The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has commended the southwest leaders for launching their independent security outfit; Operation Amotekun, while adding that it was proof that their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had been right about the jihadi agenda by the Fulani North.
Speaking via a press release signed by IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, which was made available to Obinwannem, IPOB expressed their support for the move saying it was a courageous action by the ‘south-west leaders to protect their people and their region from the evil hands of Fulani terrorists herdsmen and Nigerian government jihadi soldiers…”
They also likened Operation Amotekun to Biafra Security Service which was launched by Kanu in 2017. Regretting that those who antagonized Kanu when he launched BSS were part of those lauding Operation Amotekun, IPOB called on all and sundry to openly admit that “Kanu was always right.”
The entire press release reads thus;
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu commend southwest governors, elders, stakeholders and politicians for their doggedness and courage to protect their people and their region from the evil hands of Fulani terrorists herdsmen and Nigeria government jihadi soldiers- the systematic strategy and effort of the ruling Fulani cabal to continually provide financial and logistical support to Fulani terrorists and Islamic extremists in military and police uniforms to rampage and kill innocent citizens at will.
“This is not the first time in recent weeks that our leader’s position and approach has been vindicated by events and utterances from other ethnic groups within Nigeria.
The inescapable truth remains that Bishop Kukah’s commendable utterances about the Jihadi intent of the present regime in Nigeria and the formation of a Yoruba vigilante by OPC are all lines of reasoning and event consistently canvassed and championed by IPOB in the past. The fact remains that Nigeria as presently constituted is the greatest threat to life and peace.
“The Yoruba decision and effort to launch Operation Amotekun security outfit just like our leader launched BSS in 2017 is most commendable. What we find appalling however is that those who were at the forefront of misrepresenting and condemning our leader for having the vision and foresightedness to challenge Fulani terrorism in Nigeria are today praise-singing the introduction of Amotekun.
Even the shamelessly treacherous Ohaneze Ndigbo and southeast Governors Forum that actively connived with their Fulani masters to launch a deadly military invasion in Biafraland on the back of the launch of BSS are today openly praising Yoruba leaders for backing OPC’s Amotekun project when they themselves heartlessly sold out IPOB for a pot of porridge.
“Notwithstanding the barefaced envy and jealousy directed towards IPOB by the Efulefu political class and sections of uninformed talking heads, we IPOB are delighted that we continue to set the pace of radical thinking and social change within and outside Nigeria.
IPOB wholeheartedly welcome Amotekun and say good morning to those who out of ignorance, poor sense of vision, lack of reasoning and self-consuming jealousy fought against the formation of BSS. They should cover their faces in shame if they have any face left after this.
“We believe the time has come for all those who ignorantly questioned the Modus Operandi of IPOB and the vision of Biafra liberation as boldly preached by our leader to tender an unreserved public apology. History and events have continued to vindicate IPOB and its methods. The time has come for every sensible person and ethnic group to swallow their shame and publicly acknowledge that IPOB is always right.
“Now that South-West Governors and politicians have openly and commendably armed and supported OPC militants to defend Yorubaland isn’t this a clear indication that the black market and thoughtless proscription of IPOB by Fulani government supported by Ohaneze Ndigbo,
South-East Governors and Lagos/Abuja politicians only succeeded in making the entire Eastern region a fertile ground for Fulani Jihadi expansionism and impetus for Miyetti Allah terrorism and territorial expansion? IPOB remains the only movement psychologically designed and primed to defend the entire East against any aggression from Fulani terrorists. This too is an inescapable fact.
“It is about time people acknowledged openly and without shame that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is always right.”
