The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has descended on the Fulani group, the Miyetti Allah, over a recent comment by one of its leaders, Saleh Alhassan who linked the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and his supporters to be members of the group.
Reacting through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the Igbo group has described the comment as laughable disgraceful, insisting that Obi’s desire is completely different from theirs.
Powerful further said the Fulani cattle herders have continued to use the growing support of Obi’s supporters to blackmail him.
He said “IPOB knows that these terrorists masquerading as cattle herders’ constantly linking Peter Obi with IPOB and Biafra agitation are doing so because of their hatred against Igbos and their fear for Biafra.
“They never linked their Fulani presidential candidates to Boko Haram terrorists and Bandits even when it is evident to all that they are co-sponsors of these terror groups.
“Miyetti Allah, a known terrorists supporting and terror sponsoring group that the current Fulani Presidency of Nigeria elevated and stylishly glorified to the 4th level of Government are not well informed to know that IPOB does not engage in seasonal jamboree and selection process called Nigerian election.
“IPOB cannot drag its hard earned reputation to the mud of the farce called Nigerian politics. We have no interest to legitimise the Nigerian flawed political system by coming down to the level of their crooked and retarded political aberration taking place in and done by politicians.
“Peter Obi is involved in and playing the dirty Nigerian politics while we in IPOB play advanced internationally accepted politics targeting Biafra Referendum. Therefore, Caliphate and their terrorists attack dogs in Miyetti Allah should face their political opponent and stop linking Peter Obi with IPOB agitation,” Powerful said .
He however added that “If Peter Obi believes in what we are pursuing he wouldn’t have come out in the first place to contest for Nigeria President.
“The Nigerian terrorist government and their brothers linking Peter Obi with IPOB agitation means they have exhausted their blackmail against Peter Obi, hence they have resulted to tribal politicking. Saleh Alhassan and his Miyetti Allah terrorist group should stop exhibiting their cluelessness and stupidity in the public because everybody knows their role in the current insecurities bedeviling Nigeria.
“Again, to say that IPOB has fallen into obedient structure is a joke taken too far and an insult to this noble movement and to the spirits of all our heroes and heroines who have paid the ultimate price for the freedom of the Biafran people and for the restoration of our Sovereignty.
“The Igbo people rallying behind Peter Obi are not IPOB members because IPOB doesn’t want the evil and murderous contraption called Nigeria to continue to exist and we must break disintegrated the Nigeria enterprise irresoective of whether Peter Obi or anyone else from the Biafran geographic space is contesting in the Nigerian farce of an election.
“IPOB is not interested in Igbo President or a Nigeria President from Biafra extraction. Our mission is simple. Nigeria must cease to exist as a country so that all the Nation imprisoned in it can regain their liberty, freedom and dignity.
“Concerning what that demented soul called Saleh Alhassan said about the killings going-on in the Eastern Region, it is on record that the Fulani are behind most of the killings. They started killing our people since 1945 till date. But everything that has a beginning has an ending,” Powerful stated. (Daily Sun)
