Owo Massacre: IPOB Reacts To Attack On Catholic Church, Reveals Those Responsible
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the attacks in St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
IPOB linked the attack that left about 50 people dead to Fulani terrorists.
The spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, urged Christians to stop depending on the Nigerian Government to ensure their safety and security.
In a statement by Powerful, IPOB claimed that security agencies in Nigeria have only one interest, that of Fulanis.
The statement by Powerful reads partly: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu condemn the Fulani terrorist’s attack on Catholic Church in Owo Ogun state today been Sunday 5th of June 2022.
“IPOB had repeatedly suggested that Christians should stop their dependence on the Government of Nigeria for the security of life and properties; the reason is that the current regime has only one interest and that is Fulani’s interest. Fulani terrorists masquerading as politicians and security agents are the ones heading Nigeria Army, Police and other security agencies and are responsible for the recruitment of terrorists who were massacring innocent Christians, Muslims and Non-Muslims.
“We are equally advising the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, to stop condemning attacks from these terrorists from the Sahel or praying for God’s intervention and start acting in defence of Christians in Nigeria. “CONDEMN” do not raise people from graves; therefore, we suggest again to the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN that the only remedy is to be prepared to withstand the terrorists and jihadists who were sponsored by unfortunate politicians and the Government of Nigeria to eliminate every citizen in the country.”
IPOB assured that the Eastern Security Network, ESN, has the training to confront terrorists causing insecurity in the Southern part of the country.
The group called for the support of politicians, clergymen, and Nigerians in the fight against insecurity.
“All children of God and religious bodies throughout Biafraland should as a matter of urgency, support this call now that we have the right people and perfect arrangements to safeguard our land,” he added.
