The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has taunted some communities that chased away Eastern Security Network (ESN) militants, saying they are today facing Fulani massacre in their communities in Enugu State.
IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful made the remarks in a press release issued on Wednesday and made available to News Band.
Emma Powerful drew attention to the constant and numerous massacres of scores of people in Aguamede community Ehamufu in Isiuzo Council area of Enugu state.
He said that the traditional ruler, Igwe Christopher Nnamani, President General and youth leader of Ehamufu and its environs contributed in heavy measure to the Fulani massacre in their community.
According to him, “these people joined hands with Nigeria Government and chased ESN operatives out from their community in their desperation to ensure that Fulani take over the community and ESN operatives were moved out and Fulani came in to massacre them.
“ESN will not come again, you allowed Fulani terrorists to come; ESN was established and send batch of ESN security outfit into their communities but ESN was attacked by the community and many ESN members and IPOB members were killed and detained by the community and youth of the community.
“The communities involved has discovered scores of dead bodies who were massacred by Fulani jihadists and foot soldiers.
“Any community that pursued ESN operatives out from their place should not expect ESN operatives back to their home and they should wait for IPOB to ask them questions at appropriate time.
“The Nigeria military and police have failed to respond because they are behind and in support of the attacks by the Fulani terrorists who are massacring innocent citizens of Enugu State.
“We are not sure that they are not directly responsible for the massacres and mayhem witnessed by our people in Enugu Province.
“We want to let everyone know that these communities should know that because ESN is not coming to defend them since Nigeria they collaborated with the military and police to fight ESN and today they military has refused to come to their help.
“IPOB and ESN are not coming for them but let the Agendist and Nigeria army and police not blame ESN for not coming to the defense of our people in that area of our land.
“Our men in the communities were massacred in cold-blood without any reason and we promise them that Fulani will take over there in no distance time then; that ESN will revenge their death whether the Fulani terrorist military and police like to support Fulani to continue eliminating them.
“IPOB is making it open to ESN operatives not to move to these communities in Enugu State because we cannot afford to defend them.
“Since they don’t want us, Fulani must continue eliminating them because nobody is challenging them. Biafrans you must ask the traditional Ruler why they removed ESN from their place.
“Again, the numerous attacks and kidnapping going on in “four corner” Enugu State were perpetrated by commander of 82 division, Major General Umar Musa and Commissioner of Police.
“The newly army commander was transferred from Lagos State to Enugu to ensure he gives cover to Fulani jihadists to continue the elimination of Ndigbo.
“We are aware that not less than 10 persons were killed by herdsmen in Aguamede Community, Ehamufu town of Isi Uzo Local Government Area of Enugwu State in particular. We mourn them but ESN won’t come!
“The communities’ indigenes told us that the attack began on Saturday and continued on Monday afternoon and that more than 100 innocent men and women were murdered in cold-blood without reason in those areas of the State.
“The order and instruction have been given to ESN operatives not to move to these areas except “four corners” where Fulani kidnappers were rampaging and destroying innocent citizens of Biafra.
“We wonder why Fulani terrorists would be operating behind army and police check points.”
Emma Powerful continued: “Among those killed in one particular community were six women and four men while five others sustained machete injuries on several parts of their bodies and were later sent to the hospital.
“The area has witnessed constant attacks since the ESN camps were removed from their place from past year.
“The Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen has been killing them without mercy.
“The traditional ruler and his cabinet rascals have questions to answer and they have been invading the agrarian communities from neighbouring Benue State.
“The community said that the terrorizing herders invaded the community with the intention to kill every male person and that the attack on Monday lasted for over four hours with security agents refusing to intervene.
“The attack lasted for over 4 hours, yet no police, army or any other group of security agents is present in those communities even now.
“If ESN operatives were present, the Nigeria security agencies will come out to show their muscles.
“But as it stands, ESN will not come but we’ll ask them questions about the rubbish. What we need is information about these marauding Fulani terrorists.
“These terrorists came to wipe out entire communities but these communities did not know before that it was a plan to bring in Fulani to come and take over their land.
“Nobody should blame IPOB and ESN for what is going to happen in that area in the near future.
“Nigeria Government and police commissioner in Enugu prepare your propaganda because we must curtail this criminality, and senseless killing must stop in our land, ” he concluded. Read more.
