Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari will be visiting Enugu state on December 22, 2016, and have threatened to die with the President should he step his foot on Enugu or any part of the area, the group calls Biafraland.
Describing Buhari as “the killer of Biafrans”, they alleged that he has killed over two thousand unarmed and peaceful Biafrans since June 17, 2015, stressing that the President is not allowed into any part of Biafraland until all those detained are released, and Amnesty International report investigated.
In a statement issued on Monday by its spokespersons, Barrister Emma Nmezu, Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya, IPOB warned that “any governor or Igbo politician that receives Buhari in Enugu will have himself or herself to blame”.
“The (IPOB) have received information that Retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari who committed treason on December 31, 1983, and was rewarded with Nigeria’s presidency after 32 years, will be visiting Enugu-Biafraland on the 22nd of December, 2016.
“We warn any governor or Igbo politician that receives Buhari in Enugu will have himself or herself to blame. We make it public that should there be a breakdown of law and order in Enugu on the 22nd of December, greedy Igbo politicians will have themselves to blame. Any Igbo governor or politician that is found among those hobnobbing with Buhari the killer of Biafrans becomes an enemy of the people and shall pay dearly for it.
“Until all those detained are released, and Amnesty International report investigated, Buhari is not allowed into any part of Biafraland. Let Buhari know that if he (Buhari) comes to Enugu or any part of Biafraland, we will die with him there.
“Any Governor or Igbo politician who is stupid enough to invite Buhari into our capital will be taught a lesson that will reverberate in history. They should try us and see.”
