PORTHARCOURT — Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed to avenge the killing of Igbos in Obigbo local government area of State.
In a statement received by Daily Time TV on Wednesday via his Facebook page, the IPOB leader said the group will cease to exist if the deaths are not avenged.
“I tell you this: Obigbo will NOT be without CONSEQUENCES. It might take months, even years but it will come & it won’t be pretty. Whether the consequences will be judicial or extrajudicial is something I won’t say for now. But come, it will – in the fullness of time. Do not panic, we are coming.
“If Obigbo is not avenged, IPOB will cease to exist. Its better for heaven and earth to come to an end than for #ObigboMassacre to be swept under the carpet or erased from our hearts.
“We must remain calm, measured and decisive. I can assure every conscientious being and people of goodwill that #Obigbo will reshape politics in Africa. All our enemies and supporters of evil are being identified and will be dealt with,” Kanu said.
Meanwhile, the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra on Wednesday condemned what it described as ‘genocidal and atrocious’ activities of Nigeria Army against the people of Biafra in Oyigbo, River State.
A leader of the pro-Biafra group, Uchenna Madu, condemned the activities of the military at the 87th posthumous birthday anniversary of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu in Enugu, warning that Nigeria should not push Biafra agitators to arms conflict as it would be disastrous.
Describing Governor Nyesom Wike’s denial of his Igbo identity as unfortunate, Madu reminded him that the presidency or the Fulani cabal would never honour him for killing his people.
Wike had said he never ordered the killing of Igbo in Rivers State, describing the allegation against him as politically-motivated falsehood.
But Madu said, “MASSOB condemns the genocidal and atrocious activities of the Nigerian Army against the people of Biafra in Obigbo (Oyigbo). MASSOB described Governor Nyesom Wike’s denial of his Igbo identity as unfortunate and unstableness.
“MASSOB is begging the Federal Government not to push our members to arms conflict because the end is what nobody can tell.”
