Tuesday ushered in another bombshell from Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the defunct indigenous People Of Biafra. He took to his Twitter page to point an accusing finger to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, the incumbent governor of Abia State.
The governor was accused of inviting soldiers and policemen to the state. These security operatives according to him, have been carrying out serial and extrajudicial killings in Umahia, the state capital.
He posited that the only solution to the current state of insecurity in Nigeria, including the alarming rate at which people are killed, is the collective awareness of the people and the realization of the fact that the country’s security operatives are part of the “Fulani Terror Achitecture”.
Nnamdi KANU wrote: ” Those attacking Umahia right now are not herdsmen but Fulani terrorists in Army and Police imported into Abia by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.”
“Any day we wake up to the fact that Nigerian Army and Police are part of Fulani Terror Architecture, only then will this menace stop.”
Meanwhile, Arewa Consultative Forum issued an advisory to the northerners, at the assassination of Ahmed Gulak, though vehemently condemned by the Ohaneze Indigbo Worldwide. This was after a note of warning had been sounded to the northerners by the ACF as to remaining in the north. He specifically warned them against embarking on any journey to the southern region, except for issue of life and death.
It is understandable that there is a need for a serious warning after the gruesome murder of Ahmed Gulak by some gunmen suspected to be operatives of the Eastern Security Network, including members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“Unless the trips are absolutely necessary and of compelling nature, like matters of life and death, they should not be made.” Audu Ogbe warned.
This statement of the ACF was said to be capable of fanning the ember of discord between the regions by Alex Ogbonnia, the National Publicity Secretary. He condemned the narrative that the southeast has been taken over by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) and unknown gunmen. Ahmed Gulak’s painful assassination received the total condemnation of Governor Hope Uzodinma, Imo people and groups including Ohaneze.
