IPOB condemns Lekki Massacre, urge protesters to press further
The Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the clampdown on peaceful protesters by men of the Nigerian military on Tuesday, at Lekki Toll gate, Lagos State.
The freedom fighting group has also asked the protesters not to give up, adding that it is time for all indigenous nationalities to come out to support this movement pioneered by the brave youths.
Speaking via a statement credited to IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB called on all the revolutionists to organize themselves together and bring down every property belonging to former Governor Ahmed Tunubu.
The group also promised that it is working tirelessly with its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to ensure that the whole world hears about this atrocity and takes necessary action, adding that the barbaric attacks on peaceful and unarmed citizens whose only crime is demanding an end to police brutality and bad governance won’t go unpunished.
“We call on every youth, man and woman to join the protests now. This is the time everybody should identify with this movement to rescue our collective future and destiny from suffocation by the Fulani janjaweed and jihadist cabal running Nigeria in the name of the dead Buhari. Every indigenous nationality must come out to support this movement pioneered by our brave youths. It will be dangerous if Nigerians allow this effort to die down.
“We, therefore, call on everybody never to allow themselves to be intimidated by Fulani terrorist soldiers because that is their strategy. The Fulani want to instill fear into the minds of Nigerians to intimidate everyone into subjugation and continue with their killing spree unchallenged. We won’t cave in. We must be willing to resist them for the sake of our children. If we fail to stand our ground now and defend ourselves against these vampires, our generations unborn may never be free from Fulani bondage.
“We urge the youths not to be deterred by the curfews being imposed by some state governors bent on impressing their Fulani slave masters. The protesters must march on and not back off! It’s a strategy to take them out of the streets but they must prevail.
“IPOB is calling on all the revolutionists to organize themselves together and bring down every property belonging to former Governor Ahmed Tinubu who has now escaped to France. He can’t aid and abate the killing of peaceful protesters in Lekki and expect to enjoy his stolen wealth in peace. Other wicked politicians masterminding this carnage or supporting Fulani terrorist government tormenting Nigerians should also be made to reap the reward of their atrocities. Any Southerner aiding this evil regime masterminding the present barbaric attacks on peaceful citizens in Lagos and other states of the nation is a traitor and must receive the reward of traitors.
“It’s only ironical that the Nigerian Army, police and other security personnel run away from terrorists but derive joy in slaughtering law-abiding citizens they are being paid to protect. We encourage the youths to remain resolute and march on until all their demands are met. Nobody should be discouraged. The protest should be sustained until the end. We must not disappoint our gallant youths who have already paid the supreme sacrifice in this struggle.
“We call on the international community and civilized countries across the world to come to the rescue of the peaceful protesters to avoid more bloodshed. We also call on America, Canada Germany, Russia Israel, United Nations, Africa Union, European Union, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and other relevant Human Rights organizations across the globe to take record of what is happening in Nigeria and come intervene.
“They should not fold their arms and watch the ongoing barbarity and carnage being perpetrated by impostor parading himself as General Muhammadu Buhari and we are aware of Fulani terrorist plans against indigenous tribes in Nigeria. If the world fails to take action now against this inhumanity, history will not be fair to them.
