The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by the detained Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that Fulani people have devised another means of attack against Christians, churches, and non-Muslims in the South East.
Warning Christians and the general public to always be on the alert, the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, stated, on Tuesday, that they got the information from their intelligence unit ‘The M.Branch.’
He alleged; ‘The Nigerian government is transferring bandits and terrorists as fake Christians into the Eastern region in readiness to unleash deadlier terrorist attacks than the one they perpetrated at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State recently.
‘We advise Christians and other religious leaders to sit up, be on the alert and be security conscious as strange worshippers of non-Igbo ethnicity would infiltrate their midst to commit havoc. They must be on the look out for Fulani-looking persons that may come to join them, pretending to have converted to Christianity. Do not be deceived into thinking that Fulani don’t speak Igbo, dress like Igbo and behave like indigenes. So many of them were born and brought up in Igboland and they know not just all nooks and crannies, they also understand all Igbo events and seasons.
‘These terrorists and bandits have flooded South East, especially the commercial cities like Aba, in Abia State, where Pastor William Kumuyi had chosen for his aborted crusade.
‘They now attach Christian names to their names as religious tricks to have you accept them.’
Meanwhile, Amaka Ekwo who is a former Press Secretary to Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has on Tuesday, urged the separatist group to support the 2023 general elections in the Southeast instead of raising hell to disrupt and boycott the elections.
Ekwo urged IPOB to encourage people of the Southeast to participate in the 2023 elections.
She said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, would be disadvantaged in the 2023 elections if IPOB prevented the Southeast from participating in the general election.
