The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Wednesday raised alarm on what it described as a state sponsored criminal abduction, kidnapping, torture and execution of defenceless citizens by the Fulani terror-herdsmen in Enugu.
A statement by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said there has been unprecedented state terrorism against innocent civilians in Nike area of Enugu State.
According to him the captives have reportedly been moved to an unknown location for possible execution by a combined team of Nigerian Army and Police.
The statement reads in part: “We are placing all diplomatic missions to Nigeria, especially the United States, European Union and African Union, on notice with regards to their obligation to report these levels of unimaginable atrocity by the Nigerian state against Biafrans to their home countries and relevant agencies.
“We are also holding Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi personally responsible as the chief security officer of Enugu State for this brazen and illegal attempt to execute dozens of innocent people for no apparent reason.
“The, see no evil hear no evil, Nigerian media and populace is hereby officially informed of the heinous crimes their government is committing in Enugu State on their behalf, should they wish to distort the story at a later stage. It is in the best interest of all that all those abducted are released immediately.”
