IPOB recently revealed this via a press statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, by launching a military raid on unarmed civilians in the Eastern part of Nigeria, FG has officially declared war against Biafrans, and there could be consequences.
IPOB added that the military has no right to launch an attack on ESN, a mere vigilante group protecting the people of the Eastern region against terrorists and killer herdsmen, while bandits keep disturbing the peace in Nigeria.
His words, “We wish to bring to the attention of the whole world, that the Nigeria military has at last, brought war to Biafra land. Supported by other security agencies including police and the Department of State Services, DSS, they came with military jets, tanks and heavy war equipment against us.”
“Yes, the second Nigeria/Biafra war has begun! It begun on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at Orlu in Imo State, Biafra land.”
“The Nigeria military has simultaneously launched both land and air attacks on us. After the genocidal war of 1967-1970 in which they killed over 5 million innocent Biafrans, they have come again to bomb Biafrans under the pretext that they are hunting the gallant personnel of Eastern Security Network ESN guarding our forests against killer herdsmen and terrorists on rampage in our land.”
“Days before the raid, they first abducted a synagogue priest, Mazi Egole and his house hold, branding them IPOB members. Then on February 16, they abducted Mrs NGOZI UMEADI who they learnt took care of those injured during the #EndSARS protest.”
“Not done yet, they took Dr. Stephen Irochi of Multicare Hospital and some injured #EndSARS protesters from Obigbo receiving treatment at the hospital.”
“The government which could not defend Biafrans against incessant unprovoked attacks against indigenous Nigerians has now mobilised its land and airforce against ESN patriotically and voluntarily doing the job that Nigeria security forces wickedly refused to do. The crime of ESN is defending locals against Fulani herdsmen.”
“Orlu and its environs are now a theatre of war declared by the Nigeria Government against innocent Biafrans. Scores of innocent civilians have already fallen casualty! Orlu and its neighbouring Orsu LGAs have been under heavy bombardment by the Nigeria Airforce since yesterday, February 18, 2021.”
“We have no choice but to defend our ancestral land. We have complained enough, written petitions but the world turned blind eyes.”
“The media refused to give us audience. Nobody seems interested in our story but like the Jews we must look unto our God and courageously fight back like heroes. In the end Biafra will come!.”
