The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned masterminds of kidnapping and banditry in the South East that criminality, in whatever form, is not in the interest of the struggle.

Spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful, in a statement, yesterday, vowed that perpetrators of such heinous acts would soon meet their Waterloo.

He said: “IPOB doesn’t kill and must not kill anybody to have Biafra as a sovereign nation. Biafra will come, but not through car snatching, kidnappings and killings going on in the communities in Imo, Abia, Enugu, Anambra and Ebonyi states.

“Igbo youths, please shine your eyes, the green snakes are in the green grass. The enemies have armed some of us to be harmful to fellow Igbo men and women while impersonating IPOB.”

Powerful, who said the group would soon give an update on its activities and the struggle for the restoration of Biafra nation soon, regretted that most of the atrocities committed were perfected to smear the integrity of the group before the public. Some of the hoodlums, he noted, were still hiding under the sit-at-home directive long suspended by their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to commit various crimes in the zone.

“We knew why our leader stopped the Monday sit-at-home order which we are not obliged to expose to the public.

“Unfortunately, some Biafrans who, on social media, are ranting and fighting IPOB leadership without knowing what is happening or going on and where the struggle stands at the moment.

“But, in a short while, some revelations will be made concerning Biafra agitation.

“It is a sacrilege to be part of such heinous crime against our own people. If our ancestors acted in such a way to themselves, we wouldn’t have been able to see today.

“We are cautioning those claiming to kidnap because of non-compliance with the non-existent Monday sit-at-home order to stop. If you are fighting for Biafra freedom and wish that Nnamdi Kanu be released from the DSS dungeon, you must stop all forms of criminalities in Biafra land. However, if you enjoy spilling the blood of a fellow innocent Biafran, bear in mind that you will be rewarded in the same coin.             

“We don’t know why infiltrators paid to be unfortunate disciple to Nnamdi Kanu will recruit, brain wash and arm criminals and some misguided Biafrans to maim, kidnap, murder and destroy fellow Biafrans’ properties, so as to enforce already suspended Monday sit-at-home.

“We are calling those brainwashed and misguided Biafrans used by the paid infiltrators to impersonate IPOB to pull out of such a gang. But if you continue kidnapping and killing innocent citizens because of Monday Sit-at-home, bear in mind that you must be killed because you are not fighting for Biafra restoration or the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“If you’re among the criminal gangs contracted to continue to harass our people, IPOB and ESN operatives must not spare you, unless you repent. If, indeed, you’re passionate to fight for Biafra freedom, how come you didn’t join ESN and do the legitimate work for Biafra freedom? Those who have been brainwashed into terrorising our people should stop, repent and revert to IPOB strategy and operations or regret your actions,” Powerful warned.
