INDIGENOUS People of Biafra (IPOB) on Saturday said the call by Katsina Governor Bello Masari on residents to acquire arms for self-defence against bandits had vindicated its leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who consistently advised Nigerians, particularly Biafrans to defend themselves against Jihadists.
Masari, a few days ago, officially approved resort to self-help and asked his people to acquire weapons in defence against terror and banditry, stressing it was morally wrong to submit meekly to bandits without any attempt to defend themselves.
But the pro-Biafran group, in a statement by its Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful said the Governor’s position was a wake-up call for the Southeast Governors to rise from their slumber.
It added it was time for indigenous nations in Nigeria to stand together and resist all forms of terrorism, insisting that any failure on their part might be regrettable.
The statement partly reads: “This call by the Katsina State Governor has vindicated our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been consistently advising Nigerian and particularly Biafrans to defend themselves against the jihad Fulani terrorists. Our leader is the man who saw tomorrow, everything he said has fully happened.
“This is a clarion call on South-East Governors who do not understand the tactics and gimmicks which Fulani are playing in their desperation to conquer and Islamise indigenous people living in Nigeria.
“The politically correct South-East governors and political elite should stop living in the past. They had better wake from their slumber and decode the obvious signals of the call by Masari.
“Let Nigerians prepare because the much talked about Fulani agenda is about to be fully executed. Our Leader Nnamdi Kanu warned Nigerians but they called him a terrorist instead of appreciating him.
“The Fulanis are bent on making Nigeria to another Afghanistan. You may doubt it but watch out for it. The signs are obvious.
“However, we can assure them that they will not succeed in Biafra land. We are prepared to repel Fulani in their quest to take over our ancestral land. IPOB is peaceful but they should not dare us or take our peaceful disposition for weakness.
“Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu saw this and knew that a time like this would come. He formed a very formidable security outfit by December 2020, and the gallant Eastern Security Network ESN operatives will always live up to their mandate.
“The recent state position of the Katsina State Governor has proven what our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was saying about Fulani and their agents. Now is the time to stand together and resist them. If the indigenous nations in Nigeria fail to stand now, they may never stand again!”
