IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra, issued a threat to Fulani herdsmen in Enugu State on Thursday.
“We will teach them in a language they will understand,” IPOB promised.
About eight people were recently killed in the Mgbuji community of Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State.
In addition to destroying areas of crops, the herders attack also left several villagers missing.
The community people suspected the attack was carried out by Herdsmen, who purportedly blamed IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu as the reason for the attack.
Emma Powerful, a spokesperson for IPOB, branded the fresh attack as barbarous in his response.
Emma said in a statement that the attack had revealed Nigeria’s security agencies as corrupt hypocrites.
He titled the statement, “Fulani killer herdsmen slaughtering farmers in Enugu would be taught a lesson in the language they understand”.
The statement read, “The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen, have once again exposed the hypocrisy of the compromised Nigeria military, police, and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Biafrans by the Fulani.
“The same double-faced and Fulani-controlled Nigerian security agencies hunting for the operatives of the Eastern Security Network ESN, are watching Fulani herdsmen as they continue their killing spree across Biafra land.
“Instead of halting these genocidal attacks against innocent Biafrans, the compromised and complicit Nigerian security agencies take pleasure in hunting and killing our volunteers defending our ancestral land. The massacre of innocent Biafrans at Ehamufu in Enugu State Wednesday morning unchallenged by the security agents is another confirmation of the criminal role of the Nigeria security agencies in the evil agenda of the Fulani in Nigeria.
“The barbaric attacks on the hapless people of Eha-amufu and Ogbuji communities in Isi-uzo local government has proven that Nigerian soldiers singular agenda in Biafra land is to be distracting the ESN and IPOB and thereby create the environment for Fulani Herdsmen to continue with their land-grabbing tendency and atrocities against Biafran communities.
“We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, therefore, want to remind the Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen and their partners in crime that they won’t succeed in Biafra land as long as we exist. Our gallant men will again teach them in the only language they understand. We did it before and they attested to that, and we shall do it again.”
