- The community had linked the attack to threats by herdsmen who reportedly blamed IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, for their action
The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Thursday, threatened Fulani herders killing farmers in Enugu State.
IPOB vowed to teach them a lesson in the language they would understand.
At least eight persons were recently killed in Mgbuji community in Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The ambush carried out by herdsmen also left hectares of farmland destroyed, with a number of residents missing.
The community had linked the attack to threats by herdsmen who reportedly blamed IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, for their action.
Reacting, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, described the renewed attack as barbaric.
In a statement he issued, Powerful said the attack has exposed the Nigerian security agencies as hypocrites who are compromised.
The statement titled: ‘Fulani killer herdsmen slaughtering farmers in Enugu will be taught a lesson in the language they understand,’ partly reads: “The renewed barbaric and unprovoked attacks on different communities in Enugu State by Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen, have once again exposed the hypocrisy of the compromised Nigeria military, police and other security agencies supervising the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Biafrans by the Fulani.”
