he was confronted with the WACA judgment by Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and that incontrovertible truth subsists till tomorrow.
“Wike, you have started what you cannot finish because IPOB is coming and there is nothing you can do to escape judgement. Your attempt to decimate youths in Obigbo under the guise of decimating IPOB members is only efforts in futility because IPOB is so formidable that no Pharaoh can wipe it off.”
IPOB said it remains committed to restoring Biafra’s sovereignty and independence irrespective of the mounting opposition by the enemies.
It also reminded Wike that the South East and South South people are united in the cause adding that no amount of sabotage and treachery by him can break the bond of unity among the people.
