IPOB condemns attacks on women by Oba youths, issues ultimatum to Youth leader, others

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has condemned the recent attacks launched against some group of women by a politically funded youth group in Oba, Idemili South Local Government Area, Anambra State.

There was a previous report that the youths of Oba invaded a venue where IPOB women were having a conference themed ”Back To Our Root” on Sunday.

IPOB expressed bitterness over the attack, says the attack was sponsored by inconsequential politicians working with the Fulani -led Federal Government.

In a press statement signed by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful on Wednesday, the group issued a week ultimatum to the youth leader, the President General and the traditional ruler of Oba community to reveal the identity of the culprits or face the anger of IPOB.

Powerful also warned that any Oba youth involved in the act will regret being part of this evil act and must pay dearly, adding that IPOB will ensure that they won’t get away with it easily.

He expressed shock over the silence of prominent men and women of Oba since the incident took place, stressing that IPOB should not be blamed for any reaction.

The statement reads: “We the great family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, find distasteful, the recent attack by hired thugs who claimed to be Oba youths in Oba Idemili South LGA of Anambra State against our defenseless women. The attack was sponsored by inconsequential politicians working with the Fulani -led Federal Government.

“They rented some brainwashed Oba youths just to prove to their slave masters in Abuja and Lagos that they are still loyal to them. Those self-centered and treacherous Igbo politicians who think IPOB is a weakling will be surprised in no distant future.

“One thing is certain: any Oba youth involved in this act will regret being part of this evil act and must pay dearly. We must assure those sponsoring these criminals that IPOB will not let them go free unless they atone for their atrocities. You cannot commit a crime against IPOB women and members who were peacefully celebrating and showcasing African dishes in Oba on Sunday 12th of July 2020 and go free. IPOB operates everywhere in Biafraland and the world at large.

“It is unbelievable that since the attack on these unarmed women in Oba, nobody in Oba or Igbo land has ever come out to condemn this barbaric action of unscrupulous elements among Oba youths against IPOB.

“Therefore, nobody should blame IPOB when we reciprocate or pay them back in their coin. The attackers and their sponsors should get ready to reap the fruits of their labor.

“Aborji village youths in Oba that allowed themselves to be used by the enemies against our peaceful mothers and wives should know that they can’t escape justice. Before it gets too late, Oba community leaders should ask them to come now and pay for their atrocities and the damages they inflicted on innocent and peaceful movement. The earlier they do this the better for them because the day of reckoning is fast approaching.

“All those who participated in this atrocity should realize that we know their identities. There is no hiding place for them. We are calling on Oba elders, leaders, and those acclaimed politicians including those who sponsored them to make sure that they release those arrested by Fulani terrorist police. They must also take responsibility for those vehicles and properties destroyed during the attack on IPOB members.

“We are in the know of the plans by the Fulani terrorist government in Nigeria to use some of our Igbo people to set Igbo land on fire but it is quite unfortunate and clear to us that Oba youths and their facilitators are ignorant of this grand plot by their paymasters. Oba youths were deceived and lured into this mess but they must make atonement for their sins or brace up for the consequences of their evil action.

“The Nigerian police arrested many of IPOB members including innocent media practitioners covering the barbaric attack. This invasion and arrest happened when Oba youths were used by few politicians in Oba and police station in Idemili South to attack their fellow citizens who were fighting to deliver and liberate them from bondage Nigeria government and her Fulani terrorists in Nigeria police uniforms posted to our land to ensure that they monitor and destroy peace and good relationship between the people of Biafra.

“We are equally aware that those hired thugs in Oba and nearby communities were paid common One thousand Naira (1000) each by some inconsequential fellows and criminals to disrupt what IPOB is doing.

Nigerian police illegally arrested more than a hundred (100) members of IPOB since this attack and invasion took place in Oba. The police command in Awka once again adopted another round of house to house search in Oba and other communities searching for anybody suspected to be IPOB member.

“It is unfortunate that Oba youths challenged our women without knowing that they are challenging our men and not even giving respect to our mothers and wives. IPOB members, our mothers and wives arrested on Sunday by Nigeria police received serious torture and injuries because security operatives manhandled them without considering that they are women.

“We are calling on Governor Willy Obiano and Police Commissioner to release IPOB members and women arrested at Oba on Sunday by his men drafted to Oba in conjunction with Oba youths.

“This damages must be paid by Oba youths and their sponsors in this barbaric attack against IPOB women. We challenge Oba youths to wait for IPOB activities anywhere in Anambra State or Biafraland in general. The President General ( PG) and Oba youth President must provide those Oba youths involved in this act or they bear the consequences. Their baseless claims of ignorance is no excuse”, he concluded.
