The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has expressed rage over recent activities of officers of the Nigerian army in the South-East, particularly in Abia State.
The outlawed pro-Biafra group expressed their displeasures as a followup reaction to the killing of Chimaobi Nwogu, a commercial motorcycle operator by a happy-trigger soldier in Aba.
Recall that the motorcyclist was allegedly killed over his refusal to pay N100 daily illegal toll at Ohanze, in Obingwa LGA of the State.
In their reactions, the IPOB called for the immediate dismantling of multiple military checkpoints across South-East.
The group made this known in a press release signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
The statement by the IPOB claimed that the Ndigbo were being punished by the Northern-dominated army for opposing the controversial Ruga settlement.
The statement by the group reads; “The unprovoked attack and unnecessary killing of Biafrans by Fulani dominated Nigerian Army throughout Biafranland has taken another gruesome dimension since the emphatic rejection of Fulani Ruga settlements and National Life Stock Programmes (NLSP) by Biafrans.”
“That a Nigerian Army chased a young man into his village and shot him dead in his compound in front of his wife and family is wickedness taken too far.”
