The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday berated the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, for linking its members to the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful submitted that Miyetti Allah was linking IPOB to Obi due to hatred for Igbos and also fear of Biafra agitation.
Powerful said it’s disgraceful that Miyetti Allah would link IPOB to Obi’s followers known as ‘Obi-dients.’
In a statement he signed which was obtained by The Eastern Updates, Powerful wondered why Miyetti has failed to link Fulani presidential candidates to Boko Haram and bandits.
The statement reads partly: ‘The attention of the global movement and noble family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership and command of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful statement credited to one Saleh Alhassan of Miyetti Allah group linking the so called Obidient Movement to IPOB.
‘Miyetti Allah is a known architect and breeder of many terrorists groups terrorizing Nigeria since Late Major General Muhammadu Buhari took over power in 2015.
‘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.’
Mr. Peter Obi’s movement has gathered some good momentum over the last few months.
